This is a quick post to give you some feedback about an experiment I just made with the Scriban Text Templating Library to add support for async/await automatically from the existing synchronous code, all of this done by using Roslyn.
If you have an existing code base that works beautifully in a synchronous manner, but you would like also to provide a path for async/await patterns, you don’t want to rewrite your entire code base to the async/await pattern, or to drop synchronous code for async/await only. It would either be a huge burden to maintain two code paths doing almost the same thing, or the use async/await only would actually perform significantly worse than the synchronous version, even if you are using the recently introduced ValueTask<T>

GraphQL, tracked by its most popular client library Apollo, continues to explode in popularity. We think it’s going to be a technical force to reckon with in 2019 … You’ll need to learn GraphQL.
But learning is hard because most GraphQL tutorials use simplistic examples to teach its capabilities. When it comes to building real applications, we run into complexities that these tutorials do not address. In this series, we’ll look at GraphQL concepts using a realistic book domain that has 3 entities and 2 relationships. It’s usually the relationships that cause us heartburn, so we will tackle them head on.

This post is about how to write a .NET application to move workitems from another source (e.g. JIRA, Excel etc) into Azure Boards in Azure DevOps, and a Nuget package I’ve built to hopefully make it a bit easier for anyone else doing this as well.

These 5 principles were introduced by Robert C. Martin (Uncle Bob), in his 2000 paper Design Principles and Design Patterns.
The actual SOLID acronym was, however, identified later by Michael Feathers.
