The team

Near the end of ‘07, a couple of developers got stung by the software factory bug and wanted to actively participate in the community. So we joined forces with some of our colleagues from Professional Services at Compuware Belgium to start a focus group about Software Factories. We’ve managed to gather an enthusiastic team of people with GAT/GAX, DDD and DSL tools experience.

I’m particularly interested in how we can make the life of developers like us easier and especially more fun! Read: Less boiler plate code to free up time for the fun part of coding. For the moment I’m keeping my eye on .NET software factories (duh!), Visual Studio extensibility, ALT.NET community, P&P, DDD, TDD, …

I am a dedicated software engineer working at Compuware who loves working with Microsoft Technologies. Currently, my primary focus is C# and ASP.NET, but I have a strong interest in all things .NET. Like many of us, I like improving myself by integrating different methodogies and techniques.

LOVE your blog… I’ve been doing a lot of work with Factories (I did the initial port to 2008 of the CastleContrib ActiveWriter DSL).

Recently I did my own IoC improvement however not really a DSL but a run-time state inference engine, but deterministic. This allows for ‘almost’ elmiminating the concept of ‘IoC Config’ (not completely of course).

While Binsor (from Ayende) and it would appear Unity (I need to check it out after writing this) make great leaps, I hope to semantically break things into:

1) What are the fundamental drivers for resolving (at run-time) the implementation to provide to a requester?

2) Given that set of drivers, what are the data elements we must have access to (and be able to perform intelligent parsing of) to arrive at answers?

3) Given results that are conflicting, or not specific, we allow the configuration of ‘meta configuration’ to guide us in ‘rules to use to solve answers to our ‘run-time’ rules’.


One of the main enablers of this is Linq. I leverage an optimized ‘Linq to Reflection’ system as of course much of the data is Reflection based.

I’m using this with Castle Windsor off their trunk, NHibernate 2.0.0.Alpha1, ActiveRecord, ASP.NET 3.5 & 3.5 Beta 1 (using the prePageHandlerExecute event).


Kind Regards,
Damon Wilder Carr
