Behind the Code with Anders Hejlsberg (via: Cape Cod Gunny Does Delphi: Priceless)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/02/26

I remember having heard this interview on audio a long while ago, but couldn’t find it back. Now I stumbled across Cape Cod Gunny writing about¬†this great video where Anders Hejlsberg is interviews by Research Channel¬†for an hour. To quote Cape Cod Gunny:

I just watched this interview with Anders Hejlsberg for the first time. This is truly an amazing interview. It’s rather long, about 1 hour, but it is so worth it. I’m not giving anything away… you’ll have to just watch and enjoy.

I am giving a few things away: trip down memory lane, putting big parts of software development history into perspective,

Since Anders has been so versatile, influential and still humble, this is a must watch for anyone in the software field. To quote Research Channel:

This episode features industry luminary, Anders Hejlsberg. Before coming to Microsoft in 1996 he was well noted for his work as the principal engineer of Turbo Pascal and the chief architect of the Delphi product line. At Microsoft, he was the architect for the Visual J++ development system and the Windows Foundation Classes (WFC). Promoted to Distinguished Engineer in 2000, Anders is the chief designer of the C# programming language and a key participant in the development of Microsoft’s .NET Framework. In this show, Anders is joined by a surprise guest. This episode of ‘Behind the Code’ is hosted by Barbara Fox – former senior security architect of cryptography and digital rights management for Microsoft.

Thanks Gunny for pointing me at this!

(PS: how a video published in the C# 3 era can be so current <g>).

And if you feel for more, here, here, here, here and here are some more, are a few lists of videos where Anders speaks.
From a historic perspective, I like these most:
