Radarc 3.0 Released!

The arrival to my new job in Sevilla has coincided with the preparations and launch of a new product. We at Icinetic, are releasing Radarc 3.0. Radarc is a very easy to use code generator highly integrated with Visual Studio and targeting .NET technologies.

Radarc has the ability produce multiple architectures using the same base models and keeping in-sync generated artifacts when model element changes. Architectures and DSLs for defining the models are packaged in so called “Formulas”.

Currently, the following formulas are available for download and it is free for non-commercial usage:

  • ASP.NET Web Forms + Entity Framework
  • ASP.NET MVC 3.0 + Entity Framework
  • ASP.NET MVC 3.0 + Entity Framework + Azure Storage & deployment
  • Windows Phone 7
Radarc creates a complete prototyping application in seconds following the cycle: change the model, touch no line of code, build and run. Prototyping an application is a question of minutes, and obtain a first scaffolding of your application. Moreover, custom code can be inserted in specially designed locations that will be preserved in every regeneration lap.

Radarc 3.0 is available with three licensing models and its free for non-commercial usage.

Other technologies are available on demand, such as:

  • .NET 4.0 Domain Driven Design N-Layered Architecture
  • NHibernate & more to come…
Some cases of usage:
  • If you work in a .NET development shop, feel free to give it a try and give us some feedback.
  • On the other hand, if you want to start learning one of the previous technologies or architectures, you can use also Radarc to generate a reference sample application and start exploring the code.
  • If you are a experienced software architect and needs to evaluate SW architectures to benchmark them before choosing a winner arch for your project, think about the cheap possibility of generate the same application in two technologies and test how well performs for your specfic problem.
These days, I am learning a lot about the state of art here at Icinetic and I hope to start contributing to the bits very, very soon.
Bonus extra: a 20 minutes demo video (in Spanish) generating three architectures is available.
Next week we will be attending Code Generation 2012. If you are interested, join us and see a live demo or download it and give it a try!

Times fly! Code Generation 2012 is only two weeks ahead.

During the latest’s weeks we have been very busy combining day to day work with the preparation of material for the conference.

This year the conference will be held from 28th till 30th of March, in the habitual place: Murray Edwards College, Cambridge, UK.

The programme this year comes with some interesting sessions. I want to highlight some of them:

From my side, and once established in Seville, I will join the conference with some of my Icinetic colleagues. The activities we will be involved include:

As every year, looking forward to join and meet again with the CG community. See you there, guys!
