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.
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).
