Topic: FlingOS™: Using C# for an operating system

Description: FlingOS is an unusual operating system - we use C#. In this talk I'll explain why we chose C#; how it can be more effective for teaching than traditional approaches and I'll walk you through some of our code, including bits our compiler, debugger and main kernel.
