Some Reflections on PDC 2008 – Must Watch Sessions (Day 4)


No keynote today so straight into the breakout action…

TL36 Microsoft .NET Framework: Declarative Programming Using XAML

  • Meant to be a very good session on what you’ll be able to do direct from XAML in the future

PC49 Microsoft .NET Framework: CLR Futures

  • Good session on CLR Futures and a bit about enabling of some current features

PC05 Windows 7: Unlocking the GPU with Direct3D

  • This session was in a foreign language as far as I was concerned but there were some cool 3D models of frogs and things

TL11 An Introduction to Microsoft F#

  • Great session, great presenter.

Now I have nothing to say these sessions are good as I wasn’t there and I have no specific feedback but knowing the people and the subject matter, I’m going to be watching both of them:

PC07 WPF: Extensible BitmapEffects, Pixel Shaders, and WPF Graphics Futures

PC32 ASP.NET AJAX Futures

And because I’m interested in Virtual Earth I’ll also be watching this one:

BB10 Live Services: Deep Dive on Microsoft Virtual Earth

    Mike,

    The session on design by contract and Pex that took place on day 4 was very good:
