TechEd 2005 - Day 4

Sessions I followed on Day 4 of TechEd 2005 :
  • Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 : Application Frameworks and Advanced Language Features [Jay Schmelzer]
  • Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 : Productivity and Application Architecture Improvements [Jay Schmelzer]
  • Microsoft Visual C# : Introducing C# 2.0 [Juval Lowy]
  • Keynote : The future of software [David Vaskevitch]
  • .NET Framework : The pitfalls of Exception Handling. Why they hurt and how to avoid them [David Platt]
Stuff to remember :
  • After 3 days of slide-shows it was great to have 2 presentations full of demos in Visual Studio 2005 by Jay Schmelzer.
  • The keynote was all about bringing people and computers together. Good presentation by David Vaskevitch [Chief Technical Officer of Microsoft]. I liked the examples/stories he mentioned during his speech.
  • In the "Ask the Experts"-area [Microsoft Patterns & Practices] I picked up a copy of the Enterprise Library Edition [release of June 2005]. The CD includes webcasts, podcasts, videos and hands-on-labs.
  • The famous TechEd Party did it again : good music, lots of food and drinks, nice decoration of the mega party-hall, ... The performance of NU2 [The Ultimate U2 Tribute Band] was not bad at all.
  • My digital camera [disk] is almost full. Thanks to Steven who took a lot of pictures of himself during the TechEd party. What a geek!
