    The video pauses every two seconds, making it very hard watch. Is it possible to download it completely before playing?

    Microsoft OSLO and Eclipse EMF are two promising and comparable technical spaces. Would be interesting to bridge them so than OSLO-models and EMF-models may be exchanged. A project to build such a bridge is mentioned in : bit.ly/DImMG

  • Myth of DSL

    Having worked on and built DSL, there's a unspoken myth that anyone can make a DSL. Honestly, my experience tells me language design/implementation is best left to people who understand the theory and practice. Oslo is an interesting concept, but there's a downside.

    To really design and implement a language, the developer needs to understand abstract syntax tree (AST) and how they work. I've met people that designed language using GUI tools and never make that leap. As a result, the language they created were full of flaws and horribly broken.

    my bias 2 bits.

    Hello Jules,

    I double checked the video in both Firefox and IE and it works fine. It might have been your internet connection...

    There have been a few people engaging with EMF +/vs. Oslo. For Microsoft it is interesting too, but still not interesting enough to invest in it.
