Play by Play with Jon Skeet and Rob Conery

Tuesday, March 22, 2016

It started, as most endeavors involving Rob do, with a simple email that ends with “I think it will be fun!”.

Fast forward a bit and I’m in the ExCel London being mic’d up by a film crew. Jon is in the room wearing a t-shirt and the mic keeps falling off. Mine keeps folding under my collar, so I’m buttoned up to the top as if I were ready for morning mass. There’s an AV guy in front of us with safecracker headphones trying to eliminate all the hissing and crackling that comes to life in a room full of electrically powered machinery. We’re swapping microphones, changing cables, and positioning laptops. Just as we think we are ready to go – blam! My microphone belt pack falls off my chair. The lapel mic is ripped off my shirt and is tumbling arse over elbow across the floor. Safecracker guy is grimacing and muttering something in polite British. We’ve been at this setup for 30 minutes now and I’m starting to think the show will not go on.

We get setup again, and the recording begins. For the next 75 minutes we are knee deep in C# code, disassemblies, and expression trees. You can watch those 75 minutes in the Pluralsight Play by Play: C# Q & A.

Rob’s always right. It was fun.
