Yes, you read that right. Edmug is going to have two shorter presentations on the 28th of June. Top Opgenorth is going to present an introduction to embedded databases and db4o. I’m also going to be presenting on this night. My topic will be the new C# Language features in Visual Studio 2008. I’m not going to cover Linq as I think it’s been done to death at the expense of some of the other nice language and IDE features that are coming down the pipe. I’m only going to have one hour so the talk won’t cover a tonne of topics, but for the ones I do cover we will get quite deep into how they work, any interesting compilations they create and how these may be useful to you in your daily development. Some of the topics I’m looking at covering are:
- Anonymous Constructors
- The ‘var’ type
- Extension methods
If there are any others (not including Linq) that you’d like to see presented on, leave me a comment and I’ll do what I can to fit them in.
