There's some people at MIT that appear to think that the abstractions will break down and we need to program in something like RALA http://rala.cba.mit.edu/ for optimal performance on future hardware - but let's hope not.

I want to apply graph databases for program representation and querying. Doing semantic analysis via graph queries. Represent entire software projects, and revisions, in a graph database. Have semantic analysis be graph enrichment. Same datastructure. The graph can also capture lexical aspects like whitespace, tabs and newlines.
The now defunct Oslo project appeared to go in that direction.
With MSR Nyad, MSR Trinity, Datomic, Gremlin, Star Dog etc., it appears the world is speeding towards a graph future, we "just" need optimal efficiency along with the optimal flexibility of graphs.
I would be disappointed if Windows 9 did not do something for the desktop now that the tablet UI is a done deal. But it's understandable that they couldn't overhaul the desktop as well in the same timeframe.
Great video. Enjoyed it a lot. WRT is a really great story for developers.
Great technology. It will be very interesting to hear about phase two, when it arrives, which is the improved optimization in the cloud. It's also cool to think about application updates arriving automatically without the interaction of the developer because an improved compiler yields improved performance. So the end user could see messages like "applications updated with improved performance". That must be a pretty motivating thought for the team.
Two great software engineers with a lot of respect for eachother and their complementary work. I don't think you have to be a Dane to see that.
Dart appears a little more idealistic while TypeScript is super pragmatic and still a great step forward for building more complex apps. I don't know how you cannot like this diversity and plethora of choice.
The next generation of web developers are lucky to have this wealth of diversity at their fingertips. I look back 10-15 years and think about the sorry state of things back then and how much better things are.
Still, I will not say I love the browser stack, DOM, etc. At some point it will transform into something very different and this organic process is fascinating to watch.
Someone is bound to do a Dart to TyeScript compiler.
Ahh yes, SimpleGeek indeed - oh blog where hath thou been
Glad to see Chris back in the UI game.
And felix, he's called DOM Box

Holy Camoly! That's a pretty substantial library for a non-Microsoft source.
Thanks for the tip. This should be useful when I start some WinRT development within the next year.
