xD HA! Chat isn’t too lively as it’s a time to work on projects but still have a place to say hi. Social coding without the talking 😂

What are you working on @garredow

Poking around VueJS for fun. I really like it. It's a nice, refreshing break from Angular 2.

Sounds like a fun time. I’ve not poked around that one. Need to find more time to do poking around more often xD

I have the time but lack the motivation sometimes. I code all day at work, so sometimes the last thing I want to do is more when I get home. lol

Lol I feel you there @garredow

It's a good thing I really love coding or else I'd probably be tired of it by now. lol
What kind of software dev do you do?
G7470
@G7470
Jul 18 2017 23:00
I work for higher ed - I develop a web-based application that's a Student Information System. I also develop their website.
The application uses a Java-based language, and the website uses XSLT as well as C#
What do you do?

Jul 18 2017 23:05
Oh, that's really cool. I work for a local healthcare company as a software engineer building out their platform. I get to play with Angular (v2), Node, C#, .Net Core, and some other stuff. It's a lot of fun!

@G7470
Jul 18 2017 23:07
Nice! We're starting to experiment with node, grunt, and sass for the website. I haven't used .Net core yet, but that seems to be where things are heading. Is it much different than traditional C#?
Garrett
@garredow
Jul 18 2017 23:08
You still use regular C# with .Net Core. It's currently a lightweight, cross-platform version of the full .Net

Ahhh, ok - interesting. Is it recommended from MS to use it now? Initially, it wasn't recommended as it was unstable.

I haven't been paying too much attention to it until we started to use it at work, but it seems to be coming along. They have a big v2.0 release coming out in the near future.

Cool! At work I am pretty close to starting a re-implementation of the website, and using .Net core is something we are trying to figure out.
