Even though the title says it’s a manager’s perspective, the post actually contains elements of functional programming in general. Good read for intro to functional programming.
This post makes argument on why functional programming is good alternative to more mainstream language. I also like how it covers basic functional programming things like pure function, immutability, etc.
Dapr is a fairly new open source project that aim to help you to build multi-cloud, platform-agnostics APIs. It has lots of features, such as state management and pub-sub. This Azure Friday video introduces the concept.
Microsoft code example to demonstrate microservices that use multilanguage and built in Azure.
In the world of microservices, tools like Postman is a must today. REST Client is Postman-like, but better. With VS Code extension and versioning in your favorite source control, this is going to be replacing my Postman.
.Net Framework 4.5.1
Entity Framework 6.2.0
You get this error when using
System.Data.Spatial features in .Net (for example: DbGeography Class or DbGeometry Class):
Spatial types and functions are not available for this provider because the assembly ‘Microsoft.SqlServer.Types’ version 10 or higher could not be found.
Possible solutions – you may need to implement all of them.
1. Install latest
Microsoft.SqlServer.Types nuget package – this will create new
SqlServerTypes folder in your project.
2. Add following code in
Application_Start() method, located in
Global.asax.cs file – change the
SqlServerTypes version to the same version as the one you installed.
"Microsoft.SqlServer.Types, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91";
The cool in-memory schema-on-read DataFrame that is widely used in Python and other machine learning platform (Apache Spark, Databricks, etc) is coming to .NET. It does remind me of `DataSet` and `DataReader`.
Very nice post by Ali, compiling from different sources and lay out how to write memory-efficient C# app.
An interesting perspective about what’s coming in 2020. From a quick glance, it looks like reasonable predictions.
Rust is on the top, followed by Go. Two modern language which popularity has been gaining a lot of momentum lately. This post explains the basic of modern programming language and benefits of languages like Rust and Go.
Online book by Brad Frost to explain the concept of atomic design. It’s a concept that mimic biological molecules and construct UI elements in a modular way for re-usability and maintainability.
A rather long and detailed post about Angular and PWA (Progressive Web App), but worth the read, especially if you haven’t heard about PWA. It covers the 101 stuff and goes on to creating PWA using Angular.
Great new offering from Azure. If you always RDP to your VM in Azure, or use a _’jump box’_, you will have a new, better, more secure way to RDP now. I really like the name too!
They are great lessons software engineers can adopt to become better. Not a technical post, but related to technical. It’s more of philosophical-type post, which is always good to know.
There’s a new kid in town, it’s called `System.Text.Json`. Michael goes over how the comparison between this new .NET Core 3 feature and other JSON libraries, including the infamous Json.NET. And yes, it cover performance test as well.
Have you ever got one of those annoying, `Could not load file or assembly or one of its dependencies` error when running .NET locally? Not only Michael explains why, but he also tell you how to resolve it. Mystery solved.
The two are often used interchangeably, but this post will explains in details what’s the difference, the techniques one use and the use cases.
This is a pretty ‘basic’ read about machine learning vs data science. But even when it’s ‘basic’, it still offers pretty deep knowledge. If you just get started on machine learning, do read this. My key takeaway is: focus more on the intuition and geometric interpretation.
Linear algebra is a bigger subject in mathematics and in this post, Khyati explains what parts of linear algebra are used in machine learning and, more importantly, how’s it being used.
With ever raising complexity of microservices and APIs, it’s important to ensure your services are up. This post explains what you need to test to do just that.
We C# devs are so used to the language that sometime we forget what NOT to do, these are the gotchas we need to pay attention to. It’s one of those ‘going-back-to-basic’ type of post, which is always useful.
Want to know what version of .NET is supported in your Azure App Service? Check this tips out. And while you there, check out hundreds of other tips as well.
Getting started on Kubernetes? This is a must-read, cover the basic building block of Kubernetes. No code involves, just the knowledge you need to understand Kubernetes.
You need to bookmark this link right now if you are building application using Azure, .NET, Microsoft Graph or Power Platform, especially if you don’t know how to start building application for your project. There are many available code samples for all kind of applications.
With the rise of .NET Core, it’s inevitable to learn about `dotnet` commands. `dotnet` commands are important just like how one would use `npm` when developing with NodeJS or Angular project. This is 10 most common `dotnet` commands.
It has become more of a requirement nowadays that a QA tester needs to know how to code. It’s no longer clicking the pages or browsing mobile app. Coding skill is even more important than ever before. However, one thing still holds true: knowing how to think is still the key.
Matt Eland discuss his open source library for feature flagging, called FeatureToggle. If you are looking for a feature flag library and haven’t used one, definitely give this one a look.
If you, like Matt Eland, have hit plateau on your C# skill because you’re so awesome, it’s time to take it to next level. This is Matt’s approach to incorporate aspect of functional programming to go to next level.
This post probably going to take you to lower level where you feel a lil bit uncomfortable. It’s informative read nonetheless. In short, they meant to solve different problem.
