Various audio/visual interviews or conversations involving me and hopefully interesting technical topics.
This is a 2011 Microsoft Channel9 video featuring myself and Rob Manson having a conversation at the YOW! 2011 conference in Melburne.
This is a 2010 Microsoft Channel9 video featuring myself and Chris Wilson talking about ECMAScript 5 and its support in Microsoft Internet Explorer 9. It’s about 40 minutes in length and I ended up doing most of the talking. Both Chris and I left Microsoft shortly after this so I suppose this was our last official gig as as Microsoft spokesgeeks.
This is a 2007 audio only conversation where I talk about the the history and impact of Smalltalk. Particularly about the Tektronix/Instantiations/Digitalk part of the Smalltalk story. I don’t recall everything we talked about but I sure there is lots of interesting details for programming language history buffs.
