As you can see a lot of exciting things has been discussed in 2011 and my vision is that 2012 gets at least as exciting! We’ve still got a lot of fun areas to cover and even more useful products to look at.
Worth mentioning is that I am currently in the work of assembling a book about C# Programming, almost all the above articles and some more will be featured in this book but with a lot of extra content that makes it even more fun to read. If you are interested in being a technical reviewer, editor or anything else that might be helpfull, just drop me an email or a dm.
