  • Are there programming languages I should avoid learning? (.NET)
    .NET Core and the C# compiler are both free software under the MIT license. And yes those FSF articles are old.
  • Technitium DNS Server v6.4 Released!
    Just confirmed it from here: All models of generation 1 and Pi Zero are not supported because the .NET Core JIT depends on armv7 instructions not available on those versions.
  • Stackoverflow’s Jobs filter gets it:
  • Fixing analyzer problems in multi-targeted Umbraco packages | 2021-07-28
    After some discussions with others, we came to the conclusion it must be .NET at fault so I went and reported the issue on GitHub.
  • PHP isn't that like really bad?
    Yes, .NET has been running on Linux and Mac natively for 5 years now. Officially supported. (
  • Java to C# code converter online
    What you call "meme", I call .NET appeals to net-new developers, students, and new technologists, which is one of the Themes of .NET, which guide the platform, languages, and tooling roadmap.
  • C# as you know it but with Go-like tooling (small, selfcontained, native exes) | 2021-06-25
    I believe license for the VScode C# plug-in prohibits using it with VScodium.

    I didn’t know this until recently when someone pointed it out.

  • What to Expect in .NET 6 | 2021-06-25
    With .NET 6 already in preview, we can see impressive features and improvements on .NET 5. It targets features that were not present in .NET 5, like a next-generation Xamarin. This lowers the barriers between desktop and native mobile development. It means better integration between the many different Windows UI toolkits. There are also many other considerable and smaller-scale enhancements in .NET 6. Microsoft has laid out point-by-point on its official .NET product roadmap.
  • Announcing .NET 6 Preview 5 | 2021-06-18
    This preview was actually meant to ship a few days prior:
  • Hacker News top posts: Jun 17, 2021
    Microsoft Ubuntu repositories are broken because of space issues\ (54 comments)
  • Microsoft Ubuntu repositories are broken because of space issues | 2021-06-17
    Just to clarify the title, Space in this context is the 'Biggest Key on your Keyboard' kind not the 'On Disk' kind.

    It looks like a parsing issue where something in MS's automated process is replacing various parts of filenames with spaces. Looks like / and _ at a glance, but there could be more.

    Just trying to prevent this type of comment, which I can only assume came from HN as nowhere in the Github issue does anyone mention disk space. --

  • Does anyone know what's coming in C#10 and approximately when we're likely to see a production release? | 2021-06-13
  • .NET/C# is a god damn mess for writing windows desktop apps - change my mind! | 2021-06-12
    And in the last 20 years, developers have required users to install Java and .NET Framework as a prerequisite for their apps - that changed with .NET Core because that model was problematic. Still, you are free to ask your users to install .NET 5 beforehand and ship an executable that's a few MBs in size. But even 30-50MB is acceptable for a GUI app these days.
  • I wanted to make a quick video about the differences between classes and structs in C#. It turned into a much deeper exploration where I learned a handful of things I definitely didn't expect. I hope it is useful to other people!
