Wes is back and Mike's got a few surprises in store, including a new view on Electron, a hot take on titles, and a programming challenge for the both of them.

Plus when it's okay to lie to the compiler, what GitHub's Sponsors program means for open source, and your feedback.

Support Coder Radio


  • Coder Radio 343: Say My Functional Name — Mike breaks down the drama around nullable reference types in C# 8.0, and we debate what it means for the future of the language.
  • Coder Radio 358 Feedback — In the discussion of Marzipan and Electron I think the answer is WKWebView, which just arrived in macOS 10.10.
  • Show Content Poll — What Do You Want More of on #CoderRadio @CoderRadioShow this is your chance to give me some feedback for the next few months!
  • Why Computer Programmers Should Stop Calling Themselves Engineers — The respectability of engineering, a feature built over many decades of closely controlled, education- and apprenticeship-oriented certification, becomes reinterpreted as a fast-and-loose commitment to craftwork as business.
  • About GitHub Sponsors — Anyone with a GitHub account can sponsor anyone with a sponsored developer profile through a recurring monthly payment. You can choose from multiple sponsorship tiers, with monthly payment amounts and benefits that are set by the sponsored developer.
  • Lying to the compiler | Jon Skeet's coding blog — I’m lying to the compiler to get it to stop it emitting a warning. The reason is that in the case where the value is null, it won’t matter that it’s null.
  • Programming Language Tourism | Bushido Codes — I am attracted to this book precisely because it is impractical. You don’t gain mastery of any programming languages. Rather, you get the chance to explore and complete a series of coding katas to expand your mind about the art of programming.
  • Seven Languages in Seven Weeks: A Pragmatic Guide to Learning Programming Languages by Bruce A. Tate | The Pragmatic Bookshelf — You should learn a programming language every year, as recommended by The Pragmatic Programmer. But if one per year is good, how about Seven Languages in Seven Weeks? In this book you’ll get a hands-on tour of Clojure, Haskell, Io, Prolog, Scala, Erlang, and Ruby.
  • Uno Platform — The only platform for building native mobile, desktop and WebAssembly with C#, XAML from single codebase. Open source and professionally supported.
  • Uno.QuickStart — This repository is a basic sample for an Uno application which cross-targets UWP, iOS, Android and WebAssembly.
