Here are the details of this event.
Microsoft code-name “Oslo” includes the ability to define your own domain specific language (DSL), a metadata repository hosted in SQL Server and a graphical tool (“Quadrant”) to edit that metadata. One part of the Oslo vision is that you might define a DSL, build code in your language, compile that code into the repository and then create a runtime to dynamically execute that metadata. Taking this vision and combining it with the popular CSLA .NET framework, the result is MCsla. This is a prototype DSL grammar, repository schema and runtime that dynamically creates and executes CSLA .NET business objects with a WPF UI. The result is a fully functional application that you can create with a fraction of the code you’d need to write with traditional programming techniques. Learn how MCsla was created and how it works in this rapid-fire walk through the depths of the Olso technology.
