C#'s Greatest Mistakes

C# is a lovely language in many ways, but it's not perfect. Mistakes made early in a language or platform's development are often impossible to fix afterwards, so this talk isn't a set of suggestions for the C# team.

Which choices have caused confusion? What could we do differently next time?

Pluggable web applications with ASP.NET MVC

ASP.NET MVC is great for building one off applications to solve specific problems, but not much time is given to how we can use the extensibility model built into the framework to allow our own plug-ins to add/modify functionality or create theming systems for multiple customers.
In this session we'll not only cover the entry points we can use for this, but actually go into detail on the implementation to create our own highly flexible applications.
