Just a brief note of today’s highlights:
Mads Torgersen on the future of C#
Listening to Mads Torgersen talk about Roslyn and some of the new additions to the C# syntax was nice – I love the fact that my trusty workhorse is keeping up and is still being improved. I would love it if F#’s discriminated unions and pattern matching would find a way into C# though.
Greg Young on event sourcing
Having been drinking a fair amount of event sourcing Kool-Aid lately :), I simply had to go to Greg Young’s talk about event sourcing. It was cool when our CQRS- and event sourcing framework got a mention from the master himself.
Mads Kristensen on ASP.NET vNext
There was probably other interesting stuff going on as well, but I must admit that my head hurts a little bit from having had one beer too many yesterday evening. But that is quite natural, actually, as going to conferences is ~50%(*) about having beers and talking to inspiring people.
(*) That claim is supported by a pretty decent amount of empirical evidence, which I have personally collected.
