      the takeaways...

      ·         The model is the application

      ·         I can view/edit/roundtrip the model with different visual editors

      ·         The model is represented in a relational database so you can chain models together (IIS model and the WCF model + its hosting infrastructure model)

      ·         Other tools can navigate these relationships

      ·         A runtime takes the model and runs what it understands of the model.

      ·         A runtime could also take a model and pass pieces of the model to other runtimes

      ·         Templates for application types will emerge … you never start from scratch anymore.

       

      ·         You can create a model with a text editor.

      ·         It’s easier for some people to write code than draw pictures

      ·         So they use the textual modeler.

       

      ·         The model can be cracked open and analysed unlike code assemblies.

      ·         Where are all my applications that do that special sauce thing?

      ·         Ten years later new compliance requirements come out from the federal government. 

      ·         Where are all my applications and places in the model that deal with those areas?

       

      ·         The models will get you 70-80 percent there.

       

      ·         There will still be a requirement for traditional code
