Erik Meijer on Democratizing the Cloud

This talk was the keynote for yesterday, and I came out of it with a profound sense of shock. If this is where Microsoft is headed, then they are in a real problem.

Some of the things that really bothered me:

  • Don't learn anything new, let Microsoft chew it up for you first.
  • Let us compile our C# to JS (good) and then just make some of the calls a remote ajax calls (bad).
    I would have thought that they would have learned from the DCOM debacle, if nothing else. Location Transperancy is a Bad Thing.
    In general, Too Much Magic is a bad thing.
  • SQL and JS are assembly language concepts, you should only work in C#, and let Microsot handle them.

That was so wierd, and so out of touch with reality...
