I agree with you, it’s not about the technicalities, it’s about the number of choices that come with something that’s almost 20 years old. It’s what people don’t know and assume, they do this off the old school ways that Microsoft has previously been known for and that they have been trying to shake for the last decade.

As you say it’s not down to Microsoft to bring in those new developers (although I’m sure they would like it). It’s down to veterans of .Net to maybe simplify down to the basic level and bring back the “Hello World” examples.

I like the 3 steps, could have gone that far but kept it at the same number as Python and Javascript.
