More than any other .NET language, Visual Basic is evolving in dramatic ways to provide its legions of developers with untold levels of productivity for developing enterprise data-aware applications. The next version of VB evolves from the influences of dynamic languages such as Ruby and from the field of existing VB6 developers struggling to migrate their applications to .NET.

During this session we will walk through the new language improvements coming with Visual Basic 9 and Visual Studio "Orcas" and Visual Basic 10, including Silverlight and the Dynamic Language Runtime.

Registration is required to attend this event. Please visit the event's homepage to register.
