Mitchel Sellers introduces .NET 4.5 Async, showing how to use it by means of examples.
This is Part 2 of the session. Bill Wagner and Jon Skeet explain the basics of asynchronous operations in C# using the Async keyword. The session is spiced with live demos.

Justin Dearing presents a brief introduction to MongoDB, and focuses on interacting with it in Mono via the official 10gen driver. Techniques for handling business logic in application code, such as LINQ are discussed. This is a very code centric talk.
Bart De Smet presents LINQ’s origins, its current status, and plans for the future which include LINQ to Everything, plus discussions on theorem solving, reactive queries, and query optimization.
Guy Steele, Douglas Crockford, Josh Bloch, Alex Payne, Bruce Tate, and Ted Neward (moderator) hold a discussion on the future of programming. Topics included: the future beyond functional, running JVM/CLR on many cores, what is the future of type checking and type systems, languages for education, comparing DSLs and ubiquitous languages, proving code correctness, functional and parallelism.
Eric Nelson explains what are ORM, EDM, and ESQL, what is the difference between LINQ to SQL and LINQ to Entities, which one is going to be further developed by Microsoft in the future, accompanied by hands on demos showing how to use them.
Sadek Drobi shows how he applied functional programming principles to a real-life project which needed to meet certain performance requirements. He shares the lessons learnt on using mutation, laziness, recursion, functions, monads, list comprehensions and parallelization in an attempt to achieve a functional domain model.
In this presentation filmed during QCon SF 2008, Dan Farino, Chief Systems Architect at MySpace, talked about administering thousands of web servers from a system’s architect viewpoint. He mostly detailed the performance counter monitoring used by MySpace, the system profiler and the system administration site demoing the tools for the audience to see how it works.
In this presentation from the JVM Languages Summit 2008, Mads Torgersen discusses LINQ, declarative programming and metaprogramming in C#, examples of LINQ syntax and usage, lazy evaluation of LINQ queries, extension methods, lambda expressions, LINQ-to-SQL, LINQ expressions and metaprogramming, expression trees, how the .Net Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR) works, PLINQ, and the future of the DLR.
Eric Nelson discusses how developers can use their favorite programming language hosted on a Windows web server. Eric provides an architectural deep dive into the internals of IIS and the .NET Framework 3.5 with a goal of reducing the lines of code in web applications.
In this demo driven presentation, Daniel Moth explores the new features of .NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 to create rich Windows clients. There are many opportunities for creating a rich application that runs client-side capitalizes on server-side investments.
