Machine learning is changing the world. Google uses machine learning to suggest search results to users. Netflix uses it to recommend movies for you to watch. Facebook uses machine learning to suggest people you may know.
Machine learning has never been more important. At the same time, understanding machine learning is hard. The field is full of jargon. And the number of different ML algorithms grows each year.
This article will introduce you to the fundamental concepts within the field of machine learning. More specifically, we will discuss the basic concepts behind the 9 most important machine learning algorithms today.

It always begins with a single component. You could maybe define a class or functional component, but ultimately you must always be ready to render. You can have data in the form of local state(s), or functionality in form of, say, event handlers.
Your component will grow in responsibility and complexity. No component is a singleton, you learned, so you break your component down.

In this guide, we will learn how to implement Advanced Pagination in ASP.NET Core WebApi with ease. Pagination is one of the most important concepts while building RESTful APIs. You would have seen several public APIs implementing this feature for better user experience and security. We will go in detail and try to build an ASP.NET Core 3.1 WebApi that implements advanced pagination.

If you’re thinking of building or already are implementing a system using async messaging (SOA or Microservices) then you need to start thinking about what type of messaging library you want to use in front of a message broker. CAP is an Event Bus that implements the Outbox Pattern to deal with distributed transactions.

What is Microsoft Azure?
Microsoft Azure is a cloud service provider. A cloud service provider (CSPs) is a technology company that offers multiple cloud services. Azure has listed over 600 cloud service offerings, from computing to storage to databases to machine learning.
Azure is the second most popular cloud platform behind Amazon Web Services (AWS). Still, many long-lived or large tech companies are embracing both cloud platforms. This may be because Azure is able to compete on cost, niche cloud-offerings, easy integration, and developers' familiarity with Microsoft software.
Azure has three competitive advantages when compared with other cloud platforms like AWS and Google Cloud.
Advantage #1: Azure and Microsoft have invested heavily in Developer Tools
Microsoft developed the most popular code editor to date, Visual Studio Code.
They also acquired GitHub and ported its functionality directly into Azure.
Microsoft also owns Minecraft, and has used it as a tool to onboard young developers to programming and cloud computing.
Advantage #2: Microsoft Active Directory
Many companies have invested in Active Directory to control access to software and workstations. Now, they can easily extend that to the Azure cloud and not have to learn a new tool for managing access.
When you want to sell software to large companies, a general requirement for purchase is to perform Single-Sign-On with Microsoft Active Directory, and Azure has the hometown advantage here.
Advantage #3: Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
I think AWS has a better offering for ML and AI, but Azure has done a better job making its offerings more palatable to tech companies.
Azure divides their AI services into many small isolated services, and they have certifications for data-based roles at the Associate tier. This makes these roles feel more obtainable to aspiring developers.

There have been several times in my C# career where I’ve had to generate new class types at runtime. Hopefully writing about it will help others in the same situation. It also means I won’t have to look up the same StackOverflow articles again in the future! Whilst I originally did this in .NET 4.6.2, I’ve provided samples for the newer .NET Core 3.0. All code is available on my public GitHub

A perfect implementation of a Cache resides with choosing the best Caching strategy for the application. It depends on the frequency in which the data to be cached will be modified and the possibilities of data modifications from external agencies, such as worker jobs and others. In general, there are two important caching strategies or implementations which are used for building a robust caching tier for applications. In this article, let's discuss about the first caching strategy that optimizes the GETs of an API - a Lazy loading cache.

Setting up a new repository with all the right linters for the different types of code can be time consuming and tedious. So many tools and configurations to choose from and often more than one linter is needed to cover all the languages used.
The GitHub Super Linter was built out of necessity by the GitHub Services DevOps Engineering team to maintain consistency in our documentation and code while making communication and collaboration across the company a more productive experience. Now we are open sourcing that so everyone can use and improve it!
The Super Linter solves many of these requirements through automation. Some included features:
Prevent broken code from being uploaded to master branches
Help establish coding best practices across multiple languages
Build guidelines for code layout and format
Automate the process to help streamline code reviews
With these basic criteria, we should be shipping better, cleaner, and more stable code internally and to our customers and partners

A SecureTokenServer (STS) is a service that issues tokens to clients. These tokens can be used to access an API or represent an authenticated user Identity against a userstore. Using a SecureTokenServer (STS) delegates the responsibility of session management or user authentication against a variety of Identity Providers. IdentityServer4 is a popular open source library for developing a Secure Token Server for user applications that runs on the standards of OAuth2 and OpenId Connect and issues Tokens to clients for access. In this article, let's talk about configuring IdentityServer4 to secure ASP.NET Core APIs.

How to keep two different types in synchronization using roslyn analyzers

Enterprises used to be able to secure their corporate perimeters with traditional network controls and feel confident that they were keeping hackers out. However, in a mobile- and cloud-first world, in which the rate and the sophistication level of security attacks are increasing, they can no longer rely on this approach. Taking a Zero Trust approach can help to ensure optimal security without compromising end user application experiences.
Microsoft has a long history of working with customers on how to protect against a broad range of security attacks and we are one of the largest producers of threat intelligence built on the variety of data that flows through our network.
