After “refocusing” Oslo (in short, the Microsoft strategy for model-driven development consisting in the M modeling language + the Quadrant modeling environment + a model repository) we were left wondering if Microsoft still believed in model-driven development .
Now Microsoft has announced another step (backards): Microsoft is dropping Quadrant – Another piece of Microsoft’s Oslo modeling puzzle disappears . AS Markus Voelter nicely put IN a tweet: “With Microsoft canceling Quadrant, I will finally stop mentioning Oslo when talking about MDD. A pity”
To me, this IS clearly inconsistent WITH Bill Gates saying that better software modeling IS the solution
