Hi Scott, What's the best thing about working at Microsoft in 2018? The company has seen a lot of changes in the way they handle open source lately.
Is it the good time to work for Microsoft for an open source enthusiast?
HI Scott! First of all, I am a huge fan of you, thanks for helping me in ways you directly don't know!
I have a simple question: how's your workflow? I mean, you blog, program, postcast, do talks, work at Microsoft, work with open source, and still have time for family and children. How can this be even possible? :) How you make your days so productive?
Hey Scott, thanks for the AMA!
What was the inspiration behind you writing your upcoming book, Relationship Hacks - Pragmatic Tips and Concrete Tricks for Navigating a Mixed (Geek/Normal) Marriage? 😄
How long do you think transpiling to ES5 will take to be regarded as obsolete?
😊What's the best advice you would give to a 20 years old Scott Hanselman?
Hi Scott, Thanks for the AMA. I am an avid follower of your work.
Do you think web development is going to vanish in the coming years? 😃
Do you think higher degrees like MS matter in joining a big tech company?
I am approaching 2 years as a full-stack .Net dev (with Angular 2 and Knockout front-end). What would you spend the next 2 years learning if you were me?
Even C# being a much better language still its community is small comparatively. What is your opinion why is it so?
Hey Scott, Have you some ideas for C# and WebAssembly? you think more languages will compile to wasm in the next future?
Hi Scott, is there anything you can share about the roadmap for IIS and ASP.NET running on full Framework? Will these platforms continue to get new features?
Creating Restfull services with asp.net mvc still hard and so mutch boilerplate any plane to makeit easy like Strongloop Loopback on nodejs world? still remember how it was easy with WCF RIA service (on silverlight )
Hi Scott, in your option what is the most difficult step in a open source project ?
Hi, Scott Hanselman; Could you please suggest some Best Open Source Language (Front-End, Back-End), Framework, DB, Cloud Offerings for a Video Library plus(+) Video Chat App(WebApp+MobileApp). THX. :-)
How do you see evolving of these two technologies in tomorrow Web? How will they fit each other and each within the Web?
- What's your take on Blockchain technology?
- Do you think Crypto has the potential to change a lot of things?
Why Most of the Investment Banks are not using .Net and C# for thier projects. Most recently they are moving more towards JVM and Kotlin. Also how so you see sticking to being C# and ASP.net developer will hold future.
Please, what is your view on mobile apps from .NET/Microsoft stack point of view? Do you think .NET will be a strong contender for Android/iOS mobile apps programming?
What advice would you have for convincing management of the benefits of migrating to ASP.NET Core, particularly when the company has spent the last few years completing a large ASP.NET 4.7 project?
Hello Scott, thank you for the AMA.
Would you mind giving your opinion about JS frameworks with respect to how crucial you think they are (if not why) within this ever extending ecosystem.
Where do you see the future of above JS frameworks ? Is there going to be incremental changes or re-writes that will require developers to basically start from scratch.
With ES6, came a vast number of changes, but also implicit technical details. Given time constraints, which of the new APIs you think developers should focus the most (promises etc.)?
Hi Scott, it's been more than a decade since I started following your work. Thank you so much for the inspirations and your work.
The buzz word in the industry is about machine learning and AI. There are smart developers who picked this up early. There are more and more products being powered with ML. One of the developers I spoke to believes that he would lose his job without learning the Machine Learning from ground up. What's your take on this paradigm shift and your recommendations to attack the problem for seasoned engineers.
Hi Scott, I'm a real fan of your work. I keep track of Microsoft's work in open source thanks to you.
My questions would be: What Architecture documents or videos would you recommend me to read/watch to build a future proof ASP.NET Core Web Applications. Also how easy is it to migrate an app built in Razor pages to a full MVC Application in case you want to scale later on.
What did you talk about with Richard Stallman?
Open Source or Free Software? Which one is better for society?
Does Microsoft spy on people?
Is .Net Core 2.0 GPL-compatible? Can it be added to the Debian "Main" repository ?
Have SPA frameworks killed ASP.Net Core MVC (as UI) future?
Who will patch a .Net Core vulnerability if I have an application running in .the official Net Core container in Azure?
Thanks a lot for the awesome work you do for the .Net community!
Hi Scott, Visual Studio seems to have taken the world by storm with a huge fan base (including me). Has this been a surprise for Microsoft and what can you tell us about the Road Map for VS for 2018
Hi Scott. We´re facing the processors 'meltdown' vulnerability. In some processors, is expected some about 25% less performance, after patch.
I´m worried about the performance of cloud projects that depends a bit of processing. They will be more expensive. We, consumers, could treat this as an incentive for us to containerize our softwares, and use as much as possible, serverless computing?
Its scary to think how long your face has been gracing either my book shelves (wrox asp.net 2.0 era books) or my monitor, will we be getting a hanselVR or AR experience any time soon? As someone who also works 99% of their desk time from home what do you think AR/VR will add to the remote working experience, do you think it could help with presence and more compelling meeting experience, or is video calling sufficient?
What advice do you have on submitting talks to conferences to help a talk stand out among the rest?
Especially to someone who is new(/ish) to the scene.
Thanks for doing this AMA, Scott!
What advice do you have for someone trying to get away from being a dark matter developer?
Hello sir, I have a question that every coder who is 'WOKE' would ask, how to make a break through? There are tons of coders out there, all of them know what they are doing, some know how they are doing it, and very few know why they are doing it. I wish to do something great for this wonderful community and not waste my abilities and time doing basic corporate stuff and live a causal family man life. I can take risks but I need some directions...
Hey Scott, I was really excited when Microsoft released Webmatrix and the Razor syntax. I felt comfortable again like I had with Classic ASP and built out several sites with it. Do I need to just bite the bullet and switch to RazorPages or continue to code in Razor?
Why we can just learn node and use it for all back and front end solutions?
Hi, @Scott Hanselman,
Do you think ES/JS can have much impact in (1) AI and (2) Quantic Programming. I know we are a little far from the latter but : do you think that such language can just evolve or will be dropped (in that field).
Hello, what are the real chances of ASP.NET Core adding VB.NET support in the near future?
Scott, hello from Ukraine! In my opinion, stack in Java is highly ready for set up BigData high load architecture (I mean Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, ElasticSearch and so on). DataScience's stack is mostly associated with Python and R now. When some projects need functional development - most of all they are looking for Scala, Haskell, Erlang and even Python engineers (but not F#). Could you explain, where is .NET doing better (except syntax)? How to compete with that tools?
@Me : How long do you think transpiling to ES5 will take to be regarded as obsolete?
@Scott Hanselman : No, I think we'll just shift to compiling to WASM
Great, I've been thirsty for too long. How long till that trans-compiler is ready? What is the repo so I can contribute?
