Recently I posted about a book I was reading where the author would just leave me behind on stuff (Reading To Learn Tech[^]).

But, this post is about an amazing book and author.

I am probably ADHD or something so I like to multitask -- when doing mundane tasks like shaving or showering.
However, I prefer not to listen to anything political -- and since almost everything is now political I decided to try listening to an audiobook of a technical book.

I wanted to learn WebAPI-related & .NET Core so I picked this book at random and it has been amazing so far:
Microservices in .NET, Second Edition 2nd Edition, by Christian Horsdal Gammelgaard (Manning publishers)[^]

Think WebAPI, MVC, .NET Core
Before you get your shorts all knotted up on Microservices, hold on, this book is really about building solutions.
It's more about WebAPI & .NET Core ASP.NET & MVC & real-world solutions.

Very Clear, Great Author
This author explains things so clearly, provides implementation & then provides explanation.
It's so good, that I can't believe it.

I was so shocked while listening to it that I was actually understanding what the author was talking about.
Explanations are so clear and the author really builds the story.
Now, that I've listened to about 1/3 of I will go back and read the book too (I'm an O'Reilly bookshelf member so it is all available to me).

Anyways, have you ever listened to a tech book? It's (can be) a lot better than you might expect.

Straw Poll

Have you ever taught anyone to code?
"Teaching" can mean from start to finish, or simply just helping someone learning to code work through a coding issue (like helping with homework or being a support tutor)
And how did it go?
