As you know, ASP.NET comes in three distinct flavors. One is not better than another, however which one you use will depend primarily on your ultimate application goals. And with any web app, you may find yourself in need of components or controls to provide a modern UI. Without a doubt, across all frameworks the most popular component is the DataGrid. Let’s explore the ASP.NET AJAX, MVC and Core DataGrids built by the Telerik team at Progress.

A little over 4 years ago Microsoft announced that they were open sourcing large parts of the .NET framework and as this slide from New Features in .NET Core and ASP.NET Core 2.1 shows, the community has been contributing in a significant way:

A string data type is one of the fundamental data types, along with numeric (int, long, double) and logical (Boolean) ones. You can hardly imagine at least one useful program that does not utilize this type.
In this article author considered the StringBuilder class in detail.

The performance of code is always something that is very important. Even more important if your back-end apps are processing tens of thousands of requests per second. In this session I will reveal the do’s and don’ts when it comes to improving code performance. Some code I will show can be up to 98% faster! Reducing memory that your app uses is also very important and will be discussed in detail. The demos in this session will work with the .NET Framework and .NET Core.

I am humble to be a part of the 2nd Annual C# Advent Calendar. Thank you to everyone who helped put it together and contributed. My blog post is hopefully a fun one not to be taken too seriously. I have been a developer for over 10 years, and I am always looking at new ways to be more productive. May I present you with 6 tips that I have started to adopt that I think have increased my developer skills 1000% (YMMV).

I’ve previously done posts on how to setup both .NET Core 2.1 and .NET Core 2.2. The reason for these posts was because it was still a little shaky exactly which version of the SDK you needed to actually build for these platforms. e.x. If you had .NET Core SDK 2.1, it didn’t actually mean you could build .NET Core 2.1 projects (How infuriating is that?!).
But things have gotten better and now it’s usually just a matter of installing the latest SDK and away you go, so there isn’t really much I could normally write for each version bump. However! .NET Core 3 includes a couple of really important updates that I want to talk about in the future. Windows Forms/WPF development on top of .NET Core, and C# 8. Because of this, I wanted to have a post all written up on setting up your machine for .NET Core 3 development while things are in preview so I don’t have to repeat myself every future post!
