My Day One PDC 2005 Highlights


Great first day with a few surprises!!


My favourites were:-



  1. LINQ – Now this is well cool!!  It’s the “.NET Language Integrated Query” Project, check out Anders Hejlsberg Channel 9 chat and the MSDN article here (esp the LINQ Whitepaper)
  2. AJAX – A package of new Web development technologies that integrates an extensive set of client script libraries with the rich, server-based development platform of ASP.NET 2.0.
  3. Windows Presentation Foundation/Everywhere or WPF/E – this looks interesting it’s essentially a cross platform XAML rendering engine – Windows, Mac and Devices (WinCE at the moment).

Nah, alas missed out on the phone deal:(
