What is Oslo?

Douglas Purdy is on his way to PDC, where he will begin unveiling project Oslo. So what is Oslo?

  • A tool that helps people define and interact with models in a rich and visual manner
  • A language that helps people create and use textual domain-specific languages and data models
  • A relational repository that makes models available to both tools and platform components

So what else is new, Oslo is the modeling platform that will allow us expressing DSLs. But wait, here's what I like about Douglas's vision:

Oslo is the first step in my vision “to make everyone a programmer (even if they don’t know it)”.

And this can very well be the first step toward The future of my profession.
