Anders Hejlsberg on Programming Languages

Anders Hejlsberg at Microsoft Development Center Copenhagen (MDCC) talking about Where are Programming Languages Going? He comes in at about 3:07 and opens with a demo of Turbo Pascal to celebrate it’s 25th anniversary this month.

I love the stats he opens with about where programming languages were when Turbo Pascal came out 25 years ago. A great talk!

Covers DSL, Functional Programming, LINQ, etc.
