Hanselminutes Podcast 193: Axum - A domain-specific concurrent programming language with Niklas Gustafsson
My one-hundred-and-ninety-third podcast is up. Scott talks to Niklas Gustafsson about Axum (formerly Maestro), an incubation project at MSDN DevLabs. Axum is a new language based on the Actor model that targets the CLR. It focuses on making concurrency fundamental with principles of isolation, agents, and message-passing.

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.
Telerik is our sponsor for this show.
Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate aboutTelerik is their commitment tocompleteness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.
As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)
Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?
