Coffeehouse MS in France 15
  • Rebecca Norlander - Challenge and Success

    Very nice, very clear voice.
  • Expert to Expert: Erik Meijer and Bertrand Meyer - Objects, Contracts, Concurrency, Sleeping Barbers

    Very good video. This was very nice to see Bertrand Meyer speaking about his work. Thanks for bringing this.

    BTW, does he have to take into account the customers who do not see a barber and walk away? That was very funny!! Big Smile

  • Kevin Moore: New Features in WPF 3.5

    This is a fantastic technology. The kind we've been waiting for, for 15 years or so.
  • Peter Spiro: The power of having fun, building great databases, and leadership

    Fun and creativity! Sounds like a whole program! He definitely has
    an interesting approach to management. Actually, more generally,
    MS has a unique approach about creativity for software developers.
  • Simon Peyton-Jones: Towards a Programming Language Nirvana

    Not only was it nice, informative and too short, but it was just funny!! Big Smile Big Smile I laughed a lot... More like this one.

  • Doron Holan - Kernel Mode Driver Framework

    > "I guess charles could have used a synonym for complicated"

    Nothing wrong with Charles, I was speaking of the overall video
    and associated posts.

    When complexity gets high, it becomes a requirement to
    formalize and structure well. In this sense the framework
    described sounds like a good help. On the other hand, it is
    expected from someone working on low-level device drivers to
    have the ability to deal with complexity. Still, it is always a good
    idea to write frameworks that lean naturally to good design
    and coding practices.
  • Doron Holan - Kernel Mode Driver Framework

    Good interview. And why use the word complicated so many
    times? For sure developing a kernel mode driver is not easy,
    but the speaker had a clear voice. Also I'd be cautious about
    those "write those 1000's lines of code in 5 minutes, and that
    will only be a couple lines now". Still the formalization into a state
    machine is interesting. Also I appreciated when the speaker said
    they're trying to be consistent. Good tools do not try to do your
    work, they help you do good work.
    How do the mini-drivers fit into this? Are they simply outdated?

    Managed code drivers? Sad Ark! One day will come when we'll
    spend long winter evenings around the fireplace, telling our
    great-great-grand-children (thanks to bio-engineering) odd stories.
    A long time ago, there were people who actually understood
    what's going on in an operating system. Those programmers
    left us a great legacy. Aaaahhh! More, more of those fairy
    tales!! Wink

    Who said Java was one of the greatest things that happened
    to the developer community? Perplexed
  • Shankar Vaidyanathan - VC++ IDE: Past, Present and Future

    Tell me the reason that why c++ programmers should move from 2003 to 2005? As a matter of fact, there are still few people use VS 2005 or write C++/CLI code...So, I prefer VS 2003 or VS6...that's my choice.



    Even if you do not use C++/CLI, VC++ 2005 compiler is much better
    than VC6 compiler. Language support is better, preprocessor is
    better, IDE is richer... So far the only code I could not compile with
    VC++ 2005 is some forward template declaration. But it's ok. I have heard some people would like to see this feature removed from the language (although unlikely).

    Your post was funny Smiley The stained glass windows was a good one.

    Hmm... religious subjects.... You must be talking about this "churn" thing?



    Churn is not a religious issue with me.

    I keep hearing the word churn from  current and retired Microsoft developers.

    For example, see a great video interview with Jason Zander on the various versions of the .NET Framework. He uses the word churn.

    I work in an Microsoft based enterprise shop that has its own ERP application and churn is an issue.

    However, for my own moon-lighting work, I need both .NET 3.0 and 3.5 or 4.0, Expression, and Visual Studio 2007 ASAP.

    I liked your photos!
