  • Kathleen Dollard


Extracting metadata means reaching into available sources, dragging out the metadata, and stacking it up neatly so other processes can exploit it. Exploiting the metadata you’ve stacked up will be the next big jump in programming. It’ll look like code generation, but that’s just one way to exploit metadata. Metadata is the key that unlocks the door to faster application development.
