Description - Code Generation in Microsoft .NET by Kathleen Dollard
Code generation has the potential to revolutionize application development. Rather than handcrafting each piece of code, enterprises will increasingly turn to code generation, based on templates and application of business logic, to automatically generate code to perform a variety of tasks. Code Generation in Microsoft . NET presents the fundamentals of code generation. Code generation is already used extensively in Visual Studio . NET - every form-based application contains potentially hundreds of lines of "wizard" created code, which is modified as the developer sets various properties. Strongly typed datasets, XML schemas and web service proxies are also generated automatically by Visual Studio. This results in a huge cost savings and improvement in software reliability. Developers need both the technical details of how to accomplish code generation in . NET as well as a coherent series of steps to follow to incorporate code generation into their development. Code Generation in Microsoft . NET teaches developers how to adopt these techniques in their own development efforts.
To accomplish this, this book introduces a series of five steps that leverage code generation both within and between projects in the organization. The mechanics of code generation introduced in the book are organized around these steps, and provide the tools to leverage code generation for significant payback on the very first application where it is used.

Author Biography - Kathleen Dollard
Kathleen Dollard has been involved in the computer industry for a long time. She started (she claims) by experimenting with programming in junior high. After graduate work, she worked with the computer group at Texaco Research writing Fortran and helped usher in the age of PCs doing Lotus 1-2-3 macros. After working with 4GLs and Clipper, Dollard became an independent consultant, ultimately moving to Visual Basic when it became clear that Computer Associates would not release the Windows version of Clipper. Dollard is well known for her participation over the last 15 years with online communities, including BBSs, Compuserve, Fawcette, DevX, and Microsoft public newsgroups. She has been recognized in some form for her online work since 1994, and she's been a Microsoft "Most Valuable Professional" since 1998. Dollard is also active in the real-world communities of user groups, most recently with the Denver Visual Studio User Group and the Northern Colorado .NET SIG startup. A well-known writer and speaker, she is currently doing pioneering work in code generation using .NET and XSLT.
