A busy life


It's almost a month since I posted anything - we've been very busy working on the next version of the DSL tools, which will appear quite soon.  Last week I spent a day at the SPA conference which was a nice opportunity to meet up with some old friends and colleagues. Alan and Gareth gave a workshop on Domain Specific Languages; during this there was an interesting discussion about the merits of implementing the DSL directly vs. defining it as a UML Profile, which touched on the generated API, the serialization format, the ease of writing constraints, readability, and the benefits when communicating with customers.  Next week I shall be giving a short talk about Software Factories at the Butler Group Application Development Strategies Symposium and I'm thinking about how to fit such a large story into 30 minutes.
