Oslo is Microsoft's new Modeling Platform. It is made up of a tool, a language, and a repository. This video introduces you to the M. M is the new language for models inside Oslo. To code in M, you use a new tool called Intellipad.
This video walks through creating a simple model using M. This model is then used to insert data into SQL using the model. M also has the ability to define Domain-Specific Languages (DSL). This allows for total customization to the data import process and a custom syntax for data entry. A simple DSL will be reviewed.

Thanks for the demo! But what are you modeling? I'm missing the big picture here. It looks like a database model, not a BPM model (more like an SQL tool than a BizTalk tool). What are the benefits of "M"?
In this demo, I’m just reviewing M at a high level.
I’m creating a DSL (Domain Specific Language) that could be giving to someone else to enforce domain specific conditions.
For Example, I could write a DSL to take the phrase “Create BizTalk File Send Port to X” and have the be converted into the database and eventually create the Send Port.
Hope this helps.
