feb 27 - good dotnet rocks podcast on the #vs2010 launch in april and what's new in .NET 4

  • "this release is major all the way down, it feels like a new beginning too because this move to parallelism is a big deal"
  • for those talking about .NET 4:it's not "paralyze your app", it's "parallelize your app", one syllable, big difference
  • "it used to be office that was the product which led us in UI but it looks like visual studio beat it to the punch this time"
  • what is the video editing software that carl uses
    Sony Vegas Pro 9, said it is done in WPF, more info
  • "at no point do I want to run visual studio over the web, it doesn't have to be a silverlight app, it's ok"
  • "you don't have to say web application anymore, it's just an application"
  • ".NET4 WPF/Silverlight, a very blurred line, just lots of choices"
  • "the launch of visual studio will follow the sun on april 12"
  • talks about geek fest, interesting party
  • "two words for you, dude: youtube"

Notes on other podcasts:

Most of what I currently listen to is .NET related and quite a bit on technology in general and how it is impacting society. I listen to an occasional historical or philosophical podcast.

I record these notes as a way of extracting the gems and remember facts from these podcasts: phrases that ring true or new terms that I look up later. If you see someone walking around Berlin speaking short phrases into his cell phone every couple minutes, that's me.
