A couple weeks back I answered some interview questions regarding my impressions of Microsoft’s Oslo. One of my answers found its way into an article you can read on ComputerWorld entitled Microsoft eyes Oslo as game-changer for application development. It’s a good article with some interesting perspective. You’ll find my quote on page three. I wouldn’t say that I’m skeptical of the intentions of Oslo, but I AM just curious to see how they pull it off. So, maybe I’m skeptical of their implementation! The point I was trying to make is that expansive models aren’t easy to either design or maintain, and attempts that I’ve seen so far to synchronize the model with the implementation have been lacking. We’ll see if the Oslo repository and “M” language are actually game changers. Here’s hoping.
I’m not making it to PDC this year, but since I live close by, I hope to pop in on some extracurricular events.
