The Maintainers: Nicholas Blumhardt, Autofac and Serilog

Nicolas Blumhardt Last week I released a new episode of my "The Maintainers" video series. This time I talk with Nicholas Blumhardt of Autofac and Serilog fame.

His experience developing these libraries to explore new ideas is an interesting take. The video also talks about how he helps manage projects with so many sub-projects (e.g. Serilog's support for so many syncs).

I hope you enjoy it!

My New New Web Series

YouTube With the pandemic, I'm getting bored at the house. And if you know me, you know I need a project. My wife has already heard all of my stories, so I have to start recording myself.

The idea with this series is to talk about the inner world of developers. I might dig into some technology, but usually in a more general way. I'm still getting used to shooting in my office, so bear with the giant head.

I'm going to do my best to do one of these each week. If you have some things you'd like me to rant about, please comment below!

ASP.NET 5 and Bower

ps_logoAs most of you already know, I have a new course on ASP.NET 5. I’ve just released a teaser video that shows how the Bower.json editor in Visual Studio works.

The course was recently updated to use the ASP.NET Beta 8 bits. I am looking forward to the next update of ASP.NET and expect to continue to update the course all the way through the RTM.

If you haven’t used Bower before, it is a package manager for client-side projects (i.e. jQuery, Bootstrap, Angular, etc.). Visual Studio makes this easy in the new incarnation and this clip shows you how it works. This video is from the third module of the course.
