Introduction to unsafe C#: Calling native code and crashing in entirely new ways

Does your C# code have enough access violations? How about mutating supposedly immutable strings? No? What about buffer overflows or heap corruptions? Learn how to do all of this in pure C#, no C or C++ required! In this talk, we’ll be looking at pointers, unions, unmanaged memory, implementing IDisposable and finalizers, and how to call and be called by native code.

Let's get Func⟨Y⟩: Adding functional programming to your OOP codebase

All functions are equal. But some functions are more equal than others! They could be higher-order functions or (im)pure. Some might be closures. In this talk you'll learn what all of these terms mean, how they relate to functional programming, and how functional programming lets you solve certain problems more elegantly and succinctly than object-oriented programming, using (simplified) real-world examples in C#.
