Take a walk into the future!
EVE could be the start of a paradigm shift. A possible
future could look like this:
It is not necessary to learn programing languages anymore. And you
do not use letters or crypted words nobody is really understanding
to give a machine instructions. You are writing your instrucions in
symbols connected by links to symbolize how they work together - finally
it will be your special model symbolizing your programm. You know
- people easier understand symbolic pictures than cryptic words -
others (and not only computer scientists) will be able to understand
your programms! And it is easier to make pictures multinational than
It's easier to update a model than code because because you easier
get a cloue which elements are central or not, what is linked with
something else even if you were not the one who engineered this model.
Shared working will be easier because the connections between moduls
are well defined in a model and everybody is able to understand how
things are working together.
There could be a community sharing models or webservices. Webservice
gateways in locations like airports, universities, motels, shopping
areas etc. will give you informations which webservice is available
and could be used.
There are some efforts to use models for programming but nothing so
consequent like EVE.
