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 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).
Necessity is the mother of invention – that’s basically why I did create a new open source project called Lockbox. Its main purpose is to provide a centralized and secured storage for the application settings that can be easily fetched via HTTP request. Sounds interesting? Then let me guide you through the most important concepts of the Lockbox.
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.
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.
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.
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.
