My .NET Rocks Interview

Pete Brown - 28 July 2011

Last month, I got to sit down and record a great interview with Carl and Richard of .NET Rocks. I had a great time chatting with them about everything from Silverlight and WPF to the Commodore 64 to the .NET Micro Framework, MIDI and manufacturing your own circuit board.

Carl and Richard talk to Pete Brown from Microsoft about the cool things he's working on, including building a Commodore 64 emulator in Silverlight! Pete also touches on the fact that Silverlight is not dying at all - there's lots of good things going on! The conversation digs into Pete's favorite new features of Silverlight 5. Pete is the author of Silverlight 5 in Action, you can get a discount by using code s5ia38 at the Manning web site. Ultimately the conversation ends up on the .NET Micro Framework and MIDI - music and geekery collide!

You can listen to the interview on the .NET Rocks site here, or even better yet, subscribe to their podcast on your Zune/WP7 or iPod.

Also, the code I provided to them is a bit outdated now, since Manning decided to release an even better one (50% off rather than 38% off).
