Today I’m excited to announce a new experimental project to enable native mobile app development with Blazor: Experimental Mobile Blazor Bindings. These bindings enable developers to build native mobile apps using C# and .NET for iOS and Android using familiar web programming patterns. This means you can use the Blazor programming model and Razor syntax to define UI components and behaviors of an application. The UI components that are included are based on Xamarin.Forms native UI controls, which results in beautiful native mobile apps.

I think most of ASP.NET Core applications have authentication enabled. When writing unit tests for controllers we have one set of tests that need authenticated user and other set of tests that need anonymous user. Faking User property of controller is a little bit tricky. This blog post shows how to do it.

You’re sending an HTTP request to your ASP.NET server, and out of the blue, it returns a 500 error. Now what? The error code doesn’t say too much by itself. Did a database request fail? What was the exact database query? Was there an exception? What kind of exception? On which line of code did it happen? And what were the local variables? Wouldn’t it be great if you could see the failure as if you’re breaking on an exception while debugging in Visual Studio?

In my previous post, I had talked about how we to ported an existing repository code from Azure SQL to Amazon Aurora.
