Multi-Targeting is about reusability. It is about writing code once which can be reused across different frameworks. This reduces development and maintenance time giving a boost in ROI. This session would start with discussion about various historical multi-targeting options with Microsoft Development technologies. We would see how portable class libraries supports this idea. The main focus would be about efficiently writing portable class libraries using new Visual Studio tooling features.
