  • Blog Post: Tech Days in London

    Writing this as I come back from speaking at Tech Days in London, in a series of deep dive sessions following the launch of VS2010. The venue was a cinema in Fulham Broadway.

    As mentioned in this post , the UML designers in VS2010 Ultimate now come with a set of APIs that makes them easy to extend.

    I see that Jean-Marc has just posted another sample on the DSL Tools Code Gallery landing page , this time about the new IMS Locks capability.

    Jean-Marc has just posted a ModelBus Adapters project template on the Visual Studio Gallery .

This compliments the sample recently posted, as described...
  • Blog Post: DSL Tools VS2010 Beta1: ModelBus Sample

    One of the most common asks from customers of the DSL Tools has been support for integrating models and designers, that is the ability to have models of the same or different DSL cross-reference one another, and the ability to write simple code that exploits these cross-references to implement interesting...

  • Blog Post: Migrating DSLs to VS2010 Beta1

    When we released DSL Tools for VS2008, the migration story from VS2005 was not great: basically we provided a sheet of manual instructions which led to a fragile and long-winded experience. This time we’ve done a lot better. In the VS2010 DSL SDK Beta1 you’ll find a migration tool that converts your...
  • Blog Post: DSL Tools for Visual Studio 2010

    It seems that my blog entries and those of some of my colleagues ( Steve , Jean-Marc , Gareth ) are like London buses: you wait for ages and then three come at once.
