MSDN Webcast: Creating Custom Cultures in the .NET Framework 2.0

I am delighted to announce that I will be presenting a second webcast for MSDN on the subject of Creating Custom Cultures in the .NET Framework 2.0. Custom Cultures are a great addition to the .NET Framework and this session explains how to create them and, more importantly, how useful they can be.

Date: Tuesday 11th July 2006
(The World Cup ends on 9th July.)

Time: 5:00pm GMT (9:00am Pacific Time)

Duration: 1 hour

Description: In the Microsoft .NET Framework, the CultureInfo class (a "culture") identifies globalization information such as language, time of day, numerical formats, and calendars. The .NET Framework includes a library of cultures, but you may need a custom culture. This webcast describes how to create custom cultures and use them in .NET Framework 2.0 applications. We demonstrate the essential steps of using the CultureAndRegionInfoBuilder class including a look at its properties and methods, and follow with an example of using CultureTypes.UserCustomCultures. See how to modify existing cultural information or to create completely new cultures, and how to export cultures for one version of Windows to another.

Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of the .NET Framework 1.1 or 2.0.
