Tools preparation — Visual Studio vs my stack choice

The more the merier?

As for me, I am currently using four different development setups — two on notebooks (one with Win10/Fedora GNU/Linux combination, second with only Fedora) and two PCs (Win10/Fedora & only Win10 this time). As most of my projects are mostly .NET focused that would imply that on one notebook I cannot do any of my projects. Fortunately .NET Core happened.

.NET and Linux/Git cooperation

Now, as long as I use .NET Core as my base for C#-related programming everything should go as expected. Unless you take into consideration some issues with .NET Core support on Fedora, but based on my experience it can change from one dnf update to another. But then another issue emerges with Visual Studio Code (I still cannot bring myself to love that little monster). Probably it is finally time to use a JetBrains Rider 30 days trial for my own purposes and then consider buying the license for myself.

Where should I start?

As during this weekend I was at my parents house where I have only Windows 10, I wanted to start preparing everything for next projects (new version of my website, and two other projects using Angular/Android/ASP.NET WebAPI2). But as those projects were supposed to be a little more private project and I didn’t want to buy GitHub Developer Plan I needed my own private repo once more. So I figured out that running GitLab again would be a good start for me (but it is still in TODO’s).
