Goals for this experiment: HTTP calls that route to /api/… (the API) should return errors in the Problem Details JSON format. We should be able to map specific exceptions to specific HTTP status codes, and control the data returned. When in developer mode, errors include full exception details When not in developer mode, exception details […]
At work, we’re full steam ahead with .NET Core 3 and, thusly, nullable reference types. And we’ve come to realize that we need some kind of policy to dictate how nullable reference types will affect our code. It’s not just a matter of turning the feature on — you have to make careful decisions about […]
9/30/2019 4:27:40 PM UPDATE: Apparently, things changed since .NET Core 3 Preview 5 which is when I wrote this post. I’ll update the post as soon as I make sense of all my unit tests that are failing since updating to .NET Core 3 RTM. Suppose we have an entity A that has a direct, […]
The idea My goal with this experiment was to set up a Razor page that was generated from HtmlWebpackPlugin in ASP.NET Core 3. In other words, I want webpack to generate my controller view (.cshtml file) because it has a better understanding of what the client code should look like. At the same time, I […]
Microsoft not so recently added support for publishing Visual Studio extensions to the marketplace via a command line interface called vsixpublisher. It’s no coincidence they tweeted me upon releasing the feature, as I’d been pestering them for a very long time to make it happen. The walk-through I linked to will get you going, but […]
When ASP.NET Core 2.1 came out, there’s was a relatively brief announcement about new support for “Problem Details” (RFC 7807). In this release we added support for RFC 7808 – Problem Details for HTTP APIs as a standardized format for returning machine readable error responses from HTTP APIs. If you just want a better explanation of problem […]
Who would have thought I’d love a $500 Chromebook as much as I love my $4000 Dell M6800 (32GB RAM, 1.5TB SSD, I7)? I’ve been so productive over the past four days of ownership that I’m honestly pretty frustrated I didn’t fork over the money for this thing earlier.
I found it useful this year to take some notes as I skimmed through the always interesting Stack Overflow developer survey results. Here’s what I came out with this year:
I dislike titles. Keep reading to find out why.
Funny you should ask – I’m known for having a strong distaste for the “full-stack developer” moniker, and I’ve started many a friendly debate on the subject.
