"Oslo" is the code name for a family of new technologies that enable data-driven model based development. First we will explore the nature of model driven development and then apply the concept of model driven development to Oslo. Learn about the three major components of Oslo: the new “M” language, the “Quadrant” data visualization tool, and the Oslo repository. An M tutorial will show you how to capture all aspects of an application schematized in the Oslo repository and use Oslo directly to drive the execution of deployed applications. In addition to learning how to use M to model an application, we will use M to build and interact with domain specific languages (DSLs). See how Oslo interacts with Visual Studio and .NET. We will finish up with a discussion on where Oslo is going and how and when you can adopt it. (Note, there will be enough time for an enjoyable Q&A.)
