This paper introduces the C.C programming language, which is designed for automated model transformations. The C.C language is outcome of our research and has been implemented in the CASE tool of a British software company. This technology started to be used by companies in the Central Europe and for business and software engineering courses at several Czech and Slovak universities, Loughborough University in the UK and Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. An interesting side-effect of this technology is C.C language application as a first teaching language in algorithmization, programming and software engineering courses.
