Unfortunately I was using this newfangled keyword await and this new class no-one uses in the company: Task.
Sometimes people refuses to understand something simply because it doesn't look enough like copy paste from some other part of the application. That is unfortunate when your challenge is to simplify code that is, from everybody's agreement, too much spaghetti like....
Just an other pointless piece of medium blog spam, just on an other site than usual.
Completely empty of content, just participating in the Global Software Engineering Circle Jerk by regurgitating some old quotes.
These ideas are repeated at least once an hour by someone else who thinks he's so clever for agreeing with them. Someone, somewhere, is blogging about it right now, possibly hoping to score some "agrees with popular idea"-points in the echo chamber that software engineering has become. "Code is meant for people", "code is communication", "write as if the next maintainer kills people who write sh*tty code", "write dumb code", "don't be clever", "in fact, don't write code, create solutions". These things have gone way past the "worth talking about" stage, past the meme stage even, and are now well into the circle-jerk and ironic-meme stage.
