Localizing an ASP.Net Core web application with one resource file (per language) is not as easy as I have thought. So here I am sharing a straight forward and easy way to do just that in less than 5 minutes.

Last time I scratched the surface of creating databases and collections in Azure Cosmos using the emulator and some C# code written using .NET Core. This time I’m going to dig a bit deeper into how to query these databases and collections with C#, and show a few code snippets that I’m using to help remove cruft from my classes. I’m also going write a little about Indexing Policies and how to use them to do useful string comparison queries.

In this post, I will describe how to port a desktop application from .NET Framework to .NET Core. I picked a WinForms application as an example. Steps for WPF application are similar and I’ll describe what needs to be done different for WPF as we go. I will also show how you can keep using the WinForms designer in Visual Studio even though it is under development and is not yet available for .NET Core projects.

This is a quick post to introduce a free Azure e-book to all who does not know about this.
Today I was reading few things online and saw a link on Microsoft LinkedIn account where it was mentioned to download Azure e-book. I downloaded and after reading few pages, I found it very useful so thought to share it here.

Each time when creating an application that is using document databases like CosmosDB we are facing a challenge of estimation of its costs and later optimisation. Both tasks are not so easy to do. To solve the first one we can use cost calculator. We just need to provide main characteristics of our solution (like a number of documents, information about actions per seconds, …) and also we need to provide sample documents that will be stored in our database. After doing that we will be able to read the estimated cost of our solution

The .NET Core 3.0 Preview 1 hit the streets on December 4th at Connect() 2018 and for some of us, it’s the biggest release since 1.0. If you’re looking for new features, performance enhancements, and bug fixes for ASP.NET Core, Web API, or Entity Framework Core, let me stop you right there. Yes, 3.0 has all that, but if that’s what you’re looking for, you can find all that in 2.2, which is already ready for prime-time use.

I learnt Vue + Vuex before React. I had a feeling that Redux would be very similar to Vuex. But I soon realized that it wasn’t as straight forward as Vuex and it does things differently (though both are inspired from Flux Architecture).

It's hard picking between Serilog and NLog. Both awesome .NET logging frameworks with a rich feature set. Read through this post to make the decision.

Microsoft has recently introduced a Service Fabric Mesh service. It is a container orchestration service like Kubernetes. The name suggests that it has something common with Service Fabric. When you want to migrate a classical service, you can consider Service Fabric Mesh. However, this is not true for native Service Fabric services. Service Fabric Mesh is more about tooling automatization and hosting offerings than technological features.

TypeScript is more and more becoming a common choice to make when starting a new React project. It’s already being used on some high profile projects, such as MobX, Apollo Client, and even VS Code itself, which has amazing TypeScript support. That makes sense since both TypeScript and VS Code are made by Microsoft! Luckily it’s very easy to use now on a new create-react-app, Gatsby, or Next.js project.

Creating new .NET apps, or modernizing existing ones? If you’re following the 12-factor criteria, you’re probably keeping your configuration out of the code. That means not stashing feature flags in your web.config file, or hard-coding connection strings inside your classes. So where’s this stuff supposed to go? Environment variables are okay, but not a great choice; no version control or access restrictions. What about an off-box configuration service? Now we’re talking. Fortunately AWS, and now Microsoft Azure, offer one that’s friendly to .NET devs. I’ll show you how to create and access configurations in each cloud, and as a bonus, throw out a third option.
