I agree, an in depth discussion between Erik and Don would be fun. I wouldn't mind seeing them point out the major differences between F# and Haskell, as well as how to write Haskell-esque F#. I would think we would see a lot of material similar to Matt
Podwysocki's articles on monads.
By the way, if you are interested in more videos, community, etc. around F#, please join Community for F# (http://c4fsharp.groups.live.com). We have Live Meetings every third Tuesday of each month at 12:00 pm EST. Details can be found on the Live Group (you'll
have to join to see it though as Live Groups doesn't allow anything to be just public :-/). Hopefully Don will join us soon! Tomorrow we have Steffen Forkmann talking about Fake (F# make), Natural Spec, and Functional NHibernate.
While I have really enjoyed my iPhone, when the Zune HD came out, I thought to myself that Microsoft had just toasted Apple on UI/UX design. I was a little sad they didn't launch WP7 then, but the quality is apparent and should help make up ground over the
next few years. Well done!
Interesting interview, especially the piece about Excel as a (sort-of) language workbench. I'm gathering that many in the DSL forefront see the future of programming as writing DSLs for specific platforms (i.e. Oslo), frameworks (i.e. Rails), or the actual
language used for writing the code in a specific business domain (i.e. DDD). I find that an interesting proposition, though I can only imagine the number of DSLs we'll see as most programmers (or at least I do) like digging into the nuts and bolts and making
things fit their own mindset.
