In our premier issue, back in October 2002, we ran a full-length interview
with Anders Hejlsberg, the Distinguished Engineer at Microsoft responsible
for the creation of the C# programming language. Then, in March 2005, we
presented a follow-up interview conducted by .NETDJ's editor-in-chief, Derek
Ferguson, at Microsoft's Tech Ed 2004 conference in San Diego, California.
Here it is again in full.
.NETDJ: Between now and the last time we spoke, Borland has entered the .NET
space. As an ex-Borland employee who is now one of the most revered .NET
icons, what are your thoughts on this?
AH: I'm very excited that they are doing that! It is the right thing for the
Delphi community and .NET is the logical next place for all Windows
development tools to go. I think it is a win-win situation.
.NETDJ: I didn't realize the last time we spoke that you started off at
Microsoft bu... (more)
I’ve always been puzzled by the ability of some traders to consistently
make money. A cynic would say that anyone who is able to profit in all
adverse economic environments (recessions, depressions, etc.) is most likely
able to do so because they are getting information that is not generally
available. Although the cynic might mean “inside” information by this
statement, I believe that there is a non-cynical interpretation of this
statement that is, to some degree, correct.
Algorithmic trading engines and market data vendors are becoming increasingly
important on Wall Street, ex... (more)
From the upcoming Preview Issue of .NET Developer's Journal
Welcome to the first issue of SYS-CON Media's new .NET Developer's Journal.
We've started this magazine because we're excited about .NET. We're excited
about Visual Studio .NET's ability to bring the power of drag-and-drop,
GUI-based development to even the most complicated kinds of development.
We're excited about the .NET Framework's potential for radically decreasing
the amount of custom code developers must write. Finally, perhaps most of
all, we're excited about .NET's potential to become the industry's platform
CyberSource, a leading provider of payment processing and fraud detection
services, has recently announced their release of a .NET component to provide
developers with access to their services' proprietary API. The service uses a
micro-payments system that is very much in keeping with the new generation of
Web services software. For just pennies per transaction, developers can add
such advanced features to their applications as credit card processing,
geo-location, and tax calculations.
Because this API operates via the Web, it is being touted as a Web service -
however, no suppo... (more)
(November 20, 2002) - It has often been said, "You don't know what you've got
until you lose it." As I watched a recent demonstration of Infragistics'
NetAdvantage Suite, it occurred to me that you also don't often realize what
you're missing until you find it. Microsoft's ASP.NET technology is
absolutely brilliant right out-of-the-box... but Infragistics' NetAdvantage
Suite makes it even better!
I often tell my students to think of ASP.NET as a technology that makes thin,
Web-based applications seem almost as interactive as thick, desktop clients.
