Running with Code Like scissors, only more dangerous

Next Tuesday, Feb. 12th at 5:30pm, I'm presenting at the Arizona .NET Users Group at the Microsoft campus in downtown Phoenix.  The presentation is going to be a deep exploration of the new features of C# 3.0 - including LINQ, lambda expressions, extension methods, simple properties, partial methods, anonymous/implicit types, and object and collection initialzers.  It will also cover some of the new .NET Framework 3.5 class libraries, but only insofar as they support the C# 3.0 language features (for instance, LINQ).

Those who have been paying attention might know that I've criticized some of the features (or at least the implementation) of 3.0, specifically, the implementation and non-reuse of lambda expressions, and also noted the design pitfalls you can run into by using extension methods improperly. 

The presentation will look at:

  • How are the new language features implemented in the underlying CLR IL code (allowing for C# 3.0 code to run under the 2.0 CLR)?
  • When are they appropriate to use?
  • When are they inappropriate to use?

Hopefully this will be coming out into a white paper soon as well.

I'd like to thank Scott Cate for affording me the opportunity to present and to for sponsoring the event!

Good morning. My name is Karyn Jesser and I specialize in recruiting and placing Information Technology professionals.

Currently, I have quite a few clients in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Chandler looking for senior-level .Net professionals. The positions are contract, contract-to-hire and direct-hire, with excellent benefits.

What is the best way to ensure I am sending communications to all .Net users in the Valley? I sent a group email via the Yahoo AZ. .Net Users Group, but am not sure that is the best way to reach out to .Net professionals.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Karyn Jesser
