AADL In Practice is (finally) there!

This is the first practical book on Model-Based Engineering (MBE). Are you tired of all the boring academic papers and expensive books on Model-Based Engineering that focus on theory? Have you ever spend countless hours to figure out how to really apply AADL or MBE?

This is why this book exists. This is a practical way to learn and apply the core concepts of Model-Based Engineering. In 150 pages, I guide you through the main concepts of AADL and show how to use it to design and analyze a real-time, critical systems (a safe driving car).

150 pages. Efficient. Practical. Affordable.

About the author

My name is Julien Delange and I am a software engineer living in San Francisco. I got my PhD in France, worked at the European Agency, at Carnegie Mellon University and now, at Amazon Web Services. You can learn more about me on my personal website.

I am a user of AADL since 2008 and worked with most of the users and tool developers. I have seen the technology being used in aerospace, avionics, medical and automotive applications and participated to tools like OSATE, Ocarina or more globally, TASTE.

A lot of people are complaining about the lack of up-to-date educational resources available. Considering my background, I thought I would probably be the most appropriate person to write a complete, comprehensive and affordable book and AADL In Practice was born.
