The project code-named TESLA in Microsoft Research is being spearheaded by Brian Beckman and Erik Meijer. LINQ is the first released technology aimed at democratizing the Internet coming from Microsoft.

TESLA is intended to reduce the barrier to writing applications allowing your average person entry into the programming world.  Recent artifacts coming from TESLA research:

    • XML Literals in VB
    • LINQ
    • XLINQ
    • LINQ to SQL

From Monoids to LINQ, Brian and Erik provide insight into the future of the .NET Framework languages at Microsoft and how they plan to change the Cloud as we know it today. 

Enjoy more great content from InfoQ on LINQ and our previous interview with Eric Meijer.

Several typos by Nico Verwer

There are several typos in the transcription of the interview.
The 'treat year' architecture that Erik spoke about is of course "three tier".
The book "Introduction to Functional Programming" is written by Bird and Wadler (not Burgan Wildler). And I am not going to sell my first edition, Erik!

Re: Several typos by Nico Verwer

And "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs" is by Abelson and Sussman.
