I guess the "shy" part is preventing people from applying for a job on c9. having more niners in videos like this might show some of them that there is no need to be shy.
I would have suggested little guru immediately, but I can understand that he needs to focus on his education.
perhaps c9 could have a sub conference on any of the next big events. that way more niners could try there face on camera.
I am sure charles would appreciate getting some assistence, it sometimes seems like he is pulling the cart all by himself, which is certainly romantic for a time, but becomes very exhausting very fast. I know, I've been there, many times...
I still don't think I understand monads and functional programming, my lack of math background is complicating things. But I totally get the complexity built on simplicity to ensure composability part, that is kind of my whole bid.
simplicity meaning: "easy to decide" as opposed to "easy, because I don't have to decide". so I guess functional programming will still require a very particular mindset to be successfully employed.
I am really looking forward to seeing more great interviews like this one.
I really like stuff like this. Since I am watching Channel 9 for hours on end (while I am working) I am through anything that peaks my interest and almost anything that doesn't.
There really should be a Brian Beckman show (and also a Jeffrey Snover and Scott Guthrie show for that matter. although you probably should let him have a long vacation first! he looks like a two year crunch at least)
Well and since I am at it already: THANK YOU Charles!
