Abstract [en]

Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) play an important role in both practice and education. But developing them is challenging, because a DSL must ultimately satisfy a large and complex set of user/customer requirements to fulfil its intended role, and neither requirements nor users are fully available at all times during the development process. Requirements can be elicited using agile methods but such methods assume the availability of the users. The situation is further complicated when the user base is primarily students and when enhanced learning is a key requirement. In this paper we propose developing DSLs, especially educational ones, as online applications. We analyze how this can help requirement elicitation and learning. Being online brings language development closer to the user, yielding new opportunities to improve and accelerate the language design process. It is also well-matched to agile methods, since web- based analytics provide an abundant source of data that integrates naturally into the development process. As an example, we consider applying the method to Acumen, a DSL designed to support teaching Cyber-Physical Systems.
