It's been a long time since I've posted : we've been very busy working hard on the next version of Visual Basic (the next version of Visual Studio will officially be called Visual Studio 2010). I'm really excited about the work we've done, and can't wait to share it with you.

But for some immediate news : on Nov 8th and 9th, I will be doing two talks at the Silicon Valley Code Camp - if you are around, check it out! Drop by and say hi - it's free, and I hear there's free food! I will be doing two talks there:

  • The first talk is on "LINQ fundamentals" which will be based on some of the content that I've posted here before. To sum it up, I'll show you exactly what happens when you use a LINQ expression in your code. I'll be doing my samples in VB, but the content is applicable to any one who uses LINQ.
  • The second talk will be "Introducing F#" where I will show off the new F# programming language (we released a CTP recently). If you haven't tried it, try it out!

As usual, you can expect my talks to be heavily demo based, and I love taking questions and discussing things on the spot, so expect an interactive, fun time.

If you're in the area and want to drop by and say hi, come on down! It should be a blast, and I'll definitely be around during the entire conference just chatting, learning, talking, and having a good time.
