Scott Hanselman is a pretty well known guy around the .NET world for a bajillion reasons (reasons will not be listed here).
We decided to make it a bajllion and one reasons.
Scott has a podcast, produced by Carl Franklin of .NET Rocks fame, called HanselMinutes. It seems to be generally well liked, and Scott and I thought we'd borrow the branding for a series of short Channel 9 videos.
In this first series (yes: first - if you like it, we might do more), we walked around building 42 and surprised people with impromptu requests for interviews.
A typical Channel 9 interview is booked anywhere from days to months in advance, so this is a different sort of thing.
This one is about Polita Paulus, a dev on the ASP.NET team who is responsible for some well known things. We didn't know what to expect, as we were just going door to door, but we stumbled upon the dev who coded the GridView.
Yeah. We felt pretty lucky about that
Let us know what you think about this format. Another thing to note is that it's shorter than recent 9 videos. We've been seeing a lot of comments from viewers asking that we shorten them up. This one is just under 15 minutes long, so tell us what you think of that as well.
