AGENDA

• 18:00 Talk 1: Interactive C# Development with Roslyn, Filip Wojcieszyn

It’s fair to say that most software developers value very highly the productivity boost that comes with being able to work in a development environment that provides a real-time feedback loop. Historically, C# has been far from that – as typically developers had to rebuild their projects after every change, and the process of finding issues in the code has always felt extremely heavy.

Roslyn compiler and the latest Visual Studio introduced a lot of exciting tools, improvements and APIs that help in this area. In this talk, we will look at various techniques to leverage these interactive capabilities. We’ll look at the REPL and Interactive Window, scripting APIs, live Roslyn analyzers, a much improved Edit-and-Continue support and interactive testing, all of which will hopefully help your development workflow be much more productive.

About the speaker:

Filip is the co-owner of the Scriptcs project, a Microsoft MVP, popular ASP.NET blogger, open source contributor and a member of the ASP.NET Web API advisory group. Specializes in ASP.NET Web Stack and modern Microsoft web technologies.
