First Things First:

  • You might ask: "When is the next quarterly community briefing webcast?" Don't worry: You didn't miss a webcast! 
  • The quick answer is: The next briefing webcast will be scheduled when we have new and useful information to share.

The target timeframe for the next in series webcast (after February 2007) had been April-May, but as it happens the next briefing will need to be delivered in the near future, so we can share rich and recent information on SML implementations, model samples, and authoring practices.

Other Things SML:

There are Modeling Community activities on-going now, and plans for future modeling community activities:

  • Earlier this year, I noted that Microsoft Architect Andrea Westerinen had a presentation and workshop at the Microsoft Architect Insight conference.
    FYI: You can download Ms. Westerinen's slide deck, as well as other software documents and security architecture presentations, here: http://www.microsoft.com/uk/msdn/architecture/architectinsight/2007download.mspx
      
  • The World Wide Web Consortium has invited W3C members to join into a SML Working Group, chartered to produce W3C Recommendations for SML.
    FYI: You can find the membership form and more information on the Working Group here:"

  • There will be buzz and briefings for the systems/services modeling community around the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference timeframe.
