    Seems to be very interesting. How about subtitles for those who are unfamiliar with Indian accent? I'm not a native English speaker, thus I'm having a hard time to understand. I'm very interested to know what Mr. Somasegar have to say!

    "o" -> a/e, "d" -> t, "b" -> p Other than those in few words it sounds perfectly alright english to me, far from hard to understand.

    I enjoyed Soma's Madden moment (15:58). "Wouldn't it be nice if you could go to a browser, click on a URL and - BOOM! - there's a developer environment where you can start right then and there."

    Great interview Tina! I think I enjoyed the section about working with young developers, the professional developers of tomorrow. That's something I want to do more myself over the next 15 years of my career as a developer - haven't figured out how yet. I really appreciate the energy and passion Soma's brings to Dev Div.

    Yeah, you're right androidi, “a hard time” is an exaggeration. It’s just a few words here and there actually. I was just annoyed because I couldn’t understand this or that the first time and had to click the progress bar to go back and listen more carefully... After a while I could understand his rhythm and accent and had no trouble anymore.

    This idea, introduced around half way through, that visual studio should be optimized to ensure that developers only have to write code that they alone can write is great!  Why should I have to rewrite some implementation of some complicated pattern, when it can be generated in such a way as to mask the details by means of me selecting my intent and having the tool produce the code?

     

    I love this man!
