What's New in Visual Basic 9, Beth Massi at Bay.Net In San Francisco

Updated: at 11:17 PM

Beth did a great job of presenting new features in Visual Studio 2008 at the Bay.Net Meeting in San Francisco.  Her focus was Visual Basic.  Most of the features she presented will work in both C# and VB.  Lots of LINQ stuff.  What really surprised me was the superior handling of LINQ to XML in VB9.  I always thought C# (my language of choice) was better in all ways than VB but I was sadly surprised.  I may have to learn VB now.

Here are some pictures of both the event, and the after dinner fun with the gang.
