A Whirlwind Tour through the Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF)

From a hotel lobby in the sunny city of Durban, South-Africa, waiting for my plane transfer after a great TechEd Africa event. Why not write a blog post on one of my talks: the Managed Extensibility Framework, or MEF. As we steam ahead to release .NET 4.0, it’s great to see the amount of new APIs that will make it into this release. I had the opportunity to talk on three of those the past few days: * The Dynamic Language Runtime (System.Dynamic) with dynamic support in C# and VB, and dynamic languages like IronPython and IronRuby. * New additions for parallel programming (Task Parallel Library, PLINQ, Coordination Data Structures). * The Managed Extensibility Framework (System.ComponentModel.Composition).
