Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Recently I begun to watch the series of lecture Douglas Crockford made on Javascript and other topics. I've been wondering: is there also such lectures/lecturers for other other languages?

EDIT: Thanks for the few answers I'll be sure to check them. But I must say, that personally, I have an interest on languages and technology relative to web development, or any kind of video which content could apply to more than one language. Of course, any good online video resource are still welcome, as I want this question to be as useful as possible for other people.

Also bonus points if the content is downloadable and viewable on iTunes.

There are quite a few MS related ones on channel 9, some good, some not so good. e.g. Erik Meijer has done a few interesting ones on functional programming.

There are some very good ones on TekPub, but they are not free. E.g. Jon Skeet on C#.

Even though they aren't free, TekPub's series are reasonably priced and extremely useful. I get more out of watching someone explain their way through writing a sample program than I do out of most books when trying to pick up a new language. –  Tim Post Apr 18 '11 at 22:28
+1 for Jon Skeet tutorials. –  Karthik Sreenivasan Feb 10 '12 at 5:47

I haven't watched the lectures you describe, but if I can delete the word "such" from your original question: there are phenomenal lectures on Scheme online, by the authors of the greatest book on computer science in the history of the field. I mention this non-hyperbole because you might be thinking "Why would I possibly care about lectures on Scheme?"

Anyway, they are at: http://groups.csail.mit.edu/mac/classes/6.001/abelson-sussman-lectures/
