A fan of the great detective are we?
In any event, I completely agree with you regarding the ASP.NET MVC environment and all the other subsequent tools that developers apply to it.
It did not encourage me to retire when I did in 2014 but I was seeing the writing on the walls.
As I believe I mentioned in my original post, most developers were actually aghast at the basis for the ASP.NET MVC paradigm as most remarked that it returned our development backwards to the 1990s and Classic ASP.
To date, this is exactly what the new Razor Pages software provides; files mixed with markup and C# code (instead of VBScript).
I cannot for the life of me understand why so many developers turned against ASP.NET WebForms when it was capable of so much.
It appears that when dealing with the younger generations in general they are no longer capable of understanding anything that is beyond their scope of perspectives. But they are sure fast to adopt whatever the technical vendors provide them.
Maybe I am getting too old but there is fight left in me yet.
