Over the years we’ve seen .NET mature and change since v1. We’ve seen server technologies mature in many ways. Things we did yesterday don’t necessarily work the same way today. One of those things that recently struck me was how request timeouts work in IIS. If like me, you just assumed they worked the same in .NET Core then I invite you to join me on this journey. Let’s explore how to make ASP.NET Core request timeouts work properly with IIS in-process hosting mode.
I recently wrote about implementing Windows Authentication with React and .NET Core. Given the length of that post, I found it necessary to keep it bare bones. Today we’re going to talk about expanding our Windows Authentication in NET Core by adding role-based security.
I’ve been using Microsoft .NET for a long time. I started my programming journey learning C# on .NET 1.0 right after it’s initial release. In that time I have only experienced a breaking change twice. Once with WCF configuration in my app.config, and recently with the JSON serialization (or deserialization, as it were). For those upgrading a .NET Core 2.x application to .NET Core 3.x, you’ll want to be aware of some changes in the defaults. Today let’s talk about .NET Core and how it handles JSON serialization (and deserialization).
There are a lot of options out in the wild to add authentication to your application. While OAuth is among the most common, it isn’t your only option. Today I’ll show you how to accomplish Windows Authentication with React and .NET Core in a bare bones fashion.
According to OpenAPI 3.0 it isn’t possible. But what if you really want it to be? Do you have to just settle and allow your Swagger documentation to be wrong? I’m here to show you how to make optional route parameters with Swagger and ASP.NET Core.
Software development has been around for a while. As technology advances so does the need to establish patterns and principles for healthy application development. We know one of those patterns as SOLID. The “D” represents Dependency Inversion Principle (DIP) which is our topic for today.
Unit testing is the base level of the testing pyramid and thus a vital cornerstone of effective software development. In order to effectively unit test your code you should make use of SOLID design principles and mocking frameworks. That said, it isn’t always easy to accomplish such as mocking IQueryable Extensions.
Software engineering, like other trades, is something that can be done in many ways. Throughout the years people have established patterns and practices to help craft good software. One set of design principles we’ve been discussing is SOLID. Robert C. Martin coded the Interface Segregation Principle (ISP) which “I” represents.
Modern software development is complex. New technologies emerge at a breakneck pace. Best practices, patterns, recommendations, and samples are a dime a dozen. Any team larger than one is faced with how to address differences in style, knowledge, and discipline. Perhaps one of the most important tools in your arsenal here is an an effective code review. Let’s look today at some ideas on how to code review effectively.
Software engineering principles and patterns help us craft good clean software. One such pattern is an acronym we know as SOLID. “L” represents the Liskov Substitution Principle (LSP) which was coined by Barbara Liskov in 1987. Today I focus on Liskov Substitution Principle and how we apply it in modern application development.
