What is this??



Are you a social developer? Carl and Richard talk to Jeremy Clark about his experiences trying to draw developers at events out of their shells. In the end, especially at an event, people want to talk - you just have to get the conversation started. The conversation turns to skills that can benefit your career, including public speaking and writing. Being able to communicate effectively in various forms can help your whole team be more productive by getting people on the same page of an idea. It's a skill like any other, and well worth cultivating!

Jeremy Clark makes developers better. By drawing on over 15 years of experience in application development, he helps developers take a step up in their skillset with a focus on making complex topics approachable regardless of skill level. He is a Microsoft MVP for .NET, and he has authored seven courses for Pluralsight, including "C# Interfaces", a course aimed at giving developers a clear understanding of abstraction. Jeremy lives in Southern California with 2 cats and a banjo.

Web development is moving fast, and John Papa is in the race! Carl and Richard talk to John about his current views on Angular and other SPA frameworks - coming to Anglebrackets this fall! The conversation dives into the inevitable comparisons between Angular, Aurelia and others - but there is no one right way. Then John talks about the new Visual Studio Code, which really hasn't got much to do with Visual Studio at all - it's an editor, rather than an IDE. This leads to a conversation about development work styles in general - do you like having everything all in one place in the form of Visual Studio, or happier with a more roll-your-own solution with separate editors, debuggers, etc. So many choices for development today!

John Papa is a Google Developer Expert, Microsoft Regional Director and MVP, and author of 100+ articles and 10 books, and is a former technology Evangelist for Microsoft client teams. He specializes in professional application development with technologies including HTML5, JavaScript, CSS, Angular, Gulp, Knockout, C#, and ASP.NET. He can often be found speaking around the world at keynotes and sessions for conferences such as ngConf, Build, MIX, PDC, TechEd, VSLive and AngleBrackets. John is a co-host of the popular Adventures in Angular podcast and formerly was the host of the show Silverlight TV on Channel 9 and hosted many events including the MIXer and Open Source Fest at major conferences. He currently enjoys authoring courses for Pluralsight. You can always find John at johnpapa.net or on twitter at @john_papa.

Roslyn is out - and it's awesome! Carl and Richard talk to Dustin Campbell about his work building Roslyn over eight years. Eight years is an awful long time, but when you're rebuilding a codebase from scratch, it's hardly unprecedented. Dustin talks about some the decisions made in the re-engineering of C#, including whether or not to keep in the bugs! Taking Roslyn open source is also a huge aspect of Roslyn and it's impact on the rest of the open source products Microsoft is making including the new ASP.NET. Great insight from someone who's been there!

Dustin Campbell is a program manager in the Visual Studio Managed Languages group at Microsoft where he works primarily on the Visual Basic and C# IDE experiences. Before joining Microsoft, he developed much of the low-level plumbing of the award-winning CodeRush and Refactor! products at Developer Express. A regular speaker, Dustin is a noted authority in many advanced areas of the Microsoft .NET Framework and dives deep "under the hood" of any technology that he works with. Dustin is a programming language nut. His favorite color is blue.
