Inside and Out... An attempt to understand technology better...

Just finished with the demos of another of my session at TechED 2005 India - Introducing .NET Compact Framework 2.0. There's a ton to talk about the new features of .NET CF 2.0 and in this talk, I would be talking about:

  • Generics, Anonymous Methods
  • COM Interop Support
  • Marshalling Support
  • Enhancements in System.Threading
  • Enhancements in cross-thread control access

One of the better things in this version of .NET CF is a good amount of COM Interop support that has come in - within VS IDE as well. So you could do an Add Reference and reference a COM TLB and be on your way.

COM Interop is quite a bit supported, PInvoke has been enhanced to support embedded arrays, function pointers, MarshalAs support, just to name a few.
