The Most Important File Format

A session at .NET Fringe Conference

Monday 13th April, 2015

10:40am to 11:10am (PST)

If there's a fringe practice with .NET, it's opening the hood of the .NET binaries, aka assemblies, and tinkering directly with the metadata and the IL bytecode.

Interested in compilers? Profilers? IDEs? Virtual Machines? Developer tools in general? On .NET, all of those share a common form of data: assemblies. What better way is there to learn more about the platform than by manipulating its data? While it’s sometimes viewed as some form of black magic, it’s really no rocket science.

This session will be the opportunity for .NET developers to learn how to analyze and manipulate the very data they consume and produce every day, and how to pick the right tool for the job.
