September 8th Meeting Information

On September 8th, Jason Bock will join us to share the latest on Microsoft’s new C# and VB.NET compiler, Roslyn. Much more than just a new compiler, Microsoft has created a toolset foundation with a rich set of code analysis and compilation APIs, opening the door to many possibilities. Jason has been studying this for as long as anyone outside of Microsoft and has lots to share. We’re happy to welcome Jason back again and appreciate all his great community contributions!

Topic: Managing the .NET Compiler

With Project Roslyn, Microsoft has finally let .NET developers get access to their long-awaited compiler APIs. The potential impact of having a compiler API available for all developers is immense. In this session, you’ll get a tour of the elements behind this new API, such as syntax trees and parsers, and how you can use them in code analysis and metaprogramming techniques.
