Discussion on: How C# asynchronous programming is different than what you think

C# is moving a bit fast that I feel sometimes it's burdensome to catch up with their latest updates.

I feel the same way about JavaScript!

As much as some of the new features that are being released (in JS, C#, CSS etc) are helpful and solves certain problems, there are some cases where I just look at it and wonder how we got here as it doesn't look easier/better than what existed.

JavaScript is a whole different story 😆

They just add all sort of keywords and features into the language just to feel "Oh, JavaScript can do that too" 😑

Ecmascript is actually the result of a large, multi-national consortium of some of the best minds in the industry. They put a lot of effort into producing the spec and provide reasons for inclusion or exclusion of features in gory detail as part of that process.

It's not the javascript of 20 years ago.
