Ted Neward (the Dude) sits down with me to discuss programming languages and related topics. Ted is a software architect and consultant that spends a great deal of his time working in the area of Java-.NET interop (multi-platform communication). He's got a great perspective on theory versus practice and the importance of languages and software platforms that meet the needs of both academics and professional developers.

Ted also shares his insights on the history of languages and platforms.

Very interesting conversation for sure! Ted's a great guy with lots of experience in the industry as a practioner.

Enjoy!

  • I didn't understand anything except for the bit about the Eskimos. But apparently most Eskimo languages have no more words for snow than English its just that they join two words together to make a single word like coldsnow or wetsnow. So put like that they could make infinite words for snow.

    Hey, it's the same in German, so we are like Eskimos...Wink
  • Really good video. Didn't agree with everything he said but good watch, and for the record, not all CS graduates want to forget about their compiler classes as soon as they leave college, it is the most interesting module I have taken to date.

  • Great video.  Looking forward more than ever now to Ted's F# session in Toronto next month!

    This one was real, right Charles?
  • Interesting topic! Academics don't get as much credit as they deserve, even though they deal with the toughest layer in computing.

    Ted's presenting topics with regarding to today’s computing language is openness of declaration and behavior.

    On the one hand ideas of Windows platform development has any .NET languages which accommodate forms, communication and business rules. On the other hand advancing behavior of .NET languages may alter language expressions.
    As Microsoft Developer Network delivers blueprints to build set of development practices, Architects should probe truly categorized computing topics, which mean to avoid kind of “development practice for development practices”.

  • Very Nice talk....
    This was the most interesting conversion...for me...
    channel 9 just rocks....
