Juha-Pekka Tolvanen, MetaCase CEO
Dr. Juha-Pekka Tolvanen is the CEO of MetaCase and co-founder of the DSM Forum. He has been involved in model-driven development and tools, notably metamodeling and code generators, since 1991. He has acted as a consultant world-wide for modeling language development, authored a book on Domain-Specific Modeling, and written over 80 articles for various software development magazines and conferences.
Juha-Pekka is a regular speaker at industry events and conferences — with keynotes at Code Generation Conference and ACM/IEEE Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems, and panels at Architecture&Design World, OOPSLA/SPLASH, OOP and SPLC. Juha-Pekka co-started the OOPSLA workshops on Domain-Specific Modeling in 2001 and has been on the organizing committee since. He is also a member of IFIP WG8.1 Method Engineering task group and has co-edited a special issues on Domain-Specific Modeling for IEEE Software and SoSyM Journal.
Juha-Pekka holds a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland (best national dissertation award 1999). He received his Master's degree (econ.) in 1990 and Licentiate degree in 1994. He is also an adjunct professor (docent on software development methods) at the University of Jyväskylä.
Juha-Pekka's hobbies vary depending on the season of the year, and include primarily sailing or skiing.
