New York .NET Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

  • Oct 19, 2010 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The topic of October’s meetup will be Languages. We’ll start by demonstrating some useful features of the main languages in Visual Studio 2010, and maybe a few bits you haven’t seen before. Then we’ll open up the group for a discussion to share our thoughts on the topic:


  • With the release of Visual Studio 2010, Microsoft introduced the functional language F# as a top-tier language. Do you think functional languages have a place in mainstream day application development?

  • Do you feel it’s important for an application to be built in single language, or is it suitable to mix multiple languages?

  • Are there languages on other platforms that you’d like to see more of on .NET? Jealous of Ruby’s meta-programming? Felt you were more productive in COBOL? It’s not proper OO unless it’s Smalltalk?

  • What would you like to see in the next version of C#?

Please bring your own thoughts and experiences to share. If there are any examples you think are particularly cool, please bring a laptop and share them with the group.

    Was only able to catch the last two presentations, but they were well worth it. Snugs, as usual has some interesting perspectives.

    I really enjoyed the multiple speaker session. There was a lot of room for discussion. The topics were breif enough to spark interest but long enough to learn something new.
