Every time I read a post if Matt, I am somehow aware that I am not a low level engineer but stand on the shoulders of Giants.

Every time I delve into the internals of the .NET Runtime, I am somehow aware that I don't really know that much and I marvel at the ingenuity of the Engineers who wrote the code! :-)

Especially in this post, the crazy, low-level tricks that the Profiling APIs and the Debugger have to do are amazing, for instance read 'How do Managed Breakpoints work?' https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/jmstall/2004/12/28/how-do-m...

Thanks for your work Matt!

Thanks, Matt! I feel like C# and .NET don't get enough love here on HN (and the startup world in general), and your fantastic work is rightfully changing the perception of Microsoft's core tech for the better.

Glad you liked it!

It's certainly one of my motivations to show that the .NET Runtime is a serious work of engineering.

.NET (in general) might not be to everyone taste, but it's hard to argue that it doesn't have a impressive range of features and functionality! I've been blogging about the internals for over 2 years now and there still lots more to discover!
