I’m heading to Atlanta to talk about “Microsoft Oslo” – oh wait – to talk about the SQL Server Modeling at ALEMUG on Wednesday, December 2.
Actually I’ll be talking about MCsla, which is the prototype domain specific language and runtime I created for CSLA .NET using the SQL Server Modeling tools. It is a good topic, because I get to talk about designing and defining a DSL with a custom grammar, using the m.exe and mx.exe tools to compile DSL code into instance data, and then defining a schema so that data can be loaded into SQL Server tables. Tables that you can view (and edit) using “Quadrant”, or any other SQL Server tools of your choice.
In short, nearly every part of SQL Server Modeling gets used, and the DSL code actually executes as a WPF application – so it is an end-to-end prototype solution.
So if you are in the Atlanta area, maybe I’ll see you there!
