Pushing C# to the limit
YOW! Hong Kong 2017
C# is a language of breadth. At one end it allows low-level programming with pointers and lock-free synchronization; at the other end, it sports high-level features such as closures, expressions trees and asynchronous functions.
Which leads us to a challenge: can we write a non-contrived program that uses all of the above? The answer is “of course!”, and I’m going to walk you through a practical example: a high-speed communications library built on shared memory (and used in production!)
Come and join the author of C# 7 in a Nutshell and LINQPad in an advanced session, where we step outside the box and play with all of C#’s best toys at once.
Joe Albahari is an O’Reilly author and the inventor of LINQPad. He’s written seven books on C# and LINQ, including “C# 7.0 in a Nutshell”. He speaks regularly at conferences and user groups, and has been a C# MVP for ten years running.
