TheServerSide.NET has an interview with Keith Short, one of the principals behind Whitehorse. He talks with Ted about Model-Driven Architecture and UML/CASE tools, why they failed, and why Microsoft isn’t repeating the mistakes of past generations
Keith Short – Manager, Microsoft Enterprise Frameworks and Tools Architecture Team
Keith Short leads the Enterprise Frameworks and Tools Architecture Team at Microsoft. He helped lead design of the Information Engineering Facility from Texas Instruments Inc., now Advantage Gen from Computer Associates Inc. He was later named a TI Fellow and became CTO for Software at TI. He contributed to UML 1.0, and lectures at conferences and seminars world wide. He holds a Bachelors degree in Computer Science from the University of Lancaster, and a Ph.D in Computer Science from the University of East Anglia.
One of the core differences is that Keith’s team doesn’t want to do code gen. He discusses MDA, and what is going on there, and how Microsoft wants to do something different.
