2nd ArchiMate modelling bash

From CETISwiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The main objective of the 'bash is simply to let you work on a bit of modelling of your choosing with as many colleagues and experts on hand as possible. Learning by doing, together. At the same time, we'll explore how the community principles we agreed during the previous bash have shaped practice.

For those who don't have a lot of experience with ArchiMate yet, we will organise an introductory session in the morning.



The event will take place at St. Andrews University, in the Gateway Building (The Gateway is building 18 on this PDF map)

Information about how to get to St. Andrews is available on the university website. Information about where to stay is available from the town's information site.

Who can come?

Anyone with experience in ArchiMate modelling who wants to learn from others, and is willing to share what they've learned in turn can come to the modelling bash.

While many of the participants are likely to be from the JISC's Flexible Service Delivery programme, we're keen to involve ArchiMate modellers from other sectors and places. Not least because we'll also explore if and how we can sustain an archimate work group beyond this 'bash.

For those who don't have much experience yet, there is an introductory session in the morning. In that session, the fundamentals of the ArchiMate language will be covered together with a hands-on tutorial about the open source Archi ArchiMate editor. Bring laptops!


Registration is available at modelling bash registration page


The event is free to attend.
