With this second segment of our CLR Team pre-PDC tour we start out with Rico Mariani where we talk again about .NET performance and how to wring the most out of your .NET code.
Then we head off to meet a group of architects on the .NET team where they hint at the future of languages.
Brad Abrams is seen (this part starts at 11:55). Jim Miller, architect on the team joins Rico and Brad (and later Jason Zander, product unit manager) to talk about what they'll talk about at the PDC. These guys are among the smartest people at Microsoft, so
this will be an interesting panel.
At about 27:30 Joe Duffy, our host, takes us to another group of people where we talk about dynamic languages in another preview of another PDC panel discussion. "Are we all going to switch to Ruby?" That's my question, which gets the discussion rocking and
rolling. You also meet Erik Meijer, architect on SQL Server services (he's the language pimper).
