I’m back in the office after travelling to Switzerland to speak about Software Factories at TechDays.  I had some very interesting conversations there with Ralf Westphal, who showed me his work on adding textual Domain Specific Languages to Visual Studio – he told me he’ll be blogging about this, so watch out for that.

 

Ralf has posted about “The Future of Software Development”.  Software Factories are often positioned as a technical thing, a new kind of methodology or toolset.  But equally and possibly more importantly, as the software industry matures, there will be big changes in how people work and perceive their jobs.
