Let's play: Lego meets Papyrus UML


For many of us, Lego is a reminder of our childhood and how much fun it can be to use standardized bricks to build something awesome. Maybe this is also how many years later we are still amazed how to model systems with standardized components with UML. For 20 years UML has been around to help software developers, system architects and many other people with modelling. Today it is a widespread language across industry and academia, however mostly it is still applied with commercial closed-source tools. In contrast to those tools Papyrus finally offers a comprehensive and extensible open-source software solution for UML.

In this talk let's take a 35 minutes trip back to our childhood with Papyrus4Lego. First, we will discover how simple it is to learn modeling UML with Papyrus. Second we will show you how we built a customized Lego DSL on top of Papyrus including customized tooling.
If you are a user of UML, a tool smith, intend to build a modeling tool or if you just want to take a trip back to your Lego childhood, this session is definitely for you.

The demo was pretty cool! Do you have source code somewhere by any chance? I'd be curious to see what it looks like. Thanks!
