In this talk, Mark introduces you to Roslyn, explains things like Workspaces, SyntaxTrees, SyntaxNodes, and symbols, and shows you some of the fun things you can do with it, both in console applications and as Visual Studio extensions. If you also go to a talk on Machine Learning you will probably be able to create an artificial intelligence to write code for you and take the rest of your life off.

Stop Punching Yourself in the Face | Hannes Lowette

We developers have the tendency to punch ourselves in the face. We do so by making choices about the software we build: architecture, frameworks, libraries, cloud providers, etc. If you’ve been around for a while, you have probably felt the pain of at least a few of those choices. And yet, if we apply simple logic, we might know in advance what might work, and what will hurt us. Want to hear more? Come to this session to learn how to make choices responsibly, with the goal of minimizing the chance that you will regret them later on.
