    still downloading it, but i think it's a very interesting topic, because its always a good experience to hear the true story of real life design and development process. and, linq and xml literals are cool stuff (from emeijer i think).

    hey, just watched this outstanding presentation, its really a nice talk about the real pricinples, constraints and considerations in the designing of VB/C#, the reasons behind design decisions and the impacts of them, quite informative and deep, with some 'work in progress' designs, possible directions for the future, very cool. I think this should be on the front page.

     

    ideas like xml literals for 'anything' is impressive, and the 'async/await' keywords are evolved since the PDC09 talks, and I never realized that 'async' is heavily related to 'Rx', another cool struff by emeijer, wow.

    Quite agree, that was one of the best talks I've seen in a while.  Even though I don't use VB I'm off to watch his other talk.

    I always wondered 'what could Midori do here ??' when he's talking about constraints of the native operating system, mmm....

    That was an interesting video! I always like to listen to Lucian Wischiks presentations. He is, just as 'exoteric' said, a very skilled presenter.

    Birchoff, you asked about the syntax highlighter in Word. There isn't one! I just select+copy text from VS2010 and paste it into Word2010.
