Workshop on PLE and Variability
On Monday this week I was taking part in a workshop on product line engineering and variability
at SE 2009 in Kaiserslautern (actually, on paper, I was a co-organizer. But Klaus Marquardt did all the work :-))
It was a very interesting workshop because a number of very experienced and interesting people took part. So the aspect of getting to know potential collaborators worked out very well.
But also the workshop itself was good. Klaus made everybody present their topic within five minutes on a single flipchart. Much more engaging than the typical PowerPoint stuff! And in the afternoon we had several breakout groups where people reported to really have learned something (I did, certainly).
So thanks to all the participants for making this a fun day.
PS: maybe at some point we are actually going to write up some workshop proceedings. I will publish them on the blog.
