The "Neues aus L.A." was a nice event. Though I attended PDC myself, Clemens did a good job summarizing the PDC's three pillars Avalon, WinFS, and Indigo. I got to know Daniel Fisher, who shot some pics.
... but I have to switch back to .NET 1.1 because of this
I've already written about 2k lines, but this issue bars me from doing any UI development Additionally, I don't want to wait another year before releasing this project.
However, while porting back, I've noticed how much Whidbey will easen the developer's life:
- Anonymous delegates make your source code much clearer.
- Generics allow you do write more, well, generic code.
.NET 1.1 is so... yesterday.
Update: I'm missing the
System.Windows.Form.WebBrowser control, too.
However, this restrospection is for all those people who couldn't attend this year's PDC. Clemens, Michael Willers, and Jörg Freiberger are going to speak about WinFS, Indigo, Avalon, and ASP.NET 2.0.
Though I attended the PDC myself (including the Blogger BoF), I'll glad to meet both other PDCians and non-PDCians. Of course I'll wear my "I'm blogging this" T-shirt
