DSL Tools session at TechDays in Belgium#

The annual Belgian tech-fest for Microsoft developers, architects and IT pro's is coming to Ghent again soon, and I'm once again proud to host a session in the Developers track for TechDays!

Domain Specific Development with Visual Studio Domain Specific Language (DSL) Tools

As one of the pillars of the Software Factories initiative, Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) provide a way to describe your business domain in a language closer to the actual problem than using traditional programming code.

The Visual Studio Domain Specific Language Tools allow developers to create their own graphical designers and code generation tools – much like the ones you can find in Visual Studio today, such as the Class Designer.

In this session, you will learn how to develop your own DSLs inside Visual Studio and see an example of a real-world DSL that simplifies your life as a developer: the Configuration Section Designer.

TechDays 2008

Heroes are Assembled { in Software Factories } :-)

Hope to see you there!

Just Released: BuildCop v1.0!#

It is with great pleasure that I'm finally ready to release another open source tool on CodePlex: BuildCop.

BuildCop is a tool that analyzes MSBuild project files (interactively or during e.g. a daily build) according to a customizable set of rules and generates reports - e.g. is strong naming enabled, are certain project properties set correctly, is XML documentation being generated, are assembly references correct, are naming conventions respected, ...

This has grown out of a quick-and-dirty tool to check various build settings in a large customer project (to make sure that the developers were sticking to the guidelines), and has evolved into quite a clean, flexible and customizable tool that you can now start using as well.

All information, downloads and documentation is available on the BuildCop homepage on CodePlex, so rush out and let me know what you think!

This is my personal website, not my boss', not my mother's, and certainly not the pope's. My personal opinions may be irrelevant, inaccurate, boring or even plain wrong, I'm sorry if that makes you feel uncomfortable. But then again, you don't have to read them, I just hope you'll find something interesting here now and then. I'll certainly do my best. But if you don't like it, go read the pope's blog. I'm sure it's fascinating.
