Steve Lacey - Tour of the Flight Simulator team

Download

Right click “Save as…”

Flight Simulator is one of Microsoft's coolest products. After all, what's cooler than being able to fly a Boeing 747 around the world?

It might not sound geeky enough for Channel 9, but there's a lot of technology in Flight Simulator.

And, there's a sizeable team of developers and testers who work there. Steve Lacey, Software Architect, on the Flight Simulator team gives us a tour to meet some of the geeks and hear some of the stories behind the development of the world's best-known simulator.

    I saw .. that is really silly, I mean that eBay is the only place they could find one .. wonder how much they ended up paying for it?
  • MinhMinh WOOH!  WOOH!
    Hey, are you guy planning the SpaceShipOne add-on to MS FS? I'd invest in a new video card for that.

    Folks, thanks for the great tour. Well done! FS is one of my favorite MS products.

    But, the tour went a bit further for me... it's yet another reminder of why MS is such a great company. The dedication, drive, vision, and broad diversity of the team's experience and perspective are really inspiring. That's what I've always liked best about MS, and that's the type of team I'd like to work with someday.

    Keep up the great work - I can't wait to see what comes next!!!

    Channel 9 Guy: "That's in Chicago, right?"

    Great example of the ignorance of Coasters about "Fly over land".
  • Great video! Loved the tour!
