For all those who know about this event and attended – hope they learnt something new and enjoyed it. Those who missed it – hopefully they will be able to make it next time.
Here is a brief agenda of the event: http://innovativesingapore.com/2011/04/net-visual-studio-2010-did-you-know/
While .NET 4 is out since long, many people still using .NET 2.0 and slowly making inroads towards .NET4. There are tons of new things in .NET 4 which as an individual (every job role on an IT floor) you can get benefitted. What I was speaking this time was the first session .NET 4 Demystified. It was a big task to cover all the new features of .NET Framework + C# in 40 mins.. However – I gathered some courage and said Yes to it. I started with .NET Framework General Updates where I shared the New Client Profile, Auto Roll Forward and Multiple In Process CLR versions. Then I moved on to BCL New Types and given demos on BigInteger, Tuple and Complex types. I talked briefly on Co and contra variance for generics and then moved on COM Interoperability improvements. Here I demoed NO PIA for Office Word API.
In the next section, I started talking on DLR and demoed Dynamic and ExpandoObject using Python. Due to time constraints I missed on Parallel Extensions demo but I am sure what I covered was useful.
I am planning to record the session and post it on my blog soon. May be I will try YouTube this time by cutting it in 2-3 15 mins videos. Stay Tuned!!!
