Recently, I started researching tools and services for the build automation. Being a long user of TeamCity and currently Travis CI (also had some experience with Jenkins, AppVeyor and VSTS) I wanted to find out what else is there. Then I realized that there’s a build server built into BitBucket, thus I decided to give it a go.
In today’s post, I’d like to present a dozen of minimalistic samples that you can make use of within ASP.NET Core application. Starting from simple things like options, through middleware, databases and even Nginx or Docker. These samples are part of the upcoming event “Thursday with .NET” that I’ll be part of on Thursday 20.04.2017.
Hey everyone, I haven’t been asking anyone for help with developing the software for quite some time now, but well, the time is the crucial part here. I wish that the day lasted much longer than it currently is, yet, since I can’t do much about it, I want to ask you for help with contributing to the open source projects that I’ve been working on. It could be anything, like a feedback or an actual contribution (e.g. via Pull Request) and maybe you will find some of the projects interesting as there is a few of them waiting to be developed further.
Recently I’ve been doing a lot of DevOps in order to automate the continuous integration and deployment (CI & CD) of the microservices as much as possible. In this article, I’d like to share with you some of my experiences how to get started with creating your own deployment process and this is going to be the first part of the series of articles related to this process.
Another quick video tutorial from me. Here, we will focus on implementing our own “SDK” responsible for handling the Facebook Graph API using C# and .NET Core (of course you can achieve the same result on the full .NET platform).
It’s been a few months already since I’ve started working for good with distributed systems using (micro)services and asynchronous processing via service bus. Many issues and question raised and one of these was how to not lose the information about commands and events being processed and even more importantly, how to notify the user once the request has completed? I’ve had to come up with some solution that seems to be sufficient (at least for now) and I’d like to share it with you.
It’s been quite a while since I posted the latest update of the Warden project designed for monitoring the resources in general. After a lot of back-end coding and refactoring, the time has come to finally focus on the new web interface implementation. And this is where the things start to become interesting (I promise).
Choosing a service bus that meets our demands is a crucial part when developing a distributed system. There are many services to choose from like MSMQ, Azure Service Bus or RabbitMQ and even more frameworks that you can use in your projects as an additional layer of abstraction that makes your coding much easier when it comes to dealing with the specific service bus implementation. In this article, I’d like to present how to use the RabbitMQ in .NET Core with the help of really nice RawRabbit library.
I’ve eventually decided to start using the *NIX system for the software development.
Being a Windows user and the .NET developer for many years now, it might seem like a radical change, but let me tell you this – it was a great decision and here is the explanation.
