I really should find a more productive thing to do on my breaks.19
I heard of it for the first time. And well, this sounds disgusting.
If this happens, I'll seriously start a revolution of hackers fighting internet providers. Seriously9
Has anyone ever looked over the code that they wrote like two years ago and just felt embarrassed of how bad it is?10
Can't believe the US are talking about removing protection for net neutrality. I'm not based in the US, but hope devs out there are getting behind Net neutrality day and Battle for the net6
I know pretty much everyone here understands the importance of net neutrality, but here’s a nice chart you can share with all your non tech friends explaining the importance of it in terms they understand25
It was fun to watch my entire high school (~1200 people) freak out when I ran "net send * Big brother is watching you..." on what I found to be an insecure computer in my high school's library. Every single computer in the building displayed the pop up message. The town's IT director even showed up to figure out what happened.
I was caught, but they were more happy it wasn't a hacker, and that I discovered that the IT firm the town hired totally botched properly implementing network security, so I was let off the hook.5
Stallman heart failure recipe:
1. Start your UBUNTU LINUX(don't add the GNU part) and set up your .NET Core environment.
2. Download VS Code, the superior text editor for those that do not wish to have carpal tunnel.
3. Open the terminal inside your VS Code instance while inside a .net core project.
4. Type emacs -nw and watch emacs come to life inside of the terminal while living inside of the heretic vs code editor.
Wait for stallman to get a heart attack or a stroke from this.13
this.rant == "long";
This is something I feel strongly about, I hope you do too...
I fucking hate it when I hear that people don't care about net neutrality (and I've heard people say it). There is little in this world untouched by shitty corporations encroaching on the little good that is left in this world.
Yes the internet is full of edgy teenagers, incompetent Seniors (both old people and Devs) and god knows what else. But you know what? I pay my money to copy and paste code from SO (we ALL do let's not lie to ourselves) and I'm not paying a special fee to look at this content or that or send this type of text to that kind of person.
Now then to the point... On 14th December 2017 the FCC will vote on whether or not to allow companies like Verizon and - dare I say it - Comcast to charge more to access certain sites or block you access altogether and otherwise control what you say and do.
I for one, say FUCK OFF and I hope you do to. If you can, call or otherwise contact your Congressperson - you can do that here: https://house.gov/representatives/... . If you're not from the US, you can still help! https://www.battleforthenet.com has lots of information on what you can do to help.
I hope you'll all join me in shouting as loud as we can and preventing this moronic idea from going through.
Hello here is your ISP seems like you to go to devRant please pay us 5$ more each month to be able to access it and pay 10$ more to use full speed of your internet connection on devRant and also there is 15$ fee to be able to use your preferred Search engine. Or you can change your internet plan to extra extra full to choose 3 sites that you will have full speed access on all other you will have 1mb/s.
That's how it will look like in future without net neutrality.14
Just installed VS for Mac and only one word can express my feeling:
I feel really inspired to try learn .NET9
"Trinidad And Tobago" changed their country name to "Trinidad & Tobago", and the .Net framework reflected that change.
So that's why this unit test is failing.
I GUESS BULLSHIT IS NOW INTERNATIONAL.2
After four years of debate, the Telecom Authority of India decided that net neutrality will be the official policy of indian telecom. Any form of discrimination or interference in treatment or content like blocking, slowing down or preferential speed is restricted.
Guess they pulled their head outta their arses on this one.7
First few days as a professional software engineer (c# .net) have gone decent. Made my first bigger commit today started working on a small new feature that requires more work.
CoWorkers are really nice, boss is cool, super chill over all. #feelsgood6
November brings .Net 5, for anyone who cares about that, and after listening to my husband watch Ignite "reveal" advertising container, and all the enterprise virtue signaling therein, I am now to the point where the only thing I can think is "Fuck you Microsoft, and Fuck .Net 5."
During a 30 minute speech, the director of the dotnet platform commits the following flagrant faux pas:
1. Introduces tons of visual studio easy buttons for shit we already do, no mention of VS code support.
2. Shows tools that anyone other than the most insular enterprise mouth-breather have been using for no less than 6 years
3. Gives absolutely no credit to the Open Source community projects backing the features he's showing
4. Shows nothing but mono-cloud integration, makes no mention of any other cloud targets for new features
5. Acts like "deploy your app the cloud from IDE" is something anyone should be doing in 2020
6. Showed an API repl that is pathetic compared to httpie when it was in alpha
7. Showed blazor loading from cache and said "Look at how instantaneous it is" (if you ignore the 5mb of cached payload it took to run the hello world demo)
8. Shows Project Tye, presenting it as a new groundbreaking xyz, fails to mention helm already exists
What's absent is what is most offensive:
- acknowledgment of community contribution
- no linux/mac tools, entirely windows-centric (which jives with my prediction of second-class citizenship for the people who contributed to .net core the most)
- cross-cloud capabilities
- bash/zsh (again with the untermensch relegation)
Fucking microsoft back to their old bullshit.24
Sad to see the net nutrality things in US, I guess VPN business wil be booming for the next few days4
Does anyone know a free hosting that support .net core web api without credit card? It’s just for a school project. IBM Bluemix only supports normal web app and azure needs credit card4
So if Verizon agreed to not SIM lock phones in order to get the the 700MHz Block C license aka LTE Band 13, and now they're SIM Locking phones, does that mean they're going to lose their LTE license?
Just kidding, that'd require an FCC with a spine. But it fucking should.3
"Hi, our client is looking for a dot net developer, and we think you'll be a good fit."
- you got the wrong person i believe.
"you list laravel & phalcon.. Those are .net?"
I'm not sure what to say here, a recruiter whom doesn't see my employed tag & doesn't know how to Google..
Laravel & phalcon is .net.. Aaallrighty then.6
Interviewed 6 candidates yesterday.
all of them had 2+ years of experience in web but none of them know how to use selectors in jQuery other than '#' and '.'
LEARN YOUR STUFF PROPERLY 😠😠😠😠14
So, my UpWork account request is rejected, with a reason that
"already many freelancers with a similar skillset to yours".
In skills I entered
"AngularJS, ASP.NET MVC, .NET Framework, C#, jQuery, Semantic UI, Bootstrap"
Then I resubmitted the request with by adding blockchain and Ethereum.
What should I do 😫
I guess I never can start freelancing.21
So he is in the “elite” team as a “Sr” dev and i’m in the normal team as a ssr dev.
He: Hey look, the ‘F’ case is empty and doesn’t return anything, can you help me? This is some old code and we have to add some features.

The FCC Chairman is going ahead with his plan to repeal net neutrality despite objections from fellow commissioners, the CTO, more than a hundred members of Congress, senators and of course, the people.
What the fuck is wrong with this guy? How far up your own fucking ass does your head have to be to ignore basically everyone's vote against you? What the fuck. This guy is a really piece of fucking work. I hope this bounces back to bite him in the ass real hard.27
I just explained to my dad, who doesn't know a lot about tech, what net neutrality is and about today's vote of the FCC.
His response (I don't know how to properly translate it to English so I will have to wait for AlexDeLarge): 'was sind das für idioten, haben die jetzt alle den Arsch offen? '12
If implemented, India will have the strongest net
neutrality guidelines in the world.
To ajit fuckface pai, please learn something from your origin.
PS: please forgive India for ajit fuckface pai.7
WE HAVE 12 DAYS TO SAVE US NET NEUTRALITY
LET'S GO SHOVE OUR BAD CODE UP CONGRESS' ASS UNTIL THEY FORCE THE FCC TO GIVE OUR RIGHTS BACK7
Someone: How was your day?
Me: When your Net is soo slow that the error message shown for it loads slower.
And so net neutrality dies in the US... Mofo Ajit Pai why you do this to us? Literally 80 percent of people are against this repeal. So what the heck does he do? Repeal em of course. Hope he burns in hell forever. By that I mean I hope he has to have really slow internet forever. Now that would be justice.2
When you know so many programming languages that you start typing something like:
int i as integer1
Ok peeps, this is it!
I have completed my contribution to community projects! Wanted to share with you guys...
I was so impressed/inspired with @ChappIO 's www.jsRant.com project that I wanted to create something similar.
So I created an XML stylized stream of rants, in dark theme.
It also reflects how I feel as software developer with my current knowledge - kinda derelict old school!
The underlying tech is Asp.net core 1.1, using my own .net core API wrapper.
So, here it is:
Was having an internship interview, and the guy starts laughing while reading my resume and says:
"don't put visual basic on your resume if you don't want to work with it"
I proceeded to remove it ASAP.1
Three reasons off the bat for a company to use .Net core:
1.) documentation - Microsoft’s documentation for .net cannot be beaten.
2.) community - the .net foundation and the surrounding community is outrageous. I hate to sound like I thrive on bandwagons but when this many people come together to share and build ideas on one platform, that platform becomes something extraordinary.
3.) Microsoft - I’m a Mac guy but Microsoft has really been pouring into all the right areas the past 3 years and I love seeing where they are going. I now use vscode for all my c#, php, node and front end projects. I am finding myself encapsulated in Microsoft’s large array of products that make me as a developer very productive. If this same company pours themselves into a web framework, It’s a no brained for me to jump behind it.
None of these reasons are technical, that’s a whole other discussion that I would love to touch on later but these reasons alone are enough for any dev to explore the framework14
For fuck's sake man! I know you are an inexperienced junior dev/student but estimating 3 months at 6 hours /day for slightly modifying some C# code is just ridiculous.
I may have never touched anything .NET before but the modification required just 3 fucking lines and I did it in a day. In three months I would have finished the whole fucking project.
PS: VS2017 (RC) was quite lovely.8
it all begin 8 years before i was starting to look at pc stuff after 2 years programming started in me and my family was like wow when i make calculator in terminal afyer all that years take it normal when new app is made by me but still impressed in me and they are proud of me and now i can do lot of stuff with pc im going to high school about network and PCs and im doing programming most of the time ;) Wish me luck on HS
After my colleague noticed me of this..."feature", I immediately thought I'd ask you all, why is it even implemented then?5
Me:- OMG Java 9 is coming in 144 days;
Normal ppl:- ...So what😑😑
Me:- Java 9 is awesome we can type codes in cmd;
Normal Ppl:- I have net beans;

So today I got an email about a job opportunity. The email was in romainian. This is the exact translation and bear in mind that in romanian as in every other language (I guess) alot of english phrases sound very cringy. This is the email:
We need a fearless hero for the IT realm!
X company, a thriving insurance community, is looking for a real hero of software development that can make code using the .NET mystical hammer that can only be lifted by a worthy, deserving and responsible warrior.
You can't fly? Can't shoot lasers? You are not wasting your night time by looking at the moon on tall blocks wearing a cape? Then you could be the hero we need.
Do not worry, the position does not imply superhuman strength :)) However, it requires intellectual strength and attention to detail. You can even use your powers from a comfortable chair in a welcoming team full of other heroes ready to help you. We won't leave you alone, after all even Batman has Robin :))
I have attached all the information you need. Only The Chosen One can open the document so you will know immediately if you are right. :))
If you want to be responsible with your strength, then I'm waiting for your updated English resume with all your heroic deeds in the past.
Remember, not all heroes wear capes!
... WHAT THE FUCK IS .NET MYSTICAL HAMMER??? AND WHO THE FUCK USES ":))" IN AN EMAIL??7
So almost burst a vein today because of a teacher who kept telling us that the .NET orm , Entity framework , loaded the whole database in memory at a context's instantiation , i thought that's kind of stupid thing for an ORM today,considering the hit on performance and memory consumption with large DBs, and asked her to argument why they would adopt such an approach , at the end she said it worked like that and that me saying it's inconvenient is just my stupid opinion . when i looked it up on the internet i couldn't for the life of me find any mention of that behavior and that she was completely WRONG !! i fucking hate this dumbshit university am going to , anyone looking for an intern trying to escape dumb fucks ?5
Working with WPF you often find yourself googling some very inappropriate questions like
"How to take children from parent"2
I sincerely like the moment, when i train a newbie to code .NET showing him/her how far OOP in .NET goes.
I love to give the following example:
var s = "round and round it goes";
s = s.ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString().ToString();
And yeah. It's totally fine.
Because each component of .NET is inherited of object. And the class object supports you with the function "ToString()".
After that, in most of the cases, i get a slightly irritated look from the newbie.
Than i say, "welcome to Microsoft" ;)
I finally add, that the compiler of .NET finally identifies duplicate results and refactores the given code before execution ^^
Coding Is fun, as long as you get the big picture/concept of the language you're using.2
After months of complex backend code, and complex JS front-end, the idea of CSS just bores me now.2
The worst kind of problem you can have while coding is an inconsistent or intermittent bug... For code you didn't originally write...1
So our new teacher executes console applications (C#, .NET) with the VS debugger attached (F5) instead of just letting it execute normally (CTRL + F5).
He complained about the output not showing up (he still gave me full score at least) That's because executing with F5 simply ends the program after Main() is done executing, while CTRL + F5 leaves the window open until you press a key, saying "Press any key..."
So here's what I'm gonna put at the very bottom of Main() in future:
Console.CursorVisible = false;
Console.WriteLine("Press any key...");
At work I use C# / .net but outside work I use PHP / Laravel.
I notice they are very similar.
Also .net used “razor”
Laravel uses “blade” - “razor blade”
Is there some sort of overlap between .net and laravel I’m not aware of?5
I'm so fucking done with net neutrality. the only ones who want it are verion, comcast, and other big isps.
this is fucking merica. nobody wants it, and this is a government designed for the people. I guess it only works in theory.
the talk about this has been fucking exhausting. how much clearer could it be?
how does it keep coming up? so much of the economy is online. why would congress want this? this should be a fucking fundamental right. no bs, just fast speeds everywhere. i hate all the isps thinking that because the world is so reliant on the internet, they control everything.
isps are a service. that's it.
they're not a profiler or advertiser, just a service.
and if that changes, I'll buy a bunch of flash drives and go offline.
bottom line, we should have privacy, neutrality, and a safe web. fuck those greedy bastards.17
.net 1.1 had the best documentation ever written. Microsoft spent an enormous amount of money and a dedicated team of skilled engineers just to write them. It was kind of a great time to be a developer, even though the technology is much better now. The current reliance on community docs doesn't hold up as well.2
My team: "Hey were getting errors with this process, whats going on?"
Net team: "Hey were getting errors with this process, whats going on?"
Me *looks at logs once*: "Did you guys check the logs? There's a 500 error on the Net side app since 3am this morning..."
Net team: "Oh yeah we changed that but we forgot it would break your shit"
Goddammit why am i not on the alertlist if you are all going to call me when shit breaks?! Doesnt make any sense!!
I always feel the people who post hate about Java are .Net Developers and then I like to think they are also the ones who complain about Windows just so I can have that moment of irony.7
I am the only developer for a nationwide company. Everyone else in this company has no idea about IT, from the owner down.
I have about a year of actual IT experience, so God knows how I got this role.
Fellow developers, especially .NET developers, how do you estimate the time required to complete tasks set by none technical people?9
Just got out of the C# .NET technical interview!!!
I think I'm in and they work with some nice projects and companies
I just became a supporter of devRant!
I fucking love this place, and feel I've spent enough time here already to make it worthwhile...don't think I'm going anywhere anytime soon.
In unrelated news, Markey's CRA for net neutrality just needs one more vote to get started on the next hurdle. That said, I had a dream last night about Ajit Pai becoming fucking Jim Jones and poisoning us all...and to wake up the next day and find out about a potential antidote being successful is awesome!!!
I've had a personal project (commercial idea) I've been meaning to get started on for a while, and today I started...
Kudos to the team at Microsoft, they've really gotten .net core and asp.net core to a fantastic place.
And the team at JetBrains have done an amazing job on Rider.
I've been able to get a docker container running SQL Server on linux, as well as Web API projects for an API and an identity server all running with local HTTPS and communicating quite happily, with barely an issue in sight.
Bodes well for the future I hope.
Now I just have to commit to the project and actually finish it 😂1
Migrated a first customer project from ASP MVC 5 to ASP.NET Core MVC 1.1.
Now running under Oracle Linux, with Apache and MySQL.
It's not finished yet but it runs (and I'm really happy with that). I like the new direction with .NET Core, open source and cross platform :-)3
*Releases software for State project comprising of a solution with 3 WinServices and 2 WCF Services*
*Literally 15 min after release*
Email from State: "Here is an updated wsdl schema that is going literally fuck up everything you have released, enjoy!"
Me: *starts convulsing*
(first post/rant on here)
So I recently started at a new company. I was kinda aware that the project I'm working on would be rather old school (to put it in a nice way :-)).
Part of my job is to 'industrialize' and update/clean up the existing code so there is less time spent on fixing bugs due to bad design.
One of the first things I had to do was to write a new interface to integrate with external software.
I already noticed some rather nasty habits, like prefixing every variable with m (don't know why), private fields for every property (all simple properties) and a whole lot of other stuff that either is obsolete or just bad practice.
Started writing clean code (simple classes with properties only, no m prefixing, making sure everything is single responsibility, unit tests, ...).
So I check in the code, don't hear much from it again besides the original dev/architect that started the project using my code to further work on that integration.
Now recently I started converting everything from TFVC to Git (which is the company standard but wasn't used by our team yet). And I quickly skimmed through my code to check if everything was there before pushing it to the remote repo.
To my surprise, all the code I had written was replaced by m prefixed private variables used in simple properties. BL classes were thrown in together, creating giant monstrosities that did everything. And last but not least, all unit tests were commented out.
Not sure what I got myself into ... but the facepalming has commenced.14
This is not really the reason I got these parts, but I just had them lying around and have been following the project for some time... so why not? Haha. I was also thinking it might be cool to set these up to auto-disrupt known AP names that would be issued by companies most responsible for the dismantling of Net Neutrality. Like just make them in a dirt cheap throwie form-factor and let the companies deal with pissed off customers for a few days until the battery dies (thinking the little generic LiPo’s that cheap quadcopters use would give a few days if attacking sporadically and using the ESP’s sleep function). Just riffing here... ;P ;D2
When you're debugging a method called
GetPatronByPatronId(id) and see these lines of codes at the end3
Forget about a missing semicolon. I was forwarding Neo4j to port 4747 and calling it in Asp.Net with port 7474 in Docker containers. It took me 6 hours to figure that one out. Lol, It's time for the weekend.4
Our prof at university told us at the beginning of the semester, that .NET is the most used framework for web based systems and it would take a big part in this semester. He brought up a statistic, in which .NET filled around 43 %, and wasnt even the most populated one. Nobody seemed to be impressed, that the first information he provided to us, was obviously wrong but okay.. After that I just looked up the statistic and filtered the values for my own country, in which Im "probably" about to work later on. The percentage for .NET in my country was 4 %. I told my classmates, that this guy is talking complete bullshit. Still nobody cared. During semester we learned stuff, that was btw factually wrong. In the end, we didnt even had one lecture about .NET. Now my classmates finally care and are flaming all day about this guy. Didnt expect that... (Irony off)
There is one more story of this ridculous prof that will follow soon :D5
Building out our new prototypes API with .NET core. Whats special about this decision is we primarily work with php, node.js and ruby for our server side needs.
After playing with C# for a few months though, I felt as if we were being neglectful in our own experience by not experimenting with a strict typed language with the amount of projects we undertake.
I'll say C#s documentation is exquisite. Php's docs give me what I expect which is "this method takes string, array, ect. It returns a string under these circumstances, array under these and therefore returns mixed. Great, no biggie. Its fast as hell to write with and no one minds writing an "instanceof" or "isArray()" here and there to make sure things are cohesive.
But working with C#/.Net im learning is a whole other ball game. Documented to the moon and back for any given topic. It seems to be focused more so around the correct engineering of low level components and following specific paradigms then it is "getting shit done" while still offering the tools and interfaces needed to scaffold turn key APIs.
I dont know how I'll feel coming out of this build but diving into its currently eye opening.
This is dUcKtYpEd diverging from his roots.8
-- This is my first rant so sorry if it's bad--
We have a nice project that I am working on that needs to store and interact with location data. It is a .NET Core API using Entity Framework Core to interact with the database. All good and well. Until today when I started working on the implementation of storing location data we retrieve from mobile devices.
SQL has a nice data type named: "Geography" which can store a location and do calculations on it with queries. Such as proximity and distance which is what we need.
But then it turns out that EntityFramework Core does not have support for the Spatial data types. even though version 6 did have Spatial support.
Then i found the following issue on GitHub: https://github.com/aspnet/...
Turns out this feature has been requested since 2014 and is even on the "High-priority" list and is still not implemented to this day. Even though in the issue many people are asking to have this implemented.
WHY IS THIS TAKING SO LONG MICROSOFT!!
So now i have to figure out how to work around this. But that is an issue for tomorrow.1
Okay. I’m upset. So the recent .NET update Microsoft put out fried SharePoint which I am currently the main point of contact for at our company. In addition, my only current projects are creating workflows.
I was publishing a workflow and got an error. I googled the error and found that it was the .NET update that caused it. Internet says to edit the web.config file for your web apps and it will be good to go. I go to our networks guy (only available supervisor) and explain what happened and ask about the recent patch and whether this could be the cause. He says that his team doesn’t actually handle the patches so I should speak with the HelpDesk lead (don’t ask).
I go to the HelpDesk lead and explain the situation, explain the solution and ask for what to do next. Keep in mind that this whole thing takes two hours because it’s Friday and everyone is out and I can’t do any of my work while I’m waiting on this. HelpDesk lead says “you have an admin account, I trust you. Go fix it” so I think uh okay.... I’m a junior and not even technically an IT person but sure. I know how to do it - but got nervous about fucking it up because our entire organization uses Sharepoint.
Nevertheless I go to my desk and look for the root directories and find that they’re on a server somewhere that I have no access to. I message the Helpdesk guy and tell him this and he says to talk to the developer supervisor. Great! He’s super nice and helpful and will totally understand! Only he’s not in. Neither is half of his team.
I go to his team and look around and find nobody but realize I may be able to catch one of the guys I know and work with in the break room. I start leaving and am stopped by a developer who is generally nice and funny. I explain the situation and he says “you... YOU need to edit a config file?” And scoffs. He demands to see what I’m talking about.
I walk him to my machine and show him what’s going on and all the research I did. I start to realize he thinks I’m overstepping and I begin to apologize and explain the details to why I was asked to do it and then I say “I really shouldn’t even be the one doing this” he says “no you should not. This isn’t getting done today. Put in a request, include your research and we will see what we can do when the supervisor gets back next week”
His tone was like I was in trouble and I know that I’m not, but it’s my goal to end up on that team and I just feel like shit about this whole situation. To top it off my boss pulled me off of two projects because of unrelated issues (and nothing to do with me) so I have basically nothing to do and I just feel very discouraged. I feel dumb and like I should have gone to the developers first. I just wanted to make it easy on everyone and do my research. I feel like I keep being put in situations above my level (I’m one of two juniors in a 16 person shop, the other one is an intern) and then “getting in trouble” for working beyond my scope.
Anyways.... fuck Microsoft6
AWS write awful docs. The .Net SQS example code has spelling mistakes, bits missing and doesn't work.
Also would be helpful if it highlighted that the .Net Core implementation is fundamentally different.
I don't want to trash-talk anyone's favorite programming language - after all, I get quite pissed if anyone rants about my favorite language, too! I'm not saying that VB .NET is a bad language. It really has its strengths, even more so for beginner devs. But is this guy serious?
I don't even particularly care for C# - mostly because I don't like Pascal Case and it's a Microsoft Original and I don't want MY source code spying on ME... But still... every single one of the points that guy tries to make is either IDE-specific, not a big deal or even an advantage in my opinion!
What bothers me the most, however, is the way he subtly tries to force his own opinion upon his readers. "It doesn’t matter if you disagree with everything else in this article: case-sensitivity alone is sufficient reason to ditch C#!" - quote end!
Real sneaky fella.11
Ladies, gentlemen and fellow Aussie ranters....
Today is the day, I finnaly admit defeat on running GMS2 on a Linux distro...
Depsite the use of multiple wine version, swapping between 32 and 64 bit installations, throwing mono in as well as attempting with .NET core, even with all of the above at once (Don't ask).
With many hours behind me and many... many... many broken installs and dead VM's, I am admitting defeat.
The war between me and wanting to use a product I paid for where ever I wanted has come to an end and I am the only casualty in this war.
*Salutes and the last post starts playing in the distance*5
MSbuild makes me want to blow my brains out.
I know it's no longer used in .NET Core and all the lucky people that don't have to deal with .NET Framework can happily move on.
But here I am, a complete idiot. Expecting MSBuild to build the exact same way from the CLI as it does if I run a build in Visual Studio. Expecting the build server to consistently produce the same result as if I built my solution locally.
Demanding meaningful earnings and error messages that don't leave me completely perplexed as to what's actually going on in the compiler.
Fuck me and fuck .NET Framework. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.8
First rant guys!
I'm a .net and PHP developer and love visual studio. I also hate windows 10 and it's stupid surprise reboots. Twice I switched to Linux mint but returned to windows because of the IDE. Been on VS (with PHP tools) for too long and nothing on Linux comes close to VS not to mention the lack of .net 4.6 (no mono) on Linux. M$ make Visual Studio 2015 cross platform!9
Best : .NET core 1.0 is publicly released
Worst : DI went over my head.
Will try to get it this year.4
The most amazing thing about my new company. Is that they let me watch courses of my choice (unless they want me to learn something they need)
So I subscribed to pluralisght and I'm watching 30-60 minutes a day and I'm learning .NET core and entity frame work. Now this sh** is amazing!
In a few months I'll reach the master level!12
So I hate politics, but I'm sure some of you will be glad to see this article about a new proposed bill to restore Net Neutrality:
Here's a peek at the current state of the service that I'm developing as a side project(plenty of time meanwhile searching for job).
It's a renting service, more automated and with more(and better, imo) search criterias. By automated I mean that I don't have to scroll through search results half backed with poor filters. You create a search, the search will iterate as soon as there is process power in the queue of the searches, and when it's done it will notify you(in different ways(communication channels) and different times, all setup by the user)
.NET Core 2 is the reference framework for the backend; HTML5,Razor, SCSS,JS for front-end.
What do you think about?

Interprocess communication with MemoryMappedFiles.
It took a while to figure out how interprocess communication works.
was handed a new .NET project (im not a C# guy). i go to spin up a windows 10 machine, i have a 20 gig SSD thinking that would be enough - Windows 10 + Visual studio is 24 gigs???? WTF!!!!2
Yes after months of writing this .NET core 3.1 API, I am still going back and rewriting the Auth flow.
I talk to a lifelong .Net Guru yesterday to get advise about JWT flow with .NET. His take in summary:
"Oh haha yeah all of these settings you kinda just copy over an forget about them over time. They change drastically between every version anyways. 2.0s approach is so different than 3.0-3.1s. "
We then proceed to spend hours trying to copy other peoples solutions and satisfy the type requirements for different services.
Guys look im trying really really hard to get into .NET. Harder then i should try. I come from .Node & php where you import a JWT library, you get the creds, check em and call on function to issue an Bearer token. You write a 5 line middleware function for getting teh claim and fetching the user into global scope and done.
This has been an ongoing nightmare and im about sick of it. I dont need a framework with an over-opinionated, ever changing way of handling auth.
OTHER FRAMEWORKS ARE SCAFFOLDING THIS SHIT FOR US ALREADY!!! ITS THE POINT OF A FRAMEWORK!! TO NOT HAVE TO REINVENT THE WHEEL!!
.NET needs to get its shit together. Most everything else about the framework is proving to be pretty rad though. Im about to get into SignalR though and im sure ill find equal frustration there.11
Today I tried to make an asp.net app and publish it to iis all without the help of Visual Studio. This is teribly difficult!
Then I had a great idea for website to store my .ppt and .doc files (and other school shit) with mongodb and tried node.js as backend. Holy shit did I really host everything all in 10 lines of js!?!?!!! Comment some great tutorials.
Welp, there goes internet freedom.
I'm all for deregulation, but not for ISPs. Not when there is no competition. Not when a lack of competition is enforced by local, state, and federal law.
Deregulation of a government-enforced monopoly is just gross cronyist malfeasance.
OK, lets again talk about net neutrallity
The FCC said they dont give a shit about the people and will not listen to them.
OK. Got it?
So, what now?
Write your ISPs about the Problem! Thats literally the only thing I can Imagine to do! But honestly, I think its still useless... It still wont help... Were all doomed6
Being an up and coming web developer I get more concerned every day about net neutrality being repealed. Who else shares my concern and how do you think it will effect web developers if it is?2
NullPointerException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.....ummm what was null?
How much longer must we wait for a language that tells you the variable name that was null?3
So I was on a .NET project for a couple of months, then went to a Angular 6 project, now I'm starting on a PHP project.
I'm just loving these past few months.
Newbie dev here starting my first full time professional gig in two weeks as a .Net developer. Any advice or tips on making the transition from student and hobbyist to professional dev?
Here's a quick distraction. Last Week Tonight's site-link to quickly leave a comment for the FCC on filing 17-108...
I'm sure you guys have plenty to say about that.
Hi all! I am an iOS developer and I've been using Firebase as my 'online storage'. I want to be a more full stack dev and creating my own APIs. I want to start to learn Java or .NET APIs (uuh an iOS dev speaking about .NET :P). Anyone that can recommend good courses or tutorials and best practices? I have been learning Java and .NET in college, but that is about 4 years sgo.. Thanks in advance!11
C#: The fact that T[,] (multi dimensional arrays) implement IEnumerable, but not IEnumerable<T>.
But one dimensional arrays do.
But you can still foreach over them.
What in the actual hell?
Now I have to write something ugly like
var bruh = values.Cast<float>();23
woah, when did amazon get a competent ui designer? seriously, did jeff bezos really cough up $20 for a good amazon design on redbubble?7
Just learnt that Stack Exchange servers are using Windows servers with IIS. Codebase written in C# (probably ASP .NET). Not sure how I feel about this.19
With a recent HAProxy update on our reverse proxy VM I decided to enable http/2, disable TLS 1.0 and drop support for non forward-secrecy ciphers.
Tested our sites in Chrome and Firefox, all was well, went to bed.
Next morning a medium-critical havock went loose. Our ERP system couldn't create tickets in our ticket system anymore, the ticket systems Outlook AddIn refused to connect, the mobile app we use to access our anti-spam appliance wouldn't connect although our internal blackboard app still connected over the same load balancer without any issues.
So i declared a 10min maintenance window and disabled HTTP/2, thinking that this was the culprit.
Nope. No dice.
Okay, i thought, enable TLS 1.0 again.
Suddenly the ticket system related stuff starts to work again.
So since both the ERP system and the AddIn run on .NET i dug through the .NET documentation and found out that for some fucking reason even in the newest .NET framework version (4.7.2) you have to explicitly enable TLS 1.1 and 1.2 or else you just get a 'socket reset' error. Why the fuck?!
Okay, now that i had the ticket system out of the way i enabled HTTP/2 and verified that everything still works.
It did, nice.
The anti-spam appliance app still did not work however, so i enabled one non-pfs cipher in the OpenSSL config and tested the app.
Behold, it worked.
I'm currently creating a ticket with them asking politely why the fuck their app has pfs-ciphers disabled.
And I thought disabling DEPRECEATED tech wouldn't be an issue... Wrong...
What's everyone's opinion on mono?
Just curious because you don't really see any released appliys taking advantage of it, almost all are just .NET...6
My name's Addison! I work as a .NET/T-SQL dev by day, moonlighting as a rustacean. I'm a big fan of Arch Linux and i3wm.5
THE CRA TO TAKE BACK US NET NEUTRALITY WILL EXPIRE IN LESS THAN 5 DAYS!!!
CLICK BELOW TO TELL CONGRESS WE'RE SICK OF THEIR SHIT!
The deadline is VERY close. We're almost out of time, but I believe we can win this!2
can't get myself to do anything productive because there is so much to do but I'm so not organised right thing because there are many things to be done. trying to draw a timetable on notion and integrate with the calendar but I'm stuck. need to study my computer science books and work on .net projects consistently while having a life outside coding. gosh, I'm stuck, I need to use my time well. I need help ughhhh4
Every c# job i see is like must also know .net, my question is, how the hell do you avoid learning .net when studying c#!?!8
I'm developing a web app, which is purely based on some commercial .NET driven API. The documentation is a 12 page MS Word file with incorrect parameters and non-existing endpoints. I think there's also a cronjob which purposely crashes their server every 15minutes. I just love getting client emails saying I need to fix my app and get my shit together.
Got a question for you all.
I'M currently doing fullstack .NET for banks, but I want to continue my studies this year, so my idea is to take the classes at night and work remotely at day.
My supervisor told me that he doesn't know if it's possible and he says that he's going to talk to the director.
In the meantime, I started searching and I found a portuguese blockchain company. It's fullstack JS/TS, Node.js API's, which I know and like, and React or Angular. They asked me for a challenge project and are saying 50% remote, nice compensation, equity and tokens (I think the compensation would be bigger than my current or future position).
Would you take this?
I'M kinda scared about going to a complete new technology.
I'd like to work with .NET in the future...16
Current project I'm working on requires that I import data from an MS Excel workbook using .NET.
No problem, I'll just use the handy OpenXML API. Works just fine. Implement my solution with no hiccups.
The user needs to have the file open at the same time though, so that they can fill in some information in the app's GUI about which columns to pull in. Uh oh.
Turns out that Windows doesn't even let you READ an Excel workbook if anyone has it open. Through the Office GUI I get the option to open it in read-only mode in this case. Through .NET though? Not on your life. Fucking IOException. No matter how I try to open it, doesn't work.
Can't even copy the fucking thing into a temp directory (which makes absolutely no fucking sense).
Only solution I've found to try and get access to the open file is to use Shadow Copy/Virtual Snapshot Service to try and trigger a backup of the file mapped to a virtual directory. Can you say overkill?
Going to try to implement that after lunch. There's a nuget package that wraps the Win32 API at least, but that requires VC++ Redist dependencies with we don't ship with currently.
This has gotten blown way out of proportion. I'm so irritated.8
I'm crying, that's just perfect! Can't stop looking at that burn :D
I fucking hate asp.net web forms. Today we implemented listboxes, so we expected them to just be a wrapper for HTML listboxes. NOPE! They are simply selects. Why they decided to hijack the name and do this, I don't know. That does explain why they don't have multiple columns like true listboxes.
So glad that for the next project, which we should start by the end of May, we'll be moving to MVC and .Net core. This shit is so stupid!3
I have to do a thing with Excel files, and I want to keep busy, so I think I'll learn F# and use .NET in that8
So on Thursday I left my first job as a Trainee Electronics Technician which i got given when i finished my last year of College, to become a .NET Web Developer this Monday. Trying to put the sadness aside from missing co-workers and be excited instead!1
as most of you are aware of my internet issue (still not working), I came to know an amazing thing.
"there are many wonderful women live in my building. some are beautiful, some are tired, some are puzzled, some are young, some are old, some are sad...."
I didnt knew this untill I got disconnected.2
I need help with learning .NET (C#) i need a project that is easy and that I can learn from. What did you guys do to learn .NET8
I decided to dive into programming by learning C#. Main reason behind it was to avoid the zillions of frameworks and technologies (which scare me) and most importantly dumb client requests. I already have a lot of xp as a designer and working for the web bizz was just UGH!
Nevertheless, I am still wondering if I should pick up some web technologies. I am planning to pick up .NET and C# design patterns next, but what then? Do you think it's smart to focus only on enterprise software development today? I don't mind developing a bigger web-based app or doing server-related stuff either. Everything but startups and developing sites for my cousin's friend's sister hair saloon.
What is the smartest way to go with C# as a starting point in terms of job opportunities?3
So I'm making a dashboard app for the TV in our IT dept. just as an accessory and convenience to show important dates and the status of our environments. They want a scrolling banner for alerts on failed deployments, or a similarly functioning notification system. The plan is to have the TV play audio when an alert is introduced. I personally hear the stereotypical piano falling from a skyscraper.. I thought it would be pretty fun to start a thread of what people "hear" when a build or deployment fails
Is ASP.NET Core a good web framework to start with. I have no experience with backend web development but I know some C#2
Fucking hell, our .net site uses a modal pop-up after the user submits data so they can explain what the did and why. Bootstrap styles it with an x in the top right, but the x doesn't do anything. I can't find where bootstrap adds it, I can't find any way to access it, it just annoys users because if they don't need to explain, they click it, and it doesn't work. Only the cancel button closes it. Where the fuck does this thing come from?3
My Linkedin feed is bombarded with .NET and C++ jobs.
I don't like C# and don't know C++.
I understand the demand for C++ but not .NET.
Every time I use C# or Powershell I feel weird and handicapped by Microstuff's prison.
Java, Python,Node.js and bash scripting feel so much better. Why there is such a demand for .NET devs?8
When you spend 2 days debugging .Net code even though you're not a .Net developer because the higher ups think everyone should be language agnostic. Never though I'd hear myself longing to go back to JS.1
*Creates a random .NET core console application on windows*
Alright, I've created this in Dropbox til I get some traction with it..
*Edits a few things, saves project and syncs files then open's project on mac later that night*
And some more progress, brilliant, save and done..
*Turns on pc next day and see's dropbox taking 80% CPU usage and %20 disk usage*
What the fuck! Ok ctrl alt delete to the rescue!
*Notification pops up saying Dropbox deleted over 20, 000 files*
Well... Aren't we off to a fucking great start .NET Core...
(Yes I know I can get all files back, done and done and can't actually 100% pin it down to .NET Core..)
Just modified some reverse shell python code, which could handle multiple clients but one at a time, to allow one command to be ran on all available connections.
I either adapted it to be a useful admin tool or the beginnings of a bot net...1
Made a simple jwt auth server with express (node.js) . Used one JWT library that took me no longer than 5 minutes to understand almost all of its functionality and therefore quickly get to work.
Started the JWT auth flow for another app in .NET core 2.0. Microsoft has a recommended JWT library with more than 20 million downloads. Sooooo complex. Every tutorial found is a 50 minute minimum read with an outrageous amount of understanding around the library to even get a JWT token generated.
I guess thats part of the reason I've gone into c# was so i could become much more of a seasoned developer that has a more low level perspective but this is ridiculous.
with the npm library its literally a generateToken method that takes your encryption type string, an object of your claims and your secret to use for signing. With the nuget library im having to do the HMAC hashing manually, utilize more then 10 classes and peace them all together.11
Maintaining a C# .Net application as a Java developer
with a 30k line auto generated soap service.
Where each service gets its own objects...2
Im learning ALOT about C# these few months because i believe diving into more strict typed languages is a requirement to be a more well seasoned dev. With my journey I am leaving a nice trail of C# complaints. This sums up my frustration with the language and set of libraries. Above is a C# websocket handling some json sent over the line. Below is a node.js snippet setting up the entire connection and handling the return. The C# snippet is a compilation of 8 different 3rd part tutorials that I pulled together to make work for me. The node snippet is straight from the packages documentation. The native node.js implementations documentation is even better than the 3rd party packages docs. I highlighted the portions of the C# code that frustrate me to no ends. Without copying and pasting from different examples that implement it in numerous different ways, how am I to know how to instantiate a buffer ? I need a result and a getBytes method. I dont need to go read RFC6455 and implement it step by step myself to make a websocket handler. I would like to think we have evolved to the point of offering simple websockets.13
Glad to see the Senate disapproves of FCC's action. Now to the House.
I don't like either party, but Net Neutrality is pretty important.1
was working on a project once where we needed a database mapping to some c# code
tasked one of our less experienced guys on it to maybe give him some experience
now I'm assuming most people here who have worked in .NET for a reasonable amount of time know about entity framework, and I did tell the guy about it.
three days after giving him that task he comes up to me smiling and says he's done
great! what did he do? he wrote the database mapping from scratch using hard coded SQL queries using lists to chain queries together in a sea of if-else statements...
let's just say the code broke down and needed last minute fixing when it was time to present it2
Async tests are seriously fucking fragile there has to be something I'm missing here this is way too unreliable4
So how does dead code from 2007 still exist in this codebase, better yet why were there three of the exact same page literally no differences lmfao. Spent a moment having confused QA guys talk to me getting me confused because they couldn't replicate the solution that had been applied to all three versions of the page.
So, for my final year project I'm tasked with creating a mobile app for iOS and Android.
A YouTuber I watch avidly decides to go with Xamarin for his next app. Cool, I think: I'll go with Xamarin for my app too (I'd like to test run the app on PCs just for fun).
Looks for Xamarin tutorials, nice, found one! Goes into VS, creates a new project. I add "Hello World" to the centre of the screen.
*F5* Build started... 5 minutes later I come back and it failed. No reason why it failed, all parentheses closed, semicolon at the end of my only line of code.
Watches YouTuber's new video, he has the same problem ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ. He adds a button, builds, build fails. Tries a second time, build succeeds. And this goes on for a couple of minutes while he's troubleshooting the problem.
Oh well. Time for hell I guess.14
For those of you .Net people out there (".Net sucks" Stallman fellators need not apply), what would a few practice .net core web apis and MVC projects cost to host on Azure? They wouldn't be touched except by me and any people who want to see my portfolio projects directly, so I think that doesn't count as time for cost, but I'll be honest and say I don't entirely get their pricing.1
Fuck .NET Core, why can't we just use mono...
Shouldn't have to deal with all this clunky shit and endless amounts of frameworks needing to be installed...
Install mono and BOOM! it works, install .NET Core, install this runtime, that runtime and ensure you published using standalone else you are going to have a cunt of a time running it but now have to deal with 100+ MB for a simple fucking console application.
5 hours work to change a simple library to use it in uwp.
Lib was in .net standard so WHY should I change it?
(It is a rename helper that automatically and manually set subtitle name to tv show episode name)
Does anyone else hate the fact you don't get intellisense when working with Umbraco as most things are dynamic?17
Converting all my side projects from C# .Net Framework to C# .Net Core (or Node.js) is a rewarding but long process.7
Any VB.Net developers found a job as C# dev.
Do you count your experience for .net as a whole? I feel if you know .net it's not a major difference between vb.net and c# it's just the syntax difference but I'm hesitant to apply for C# jobs based on my experience in vb.net. Any one with switch experience?20
Fucking dto hell...
Dear C#/.NET developers or any other developers, do you have a fucking smart approach/technique to handle the fucktons of dto classes throughout your webapi and not having to go to 5 different classes if you change some validation attributes ??
Seriously, that is the only thing I like about JS. It just does not fucking care...
EDIT: This rant came across and just fits perfectly: https://devrant.com/rants/68633812
Random recruiter viewing my linkedin profile:
"oh, this dude knows C#, I gotta send him EVERY single .net job I have"
Nah, mate, I don't know shit about .net or microsoft development in general, furthermore I actually despise developing for either windows or mac os x.
Also, take 2 extra seconds to check I don't have .NET or Microsoft development in my skills list.
.Net Dev here with a degree in graphic design. Almost 9 months into my first dev job, 85% of it has been dealing with god damn webforms. Unfortunately, sometimes it doesn't play too nice with a bootstrap / jQuery especially with code behind and when you have post backs. I never thought I would say this but fuck the front end lol at least when it come to this dumpster fire. At least I'm learning a lot but damn I can't wait to get back into an MVC project or service work.1
I'm a linux fan (not fanboy) and I just discovered I can have a Microsoft Imagine account from my school and I don't fucking know if I want to use windows to learn Azure and .NET
I quite hate Microsoft for their privacy policies and their recent approach to windows
But it would be a shame not to learn that stuff
Fuck (to make it more ranty)5
Just uploaded my latest project!
A logging library made in c#.
If anybody could take a look and let me know what you think I'd appreciate it.
Currently trying to start learning C#, to build a plugin for an ERP System called Uniconta. Something samiliar to Microsoft C5.
Been wanting to learn C# etc for a long time, and now, I suppose I found my motivation.
So, how'd you guys start? I could try to download their examples, and start manipulating. But is that the right way to go around it? :)
At this moment I only have knowledge in web dev, such as HTML, CSS, JS, PHP etc.
Thanks in advance4
Blazor server ! Who is excited ?
FMF! .NET Core's F# REPL depends on a bug. For two years the testing and building issue referenced as a reason for depending on the bug has not been resolved. Since 2016, no one has been assigned to fix the bug though the producer of the bug hates himself. Only the self-hating deserve love2
I have to work against the mainframe ancient cobolt expecting fixed length input and filler chars depending on type, there is hundreds of fields and 40 vars in a function call.... deadline tomorrow at noon.
Awh... hell no!!!
I'm about to release my first .net core API solution (that relies on multiple separate projects under the solution if that matters) with an SQL database. I've never released anything before and could use some advice.
I want to use a cloud solution like aws or azure - any guidance please? I'm trying to find as decent a solution as possible for free, or next to free, as right now it's just a first stage release with next to no features.
PS it also uses Hangfire. I really don't know enough to know if that's a factor.7
LINQ queries or stored procedures? I prefer LINQ.
My boss says, if we are using LINQ we must be lazy and stupid.
What do you'll think?8
So Microsoft released visual studio for mac, or should i say. Microsoft ripped off Xamarin Studio and changed the logo14

When Windows 10 will let me install the .NET 4.6.2 SDK and I can compile my application, but I go to run it appearently the framework isn't installed.
Ok, doesnt make any fucking sense, but sure I'll download the runtime not the SDK. I start uo the runtime installer "Error: .NET 4.6.2 is already installed".
Um no fucker it's not. Look around and Microsoft says that .NET 4.6.2 comes in the Windows 10 Anniversary update. Which I have....
Says to check the registry to see what version I have installed. I have the correct update number, but it says only .NET 4.6.0 something is installed.
I'm Angularjs and .NET developer. I'm planning to learn addition skill / tool.
1) MEAN Stack
2) React (and related)
3) ML / Data Science
Because it'd easy for me to grasp and I can easily get projects for it.
Always curious about React, because of the hype maybe. But really wanna learn. And some gap for React developers.
Tbh, I suck at Mathematics and Statistics. Why ML / DS just because it sound fascinating.
Enough with JS JS JS, what else?
Please give your suggestions :)6
When you meet a hovel of .NET developers and you can tell they haven't been appreciated since Jquery came out.
But they're the most real people you've met in ages

How will the law against net neutrality afect me? (or anyone outside the U.S.)
And... how can a law pass when 90% of people (who has a opinion) is against it?
U.S. people/gov are wird... (not all... I douth there are any Moricas here). At least If I get cancer, HIV or something like that I get free treatment... like Obama tried to do...6
Just been reading a comparison between .net core 2 and .net 4.7 it appears .net core 2 is being highly optimised giving a huge increase in performance compared to .net 4.7
I can't help but wonder how it compares to .net core 1.1
not to continually bring up net neutrality, but I'm starting to understand the stance of people who defend net neutrality. there is a very obvious con in repealing it - the "results" the FCC cites are actually experimental, and we know that title II regulations have successfully levelled the playing feild for ISPs. It just works.
The competition that would be generated after repealing T2 would incentivize companies to lower prices, if they only had a single "package", or to make the delegated sets of packages they produce affordable. it's common sense guys - If we can't afford the packages, they can't afford the business loss. Contrary to popular banter, smaller companies will not "just get pushed out" of business. Providers are going to scramble to find "the best deals" for their customers and, in the end, companies like Verizon might actually be the ones going under.
just a little thought ig1
Fuck entity framework code first! It's a pain in the ass making relationships work with code first! 😑😑6
If kinda curious about the Blazor Framework of Microsoft about the c# replacement. I'm a designer heavily concern about animation on the web, for what i have know till this day. Animation on the web was made by CSS and JS, and if c# replace js. That means all the toys libraries will be gone and we have to reinvents the wheel all over again.5
How do I convince my agency (whome has history of being anti .Net) into letting me write one of our upcoming apps in .net core? I’ve been playing with it a lot on my own stuff but need my first go on a production app. C# devs throw me some good reasons. My towns huge on .net so it’s not even like they can’t find someone later that can maintain.3
Fuck Visual Studio. Biggest cancer I have to face every goddamn day. I cannot imagine people actually pay for this piece of shit. It's like paying to get fucked in the ass. FUCK5
!Rant Now for some nice, relaxing (infuriating) reverse engineering.
At least they were kind enough to use .Net1
Microsoft certifications... worth it or not?
MCSA (web applications, universal windows platform, MCSD (app builder), etc...
Currently I am stressing myself out for these certifications and all people around me either say it is worthless or it is VERY valuable. I hate exams, it makes feel sick, is there other ways to prove that I am a good dev? (I know I know... create your own apps, participate in interesting projects, but I do not always have time and enthusiasm for that. I want to have my evenings and weekends free from programming)5
Net neutrality is tyranny disguised as freedom.
Anti-net neutrality is freedom that is wrongly perceived as greed and tyranny.
Who pushes the net neutrality agenda? The same companies who spy on you, emasculate and degenrate society, pro-big government.
Yes ISP's are monopolistic and greedy. But it can change and it will change once the market is truly free from government regulations who nurtured the monopolies in the first place. Just be patient.
Governments can't rule society forever. Freedom is stronger. Civilization moves forward to Minarchism, then to Anarchism.
Long live the free market4
Which way do you prefer?
var apples = fruits.Where(x => x is Apple).Select(x => x as Apple);
var apples = from x in fruits where x is Apple select x as Apple;11
I just spent 4 1/2h looking at ILASM, .NET Assemblies and the list of CLI instructions to get some "inspiration" for my own VM
I'd say that's a Sunday morning well spend^^
Our lead dev has convinced the board to move the new software suite forward into .Net Core 3. Much of his reasoning is sound, a mainstay of which is the cost and ease of hiring developers to actually make and maintain it.
We are going for a microservices architecture. Combined with Typescript for type safety as the code base gets bigger, I am not sure I can think of many real advantages to choosing .NET instead. It will benefit from its async I/O later too, as the plan is to build in API driven dynamic UI down the road.
He is a fierce man, and I am the junior. Wish me luck.7
So my girlfriend started working as a dev at her company. She was a technical writer and got promoted. She is now working in maintaining code from previous projects.
Now comes the questions
"how do this?"2
Does anyone know a good place to find part-time Angular or .Net jobs, to be paid hourly?
P.s something other than upwork or fiverr.7
All Hands needed on this opinion.
Working remote for a pretty cool startup thats growing substantially. Not sure about the position of the place and ive very quickly become almost like another cog in the system that could stop working for a week and probably go unnoticed.This goes for alot of the developers at this company.
The day they offered me the job though, i was told by my recruiter that he has an interview set up for me with Regal cinema 2 weeks from now. It's very large and reputable organization in my town. My responsibilities would have me over php and .net applications and several react front ends. These are the exact technologies i want to work with and the company is one ive wanted to work with for a long time. On top of that, they're offering 5,000 more than the agency job.
So the situation is Im guaranteed one job if i take it now. The job id really like I will not have an interview with for 2 more weeks. Either way I have my current position but I am torn on what to do with these options.
Theres a possibility that the agency job will be very cool and provide me with custom jobs that really better me as a programmer but its unknown to me.2
Tried to find an experienced .net dev for a small project but no-one ever responded (while the view counter was in the thousands).
I am either too bad at writing ads or 50 euros/hour is way too low for someone to even ask for some more info about the project.
Fuck me and fuck them too, the money will just go to Asia. At least those motherfuckers have the experience required and are not afraid to talk. Plus, they are cheaper.7
Spent the day trying to get an IIS website running locally.
After many dependency issues and YSODs later, I accept defeat2
My biggest regret is excessive, ignorant use of the `Shadows` keyword in a big vb.net app. That's not how you do inheritance.
It's been almost 10 years, and I still cringe every time I think about it.2
I'm in need of advice. I reckon this is no stack overflow but that's probably for the best as I wouldn't feel as comfortable posting there as I am doing it here. So, back to the question: I'm currently working with legacy code, written in .NET 2.0. This code is responsible for calling upon PEC services in order to finally create personal smart cards. I was tasked with the job of creating a repository system that would allow the program to call on the old legacy services or the new ones without any distinction. We are talking about SOAP services in both cases. The issues is: the new service definition is comprised of soap policies. This wouldn't be a problem per se, with more modern version of the framework, but with .NET 2.0? Yes, it is. It doesn't support policies and signing the body with a certificate right out of the box. How can I manage this? I feel like the only way would be letting the proxy class do its thing up until the very last moment: intercept the SOAP request before its sent and modify it according to the specifications. But I reckon this is very bad practice. Is there any other way out of this?
Thanks for anyone that would like to help. 🙂6
"A cross-platform .NET IDE based on the IntelliJ platform and ReSharper"
Today I aim to......
Get .net core running on my linode
Learn some angular
Any suggestions for either of the above.4
Those of you working with .NET, do you prefer C# casting syntax:
Or VB casting syntax:
variable as Type;3
Can anyone point me to some example of a .net project that doesn't scale because not using async await for IO?
I'm not sure how to measure impact of not doing this...3
I was installing the .NET framework so I could run DSIII, but after installing it, it would still complain and not run. So I got a different version and... still nothing. Then I tried to fucking uninstall it, but it wasn't it the installed programs, so I got an utility that was supposed to uninstall it, but then the installer said it was already installed. So I deleted to actual files manually and even then it wouldn't bloody reinstall. Except that programs that were working before, just stopped working.
At which point I just reinstalled fucking windows.3
How the does it make sense that I need .NET Framework to uninstall VS Build Tools? The installer runs, but then fails. Just delete your damned files and registry keys.2
What is all the hype around Blazor in .Net Conf,
Have not seen anything special except these boring demos and presenters and the fact that it will be based on Web Assembly. Has anyone caught anything exciting other than that!2
Halp meh, plz... I have run across a problem and I have absolutely no idea how to go about solving it...
So basically I need to decrypt a TDES encrypted Azure service bus message. Can be done in a straightforward manner in .NET Framework solution with just your regular old System.Security.Cryptography namespace methods. As per MSDN docs you'd expect it to work in a .NET Core solution as well... No, no it doesn't. Getting an exception "Padding is invalid and cannot be removed". Narrowed the cause down to just something weird and undocumented happening due to Framework <> Core....
And before someone says 'just use .NET Framework then', let me clarify that it's not a possibility. While in production it could be viable, I'm not developing on a Windows machine...
How do I go about solving this issue? Any tips and pointers?12
Hello guys, do you think i5-7200U and 8gb ram will be ok for wpf development or should I get i7-7500U and 16gb ?8
There is this ERP/MES integration project in which I am involved as a developer who helps a team of industry engineers in my company to write some scripts (in Quickscript .Net god forbids) to consume a SOAP based web service developed by the ERP maintainer team from another company.
I will just keep every stupid technical aspect I ve seen unspoken and highlight the naming convention used in the web service methods.
One of the web methods named "zzwswo" which only after consulting a bunch of pdf nomenclature docs that I realized it means the following:
"zz" seems to be a prefix for custom db tables in the ERP system.
"ws" is probably Web Service.
"wo" is Work Order.
I lost hours trying to figure out methods. I think this is why not everyone should be allowed to write code.
I have been told to brush up on my windows/.net web services stuff for an interview. Any recommendations?2
I'm looking for a college right now and I found one that has the right major for me (Game Dev), but in their recruitment paper I found this under "subject": Computer Graphics in .NET. Am I missing something or is .Net a good platform for making computer graphics?
Also if anyone knows of any college that teaches Game Dev in Poland, please let me know. (Jak na razie znalazłem tylko w Nysie, ale jeszcze szukam)2
I'm a .Net developer, what's the best way people update their applications after the initial launch?1
I'm doing my final project for apprenticeship with mvvm. I hate all the preparation I have to do before I can start the real work.
I get a simple exception because of a connection reset, can't catch it becouse it "happens in external code" urgh, fuck you .net core..
And then they call themselves developers!!
F×ck devshed.com hated working in that place. aaahhh... they sold out and are different owners since then.
Is there a way to tell NuGet Package Manager to not install/run a package when in certain environments? Just like flags on NPM.
Thanks in advance
Are there any .Net developer here?
Need help. Our application created in visual studio 2003 using .net framework 1.1 suddenly showing "Failed to load resources from file. Please check setup." error when loading a form using a dll, also created in .net framework 1.1. This is only on windows 10 build 1703. On older builds, it is working fine.
I have a backend in .net web API and myssql. I want to host this on godaddy, I uploaded the files but now I am getting a 500 Internal server error.
I have never used .net please help me if you have done this before.
Are there any .NET devs here who use MacBooks as their main dev machine who can share some feedback? I really like the design of the Mac but I'm not sure whether I will be very productive on it. Other laptops I'm considering are the Razer Blade, Dell XPS or HP Spectre x3603
Made a spelling mistake... Clicked on the word and pressed ALT + ENTER to fix it.
People who use Resharper will get this :(1
Not exactly a rant, but I'm wondering where to go next with my learning.
I'm a c# dev and I want to get more into massive, scalable, distributed application development.
I sort of want to be with the "cool kids" i.e. open source, node.js, docker, scala, you name it. I get that open source moves quickly, but I get the feeling that every new framework is a fad.
Then again there is the corporate world with shitloads of money who are invested in .net and will very soon want people who can redesign their software so that their management can use all the buzz words.
I'm thinking into get into consulting and claim my slice of pie there by designing their solutions to go on the cloud so they can throw even more money at microsoft.
Anyway, I'm doing a bit of soul searching so feel free to throw in your 2 cents1
TL;DR: Best C# and .NET accreditation courses (UK)?
I've started a new job as a .NET Software Developer. Now I have never done C# before but they want to send me on some courses to learn.
First I have to recommend what courses though. Price isn't an issue but they want me to give them a variety of courses available. Ones that are crash courses and online learning courses. I want it to be accredited so I can come away with something to show on my CV/LinkedIn.
What C# and .NET courses would you guys recommend or what course providers would you recommend (in the UK).
Thank you in advance!3

In all seriousness, if anybody knows what in the fuck is happening, I'd appreciate the help: https://stackoverflow.com/questions...4
The moment you realize the .net Framework's String.TrimEnd() method will actually modify your String prior to returning it, and there seems to be no convenient way of getting a copy without declaring a new variable...
Just wanted to get rid of excess empty lines in the log caused by trailing <CR><LF> when receiving lines of serial data:
Console.WriteLine(DateTime.Now.ToString("H:m:s.fff") + " - serial data received on " + com_port + ": " + serial_data.TrimEnd())
But suddenly the parser could not find its termination characters anymore...
Resulting in probably the most disgusting parentheses I had ever added to any code:
Console.WriteLine(DateTime.Now.ToString("H:m:s.fff") + " - serial data received on " + com_port + (": " + serial_data).TrimEnd())
Yes, I feel bad about it, but then again is VB .net and it kinda "works for me". I promise I will (try to remember to) remove these as soon as debugging is done...4
everywhere I look I read Microsoft it almost feels like the discovery (vanishing and reappearing at random) you should see what they have done to .net. You can write c# like you write js and vice versa and with the new vs, I'm a cold blooded killer 🙏3
I should probably make peace with the fact that I can't code at night. Right now, I'd like to make a new .NET MVC web app, and I'm like, "fuck, where do I start?"1
Any .Net gurus about? Got a question about testing how many open connections I have.
looking for C#/.net developers to follow on github just to follow their projects and improve myself !
cmnt and i'll follow you !9
Damn, .NET devs are really and I mean really bad at writing documentation. It is either over-engineered (anything from Microsoft) to the point you can't find shit. Or it is almost non existent and you have to study the repo and read classes, etc. (ANY .net core nuget for writing CLI apps, heck I would argue almost any nuget in general)
4 pages on github WIKI + examples that cover 20% of use cases are not a bloody documentation mate!!!
I used to be linux + any of Python/Go/JS/Ruby/Elixir guy and almost never had problems with poor documentation.
Now living in Microsoft world with .net and powershell is terrifying.3
I'm a full stack .net developer. I'm applying for a promotion and since I have xp in most fields I have to answer 25 questions with examples and lots of bla bla.1

Hey guys, any WPF developers here?
I'm having lotsa trouble getting WPF XAML data bindings to work. Disclaimer - I'm new to OOP and thhe syntax of OOP is so damn confusing I'm never sure anything is the "right" way.
The task is to create test data for certain classes and output it in WPF. The code I have is a public static class that generates test data for certain classes and stores these objects inside a static List<Object> depending on the object. I couldn't figure out any other way to store all these objects to later be able to output them.
Then I found out that you can use ObservableCollection to automate a lot of the CRUD stuff. So I tried to change the Lists to static ObservableCollections. It mostly works and I even got it to output the data in XAML by using DataGrid.ItemsSource = TestDataCreationClass.authors in the MainWindow.xaml.cs. However, I can not for the life of me figure out how to do the bind through XAML only using the ItemsSource property. No matter what I do, it cannot find the Collection.
I googled for quite a while and every example seems completely different from mine so I'm at a loss.
If you need any more info or code snippets I'd be glad to provide them.
Any kind of help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance!1
Is their a better way than ASP Identity Claims to verify permissions before accessing a page? Refreshing claims in every page load doesn’t seem to be a great solution. Thinking about some sort of permissions middleware. I need to check those IsAdmin roles before any admin area data is accessed. What techniques are you using for authorization in your code base?3

recently, I was working on a project to playback archived call recordings, and another developer was hired. part of my job is also to support a third party automation framework for customers, so I got "seconded" to support a proof of concept. the original project had now been messed up, it works, however, the functionality that made it secure has been MASSIVELY compromised for the sake of effort. I've tried to cause a stink as we have a major customer who will fail the next PCI audit. opinions on the situation. the other developer has a lot more experience, but seems to have chosen to satisfy management on deadlines over the original spec...
