#163 Jared Parsons, The C# Compiler, Part 1


Jared Parsons, C# compiler lead at Microsoft talks about the C# compiler.


Who he is, what he does. The compiler team, team size, unlimited resources might not be better. Other roles he performs. What the compiler is, what it does. Impact of the operating system on compiler. Runtime teams. Implementing C# language features. How much work is involved in implementing a feature; review process; a language is more than the compiler. An example of a “small change” - structs with parameterless constructors. Influence of the compiler team on the language design. Where does C# end and .NET begin. Global using and top-level statements. dotnet build; ready to run and trimming.
