Textbook "Metamodeling for Method Engineering"

This 400+ pages textbook is a guide to the foundations of method engineering, a developing field concerned with the definition of techniques for designing software systems. The approach is based on metamodeling, the construction of a model about a collection of other models. The book applies the metamodeling approach in five case studies, each describing a solution to a problem in a specific domain. Suitable for classroom use, the book is also useful as a reference for practitioners. The six case study chapters all use ConceptBase. You can download a free pre-print of book chapter 3 "Metamodeling and method engineering with ConceptBase".

Slides for a metamodeling course

These slides can be used for a course based on the above textbook, or for any course that introduces into metamodeling. The slides are made available both as PDF and ODF and are distributed under a Creative Commons License. Channel

This YouTube Channel features short videos from screen captures to highlight how certain tasks can be performed by the ConceptBase user interface.
