Hanselminutes Podcast 96 - Starting Small with F# with Dustin Campbell
My ninety-sixth podcast is up. This episode was recorded at CodeMash in Ohio last week. Dustin Campbell is a lead developer at DevExpress working on CodeRush and "Refactor!" He's also a gifted teacher and gave a great session on F# at CodeMash so I know I wanted to get him on the show. He's only been working with F# for less than a six months, but his grasp of the historical context that F# should be placed in and knack for explaining it made his a great talk.
In the vein of becoming a better programmer by reading more code, Dustin suggests that we improve our C# by borrowing concepts from F#. Be sure to check out his blog and his list of resources on F#.
If you have trouble downloading, or your download is slow, do try the torrent with µtorrent or another BitTorrent Downloader.
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 about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. 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?
