This evening, we were very fortunate to have Beth Massi present an online meeting on the topic of VB9. It was very refreshing seeing several of the .Net 3.5 features demonstrated in VB.Net.
Beth began by explaining some of the usual .Net 3.5 features including Object Initializers, Anonymous Types, Type Inference, Extension Methods and Lambda Expressions.
One of the best features in VB9 is the improved support for XML and we saw some great examples of using XML literals and XML properties.
Also demonstrated was the XML to Schema tool – you can find out more about it here:
Beth has also provided many helpful videos which you can find here:
