LangDotNet2009 The 2009 Lang.NET Symposium was held last week in Redmond, WA and is a chance to hear about the latest in languages, IDE's, compilers, and more.  Here’s part of the description from the site:

Lang.NET is a forum for discussion of programming languages, managed execution environments, compilers, multi-language libraries, and integrated development environments. It provides an excellent opportunity for programming language implementers and researchers from both industry and academia to meet and share their knowledge, experience, and suggestions for future research and development in the area of programming languages.

So, why do I mention this?  Because the session recordings are free (and don’t even need a login).

Head over to the recordings or to the speaker/sessions page and check out talks on:

  • CLR 4
  • Code ContractsDLR
  • Co- and Contra-variance
  • F#
  • Visual Studio 2010
  • Pex
  • Second Life
  • Irony
  • Eiffel
  • IronPython
  • PowerShell
  • Axum
  • Reactive Framework
  • and others

The recordings from 2008 are available as well (and still very relevant).
