3 thoughts on “I talk about C# and VB Co-Evolution on Channel9 (and some F# …)

  1. This was a very nice talk.
    I can’t say that I like all of it (I get the feeling that C# is stuck where it is right now as long as VB.net takes to cover up), but I do like your overall strategy to co-evolve.
    As I’m more interested in FP: can we hope that you concentrate more on F#? ;)
    When you don’t want to introduce more stuff into C# because the language got to big please to us all a favor and work on the CLR and make it unterstand type classes :) (of course you only have to supoort this in F# ;) )

  2. It’d be nice to see C# and VB.NET be identical except for minor syntax differences.
    It’d be nice to see a language conversion assistant to convert from C# to VB and VB to C# from MS.  This would greatly help since many .NET shops want to have/support only one language.
