TLA 314 - Visual Basic 2008 Tips and Tricks
Abstract: In this session, learn how to turn yourself into a Visual Basic 2008 guru with the new language and IDE features. Tips and tricks covered include how to maximize your IntelliSense experience, leverage Refactoring features, and improve the performance of your query and XML code. We go deep into integrated XML and show you how to navigate XML gotchas and express what you wish in fewer lines of code. With respect to LINQ, we explore best practices, pitfalls to avoid, and answers to most frequently asked questions.
TLA 323 - Best Practices for the VB9.0 and CSharp 3.0 Features that Make LINQ Work
Abstract: VB 9.0 and C# 3.0 introduce a number of new language features such as anonymous types, lambda expressions, extension methods, local type inference and more. These are all features that can help improve your code; however, they also present new opportunities to make mistakes. This talk explains how to use and how not to use the new features of VB and C#. Each feature will be introduced with a small example, and you should be able to follow even if you’re not already familiar with it. Finally, the talk will culminate by showing how all these features come together in the VB and C# compilers to enable the most powerful language feature in the 2008 release: LINQ!
TLA 335 - Conquering XML with Visual Basic 9.0
Abstract: XML is used in most modern applications. Business documents, configuration files, object serialization, SOAP, RSS, and Office Open XML are just a few examples. Even your Visual Studio project files and configuration settings are XML files. However, XML processing currently requires you to learn a new set of concepts, and its text-based format is not easy to deal with programmatically… until now! In Visual Basic 9.0, XML becomes a built-in data type with a rich editing experience that completely eliminates the conceptual barrier between the code that you write and the XML you're trying to manipulate. In this session you’ll learn how to easily create, query and transform XML with Visual Basic’s powerful yet easy to use syntax. We’ll discuss features like XML IntelliSense, XML literals, embedded expressions and using language constructs instead of a DOM to navigate the XML hierarchy. In addition, we’ll explore tips, tricks, and “gotchas”. Say goodbye to XSLT and hello to Visual Basic 9!
