It’s that time again! Time for my inner grumpy old man to come out and describe all that is wrong with the development of C# as a language! Continue reading “C# 7 Features I Don’t Like”

Most of the analyses have centered on what Sharp can bring to the Stars, but I’m heartbroken by who they lost. Continue reading “Goodbye, Daley. You will be missed.”
Today, were going to take a break from the rigors of computer science and instead focus on how not to run your business.
