Another day, another quandry January 12, 2008Posted by wesaday in Programming, Technology.
The application that I mean to write is admittedly, very ambitious. Especially when you only can do something in the program piecemeal. An hour or two in the evenings can’t move things along very fast. Even on the best of days when I want to do more programming after work.
The requirements cover a broadrange of techniques.
I would like to have the ability to define the GUI outside of the IDE. Along the lines of XAML or Marc Clifton’s MyXAML initiative http://www.myxaml.com.
A scripting environment would be a plus also
A plug-in architecture would be beneficial too.
Visual Studio 2008 has built in unit testing, so that will be the target IDE
The main problem with my plan is that MyXAML is open source and there is a possibility that my application will turn into a commercial product, if and when it’s ever done.
