Metadata Code Generation with David Catherman

Join me and the Enterprise Developers Guild on Tuesday, June 23, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Code generation is a big part of almost all software development these days as Visual Studio and most tools generate a lot code for us. When working with database applications, the metadata from the database and the repetitive nature of the code lends itself to great productivity gains by generating much of the code. Collecting, storing and manipulating this metadata leads to many more opportunities to generate code at every level of the architecture, including the UI. This presentation will demonstrate how easy it is to build your own code generation system using basic .NET tools. We will discuss several off-the-shelf code generations systems and compare them to building your own.

The meeting presenter is David Catherman.

David Catherman has been participating on the leadership team of the Enterprise Developers Guild for over 12 years and has presented at Guild meetings and code camps many times. He is a consultant for Bank of America and has 20+ years designing and developing database applications with specific concentration on Microsoft .NET and SQL Server. He is currently working as an Application Architect and Senior Developer using Visual Studio 2013 and SQL Server 2012. He has several MCPs in .NET and is pursuing MCSD.

The meeting is sponsored by Signature Consultants.
