There has been a long time from my last post. We have been finishing a project that has take more than a year to complete.
Today I have spend some time surfing the MSDN and I found a huge number of “IWouldLikeToReadAboutIt” new items. One of those is GAT (Packaging Design and Architecture Guidance for Visual Studio). I have seen this webcast .
In a few words: “it is a SDK to create wizards to allow developers apply patterns easily, to avoid the ton docs needing to read before to start to be productive.”
One of the cool features is the ability to define templates using META languages, and it has remember to me the first days of the project, where a friend of mine created a “Template Oriented Programming (TOP) Framework”. (see cube and autocode)
