Presentation: "An alternative ALT.NET?"

Track: .NET for experts / Time: Monday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Lille Sal, Musikhuset

Nowadays ALT.NET is closing in at becoming almost as mainstream as the MSDN way. Sure, there is a long way to go, but it’s finally not very chocking any longer. But there are more things to have a look at of course and to try out. Actually loads of things. In this presentation I have collected a couple of my favorite concepts that aren’t too mainstream but that I find very valuable in many situations. We will examine one variant of domain specific storage that has proved valuable in situations of strong operational control, but when the development problem wasn’t relational at all. We will also talk about a few examples of DSLs for tiny specific frameworks and how that can help you out in many rough situations. The third area we will explore is to really put value objects to your usage and to see how they provide a very strong tool in your toolkit. Finally we will have a look at another try for declarative UIs. It’s not the MSDN way, it’s not ALT.NET, but it might still prove valuable in certain situations.
