Fulfilling a requirement where we need to get a data from other sources (REST-based Web Service) and sync with on-premises (local) database. This should be done using a SQL Server Stored Procedure.

Shared frameworks have been an essential part of .NET Core since 1.0. ASP.NET Core shipped as a shared framework for the first time in 2.1. You may not have noticed if things are working smoothly, but there have been some bumps and ongoing discussion about its design. In this post, I will dive deep into the shared frameworks and talk about some common developer pitfalls.

But before we dive into ‘Fuzzlyn’ and what it does, we’re going to take a quick look at ‘compilation’ in the .NET Framework. When you write C#/VB.NET/F# code (delete as appropriate) and compile it, the compiler converts it into Intermediate Language (IL) code. The IL is then stored in a .exe or .dll, which the Common Language Runtime (CLR) reads and executes when your program is actually run. However it’s the job of the Just-in-Time (JIT) Compiler to convert the IL code into machine code.

After going over the paper and the managed implementation, I’m ready to start with the C++ implementation. I have higher hopes for this code. As I started browsing the C++ code, it occurred to me that the way the C#’s implementation handles dynamic code generation is pretty much how templates in C++ work. I wonder if this was the trigger for that.

In this post I'll discuss a technique I use occasionally to ensure that an ASP.NET Core app is able to start correctly, as part of a continuous integration (CI) build pipeline. These "smoke tests" provide an initial indication that there may be something wrong with the build, which may not be caught by other tests.

Machine Learning (ML) gets a lot of press now days and for good reason. It can be used to gain insight into areas that were difficult to tap into even a few years ago. Want to know what type of object is shown in a picture? Machine learning can tell you. Need help predicting the next big stock to buy based on historical trends? Machine learning can help out there as well. The sky is the limit! Machine Learning (and more specifically a technique for implementing it called Deep Learning (DL)) can help analyze financial information, filter spam, examine healthcare records, assess security exploits, perform face recognition, enable driver-less cars, and much more. It’s one of the key drivers moving artificial intelligence (AI) forward.
