Steve Gates was way too bland, go deep or go home

Brilliant, Erik wasn't kidding about the best content happening backstage in the common areas instead of on stage.
I THINK Andrei said he was about to destroy the functional side, since he had the perspective of implementation detail instead of how to do the mental concept map for a functional implementation for the doubly-linked list; the very essence of the difference between the two paradigms.
I'd love a job at Microsoft or Oracle, Hire me ericagu at gmail.com (I am the actual creator of the Chrome OS concept [Master Plan with Chrome] ) -> http://toxprox.tumblr.com/ for a few examples of My thought process and hopefully decent skill to acquire. I have thought of how to create relativistic paralellization which helped other minds create research papers and I would love to create my automatic parallelization scheme for the JVM.
Might be odd trying to get hired on Channel9 but I may as well try to do what I dream of working on one day; research for the advancement of our modern technology.
Love this conference and it's content! I can't wait to watch the rest of the videos as they are posted!
To get Clang 3.1 compiling 64-Bit binaries go to: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/Toolchains%20targetting%20Win64/Personal%20Builds/rubenvb/4.7.0-2/
Extract both to the same directory to merge them for libraries & runtime dll's. Running clang++.exe seems to work excellent with and without the -std=c++0x command line flag to enable C++11 features like range-based for loops and auto. Lambda's aren't yet supported but the GCC included by downloading and merging both supports all new features noted here: http://gcc.gnu.org/projects/cxx0x.html
Hope this helps some get started quickly with trying Clang.
Simon is without doubt, a damn hero in today's world. The most privileged I would ever become would be to have a job as his pupil or peer in Microsoft Research to help succeed in the important stuff like bringing true computer science back and paving the way for one path to our modern world's programming language Nirvana.
It's always nice to hear from Simon, thanks for the interview Charles.
@Richard.Hein: Thats a damn good paper, I had no idea my idea/term is spreading and is helping to make research progress in ways I hadn't known Thanks for linking that paper, I'd definitely suggest that sort of solution for your hash table not by bias but by such impressive results they got.
Good luck with coding a prototype for your product.
Quite a delightful fellow, he would be a great mentor for many these days. I wonder if he would like my conceptual solution for parallelizing sequential computation.
It uses pipelining in a vectorized form relative to other pipelines in the system, and is a just-above abstraction above instruction level parallelism. There's a diagram for people to enjoy too What do people think?
It's terrible news to hear that F# is being used so little/not at all in Roslyn
C'mon Anders, sure C# is your baby but it sounds like you aren't leveraging F#'s amazing aspects for making a project like this. By just embracing some native F# a little more and merging their IL together would be a beauty. Then aspects of the TRUE next generation of code generators should show themselves via your team's findings.
Who say's you can't create C#'s successor language instead of just dwelling on C# so much?
http://techluminaries.com/2008/12/15/episode-1-brendan-eich/ Is another interview with Brendon which I consider one of his best, he is inspirational in this podcast I linked and if anyone wants a REALLY good listen I highly suggest it with a 10/10 rating. (Sorry Charles it's even better than this ATM and I'd even suggest you have a listen ) Enjoy and I even wished I was hired by Mozilla/Microsoft to do some goodness like what he's done for our modern world.
Here's to hoping strict mode is supported in the final incarnations of WinRT!
