This article is a practical application of Wei-Meng Lee's May/June 2018 article: Understanding Blockchain: A Beginners Guide to Ethereum Smart Contract Programming (https://bit.ly/3i2fu2C). Of all the most talked about and hyped topics in technology today, blockchain is at the top of the list. Almost without exception, the terms blockchain and crypto currency are used interchangeably for the basic reason that crypto currencies are based on blockchain. But not all blockchains are crypto currencies. It follows that we can discuss and implement blockchain independently of crypto currencies and the peer-to-peer networks within which the blockchains that are central to crypto currencies reside.

In the previous post in this series, we noticed that the strongly-typed id was serialized to JSON in an unexpected way.
When you think about it, it’s not really unexpected: the strongly-typed id is a “complex” object, not a primitive type, so it makes sense that it’s serialized as an object. But it’s clearly not what we want… Let’s see how to fix that.

Primitives are the real building blocks of your class and its use is obviously inevitable. But the real problem starts when they are not used properly.
When you define Class, you define the placeholders for the data that we want to communicate using goodies of OOP (Object Oriented Programming). So, Class gets real behavior characteristics when defined with primitives like int or string or bool etc. with added methods and functions (using those primitives) per business logic defined and that’s where one gets real value out of Type/Class definition.

For the last few years, Chromebooks running Google Chrome OS have been providing an alternative to "traditional" laptops. Thanks to lots of choices, from very affordable models to high-end ones, Chromebooks are especially popular among students, who can use them for learning, completing assignments, and attending classes virtually.
While Chromebooks and Chrome OS are typically centered around the web browser, you can also enable a Linux environment that allows installing native desktop applications, including Visual Studio Code!

This post shows how an ASP.NET Core API can authorize API calls which use different access tokens from different identity providers or different access tokens from the same identity provider but created for different clients and containing different claims. The access tokens are validated using JWT Bearer authentication as well as an authorization policy which can validate the specific claims in the access tokens.
