About .NET Internals. This is a weekly series of meetings for all members of the .NET team where we discuss topics to help further fundamental understanding of .NET, including the runtime and libraries. Each session is typically more of a group discussion than a lecture, with a leader whose primary purpose is to organize and guide discussion. Topics may be very .NET specific, or more general, and they may cover anywhere from low-level details of the system to higher level design and history. We usually say "Doors close at 4:02! Please, no laptops in this meeting. It is distracting for others, and it is difficult for you to participate in the discussion while reading email."

    The Discussion

      Hey guys,

      This is an interesting talk, with some nice insights in which problems arise when wanting to implement such large engineering effort on different platforms.

      However it's unfortunate that the quality of the audio/video is really bad, it's a bit annoying to watch...
