In July of 2000 Microsoft introduced the .NET framework, the most
important development since the introduction of Windows in 1991. The
result of a $2 billion investment, .NET is a revolutionary multi-
language platform integrating all aspects of application development
and closely integrating the Web at every step.

This information-packed one-day course covers the essentials of .NET,
including both the "big picture" and a review of all major aspects of
the technology. Presented by Dr. Bertrand Meyer, one of the pioneers of
modern software technology, it is based on more than one year's advance
exposure to .NET prior to the technology's official release. Dr.
Meyer's team at Interactive Software Engineering and Monash University
worked with Microsoft to integrate ISE's technology with .NET,
culminating in a joint appearance with Bill Gates at the Microsoft
Professional Development Conference that first introduced .NET.


1. Overview

* .NET in 15 minutes: an overview of the technology and its

2. The challenges: if .NET is the answer, what are the questions?

* Background: The Internet and the evolution of software development.
  E-commerce and its demands. Requirements of mission-critical
applications. Exposing the business model.
* Object Technology: contribution and challenges. O-O languages, GUI
tools, databases.
* Component-based development: COM, CORBA, Enterprise Java Beans. The
  notion of Interface Description Language. Contributions and
limitations of pre-.NET component approaches.
* Programming for the Web and e-commerce: CGI scripts, Active Server
Pages, Java Server pages. Advantages and drawbacks.
* The state of multi-language interoperability. Approaches to portable
  application development. Graphics, database issues.

3 .NET: The Vision and the Platform

* The .NET architecture: runtime, framework, platform, web services.
* The .NET runtime: architecture and goals. Comparison with the Java
  Virtual Machine.
* MSIL: the intermediate language. Security issues and the concept of
  verifiability. How critical is it to produce verifiable code?
* Organizing and extending your components: assemblies and metadata. An
  application: equipping components with contracts.

4. The .NET object model and type system

* Classes, methods, fields, properties and events
* .NET types: reference and value types, array types, arrays
* Inheritance concepts: multiple interface inheritance, novariance
* Encapsulating behavior: delegates
* C#: a language for programming .NET
* C# versus Java
* .NET mechanisms and the dominant languages: commonalities
  and mismatches. How easy is it to map an existing language
  into the .NET model?

5. Language interoperability

* Available languages and degree of interoperability. Cross-language
  inheritance; cross-language debugging
* The Common Language System: both a consumer and an extender be
  Levels of compliance
* Advantages and challenges of CLS compliance
* Examples: combining components from various languages
* From a common runtime to a common development environment:
  Visual Studio.NET and the concept of multi-language, pluggable
  environment. GUI, browsing, debugging

6. Frameworks and applications

* Web and Win Forms
* Remoting and threading capabilities
* ASP+: Active Server Pages +. Building advanced Web sites for e-
* Web services, SOAP and Building Block Services
* Database access and manipulation: ADO+

7. Summary and perspective

* .NET and the competition
* The significance of .NET
* Future developments
* Corporate strategies: getting ready for .NET


The material distributed to participants includes more than 150 slides,
as well as supporting articles.


This course presents a compact, in-depth survey of the .NET
technology over one day. It is intended for both managers
(VPs of technology, CTOs, project leaders, Web content
managers, e-commerce strategy leaders) and for software
developers who want to know about the most important technology
offering in many years. The .NET technology will affect everyone;
no one can afford to miss it.


Dr. Bertrand Meyer has played a major role in developing modern software
technology and bringing it to software engineers working in production
environments. Bertrand is best known for his best-seller "Object-
Oriented Software Construction" (2nd edition, Prentice Hall, 1997),
recipient of the Jolt Award and one of the seminal works on modern
software technology. He is the author of 8 other books on software
technology, programming languages and object-oriented development,
including "Reusable Software", "Eiffel: The Language" and "Object
Success", and of numerous widely cited articles. He is a columnist for
Software Development magazine, the Journal of Object-Oriented
Programming and was Department Editor for IEEE Computer. He is the
series chair for the international TOOLS conferences (USA, Europe,
Pacific), devoted to component and object technology.
He is also the editor of the Prentice Hall Object and Component
Technology Series.
As head of ISE's development team, he has led the design of tools and
environments used routinely by major corporations worldwide for their
mission-critical applications.
