    Other People's Blogs

    I try to spend more time writing original content for this site and less time simply pointing at other people's stuff. However, you'll notice the lack of updates around here lately. Things are busy at home - my wife and I are expecting our second child...

    DMD 2 DD - Thanks Modelisoft!

    • 1 Comments
    Anyone who's played with the DSL toolkit knows that it's a 50/50 experience. Building the domain model means using a pretty straight forward designer (itself a DSL). Building a desinger means groveling around in a really ugly XML file. I hear that the...
