Microsoft D

Definition - What does Microsoft D mean?

Microsoft D is a declarative programming language developed by Microsoft. It is expected to serve as a textual modeling language for manipulating digital assets. It is used in conjunction with the Oslo repository to model and craft complex service-enabled applications. According to Microsoft, D is a general purpose modeling language with tools and a repository to bridge all models within an application.

Microsoft D would enable people, with no programming skills, to generate the skeleton of an application from a sketch.

Techopedia explains Microsoft D

D is Microsoft’s push toward more intuitive software modeling. It is the key component in the Oslo software-oriented architecture (SOA). The goal of D is to deliver a top modeling platform that creates a merging of the relationship between the information technology and business sectors.

D is a declarative language created for non-developers and is based on XAML (eXtensible Application Markup Language). Models resemble the application itself rather than describing it.
