Now that the news about Express is out everyone is extremely giddy. Well, aren't you? A fabulous piece of software lands in to your lap at the same time a major new motion picture releases at the box office? If I were you I'd be torn between what I was going to do next. Download, install and party on to power programmer paradise or take a ride on the reading railroad all the way down to the megaplex and catch a gander at the new spiderman. Software, superhero, software, superhero, how can you choose between them?
Can't stand it any longer? Need to excuse yourself for a moment? Wait, it gets even better.
What if you could mix both perfections together? What if you could experience super heroes and super-de-dooper software at the same time. I'm not talking about some schmaltzy video game. I'm talking about C# super heroes! Okay, I know I've lost most of you, but bear with me for a moment while I explain. Super heroes have super powers. C# has super features. What if you were to invent a super hero based on supernatural programming powers?
What if instead of spidey-sense, your able-bodied avenger had intellisense?
ChaosKid: “Too late, Nooberman, I've already sabotaged the entire power and communications grid, traffic is at a stand-still, the city is mine!”
Nooberman: “Luckily, I predicted you would do this and used my refactor ray, undoing your mess and optimizing the entire network.”
ChaosKid: “So you say, but the traffic is still in gridlock.”
Nooberman: “Sure, but did you notice the route to my house? Wide open.”
ChaosKid: “Rats! Foiled again”
Err, I guess that's kind of lame.
