My good friend Sam Gentile will be presenting one of his best INETA talks (which I had the pleasure in seeing in Vermont) on the CLR at the New Hampshire .Net User's Group meeting on Thursday, March 18. Over the past week, Sam has made his best even better: he is also presenting a section on Rotor code, including demos/code samples using Rotor. And, as he did in Vermont, he is writing all of the code using Textpad as his editor, rather than Visual Studio.Net.
Sam and I have both worked extensively with Rotor, with my compiling and running it on FreeBSD, and he compiling and running it on Mac OS X. We have both said it is one of the best educational tools to learn how .Net works underneath. I still use it nearly everyday when I have a question about System objects, Remoting, Garbage Collection, Fusion, etc. Sam is taking the lead to show developers just how easy it is to dive right into the source.
If you are in the area, be sure to stop by for this very special presentation.
Update 2: As Sam mentioned, the presentation went extremely well. The Rotor content, as well as each CLR demo, was excellent!
