Detailed Schedule

 

Tuesday

 

The Visual C# team will be presenting three talks at PDC, all of which are back to back on Thursday (note to self – make sure we don’t do this next time).

 

Visual C# "Whidbey": IDE Enhancements for the C# Developer

Tuesday 2:00 PM – 3:15 PM

Room: 515AB

 

Visual C# PUM Scott Wiltamuth (PUM = “manager of the whole Visual C# team”) and IDE Program Manager Anson Horton will be showing off many of the new IDE features for the C# programmer, including refactoring and data visualization.

 

Visual C# "Whidbey": Language Enhancements

Tuesday 3:45PM – 5:00 PM

Room: 150/151/152/153

 

Anders Hejlsberg, distinguished engineer and lead architect for the C# compiler, will be presenting on the new C# language enhancements, including generics, iterators, anonymous delegates, and partial classes.

 

Discuss the two C# talks, or other topics

Tuesday 5:00 PM - ?

Room: Tools and Developers Lounge (Level 2 near room 309)

 

After Anders finishes his talk, the team will be available in the Tools and Developers Lounge (which I’m told is out in the middle of one of the concourses) to answer questions about C# or about either of the C# talks. Scott, Anson, and Anders will be available, as will other C# team members.

Visual C# Debugger Program Manager Habib Heydarian will show off the new features of the Whidbey debugger.

Room: Expo Hall? (I think - don’t quote me on that one)

 

The C# team will be out in force for Ask the Experts, as will the rest of the Microsoft teams. If you have a hard problem to solve or a tough question to get answered, this is a great place to spend some time.
