.NET, MIX, Work

We saw so many amzing demos this morning.

My preferate… well, I loved to see .NET play chess against JavaScript. To do this, ScottG programmed a Silverlight application, and used the exact same Chess algorithm in C# and in JavaScript. This application allowed to play against the machine, and to select with engine each player was playing with, so it was possible to let the JavaScript engine play against the .NET engine.

The application was displaying the number of nodes processed while running for each engine, so it was easy to see how much more powerful the .NET engine is. And I really mean so much more. The .NET engine was computing millions of nodes while the JavaScript engines computed just a few thousands. Of course, .NET wins.
