Recording a podcast today - ask your questions

Post icon  Posted 05 November 2010 - 12:06 PM

Time for another podcast, and today we'll be answering more questions! There are a couple from the previous time and those will also be answered today.

The questions can be Dream.In.Code-related (e.g. updates, questions regarding user submissions etc.) or related to specific activities being managed/monitored by Dream.In.Code members (e.g. Microsoft PDC). You can also ask questions related to some development trends/topics (priority will be given to Microsoft dev-related questions since that is my area of expertise).

There are 8 hours before the recording, so I would like to encourage you to ask your questions now if you want them included in today's podcast.

The podcast will be published today around 1:00AM CST.

Here are a couple of questions:

1. Do you think more senior members of the forums should be allowed to post tutorials/snippet freely without moderator approval? Users who've been here for a long time and have a good standing with the community should be allowed to easily submit tutorials in my opinion. Thoughts?

2. I'm mainly a C# .NET programmer. My coworker and myself are starting to learn F# for fun but we wonder if there is a use for this language in the job market. Putting aside the programming 'craft' for a minute, is learning F# a wise investment with regards to finding a job for it?

3. C# 5 is a clear indictment that the language is moving towards the functional aspect of programming. In the future, will knowing C# and F# be a huged leverage tool?

What are some important skills to get hired as a programmer (aside from the ones needed for the job)?

Not to detract from the question, but Mentors already have this capability. Are you also referring to say, authors and experts?
