This book is really good for a number of reasons.
1. great introduction to .NET Core - I've done a little with .NET Core but this is making more of it solidify.
2. Very current - It's just been published in Sept 2017
3. I've been wanting a book on MicroServices but something that walks me through building good code examples and this has that too.
4. Learning microsservices allows me to learn some new architectural concepts.
5. The book is written really well too so it is a fast read.
6. Microservices are implemented in Docker so I'll finally wrestle with that a bit too.
Has anyone else stumbled upon this new offering? It's really quite good.
Also, here's a quote from the book which is also probably why I like the book and author's philosophy so much:
Author, Kevin Hoffman said:
However, I want to show just how small the gap is from a console “hello world” to a web-based “hello world” without using any templates or scaffolding. My opinion is that templates, scaffolding, and wizards should be useful, but if your framework requires these things then it has too high a complexity burden. One of my favorite rules of thumb is:
However inconvenient, if you cannot build your entire app with a simple text editor and command-line tools, then you’re using the wrong framework.
Yeah, that's the principle i'm really focusing on in the rather extreme statement.
I know that some people can be extreme with certain views.
It's just with the proliferation of JS libraries, package managers, CI tooling and all that, it seems like simple projects have so many technologies and libraries underneath them that it buries the project itself at times.
Of course, it is all a balance, because if a specific library gets you to the right place then it is worth it.
When I bring my work laptop back from sleep/screen saver lock, the one with every antiV and malware tool sold by man installed, Edge opens Bing and does a search on some travel destination, last week it was Iceland, this week it is the Maldives.
Has anyone else seen this behavior?
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
About a year ago, I installed some S/W and after that edge (and chrome) home pages was changed. Every time I opened a new browsing session, a tab would already be there.
Went to the internet for help and removed the software finally.
It's good now.

In fact, I hate knocking.

When I first moved to where I live now, my neighbours had 4 young children.
As of yesterday, 3 of them are married with the youngest one in college.
While I am very happy for Luke and Morgan (married yesterday), instead of seeing a 6' 4" man, in my minds eye I still see a young child with his sister putting ice cubes on their driveway to see which one melts first.
As a child, I didn't believe people when they said time flies; now, it seems to be travelling faster than the speed of light.

I think that's one of the harder things about being a parent -- the constant readjustment needed when seeing you kid. From their perspective it must be weird too as they grow up and their perception of you as a parent changes.
