Discussion on: C# and .NET Core Appreciation Post. The most beautiful piece of code I have ever seen... this month!

Roll with it. Read 'T-SQL Fundamentals, Third Edition' by Itzik Ben-Gan. Work through all the examples. You'll see why "SELECT" really belongs after "FROM" and "WHERE" (LINQ knows!). Find a good LINQ resource and work through more examples (LINQ to this, LINQ to that...). Don't worry about the lambda expressions underpinning LINQ syntactic sugar at this time. Microsoft has a fine offering. Visual Studio is the best IDE on the market. DOT NET "Core" is platform independent. For Web, perhaps check out (a Google framework) underpinned by TypeScript language (the "C# guy" invented TypeScript). Angular is organized, TypeScript is awesome, and it all downcompiles into the correct JavaScript for the device requesting your "stuff." There are dollar bills for your bank account on the Microsoft train. A lot of the other stuff is budget busting, shifting sand. In my experience.

I 100% agree that SQL got select wrong, and it should be at the end!

As for VS being the best IDE, I honestly find using Kotlin and IntelliJ Idea more pleasant.
