I went Don Box and Kim Cameron talks on Microsoft Project CodeName “M” and ‘M’-Based System.Identity Model.
It has been a year since these tools have been released. There have been great updates even since the May CTP drop this year.
- You can compile “M” files in VS 2010 without mucking with the csrpoj file
- Error reporting is integrated in the IDE
- Enhancements to Intellipad and the M Language for building textual DSLs
- Using M Schema, there is a VS IDE option to target the database.
- And more

PDC talks are available both videos and slides from the links.
If you have been skeptical of our recent renaming of “Oslo”, I encourage you to actually watch the videos, download the bits and then make up your mind.
More importantly, if you are a .NET developer, please take a look at what we are doing around EF and DS – especially the OData protocol.
