    By "the future of C#" do you mean C# 4, or beyond? If it’s "beyond" will you be posting your slides online? 🙂

    I will be focused mostly on 2010. I’m actually talking to folks about how much "beyond" we show, but the way the wind is blowing right now, it feels like most of that kind of material will be reserved for PDC or held in check for later. One issue, of course, is that Anders talked abit about what will happen beyond 2010 during last years PDC, so the cat is somewhat out of the bag. But to answer your question again, this talk will be mostly about 2010, which is, after all, our upcoming release. If the status on this changes, I’ll respond to this thread.

    I spoke more with team members, and we have agreed that there are a set of features beyond 2010 that I can discuss. The primary focus will still be VS 2010, but there will be a significant chunk of the talk that will focus on releases beyond that.
