Frink – Numbers with units of measure

As unusual programming languages go, this one actually is pretty amazing.
It adds units of measure to the number.

“One day Alan Eliasen read a fart joke and got so mad he invented a programming language. 20 years later Frink is one of the best special purpose languages for dealing with units.“But why do we need a language just for dealing with units?” Glad you asked! Intro to Units A unit is the physical property a number represents, like distance or time. We almost always are talking about SI units, or Système international.”

Quo Vadis, MSMQ and .NET Core?

“Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) is currently not available for .NET Core. While other message queuing systems are generally preferred, many enterprise applications were based on MSMQ and this creates a problem for teams looking to migrate from .NET Framework to .NET Core or the upcoming .NET 5. But a recent pull request for Reference Source may change the situation.”

C# 9 Deep Dive: Records | Dave Brock

In the previous post of this series, Dave Brock discussed the init-only features of C# 9, which allowed us to make individual properties immutable. That works great on a case-by-case basis, but the real power in leveraging C# immutability is when we can do this for custom types. This is where records shine.

This is the second post in a five-post series on C# 9 features in-depth.
