Sri Lanka .NET Forum – July, 2013

Posted by Joy

We had 2 great sessions lined for the July monthly meeting. First was mine which talked about “What’s new in .NET Framework 4.5“. Second session was about “Introduction to SignalR” by Ruchira Gamage.

I started session explaining the journey of both .NET Framework and Visual Studio. After that I talked about the release pattern and “nugget” involvement. After that I touched following topics giving attendees directions to explore more:

  • Visual Studio Version Interop
  • Core Framework Changes
    • New BCL Classes, Methods
    • Portable Class Libraries (PCL)
    • Target 32-bit or 64-bit
    • Improvements to start up
    • Networking improvements
    • Garbage Collection
    • Reflection redesigned
    • .NET for Windows Store Apps
    • Tools
    • Parallel Programming
    • Web
    • WPF
    • WF
    • WCF

Session was a very high-level discussion about what’s new in .NET Framework 4.5 and more details can be found in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms171868.aspx

Once again, it was very nice to see a room full crowd.
