Slides (Slovene) from my “compiler as a service” talk at Bleeding Edge 2011

I have to say that I really liked this year’s Bleeding Edge event. It happens rarely that all the pieces fit together: weather was excellent, location was beautiful, I enjoyed my trip (part by train, part by bicycle), attendees were just great and my presentation was a nice interactive (with attendees) one – just as I like. I gave a ton of swag and shown how to enhance your development experience with extending/using CodeRush DXCore, PostSharp or just by using CSharpCompiler.

Hopefully the attendees did like the presentation as well.

Download the few slides below and see you at the next Bleeding Edge!

My “compiler as a service” talk at Bleeding Edge 2011

Microsoft is working on compiler as a service codenamed Roslyn for Visual Studio 11 which is supposed to come sometime next year, I assume towards the end of the 2012. Not much is known and Roslyn might be less feature rich as one might expect. Microsoft announced at Build conference that they’ll release some Roslyn CTP bits in a few weeks time.

The good news is that you can already use compiler as a service today through tools such as CodeRush(commercial)/CodeRush Xpress(free), PostSharp(commerical) and custom coding. Even if some tools are commercial, they provide a tremendous value.

Anyway, after a sabbatical year, I’ll talk again at the Bleeding Edge. In fact I’ll be talking about how to leverage these tools and use compiler as a service for improving both design time coding and your applications in general.

But most importantly, I'll be giving a lot of swag away :-)

See you at Bleeding Edge - do stop by and say hi.

The slides and code from my “Making asp.net mvc applications strong typed” presentation

Yesterday I held a presentation (as the part of Bleeding Edge 2009 conference) on how to make ASP.NET MVC applications strong typed by using CodeSmith and CodeRush (actually by using its free DXCore part). Attendees were great and the presentation went well. Attached are the slides in Slovene and source code in C#.

Thanks everybody for attending the presentation.
