Broadcast date: January 13th, 2021 – Language: English

This time we have as a guest the CTO of the Object Management Group (OMG) Dr. Jason McC. Smith. We talk to him about how standards like the UML, UAF or SysML are developed at the OMG and in general how the OMG works. We will explain it using SysML v2 as an example, which is currently being developed by the OMG. There are many questions we want to ask Jason:

Who is behind the standards? Who decides what goes into a standard and what doesn’t? How can you get involved in the development of the standards? What is the relationship with ISO? Where did the OMG come from and what is planned for the future? What does RFI, RFP, RFC, RTF, FTF, AB, TC, TM mean?

I’m sure we’ll come up with more questions during the talk, or you can ask your questions during the live session via the comments feature on YouTube.

You can be there live on the Youtube livestream on January 13, 2021 at 7 pm or later on YoutubeSpotifyiTunes, Amazon Music, or Google Podcasts.

    Yes. Presume active OMG participation will consume 25% of your work time. As a minimim. FYI: Before I retired from US Department of Defense, I was DoD standards lead, served as OMG Liaison Chair (with ISO, NATO, Open Group…and all), and very active on Unified Architecture Framework (UAF), less so with SysML & other specs. Enlightened management understood. But some other DoD managers couldn’t understand why this couldn’t be done in about a total of 8 hours (1 day) per year without travel and including email and on-line. Figure much more than 25%.

      Thank you, Leonard! It is worth any minute – you give a lot to the community and do something meaningful and good, and at the same time, you get an incredible amount. Besides super nice contacts and friends, you learn a lot. Much more than any training could teach you.
