Annual Compiler Lab March 13-16

In just a little over one month (March 13-16) Microsoft will be hosting our annual Compiler Lab.  This year we'll be featuring some new and exciting technologies such as:

  • LinQ (data-as-first-class-citizen integration)
  • Dynamic Languages and Scripting on the CLR
  • An overview of IronPython
  • An overview of our Visual Studio Integration Program (the mechanism for integrating your compiler inside Visual Studio).


The lab will be hosted in our Platform Adoption Center (also known as Building 20).


If you are developing language technology for the CLR and are interested in attending, please use the email link at the top of this page and drop me a line. 


You have to cover your own travel and hotel expenses but there is otherwise no cost to attend.  We even provide a BBQ dinner on Tuesday evening!


The approximate content of the lab (still subject to change) is:

LinQ keynote and deep dive

  1. Michael has also blogged about the event with a  tentative agenda in:

  2. Any chance the sessions (and/or slides) will be available online after the lab?

  3. Most of the content of the lab is delivered under NDA.  Therefore we don’t post it online.  I will contact the CLR team and find out if any of it can be made public once the lab is over.

  4. It’s weird that material delivered in a lab that is both open for public registration and is free is covered by a non-disclosure agreement. It’s not as if you will (A) do this again (B) make a profit from this (C) lose money or anything else for that matter if any of the material is revealed.

    I really would love to tune in, but a few thousand kilometers tell me I can’t. :/

    Would you be so kind as to contact me if this policy changes?

  5. Que tales coincidencias: mientras blogeaba (¿les gusta mi ciber-castellano?) acerca de los lenguajes…
