For those of you who love .Net and have an interest in Web standards and Interoperability at Microsoft, then listening to the interview with Jean Paoli, the General Manager of Interoperability Strategy at Microsoft, with .NET Rocks!, is a must.
Jean Paoli was part of the team at the W3C that created the XML specification. Jean does a great job of helping us understand how huge the interoperability effort at Microsoft is. He also digs into the iterative (almost agile!) process of developing web specifications by building prototype code and taking that experience back to the working group.
In the interview, Paoli draws upon his experience as a co-creator of the XML 1.0 standard to discuss XML, web standards, and the role of interoperability within Microsoft.
The interview, embedded below, is hosted by Richard Campbell , Microsoft Regional Director and Carl Franklin, MSDN Regional Director for Connecticut.
