Your First Programming Language

Almost a year ago I have started a topic in LinkedIn where I asked how old were you when you wrote your first program and what was the programming language. This post collected a lot of feedback (more that 170 comments) and had a lot of views (36k+) and finally ("one year later" meme here...) I got a time to put all the answers together and made some charts. Disclaimer: This poll and statistic is not representative and only reflect small portion of my LinkedIn network.

Make Apps Small Again. Trimming in .NET 5

Because .NET Core supports self-contained deployment - runtime and framework libraries are deployed alongside the app, so the end use doesn't have to install .NET runtime. Even though this is a great feature if you want to distribute your app to the end users, it has the downside - the size. This is why .NET team developed mechanism called assembly trimming. During the publish process ILLink (the tool that does the trimming) "walk" though the code and identify the assemblies that are used by the code and remove the rest from the result bundle.

Niall Ferguson - Civilization: The West and the Rest

Just finished another "evening" book, this time quite interesting analysis of why during the past 500 years the western civilization dominated the world and the rest eventually adopted (or in most cases are still trying) the same core principles. Niall Ferguson begins his story with a great example of ancient China. A powerful empire with an astonishing fleet that reached Africa a hundred years before Europeans started exploring the world. In the 1400s, China owned the greatest navy in the world, close to 3500 ships at its peak. Some were five times the size of the ships being built in Europe at the time.
