  • .NET 4.5: Oleg Lvovitch and Kevin Ransom - Managed ​Extensibili​ty Framework (MEF) 2.0

    Great episode and wonderful guys. They made some issues about MEF1 really clear and I really hope to see them again before MEF2.

    MEF2 is only during it's beta stage so the release date will be great time for another interview to hear what are the latest bits inside the release.

    Also some examples with either code or whiteboard about scoping will be very helpful.

    Thank you for the great work.


  • The Visual Studio Documentary: Part One (In celebration of the 2010 Launch)


    I've seen the first part of this Visual Studio history videos and there are interesting things in it, but there is much more to history - people talk there like they act in a sealed vacuum without Java, Unix, Linux, Mac, Google and many other companies and products all influent Microsoft and Visual Studio.

    If you make history film, make it on how history was, not how you wanted it to be.


    Microsoft was the first one to create developers community? are you kidding me?

    Also where does COM disappear? it is, till this very day, one of the most fundamental technologies that all of Microsoft product really on, .NET 4.0 has new features specifically for COM interop.


    Thank you,
