Very good presentation with interesting example code and good discussions points for best case and worst case scenarios.
Fast paced. Provides the concepts behind how to use it and some examples of it's power, and where to go to find more help.
Excellent fast paced presentation about the Express version. If you don't manage your IIS server, this is all you need. Great news for devloping web apps. If you do manage the IIS public server, you might consider watching the full IIS presentations first as that may answer more of your questions.
Starts slow and is somewhat quiet. Most of the time is spent in code examples, presented in a very clear way. He shows a program written in .Net 1.1 and over the hour revises the code using new features of .Net 2, 3, 4, and 4.5. The final code is much more concise, and since he explained what each new feature improved upon or replaced, it was easier to understand what the new features did behind the scenes.
While most of the code is explained in C#, he shows all the same features in VB, explaining where the feature differs from the C# version.
- Partial Classes
- anonymous delegate methods
- generics (briefly)
- the yield keyword
- implicitly typed variables (the var keyword)
- Object collections (ICollection)
- Lambdas (including the difference between statement and expression lambdas)
- Extension methods
- Linq to objects
- Task Parallel Library
- Async / Await keywords
I found it to be a helpful demonstration.

Good stuff. Can't wait to hear more from you about MVC 4. I'm really enjoying my MVC 3 projects!
Enjoyed the talk. I'd love to see more from these presenters together.
There is a problem with the MP4 on this course. Looks like a 404.
