I just posted a new Channel 9 interview. This time it’s with Tyler Whitney, a developer on the Visual Basic compiler team. Here he demonstrates how line termination has changed in the Visual Basic 10 compiler making underscores unnecessary as line continuation indicators. This makes your code more readable especially when writing multi-line LINQ queries.
Yes it’s true, many underscores are unemployed so the team has created a support group for them at www.unemployedunderscores.com
