Jim van Dam
Jim started as a knowledge engineer in the 80's. Model based software development has been his main interest since 1985. He started with case-tools, moved on to tailor made MDSD environments and currently uses the Eclipse MDSD tooling and the DSL toolkit from MS. He developed a DSL and tooling for modeling user interfaces enabling platform independent front-end development: StUIML (Standard User Interface Modeling Language). A StUIML predecessor was used in dozens of applications generating both rich and thin client front-ends.
