C# Team forthcoming chats in April and May

C# Community Program Manager Charlie Calvert  posted rough schedule about public chats with C# team

 In the April/May time frame there will be three public chats by the C# Team.

April 23, 2007, 11 AM Pacific Time C# Visual Studio IDE Chat: Talk about C# IntelliSense for LINQ. Discuss what else is planned for Visual Studio Orcas. Plus: Code snippets, enhanced IntelliSense, type colorization, refactoring, improved code navigation, metadata as source, Edit and Continue and all the other great new C# IDE features in Visual Studio 2005. There's a lot to talk about! It's your choice! Join the C# IDE team for a chat completely directed by your questions.

May 7, 2007, 11 AM Pacific Time Compiler and Language Chat: C# Language Chat. Want to know more about anonymous delegates in C# 2.0, or our design rationale for them? Have some questions about our current thinking on C# 3.0 and LINQ? Perhaps you'd like to share your ideas with other C# users or the C# language team. Join the C# team chat for an opportunity to do all that and more!

May 21 2007, 11 AM Pacific Time LINQ to SQL Chat: The LINQ Project is a part of the next version of Visual Studio, code named Orcas. LINQ will provide a set of extensions to the .NET Framework that encompass language-integrated query, set, and transform operations. LINQ to SQL is a component of LINQ which allows access to data stored in relational databases. We’re actively designing and developing this technology - show up and join the LINQ to SQL team to participate in that process or just get a better understanding!
