Ian Carmichael has been working on the CLR team since before Microsoft came up with the .NET branding for our managed platform and the virtual machine that powers it all, the Common Language Runtime. Well, we're getting close to the third major release
of the CLR, CLR 4 (V3 was really a service or minor release, but who's counting?).
Back in the good old days prior to V1, Ian was an engineer and a peer of Chris Brumme, Vance Morrison and other top of the line engineers working through the architecture, design and implementation of the CLR. Now, Ian is the GM of CLR and he's at the helm
plotting out the course for CLR's future. Necessarily, we had to sit down with him to pick his brain about CLR then, now and tomorrow. Tune in. Get a glimpse into the past and future of the CLR from somebody who's been deeply involved with the advent and evolution
of Microsoft's now ubiquitous managed runtime.
