Microsoft is an awesome place to work on languages!
Lang.Net is a great language conference that Microsoft holds every year. We bring in people from all around the industry that are passionate about languages and then race through a set of topics. All the talks are given 15 or 30 minute slots so that we can get through a ton of information. Check out the agenda for this year (HERE) to get a flavor for the wide range of topics and attendees.
This year I was given 15 minutes to describe PowerShell! I decided to:
- Go fast
- Give an overview of V2
- Drill into the Universal Code Execution Model with a demo
You can see the presentation HERE.
I would highly recommend watching Karl Prosser’s talk on PowerShelll DSLs HERE. Awesome stuff!
You can watch any/all of the talks HERE.
