DSM training and certification program

The DSM Training and Certification Program is an intensive, 2-day training course for professionals looking to gain a greater insight into the rapidly evolving field of Domain-Specific Modeling (DSM). The main portion of the program addresses the guidelines for implementing a DSM solution: how to identify the necessary language constructs, different ways of building code generators, how to keep generators simple by refactoring code into a domain framework, and how to build tool support for your modeling language. Participants will try their hand and learn these skills in practice through various exercises taken from their individual domain using the world's leading DSM environment, MetaEdit+. The program will also include a special management focused module which will address the organizational and management-level issues surrounding DSM adoption.

Each program is customized to fit the individual needs of the customer and will be provided by leading experts in the field of DSM. Participants will receive a Certification of Completion, reflecting their advanced training in the areas of domain-specific language and code generator development.
