Jean Bézivin (@jbezivin) (see slide 4 here) has a great slide about how the number of world-wide professional developers grows linearly respect to time, and at the same time, the need for software grows exponentially.Mobile application is a specific market where the explosion for new software are more demanding than never before. The obvious conclusion, developers are not going to be enough to cope with the demand without improving their productivity in orders of magnitude and/or lowering the entry barrier for non-programmers to create applications. You know, probably it is me as an MDD/MDE practitioner could be biased, but to my best knowledge, I strongly think that Model Driven Engineering is in an excellent position to play crucial role in both worlds:
- For professional developers: to provide tools to provide such productivity improvement.
- For end users: to provide tools as easy as possible to allow non-programmers to solve their common tasks.
