Introducing Iterators (C# 2.0)
Iterators are some thing pretty cool, they get you to use foreach withouth explicitly implementing IEnumerator/IEnumerable. Some facts about Iterators: (source MSDN) An iterator is a section of code that returns an ordered sequence of values. An iterator can be used as the body of a method, an operator, or a get accessor.

First Go at Generics! (C# 2.0)

Keep the questions for the end !
When I was speaking on "Design Patterns and Application Frameworks" at Dept Of Computer Science,Karachi University, couple of weeks back I learned a big thing. The big thing was "Keep the questions for the end !" I usually try to make sessions more interactive and dont do it the traditional teacher/student way.
