.NET 2.0: open types, anonymous methods, iterators, and asynch primitives

Now that .NET 2.0 is out of beta, we can use the new features in production code. Jon Shemitz will survey 2.0 features and talk about how they can be used in real programs. Open types can make code both smaller and faster. Anonymous methods make your code smaller and clearer. Iterators make it much easier to enumerate nested data structures. If there's enough time, Jon will also talk a bit about the existing .NET asynch features - particularly the system thread pool, and asynch invocation of delegates.

eBig MS SIG will meet at

Hewlett Packard
4430 Willow Road
Suite 100
Pleasanton, CA 94568
6:30 PM - Thursday, February 16, 2006

Jon Shemitz is a independent developer and author, based in Santa Cruz. Jon has done .NET development since 2002, and is the author of .NET 2.0 for Delphi Programmers, from Apress this June.
