Hey Daniel -- I have been watching all your parallel videos and wanted to personally thank you for taking the time to create all this quality content, very much appreciated -- the new parallel concepts and IDE support in particular are getting me very excited this end

I want to see more of Matt Duffin!
That guy was smart, passionate and engaging
As much as I hate to say this; a lot of English people talking tech seem to come across as uncharismatic on video (not talking about this one in particular) which is a shame. We really dropped the ball on this one compared to our American counterparts.
Great to see more of these videos coming – we will get there!
Awesome video - I admire Anders immensely.
I recognised Gregor Noriskin at the end with the great question about declarative/functional features creeping into C# and OOP just becoming a "feature" rather than the be-all and end-all. This is a fascinating time i.e. there is a lot of cross-pollination happening in the language space right now.
If I'm honest though I don't like the format of these shows. Don't get me wrong; the content is first rate but I found the interviewer very irritating and the set/audience is not necessary at all.
hey great to see some UK guys on c9!
I met Sarah some time back at a Girl Geek Dinner but I must admit I have been out of the community scene for a while. Time to get involved I think!
That said; I may be at the Sharepoint user group shindig in London later
Couple of points:
You edited a div using WYSIWYG and it updated a CSS declaration in a css file. Although cool; it seems error prone to me due to the complicated nature of CSS. My point is that the div could have a background based on a complicated "cascade" of rules i.e. 20 things could directly or indirectly reference it so what is EW supposed to update when you make the change from design view? Perhaps you standardised on some kind of 1-1 mapping?
Another point was that in Sharepoint designer (this is the other half of the product split from frontpage); there is a very cool CSS feature that lets you identity the effective style applied to an element i.e. due to inherited, explicit and indirect rules. Do we get that here?
Take care guys
Really excited about WPF/e
- Why still no bits for WPF/e? I want them!
- The question about obfuscating your JS/.NET IL for WPE/e work - oh come on. Like you are going to have any trade secrets written in the presentation tier of a web app - byh virtue of the fact you are making it public people could simply look at it and go away and copy it anyway.
- I loved his PR spin about how they have (basically)
have[ed] no intention to make it available for Linux. I could care less anyway
- Will you have the ActiveX activation click for WPF/e apps i.e. because of the
- Roll on ASP.NET AJAX WPF/e extenders I say
- You talk about Firefox having a better debugger than IE? Last time I debugged my JS code with Visual Studio I knew I was in a better place than venkman..
- You hosted the xaml using a script tag in the page, do you support src="" ?
- Was interested to hear about your use of SCRUM for development process methodology - are there many teams in MSFT that use this?
- When you were thinking of the new document format that uses Zip format (with another subset of XAML) - it was XPS!
- On your stripped down version of the framework, how much of the BCL (and features of C#2.0 i.e. generics) is available? (Any C#3.0 features accessible?)
Keep up the good work!
