    Thanks for the feedback!


    We don't have any plans right now for a sequel, but I'm sure we'll over-promote it when we do Smiley

  • Dan ( and Brian ) are probably doing more to sell Microsoft to programmers than anyone else in their company.  I don't think I have missed one of their shows, ever.


    Contrast the simplicity of VB6 and the first version of .NET that Dan talks about with things like WPF, binding, LINQ, dependency properties, expression trees, and functional programming today. I think a strong case can be made for the need of a .Simple framework and C-Simple programming language.

    Whoa, Dan is a really good speaker, I was gonna skim through it - but I was hooked from beginning to end!
    Was even convinced to play around with some codes!
