Event Details

Scottish Developers are pleased to announce that Jon Skeet, author of C# In Depth and "Mr Stack Overflow", will be speaking in Edinburgh during the afternoon of the 9th of August 2013.

 

Abusing C#

As a purely amateur C# developer, code that I write rarely gets to hurt people. (Well, open source projects aside.) As such, it's fun to stretch the language a bit, find its limits... and then try to sneak past them.

One of my first reactions to a new language feature is "How can I use that for a completely different purpose to the intended one?" The results are rarely pretty, but they're lots of fun. The chances of any of the code you see in this session being even remotely useful to a conscientious developer are very slim.

You may well learn some interesting things about the C# language, but that's a different matter. To put it another way: if you're trying to persuade your boss that it's important to send you for educational reasons, you probably don't want to show him this abstract.

 

Speaker Bio

Jon Skeet is a Java developer for Google in London, but he plays with C# (somewhat obsessively) in his free time. He loves writing and talking about C#, and the third edition of "C# in Depth" was published earlier this year. Writing less formally, Jon spends a lot of time on Stack Overflow... where "a lot" is an understatement. Give him a puzzle about how C# behaves which gets him reaching for the language specification, and Jon is a happy bunny. Jon lives in Reading with his wife and three children.
