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).

  • MinhMinh WOOH!  WOOH!
    Great great content! I wish I'd seen this video a month ago. I would've definitely try to come to the PDC to see these guys. Can't afford it, but would try the blog/shareware contest for sure.

    Speaking of optimizing for programmers' time, do you think better constructs than threads are on their way to help us with the multi-core processors?
  • It seems that alot of people won't be able to attend PDC, being it for financial or location reasons. For me it's both. I would like to know if there is any chance that we will find PDC videos on the Internet, for those of us unable to attend it. And if so, where should we expect them to be available?

    Thanks,
    Cosmin.

    Keep an eye on Channel 9 (right here!) during the PDC. We will be providing a lot of content from PDC05.

  • I didn't "get" the t-shirt that Erik "The Language Pimper" Meijer was wearing -- a lamp in a red circle with a line across it.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    PS: Why so few posts for this (and other recent) videos? Where is everyone?

    Agreed. I thought these CLR team videos would have invoked more conversation.

    It's the redesigned site, I tell ya! You have seemingly discombobulated everybody... Perplexed
  • << Suggested Windows-Media-Player Error-Message ( not present in version 10.00.00.3646 ) >>
    IF the user tries to drag the scroll-thumb, AND the WMP cannot do this because the index-block evidently missing from the end of the file, due to a truncated download, THEN WMP might, in addition to snapping the scroll-thumb back to the current position as it does, also display an informative message-box "Tail-block missing from file, probably an interrupted download, can't re-position".  Less elegantly, the play-speed-menu might be extended by an additional entry to explain why the speed-entries are grayed out in a brief menu-entry-sized set of words "Speeds not available - file corrupt", and then if you click on that entry, the lengthier explanation is available.

    This issue also motivated the brainstorm of the transcript-pane and that still seems like a cool idea - maybe y'all really COULD do that in a couple of days.

    << Loosely-Coupled Synchronized Transcript Pane ? >>
    Given the unimaginable XML code-base you have in-house, to an outsider it seems it must be a weekend's work ( how many times have I thought that ... ) to fry up a trancript-capture editor that would automatically tack the time in there every few words, using invisible mark-up.  So clicking or double-clicking on a word would reposition the video to that point, and just letting the video run would autoscroll the transcript. 
    Marketing-wise, I am not all that busy, but I'm never going sit through that "RICO PERF" video at normal speed, even though there are probably sub-sections I'd be interested in, via the overview of the trancript-pane.  At the corporate level generally there are obviously people who value their time even more highly than I do - for them, to be able to scroll through a transcript pane and sit through video only at points which interest them - this would add value to their internal corporate presentations too. 
    WMP-SDK or not, obviously internally Microsoft has an interface to get-and-set the video-position(even for hi-res video), so the transcript-pane could simply be a separate process for the initial Channel-9 Beta anyway.
    The transcript being external it could be translated into other languages - in particular the nice tours of the Microsoft Hardware Labs would have a wider audience this way, the video does add value to the words, you want them synchronized.

            Always the big ideas,
             PG
