Useful information. I wish there was some example code for the exception handlers mentioned that conditionally log and check if they have been thrown within the hour. There was enough detail about how and when to throw exceptions that you could almost do a clinic on exceptions alone.
Overall, really good information and interesting to listen to. Practical and relevant advice.
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.
