PDC05 – Rico Rocks on performance

Attended the lunchtime presentation by Rico Mariani on writing faster managed code.

The cool thing I got out of it is that the CLR team has done most of it for you. A bunch of things including NGEN, iterating over generics and exceptions are just faster. No work needed on your part.

The gist of it is here: http://blogs.msdn.com/ricom/archive/2005/07/27/444136.aspx

    Missing the point that we paid good money to hear rico tell us how to make our apps faster. The talk should have been called ‘What the CLR team did to make your apps faster’. Interesting stuff but not what was advertised. Rico could have read any blog entry and been more on topic. He even joked about it at the beginning "Well I’ve decided to turn this topic on its head" i.e. Thanks for coming but I’m going to talk about something else.
