The NDC2010 agenda team has a luxury problem. Having gone through all the submitted talks we were left with more than 200 sessions for this year's conference. We can only fit 114. So it's safe to say we have a difficult task selecting what goes in and out.

This year's call-for-paper has resulted in an absolutely amazing amount of good suggestions. Some are just plainly good but then there are some that really stands out as so hard core they're almost scary. It might be hazardous to expose people to deep dives like this in just a 60 min talk as one's brain could go into a complete meltdown. In a good way, but still. All in all I am so amazed with the quality and the breadth of this year's content that I will now state that this year's NDC will surpass everything you've heard of, seen before or even dreamed of! 

And now it is with pure joy when I tell you that we just got confirmation from world renowned C# master ninja Jon Skeet (Google)! Jon is one of the brightest heads in the C# universe. As some of you might know we already have Mads Torgersen on the roster (from the C# team in Redmond). Mads is going to talk about C#4.0 and after that session Jon takes the stage to present his brilliant session “If I ruled the world – C# 5 according to Jon”. And after that Mads will continue talking about language design followed by a Q&A session.

Rumors say that Jon intends to attend this session and will engage in the discussion. You can too. How will Mads respond to Jon's ideas of a future C#. And what will the audience say to all of this? Maybe this will alter the future of C# altogether?

Rumor update: Will legends Neal Gafter and Eric Lippert show up in this language design session? We think they will. Time will show.

We have lots and lots of other news to share the coming weeks, so stay tuned to our web site.
