Raise your level of abstraction
Microsoft has recently released the Visual Studio Pattern Automation Toolkit (VSPAT), available for free download from http://vspat.codeplex.com.
This toolkit allows IT experts (all disciplines) to create custom simplified tooling for reapplying patterns and best practices in solution implementation (no matter what technology or domain), that passes on their expertise in implementing custom solutions consistently and rapidly.
IT organizations have started using this toolkit for creating high productivity tools that make use of DSL's that combine reusable assets, automation and guidance to drive standardized tooling that generates and automates the completion of solutions that are natively model-based and highly customizable.
If you believe DSLs have the potential to unlock productivity and consistency issues with IT development and deployment, and wonder what work is going on to make building them easier and within the reach of any IT expert, then please check out VSPAT.
