Presentation: "Intentional Software"

Time: Monday 16:15 - 17:15

Location: C103 Music Hall

Abstract: Intentional Software is pioneering a radical new software approach where business domain experts collaborate in a new, more effective way with software developers. Domain experts create, analyze and collaborate on “business domain code” in the domain language of the business. Whenever the domain experts are satisfied, the software developer processes the domain code into applications. Similar to how spreadsheets empowered business users, businesses will innovate faster and accelerate software creation and maintenance. Software developers are still responsible for the software created, but instead of coding every (change in) business requirements, they concentrate on the job they do best: creating clean, reusable and reliable code.
