This is not quite 'VERY VERY VERY' different. It's using lambda functions like Anders does in the same context for the same purpose. No need to define classes. Don't get me wrong what Anders is doing is great. It has graceful syntax too. It's just a great evolution
not an earth shattering revolution.
Could someone say ORM at least once. These ideas weren't generated out of the blue. Yes there are some neat things here but a lot of it resembles very closely what I use Ruby for everyday + some type checking. I find it slightly disturbing how this is presented and everyones comments here. There are interesting comparaisons to be made. There is a technological context.
Are you at liberty to discuss how this has evolved. For example were there considerable portions of managed code that had to be moved over to unmanaged for tweaking purposes ? or unmanaged code that was migrated to managed because it was cleaner to handle
and maintain ?
