In this post I describe a problem that I've been asked about several times related to session state. The scenario goes something like this:
Scaffold a new ASP.NET Core application
Set a string in session state for a user, e.g. HttpContext.Session.SetString("theme", "Dark");
On the next request, try to load the value from session using HttpContext.Session.GetString("theme"); but get back null!
"Gah, this stupid framework doesn't work"
