When I first started working on COBOL I was told that COBOL was a business oriented language that even managers could use 😉
It looks like Microsoft are wanting to do something similar in a modern manor using Visual Studio + supper duper templates…
Here is what Computer World UK has to say about “Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch”.
Microsoft turns on Visual Studio LightSwitch
Visual Studio LightSwitch is easy enough for business managers
Microsoft is gearing up to release a version of its Visual Studio integrated developer environment that it promises will be easy enough for even business managers to use.
I understand this is not COBOL but the reasons sound very familiar…
