Eric Lippert is a principal developer on the C# compiler team. Learn more about Eric.
Good heavens I can't believe it's been two years since I wished Channel 9 a happy fifth birthday.
Obviously it's been a busy month for me doing interviews. If you're not sick of hearing me rattling on about compilers, Roslyn, and so on, check out my latest C9 interview with Charles and Erik Meijer.
Well you don't see this very often: 0 comments in a post by Eric Lipper!
Anyway, I liked watching a video of the younger Eric hahaha
I liked the segment about the difficulties you encountered in implementing a high-performance compiler in C#. It was similarly interesting to hear about what the problems the VS2010 team ran into with WPF.
I'd like to hear more about what you ran into and what you think can be improved. Odds are the problems you've found are not specific to implementing C# compilers, and would be of general interest to anybody writing a large system in C#.
