In a couple of hours I'll be heading off down west for the first Galway meeting of INDA. Paul Fallon will be giving a talk on Visual Studio 2005 and C# 2.0in the Harbour Master hotel at 7pm. Paul has promised to make the talk demo-heavy, so you can get a good look at all new features in VS 2005. It should be a great presentation, so, if you are in the neighbourbood - do make sure to come along!
C#2.0 comes with a significant numbers of very powerful additional new features to the language and the Visual Studio 2005 IDE which increase runtime performance and design time productivity. In C# 2.0 there have been significant additions to the language - such as generics, partial types, anonymous methods, nullable types and iterators – all of which increase the performance and productivity of C# code. In conjunction with this, the Visual C# 2005 development environment comes with developer productivity enhancements, such as refactoring tools, expansions and enhanced intellisense. In this talk, Paul will give a “few slides but lots of demos” talk on the new features in C#2.0 and cover both the new language and IDE enhancements.
