Brother to Brother: The Sampsons - From Rocky's Boots to the Cloud Frontier

49 minutes, 8 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Mike Sampson (aka Sampy) is a lead developer who has worked on two iterations of Channel 9 and several other websites that sprung from our team. Before joining us, Sampy was a developer on the Visual Basic team. As you'll learn here, he started programming at a young age. Sampy's got mad skillz.

Adam Sampson (aka Sampy's younger brother) is a developer on the Windows Azure SDK team. He's done some very interesting experiments in/on Azure, as you'll see (in fact, he's known as the "guy who gets crazy stuff to run on Azure"). Apparently, MadSkillz are genetic constructs..

This is the first (and potentially last) episode in a series of brother-to-brother interviews on C9. Here, Sampy interviews Adam about what Adam is working on (Azure dev platform samples) and the brothers reveal the secret to their success in software development and more. Tune in.

    Great interview, funny and interesting.   I've had pretty much the same experience learning Linq, and I also consider it a failure when I have to use loop now, Sampy.  Smiley  Also the bit about the math pages on Wikipedia ... too true.  Thankfully Channel9 has some lectures now, so how about some lectures to really understand, fully, category theory (how hard could it be ...)?

    Be careful what you ask for... Smiley


    I do think some very deep (but "shallow" enough in scope so you can actually gain something useful from watching it) lectures/discussions/presentations/conversations are in (or will be in) the media pipeline. So...


    Stay tuned,

    Excellent!  Always looking forward to the great content your whole C9 team puts out!  Big Smile

  • CharlesCharles Welcome Change

    Agreed! The C9 team is the most talented and creative it's ever been.

    Are there any sisters working at Microsoft?

  • CharlesCharles Welcome Change

    Good question. Answer: Maybe.


  • I like this kind of videos! Too much videos in the last weeks were kind of marketing driven (too much for channel 9?).

    More of this "old school channel 9" videos please!
