Microservices, here I come

It’s been quite a while since I’ve started gathering some knowledge about the microservices architectural pattern that’s been on a hype recently. After reading many articles, some books like Microservices in .NET Core and talking with smart guys in the Devs PL Slack channel, I’ve eventually decided that the time has come to try to make the microservices happen in the real world project. That’s the beginning of my journey into the distributed programming and architecture, so please keep that in mind while reading this newbie’s post and remember I’d be more than happy to hear your opinions and feedback about the approach that I’m about to present.

Warden 1.3.0 released

It’s been 2 months since the latest version of the Warden has been released as the NuGet packages. Although our focus (yes, I’m not the only one person anymore working on this project) has moved towards the development of so-called stack (brand new API, Website, Microservices etc.) I’m still actively developing the core library in order to make it even more useful than before.

One-time secured API requests

Nowadays, the HTTP APIs act as gateways for petabytes of data and some chunk of it might actually require enhanced access rules. For example, you could create a link that allows the user to download the file only once, and within such link you would find a token.
I was in a need of creating such solution for my open source project Warden – a specialized, one-time link that can be used fetch the configuration object from the API.
It turned out to be fairly straightforward to implement the most basic version of such behavior.

Should you work remotely?

Software developers (and not just them) quite often believe that remote work is one of the best things that can happen during their career. Sitting at home or even better, laying on the beach with a laptop on your knees, while drinking some fancy beverage and of course coding from time to time (you’re not at the office anymore, therefore your boss ain’t gonna observe what are you actually doing) pictures like a some kind of dream. But is it really like this?

Warden Spawn first glimpse

In case you’re not familiar with the Warden project that I’ve been working for the last few months, I strongly recommend you to take a look, as you may find this tool especially useful for monitoring your infrastructure and resources. So what is the Warden Spawn?
It’s a brand new repository within the Warden Stack that will let you configure the instance of the Warden monitoring application using the human readable configuration files – and that’s just the beginning!

Simple validation with validators

There are many ways to perform a validation of our models living within the system.
Whether there’s an incoming request from the user who would like to create an account or there’s a need to ensure about the correct amount of money in a bank transaction, the validation process should always (I really mean that) take place. In today’s post, I’d like to present one of the possible solutions that might help you validate your entities.

Don’t miss the .NET Developer Days

Although I’m not a big fan of the Autumn (usually a cold weather, rain, not too enjoyable environment to ride a motorcycle and so on), there’s at least one nice thing about this part of the year – a lot of great IT conferences. And one of such is the .NET Developer Days – probably the biggest conference related to the .NET technologies in the whole eastern part of the Europe.
