The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
As a public service announcement. DO NOT upgrade to this particular version. I don't know what happened at google, until now they were handling it relatively well, but this update will break your projects without a fall back or restore. You have been warned.

It certainly doesn't resemble the one I live in. Funny that, as I use and love Visual Studio and SQL Server and C#/F#/.NET. And yet the fragments I watched, about Azure, AI / MI, even Visual Studio Live Share, it's all stuff I don't care about. And Nadella's keynote address was a "WTF is he going off on?" moment. A repeated moment though -- whenever he talks, I have a "WTF is he talking about" experience.
The real question is, why do you think this is A Bad Thing?
I've felt disconnected from Redmond for as long as I can remember. I've always "surfed the ebb of the wave" as far as they were concerned. Hell, we still use Visual Studio 2008 as our primary development environment, mainly to avoid the inevitable breakage that comes with upgrading.
