I can't make it to PDC this year due to a project commmittment, but if you are there be sure to drop by and say "hi" to Paul Vick. He is doing a talk on the future of VB this year, and it is sure to be something I should be at ... oh well. Anyway, I guess I'll just have to live with the video. This is the description from microsoftpdc.com
Hear language architect Paul Vick and specification lead Lucian Wischik discuss the future direction of the Visual Basic language. Learn about the new capabilities of the next version of the language, including additional LINQ features, syntax simplifications, and a host of other improvements. Also gain insight into possible future features, including meta-programming and scripting.
If you are at PDC, be sure to check him out, cheer loudly, and report back here with the scoop! Here is the channel 9 link:
I'm sure it will be a great presentation!
