Generics are an extension to the .NET CLR's type system that allows developers to add parameters to their types.

Generics are an extension to the .NET CLR's type system that allows developers to add parameters to their types. This allows you to create generic types where the details are specified when the code is referenced. For instance, a generic Stack could be created and integer, double and string instances of the Stack could be created from the same type definition. This powerful feature, which has some similarities to C++ templates but none of its drawbacks, will be part of the Whidbey .NET Framework 2.0 release. Because Generics are implemented in the CLR, they are accessible from C#, VB and MC++ equally. In this presentation, Sam Gentile, will introduce .NET Generics, covering what they are, how to use them and the new Collection classes in the Whidbey BCL.
