Visual Studio 2008 IDE And Language Extensions

If you’re going to the Visual Studio 2008, SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 Launch (Heroes Happen Here) on Wednesday (19th March 2008) come along to the 10:45am presentation I will be giving entitled Visual Studio 2008 IDE And Language Enhancements For C#. I must admit that I like descriptive titles that tell you what’s in the talk. I’m not a big fan of the "Figs, Dates And Tall Fishing Tales" kind of titles where you have to read the abstract to find out what subject the talk is about. The downside is that the title means that there’s not much left to say about the presentation because it really is about the IDE enhancements in Visual Studio 2008 and the C# language enhancements for the .NET Framework 3.5. The session is largely a prep session for Mike Taulty’s subsequent session which is solely on LINQ and doesn’t stop to cover any of the language enhancements because I will have already done them. BTW Mike’s session on LINQ has been updated from previous versions of this presentation (which were also excellent) and this new incarnation really is worth seeing.

I’ll also be down at the Ready, Steady, Speak! speaking competition as a judge so if you’re a contestant remember to be extra specially nice to me (brown paper envelopes only please, sterling only, no coins).

As it was a Microsoft event the slides are not mine to distribute. However, most of the slides were there simply to introduce demos. The slides that contained content were taken mainly from my presentation on Extension Methods that you can download from
