I'll be speaking at IVCUG this month: New stuff in .NET and C# 2.0 + Deep LINQ Preview

I'll be presenting at this month's upcoming C++/C# user's group meeting about new stuff in .NET 2.0 and a deep introduction to the LINQ project. The LINQ presentation will be different  than the one I did at the Architects user group in that I won't discuss data design patterns associated with DLINQ, but instead delve into the C# 3.0 and 2.0 features that make LINQ work under the hood, including extension methods, lambdas and more fun things!

Date:    Wednesday, November 16, 17:00 - 20:00

Place:   Microsoft Israel 

            Hapnina 2  (Amdocs Building)

            Ground Floor

Parking is available at the Kurkar parking lot. Proceed straight past the traffic circle and the parking lot will be on your right.


Part I: Cool new stuff in .NET 2.0 and C# 2.0

Part II: A preview of the LINQ project: An extensible Language Integrated Query infrastructure in .NET 3.0

Celebrating the release of Visual Studio 2005 and the .NET Framework 2, this month’s meeting will consist of two parts:

Part I: Cool new stuff in .NET 2.0  and C# 2.0

We'll take a look at some of the newest additions to the C# languages including anonymous methods, generics (part of the framework), iterators, partial classes, and more

We'll also take a look at the new enhanced VS 2005 IDE including the Winforms designer, data binding to objects and other nice stuff. Roy will present his top 10 list of favorite new features to look for in the IDE for productivity enhancements.

 Part II: A preview of the LINQ project: An extensible Language Integrated Query infrastructure in .NET 3.0

The LINQ Project is a codename for a set of extensions to the .NET Framework that encompass language-integrated query, set, and transform operations. It extends C# and Visual Basic with native language syntax for queries and provides class libraries to take advantage of these capabilities. Find out about the general-purpose query facilities added to the .NET Framework that apply to all sources of information, including (but not limited to) relational or XML data. We'll also have some very cool demos of this LINQ in action. If time permits, we'll delve in to how LINQ works underneath, including some cool C# 2.0 features such as anonymous types, lambdas, extension methods and more. A geek fest!
