Visual Basic 9.0 Feature Focus - Introduction

It seems a little weird for a C# MVP to start a series on VB 9.0 Language Enhancements, isn't it? However, I have a strong passion of the CL in CLR and CLS: Common Language. Therefore, I'll focus in this blog series on various language enhancements that ship with VB 9.0 as part of the .NET Framework 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008 release wave. If you're more of a CSharpish guy or girl, check out my C# 3.0 posts. For Belux folks, I'll be giving a talk on Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5, also covering language enhancements quite extensively, in Luxembourg in September (the exact date will be published in the upcoming weeks).

Some features I'll cover in this series are:

  • Implicitly Typed Local Variables
  • Extension Methods
  • Object Initializers
  • Anonymous types
  • Lambda Expressions
  • Expression Trees
  • Partial Methods
  • Nullable Types
  • The If Ternary Operator
  • Friend Assemblies
  • Relaxed delegates
  • Runtime Agility
  • XML support
  • LINQ query syntax

I hope you'll enjoy this rollercoaster ride on the VB 9.0 wagon.
