The Registers of Rust

Why am I not terrified of AI?

What’s New in .NET 7 for Minimal APIs?

Project Management for Software Engineers

Issue #344



In regards to the replies about yesterday's question on extracting info from webpages; I know of puppeteer and selenium, I just wanted something with an API that was more like, "put your URL here and get the article content out". I don't really want to go through the process of actually figuring out the nitty-gritty of the scraping.
In other news, I'm looking for a mid-senior SvelteKit developer for like 1.5 months of full-time work. If you're interested, reply to this email and let me know.
Anyway, here's the issue (it's less technical and more philosophical today, if you don't like it, don't worry, these are very, very rare, but it's still good to mix things up a bit occasionally).

Tags: ai, philosophy

Scott Aaronson explains why he's not afraid of AI.
Some highlights:

  • Compares it to bullying nerds and worse
  • Exceptionally intelligent people generally aren't evil?
  • This article is just philosophy on a technical topic (no code!)


What’s New in .NET 7 for Minimal APIs?

Published: 10 February 2023
Tags: api, c#, dotnet, sponsored

Telerik DevCraft covers the new additions to the Minimal API in .NET 7.
Some highlights:

  • Minimal APIs are ASP.NET Core templates that arrived with .NET 6 and were very well received by the public due to their versatility and simplicity.
  • Endpoint filters, typed results, and route groups are all new features
  • Example source code for each available


Project Management for Software Engineers

Published: 8 March 2023
Tags: management

Kevin Sookocheff presents project management techniques that can be used to deliver a software project on time, on budget, and with success.
Some highlights:

  • The techniques are adapted from agile best practices and the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)
  • The five phases of project management are initiation, planning, execution, monitoring and control, and closure
  • Again, not very technical, more management based


How did I do?

* Amazing
* Articles not relevant to me
* Articles were relevant, but badly written
* Summaries told me everything I wanted to know
* I like turtles
