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.

    The Discussion

    • SImon

      Very nice talk!

      Bob ross is back... (His voice at least)

    • PeterAce

      Really enjoyed this talk, Lucian.

      You gave some nice clear and concise metaphors for Async. Big Smile

      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
