One of the most common misconceptions about CQRS is it implies Eventual Consistency. That you must have different data sources for your commands and queries. Meaning you will have a use one data source for commands/writes and an entirely different data source for query/reads. This is simply untrue.

Leben Things! In case you don't speak Elvish, that roughly translates to "Five Things". This week I sit down with Noelle LaCharite from the Microsoft Cognitive Services team to learn how machines can translate language, perform search on unstructured data, converse like humans and more. Even better, you can use this stuff in your applications right away; no degree in multi-dimensional calculus required. This is five ways that you can infuse AI into your applications today.

ASP.NET Core SignalR is a super easy way to establish two-way communication between an ASP.NET Core app and its clients, using WebSockets, Server-Sent Events, or long polling, depending on the client’s capabilities. For instance, it can be used to send a notification to all connected clients. However, if you scale out your application to multiple server instances, it no longer works out of the box: only the clients connected to the instance that sent the notification will receive it. Microsoft has two documented solutions to this problem:

1. Say goodbye to the limited Ctrl-F way of searching your code.
2. uCalc's innovative approach to refactoring puts you in the driver's seat, letting you transform code just the way you want, with unprecedented power and ease.
The uCalc Search/Transform extension for Visual Studio takes search and refactoring to a new level.
Why search for just one thing at a time, when you can find as many things as you want simultaneously?
Gone are the days of old fashioned Ctrl-F type searches that limited you to words and phrases, or complicated regex patterns that still couldn't capture everything you wanted. Check out intuitive uCalc patterns. Just combine tokens (words/symbols) and parameters (which capture everything up to the next anchor token or delimiter).

In ASP.NET Core you can use the simple built-in IoC container or you can also plug any other more advanced IoC container like Autofac.
When plugin an external container like Autofac, you can still use ASP.NET Core methods like services.AddTransient<> or services.AddSingleton<> or you can also use the more granular methods in Autofac based on its instance scopes, which offer a larger set of possibilities.
