Luca at PDC 2009 next week


I’ll be in Los Angeles next week for PDC 2009. My session is called “Future Directions for C# and Visual Basic” and it comes on Tuesday immediately after the first keynote.

I’m planning on spending the first half of the session talking about the biggest trends influencing C# and VB. The second part will be about more future looking features we are playing with these days.

My deck has just two slides, as always. It’s all about watching me typing code on stage, hoping that I make crazy errors …

There are several other interesting language related sessions at PDC. Here is a list of them (please notice that the times might change). Also feel free to drop by the languages booth and chat. My team and I will be there most of the time.
