I've been often asked why I prefer "Managed" languages (C#, Java, etc.) over "Unmanaged" language like C/C++. The answer is not that I can't hack it in C/C++ (I was an expert in C++ and used it for many years), but that "Managed" languages perform better for the problem I'm typically working on, and will really outperform as core count increases.
Of course no single language (managed or unmanaged) is suitable for all cases. In this presentation, I'll outline both the technical and non-technical reasons you should consider moving away from unmanaged languages to a managed ones so you can determine if it is worth further investigating for your specific case.
The usual Round-the-Room and Networking will also happen after the presentation.
Note: RSVP does not hold a seat; it is first come, first served, limit of 50 (by fire code).
