About the Presenter

Presenter Image Campbell McCausland

Campbell McCausland is a Software Development Engineer, working on the BridgePoint xtUML product line at Mentor Graphics. A 15-year BridgePoint veteran, McCausland joined the BridgePoint team in 1996 from Napier University in Edinburgh where he was course leader for the Master of Science in Software Engineering. His interest in model-driven software development goes back to his work at UNISYS in the late 1980s when he was introduced to the early software design tool, Teamwork.

Campbell's first major contribution to the BridgePoint product was MC-Java, the model compiler that is now the cornerstone of BridgePoint's self-hosting capability. He initiated the BridgePoint port from C++ to its current Java implementation, simultaneously moving it under the Eclipse infrastructure. He later created the first self- hosted Verifier implementation and, shortly afterwards, added the Verifier-Java interface. Campbell graduated from the University of Bristol, UK.
