It's now Tuesday lunchtime here in Montreal. Day one of DevTeach for me is now done, with the user group summit taking all day. Some really good information was learned by all, and then the keynote this morning confirmed another DevTeach in November, but now on the west coast in Vancouver. It will be nice to have 2 such conferences annually, and not just piggyback on the shoulders of an american tour,

But, today's sessions so far...

Introduction to WPF

Interesting discussion about what it can do and what it can't (yet). Covered mostly desktop apps, but some talk of Silverlight (WPF/E). There will be more on Silverlight as the week goes on. But they did show Blend and what it can be capable of and what it and XAML can do. Pretty neat stuff, especially as I move forward with some UI-based projects at work.

Generics

Saw a nice introductory talk about generics that explained the concept, along with some code examples of what is possible and what is not. Showed a non-generic example and then modified it to use generics, and then generalized it even more with constraints, etc.

So, still going on for the day, but the first update done. :)
