Kate Gregory on C+++, VB.NET, and VSTO
Kate Gregory talks to Carl (in this retro interview-only show) about the new C++, why she prefers VB.NET over C#, Visual Studio Tools for Office, OOP, Sockets, and merry old England! This is the first of our attempt to make .NET Rocks! more geeky and less freaky! We hope you like it!
Kate Gregory has been using C++ since before Microsoft had a C++ compiler, and has been paid to program since 1979. She loves C++ and believes that software should make our lives easier. That includes making the lives of developers easier! She'll stay up late arguing about deterministic destruction or how C++ 11, 14, and 17 are not the C++ you remember. She has helped thousands of developers to be better at what they do. Kate is a Microsoft Regional Director, a Visual C++ MVP, an Imagine Cup judge and mentor, and an active contributor to StackOverflow and other StackExchange sites. She develops courses for Pluralsight, primarily on C++ and Visual Studio. Since 2014 she has been a speaker and Open Content Chair for CppCon, the largest C++ conference ever held.
