well, it looks like Joe Duffy is on twitter now https://twitter.com/xjoeduffyx :)
Fun stage of writing a new language/compiler: you finally get to write some libraries in it!— Joe Duffy (@xjoeduffyx) https://twitter.com/xjoeduffyx/status/591986932395036672">2015/4/25
My team's been working w/ Bjarne on this stuff, glad to see it go public; I love "bad committee habits to avoid" https://t.co/Th4LyagO9s— Joe Duffy (@xjoeduffyx) https://twitter.com/xjoeduffyx/status/592342737304719360">2015/4/26
although I dont know if he was talking about his own language team or the regular VC++ team here.
well, today I want to discuss a little more about Wavefront, to this day what we know about Wavefront are mostly from Svitlana TumanovaWavefront – project dedicated to design of safe and efficient systems programming environment
- Investigated performance impact of transitioning the existing codebase to managed language
- Contributed to incrementally porting the existing codebase to a safer language
but I think I interpreted it wrong previously, I thought the 2 sentences are talking about the same thing. with those new info I think now I can speculate a little more today, maybe they are talking about TWO DIFFERENT languages ! the first sentence specifically talked about a "managed language", that was M#, but the second "safer language" maybe NOT M# ! it could be something like Carbon, a "modern, safer C++", the "new language" Jim Radigan was talking about, and the "type safe code" David Tarditi is working on in his Autobahn project.
well, today we have some interesting stuff,
Ihere is a LinkedIn :lya Smirnov
http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=169066519&authType=name&authToken=NTGsSep 2014 - Present
Software Engineer on a team in the Operating Systems Group, formerly part of Midori
• Designing and developing a safer and more productive systems programming language
• Incrementally converting the current active C++ codebase to the new language
• Contributing to design and improvement of the DOM implementation for Project Spartan
its quite interesting he worked on both a "new language", and "Project Spartan", he didn't mention he worked in different teams during the period, and I don't think MS engineers can freely work on completely unrelated projects in different departments. so what happened here ? err... maybe nothing special actually, but if I am allowed to read really way too much into this and take a wild wild guess, then maybe Spartan is porting their C++ code into the "modern, safer C++" that Andrew Pardoe mentioned, maybe its Carbon C++.
well, talking about Andrew Pardoe, what I didn't mention above is, he actually worked in Midori team for a short time, read his LinkedIn:

OK. another tidbit:
previously I mentioned some patents from the MSP team, one of the coinventor is Alex Riemann
https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=356681776&authType=name&authToken=1PnQJuly 2014 – Present
Senior Software Engineer Lead, Wavefront
March 2008 – July 2014
Senior Software Engineer, Midori OS
Worked on a systems incubation effort implementing a high performance Web Server, Web Application Framework, and Http Client in a managed code environment. I also implemented the SMB2 protocol and a variety of drivers for the system.
the most interesting part here is, he is currently working in Wavefront project, which we already saw before, but dont know what it is, any way, here is another team member, lets take a note :)
@Bass: Midori was heavily related to Phoenix compiler framework, read Chris McKinsey and David Tarditi's LinkedIn for more. now the old Phoenix team is working on LLVM related stuff, maybe we can expect some tech they developed along the way to emerge in their LLVM based projects, at least I hope so.
now lets look into this LinkedIn profile of Andrew Pardoe,

heck ? it looks more and more likely that Carbon wi being productized
