Today, I was struggling with the idea of so-called partial updates. Imagine the following scenario, which is actually a quite common one. You’d like to update some resource in your HTTP API, for example, the product object. However, such entity may contain a lot of properties, tens or even hundreds, and you want to change only its name or a few more things as well (doesn’t really matter). And that’s where JSON Patch comes in really handy.
Welcome to the final, twenty-fourth episode of my course “Becoming a software developer” in which we will talk about the idea behind the distributed systems and microservices.
To this particular episode, the source code can be found here.
It’s been almost a year since we – the members of the Noordwind teal organization started working on our own, fully open sourced project named Collectively, being the platform for the citizens that would help them report and discuss about things that are important for their community and environment. On the 15th of September, there will be a special event (including press conference) held in Kraków related to our platform as well, so please feel already invited. And now, let me introduce what the Collectively is all about.
Welcome to the twenty-third episode of my course “Becoming a software developer” in which we will focus on the vast topic of DevOps which is all about building, testing and deploying the application. And we will use Docker to help with the overall process.
Recently, I was struggling with the SSO authentication. At first I did pick up JSON Web Token which of course is a legitimate option, however, I was forced to share the secret key between different parties, as I decided to use HMAC. Not so long ago I decided to switch to the RSA instead and I’d like to present you both solutions using ASP.NET Core.
Welcome to the twenty-second episode of my course “Becoming a software developer” in which we will use SQL Server database along with Entity Framework Core library.
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.
Since ASP.NET Core became a truly cross-platform framework, we’re free to use other environments such as Linux in order to host our applications. This is a great opportunity not only to reduce the possible licensing costs but also to try out a new environment. In the video tutorial below, I’ll show you how to build a Docker image using ASP.NET Core, publish it to the Virtual Machine running in the Digital Ocean and use Nginx to expose the app to the world.
Welcome to the twenty episode of my course “Becoming a software developer” in which we will implement our custom “handler” that will be responsible for executing the given methods, dealing with exceptions etc.
