So after all the excitement of the PDC, now TechEd Europe is upon us and we're finally talking in some more depth about where we're going in Visual Studio 2010 with DSL Tools.
Firstly, quite a few of you have been pinging me to ask about the relationship between DSL Tools and Oslo. See Keith and Stuart's posts on the subject. Clearly both teams have their distinct focus and paths forward - As Keith says, I'm sure we'll be looking at ways forward that bring customer investments in either track closer together as time progresses.
The way I like to think about it that although we're both concerned about using DSLs to complete frameworks, currently Oslo is more focused on model execution to achieve that, whereas we're more focused on transformation of and generation from models to achieve it.
So, on to our VS 2010 feature set. Here's what you can expect in the next public release (from Stuart's announcement):
I've spent most of my time so far in three of those areas, so I'll dive in to those along with Stuart and Jean-Marc over the next few months.
it's pretty exciting to suddenly have such a lot to talk about!
