Open Web Podcast: Allen Wirfs-Brock, and Pratap Lakshman from Microsoft on ECMAScript, IE 8, and more
Over on the Open Web Podcast the crew interviewed Allen Wirfs-Brock, and Pratap Lakshman from Microsoft on ECMAScript, IE 8, and more. It was a real pleasure to chat with these guys as they talked on a variety of issues, even including their thoughts on business models on the Web!
Allen Wirfs-Brock is the standards guy from Microsoft who sits and works on ECMA. Pratap Lakshman is from the JScript team, and works on the ECMAScript 3.1 committee.
They were gracious enough to joined us on the call to discuss the recent new around ECMAScript Harmony, how Microsoft feels about it, work that is being done in IE 8, performance, and tangents into ideas behind the Open Web.
When a beta of IE 8 comes out, we all download it quickly to find out what was added, what wasn’t, and also making sure that our tricks weren’t taken away!
