The objective of the session was to introduce .NET Framework as a next generation Microsoft platform for building end-to-end applications and why students should learn to program using .NET Framework. Following was the agenda of the session (slide copied):

At the end, we discussed the upcoming .NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010, in particular, how .NET 4 address the multi core systems and a little on Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR). I also demonstrated small samples on using Parallel APIs in .NET 4.0 Beta.

In the end, I would like to thank everyone who attended the session. The slides and demo are available on my Box .net folder available, refer to sidebar on right hand side on my blog in folder “MAJU TechCon”.
