I'm currently working on a side project as an excuse to try some of the latest code features and functionality in .NET Core. It's a small project with a couple of models and basic CRUD. The project is going to touch everything new such as ASP.NET Core 2.0 Preview, .NET Standard 2.0 Preview, Azure Storage SDK for .NET Coreetc. It was a conscious decision as I wanted to see how the latest tooling and libraries would work. The migration from MVC 5 -> ASP.NET Core project was mainly painless with a few small changes, but remember …[read more]

In this post I will explain how to solve this problem using the .NET Azure SDK and …[read more]
I'm in the process of creating a cloud-based application that needs to scale well and I'm thinking about error management and logging. There will be a follow up post about the application itself, but for now I want to focus on the logging bit. In my quest to find the right tool, I remembered reading about Serilog some time ago. I've been meaning to try Serilog but I had to find the right project/opportunity. And now I finally got it! The thing I like about Serilog is that it’s extremely easy to set up especially with its fluent …[read more]
