Presentation: Erik Meijers on Democratizing the Cloud


Erik Meijer is an architect in the Microsoft SQL server division where he currently colloborates with the Microsoft Visual C# and the Microsoft Visual Basic.NET  language design teams on data integration in programming languages.  His work is trying to stretch the .NET framework to cover the Cloud such that it will become possible to incrementally and seamlessly design, develop, and debug complex distributed applications using your favorite existing and unmodified .NET compiler and deploy these applications anywhere. 

In this presentation filmed at QCon 2007, Erik presents an overview of LINQ:

  • solving the impedance mismatch
  • deep language support for tables
  • solving the N-tier problem
  • application design patterns for the cloud
