That Conference: Managing the .NET Compiler

This session was presented by Jason Bock

  • Talking about Project Roslyn
  • The compiler (csc or vbc) is simply a black box
  • There are 44 switches you can throw at csc!
  • Microsoft wants to stop all the re-implementations of the parsers, thus what Roslyn is meant to be
  • CTP == Could Trash PC
  • Only support for C# & VB initially
  • Can be used for things similar to StyleCop like enforcing consistency.
  • Can be used for a deep understanding of Code
    • Like a WCF Operation Contract that is one way, but is returning a value
    • Can provide quick fixes based on the analysis
  • No time schedule for release
