Dynamic Language Runtime Talk at PDC


I’m at the Microsoft Professional Developer conference in sunny LA where I’ve given an overview talk on the DLR. This was the first talk I’ve given on the DLR where I was able to really dig into some of the technical details underneath and paint a hopefully coherent picture of how the key features fit together. Prior to my talk, Anders Hejlsberg delivered an amazing talk on the Future of C# which he shows for the first time how we’ve added dynamic typing to that language with a static type called ‘dynamic’ – yes, you read that right. This work is all built on top of the DLR, and I’d strongly recommend it as great viewing prior to my talk.
