Wednesday 25th February 2009 sees the very first meeting of the Gloucestershire .NET User Group run by Jimmy Skowronski. I will be joining Paul Jackson in a double header:-
- Sockets In Silverlight 2 with Paul Jackson
A live coding session building a TCP sockets based Silverlight application, touching on all the aspects required to get the smallest sockets application up and running.
- What's New In C# 4 ? with Guy Smith-Ferrier
At PDC 2008 Microsoft unveiled C# 4 and all of the new features within. So now we start the roller-coaster of catch up all over again as we desperately struggle to keep up with what's new and why we should be interested in the latest flashy feature. In this session we will look at dynamically typed objects, optional and named parameters, type embedding, type equivalence, loose type coupling and more. In addition if we have time we will look at the "compiler as a service" feature to be released after C# 4.
The meeting starts at 6:30pm and runs to 9:00pm and is at The Royal George Hotel
in Birdlip. And, of course, like all good user groups it is free to join and free to attend. Sign up here
