With the public release of 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 engines, and how you can use them in code analysis and metaprogramming techniques.
You will learn:
- Get a thorough walkthrough of the Roslyn APIs
- See how using these new compiler APIs can open up new opportunities for developers to improve their code
- How compilers work at a basic level and what Roslyn brings to table to make that usage easier
