DSLCon was awesome

I attended Sells' DSLCon a few weeks ago - just now blogging about it.

Fowler's keynote was awesome.  Modeling-is-programming is a key message for Oslo/M. It's our differentiation from other kinds of modeling, e.g., UML. His discussion about DSLs and semantic models to represent domains which can then be executed is spot on.

If you really want to understand Oslo and M, check out Fowler's work on DSLs.

Some of the conference was a bit too much powerpointy for me - I would prefer more code. But all-in-all a great event.

Thank you sells! You are the man.
