TechDays 11 Basel - The Future of C# and Visual Basic

Sign in to queue

Description

Come see what’s coming in the next version of C# and Visual Basic. The major new feature is “Async”, which makes for much simpler code whenever you’re writing database or internet-connected apps – both in client apps that need responsive UIs, and server apps that need to be responsive. We have recently released a public CTP of this feature. This talk will tell you how to get the most out of the CTP today, and what is its roadmap for the future. As for further features planned after that? Think of this session as your direct connection to the VB and C# language design teams – I’ll tell you what we’re thinking, and you can tell us what you want.

    Just an Observation Lucian, in the Paste As VB demo. the code after the paste

    Function factorial(i As Integer) As Integer
      If i = 0
        Return 1
      Else
        Return i * factorial(i - 1)
      End If
    End Function

    is missing a Then

    Function factorial(i As Integer) As Integer
      If i = 0 Then
        Return 1
      Else
        Return i * factorial(i - 1)
      End If
    End Function
