Whirlwind 1 on Generics posted on Channel 9

Stuart Celarier of CheckFree and I explore the new languages features in C# in a series of screencasts on Channel 9. Each is a whirlwind tours of the important language features since C# 1. Stuart describes the feature and why it is useful. But he doesn't get into best practices nor suggested usages. Just the facts about the feature.

Whirlwinds are bite-sized webcasts, each is shorter than 15 minutes. You can start anywhere in the series to learn about the parts you're most interested in.

Part one of the eight-part series has been posted Whirlwind 1: What's new in C# 2 - Generics  

In Part 1 about generics, Stuart describes:

  • What generics are.

  • How generics compare with collections.

  • How the compiler treats generics.

  • How generics increase performance and save memory.

This feature is part of C# 2 in .NET 2.0.
