If you are a programming language
or component developer going to the PDC you may find this
Next week, in Los Angeles at the
Professional Developers Conference (PDC) , Microsoft will be describing major
changes planned for both Visual Studio and the Windows operating
system. The conference ends on Thursday afternoon with a panel discussion
about programming languages. In conjunction with this, the Common Language
Runtime team will be sponsoring a lunch in the Programming Languages and Tools
Track Lounge from 11:30am to 1:30pm on Thursday, October 30. We've invited
the members of the language panel as well as language and library designers
within Microsoft to join us.
The meeting is primarily social, but
we'll take the opportunity to give a very (very, very) brief presentation on
some of the implications these changes have for programming languages and
libraries. We'll also describe a meeting being planned for mid-February or
early March for detailed technical follow-up in this area.
We'd welcome your participation if
you are attending the PDC. And if you can't make it, we'd like to hear
from you by email -- send a note to PDrayton@microsoft.com.
