In my previous post I asked you to vote for my VB6-to-.NET Migration: Myths, Truths, and Real-World Experiences session at TechEd 2010 Berlin, so today I am very happy (and grateful) to announce that the session has been accepted. I will be speaking on Tuesday 9 November, 1.20 pm, in Hall 3.2 Interactive 6. Here's the session's abstract:
Microsoft official support for VB6 has expired in March 2009 yet there are many billions lines of VB6 code waiting to be converted to VB.NET. Many companies have postponed this step but it’s now time to take a decision. Should they convert their code with the help of a tool or rewrite everything from scratch? What about converting to a language other than VB.NET? In this informal talk we will discuss all the available options and talk about some real-world migrations.
Thanks to all of you who voted my session. If you attend TechEd, I hope to see you there!
