  • Joe Duffy, Huseyin Yildiz, Daan Leijen, Stephen Toub - Parallel Extensions: Inside the Task Parallel

    Nice Talk... , its nice to see the amount of effort being put in to it....
    Next one as said is with Don Syme...

    Just can't wait for that...(Don is great)
    F# is very cool and is my favourite language with C#..

    My Question for Don Syme is when we ll have WinForms/WPF designer support for F# in Visual Studio...
    Also i won't mind alot of talks about F# in next video...

    Why Functional language is important...
    How F# can solve the problems of Multi Core/Parallelism.., talk about F# async workflows, asynchronus I/O.....
    Any upcoming new feature details...+ when the F# will get Productized ...full details or whats the target....

    Alot of questions about F# and How much will Microsoft push it in to mainstream..
    I kind of think it as very immense but still very much general purpose language...along with its heavy use in computation work or financial analysis...or etc..

    Also i would recommend others to read out fantastic book "Expert F#"..........

    Especially about how we can make Functional languages to truly evolve by adding sort of Transaction thing...( which has been well done in data world )


    You may be interested to hear that Haskell has had transactions since 2005. In fact, there's a channel 9 video about them with Simon Peyton Jones and Tim Harris (though it's more general, and not specifically about their Haskell implementation).


    Just checking out that video of Peyton Jones and Tim Harris...
    Thx for the info...

    This is very interesting and the languages like F# also popping up...
  • Burton Smith: On General Purpose Super Computing and the History and Future of Parallelism

    It was super pleasure to listen the thoughts & techniques and the way things have evolved in the Parallel WORLD.....by Burton Smith..
    Especially about how we can make Functional languages to truly evolve by adding sort of Transaction thing...( which has been well done in data world )

    It was super great ...& just put his name in ur pocket Charles, so that we can have more of him in future...and may be if u can find more of architects ..., then it will be super awesome..

    F# & talk about Don Syme is also nice ..., who built generics for .NET
    F# is really super cool language and i have started learning it, its just awesome and as a Programmer you really get to learn something that really develops you..in back...

    Once again thx to Burton Smith for such an awesome talk..

    cheers Charles..

  • Bill Gates: Backstage at the Office Developer Conference

    Awesome Dan,
    But if you kinda mention, whom u gonna interview next then we(Niners) can have lot of fun & even tell for some particular questions that we would like to listen about...

    thx anyways..
  • Charles Nutter and Wayne Kelly: Making Ruby Run on Static Virtual Machines - JRuby(JVM) and Ruby.NET

    Exactly the kind of talk i was thinking about...

    DLR and Ruby, i hav been looking into it recently...

    so thx for this one charles, Downloading...

    seems very much interesting...

  • Dan Ingalls and Allen Wirfs-Brock: On Smalltalk, Lively Kernel, Javascript and Programming the Inter

    Excellent Talk, Good stuff but i tend to agree what charles said, developers like real programming languages not the dynamic sort of......

    Lets see where this all goes in to future...

    Learn't most important thing from video was use :-http://www.live.com 

    Thx, for all the cool stuff...Smiley
  • This Week on Channel 9: Feb 8, 2008 Episode

    Much better than first time...
    Thx..

  • Patrick Dussud: Managing Garbage Collection

    Awesome Awesome Awesome....
    Super Cool...
    Thx...

    Charles does he have any with Anders Hejlsberg...?
    Cheers for this one, it was awesome and great..

    Also, Gilad had his viewpoints and is nothing wrong or arrogant..


    well ofcourse he is entitled to his own oppinion
    but i think he is definitly wrong about people not wanting to learn.. its very hard not to learn as a programmer.. its a creative process. i think that if you dont like learning you will fail as a programmer and end up doing other work. also, as previously stated, real world programmers does have a job to do. they dont always have the time to stroke their beards and bury themselvs in theory, but that doesnt mean they dont want to, i whould certinaly like to have time to do that (as long as its useful atleast).

    what i find arrogant is his blatant disses of far more successful technoligis like c#, java, the clr and c++ as crap (compared to newspeak and smalltalk), and that he attribute their success to programmer ignorance rather than quality of the respective systems..

    its like its never the fault of smalltalk or erlang or haskell or whatever that they are not widly accepted, because they have no flaws (according to their inventors/proponents). its just that everone else is to stupid to understand their greatness. i know im exaggerating but you get my point

    to me, thats the same kind of rethoric that mac and linux fanbois (that do not make up the entirety of those communities) use against windows. "its crap and people only use it because they're stupid, if they where smart (like me) the whould use the system im using"

    i know he doesnt say that but to me, he(and many others) comes across like meaning that..  it doesnt really sound like hes making a joke, but charles tells me his sense of humor is complex..  i think "jokes" like are very ofputting to the programmer comunities he whould want to use stuff like newspeak. if youre reading this gilad, please consider this constructive feedback.

    a great example of someone who does not come across as arrogant and make "his" technique sound very appealing and approachable is erik meijer. he does a great job explaining the concepts of fp without make it uncessecary complicated. so major bigup on erik. i think Gilad whould have a far easier time getting smalltalk and newspeak widely accepted if he took a page from erik

    and another thing, saying that you can make dynamic systems fast and efficient is not good enough. you have to actually do it. like what microsoft has done with the dlr.. twice as fast as cpython last year, and its built on the clr with its static type system

    but again, a very interesting video, just because i disagree with some stuff doesnt make it bad


    I Completely agree with you .., with every single line indeed, specially that about the windows-linux thing...
    Erik Meijer is great, & he makes us feel even more great that is what the most important part is...
    DLR seems quite interesting to me now..., it will play a major role in future versions of .NET...
    Once again thx to Charles for such an awesome video...
