I was very pleased to be able to give my C# 4.0 talk at the Central Ohio .NET Developers Group last month. Carey Payette accepted my offer to give the talk – based on the last section of my upcoming C# All In One book from Wiley – and I did my best to polish the talk to get it to the level expected by the fine people of CONDG. Hope I met everyone’s expectations! The reviews were very nice.
I utterly failed to get any pictures, although @leshka posted this one to TwitPic. I did get some video, which I’ll put on my SpeakerSite after I get it rendered
It was a great turnout – 103 people I think. Wonderful questions too, and some great feedback from many attendees. Bill Melvin posted a review on his blog, which I appreciate. Twitter was rockin with comments from attendees, too. I agree – the fact that the wholesale changes to the language are more or less just for COM compatibility is somewhat disappointing, but the dynamic language features still excite me. Also, Tim, I agree that just because the dynamic keyword exists means we should use it.
I ran without slides, but I did use a big Visual Studio solution. That compressed folder of samples is here, warts and all. Feel free to dig in and see what a warped brain is really like. The snippets don’t travel well, but the sample code is all in the Examples file.
Anyway, great time, everyone, hope to do it again after I finish the research for the Oslo book.
