Oslo and new declarative language ‘D’ to be unvelied at Microsoft’s PDC 2008

The PDC postponed in 2007 will give people plenty to talk about in October.

I am particularly looking forward to the unveiling of Oslo, and getting my hands on the CTP.  I have been a Domain Driven Design advocate for a while now, and believe it is import to have a good vision for the model and how it is mapped back to implementation.  Oslo is all about modeling and is set to include:

  1. a ‘tool’ for so the BA types can visualise the problem domain
  2. a new domain specific language ‘D’ for mapping the model down to SQL.
  3. a (SQL) repository for storing the above

Microsoft has done a good job making most of .NET framework core libraries flexible and extensible, so let’s hope this will be a better offering then the Entity Framework V1, which was very limiting.  I still use NHibernate and see no reason to switch camps until they improve the design.
