  • Paul Vick and Erik Meijer - Dynamic Programming in Visual Basic

    I don't know how others feel - but to me this interview was embarrassing (almost painful) to watch.  Between Paul Vick fumbling around basic reflection code and the terrible interview questions that needed to be re-routed by the interviewees, what should have been a pretty straightforward feature demo came unglued several times.

    Unfortunately, this probably served to perpetuate the stereotype that VBers are not the sharpest knives in the drawer.  (Compare this video to the recent Anders/LINQ interview, for instance.)

    As someone who uses VB & VB.NET (as well as C#) for a living, here's hoping that we'll see a better representation of VB in future Channel9 videos!  Although I guess it's hard to complain - this content is free after all…
