Show Notes

Welcome to The Modern .NET Show! Formerly known as The .NET Core Podcast, we are the go-to podcast for all .NET developers worldwide and I am your host Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor.

In this episode, I spoke with Oren Eini about RavenDb, he shared some practical tips for databases (it's not just a case of "index all the things", who knew?), and we talk about the speed at which Modern .NET is evolving and how that could possibly put new developers off. Oren has a very unique perspective on Modern .NET's innovation speed, as he's been around since the beginning:

"I can tell you something really frightening. I started using .NET when it was before the One release, which was C# 10, which didn't have generics. And then we got generics at 2.0 and link at 3.5 and async I think in 50 or something like that. And when you realize the pace of change is amazing. Some of the things that I'm looking at right now, we have switch expressions now and pattern matching. They allow you to write very succinct code. But I think to myself, if I was trying to learn C# right now from scratch, the scope that I would have to deal with is far larger and some of those things are really complicated" — Oren Eini

So let's sit back, open up a terminal, type in dotnet new podcast and we'll dive into the core of Modern .NET.
