The Future of Programming

I share the same vision about programming with Microsoft. DSM will rule and MDA cannot dominate the market. So, does it imply programming will no longer exist if we define enough DSL? The answer is no.

There aren't "enough" DSL in the future. At least, there will be two camps of DSM tools, Microsoft (Software Factories) and Eclipse (EMF+VEF). For MS, sure it will be only .NET platform. For Eclipse, however, it will be for the whole all platforms. For different languages, UI, and DBMS. There are infinite combinations for us to define.

The future of programming is programming the DSL for user to define it's own application on the system specifications.
