Jon Skeet Can Divide By Zero

If you don't know who Jon Skeet is

read this. There aren't many people in the world that come close to his level of knowledge and passion for C#. In fact he mentioned to me the other day that

I have a copy of the C# spec on every machine I work on.

Jon is currently, by a pretty large margin,

the highest-ranking user on Stack Overflow. He's also

written a few books on the subject.

There is no one, anywhere, that could do a better job on this production.

When Jon's Code Doesn't Compile, The Compiler Apologizes

We're going to put this production together like we did

our jQuery series with Dave Ward - Jon and I will work through some examples, focusing on aspects of C# 4, and then we'll work in your questions from Twitter.

Our goal is to provide a resource for programmers to learn the deep-end of C# - it's not necessarily for beginners. We will also make sure that we explain various concepts to a reasonable level, so developers coming in from Java, Ruby, PHP, or (especially) VB.NET can understand what's going on.

Even if you've been using C# constantly over the last 8 years, there are many changes afoot in C# 4 - specifically the new Dynamic bits. I've been working a lot with that over the last few months - including going full-tilt into the Ruby world. Mixing that perspective with Jon's insanely deep C# knowledge... and I think we have a winner.

Scheduling

We're getting started this week and I should have the first video cut and rendered by the weekend. Our goal is to record one episode a week over the next 8-9 weeks, each episode being about 40 minutes or so. That's our goal, at least - but you might need to be patient with us as Real Life will most likely intrude here and there.
