My Rants and Raves about technology, programming, everything else...
At my training site (Wilder Minds Training), I'm working on a new kind of course for me. I'm calling them Micro-Courses.
The idea behind these new courses is that they are short and teach one very discrete skill. My first one is SignalR!
I will probably be adding more SignalR micro-courses for it's use in different SPA networks fairly soon. If you have a course idea that you would like me to make, feel free to contact me.
The first of these articles is for Code Magazine. It's a quick overview of how Vue works and how you can use it for more than just SPAs. Check it out here:
Let me know what you think!
I had the opportunity to speak at the Atlanta Vue Meetup recently. This was a great group of people who had mostly had experience with Vue.js.
I'm so used to having to try and convince people to use Vue, that this was a fun talk to get people interested in using it in different ways than they are used to.
As promised, here are the slides and code:
I had a great time presenting to the Atlanta .NET Users' Group last night. I talked about where I think Vue.js.
I got to espouse my opinion (again) about SPA being large monoliths instead of building 'islands of functionality'. I learned a new achronym too, "Multiple Page Apps" or MPAs for this type of client-side dev.
As promised, I wanted to share the code and the slides:
If you've read my blog for a while, you might remember that I did this last year. My goals were a bit hit and miss. Some I did really well, and others I struggled. But I think that's the nature of it all.
This year I turn 50 and I feel old. When I started this job at 16, I didn't think I'd be doing it 34 years later, but here I am. And I'm still loving it. I still code almost every day, and continue to make courses. Here are some categories of my life.
The Vue team has been working hard. Much like Angular, the Vue team has a command-line interface (CLI) to help develop projects with Vue.
If all you're doing is building a SPA, the CLI can really help simplify setting up a project. But is that all you should be doing with Vue?
To start this workshop, I'm starting with my home town of Atlanta. On January 16-18th, I'm having a three day workshop to teach how to build a website using ASP.NET Core 2.2 and Vue.js.
The workshop will use the following technologies:
I was reading my newest issue of MSDN Magazine and came across Julie Lerman's great article on how to configure Logging in Entity Framework Core. While this is great information, it only covered logging Entity Framework Core from a non-ASP.NET Core project so I figured I'd explain how to do it in ASP.NET Core.
The biggest thing that is different from the way that Julie shows this is that ASP.NET Core automatically wires up the ASP.NET Core logger to the context when it injects a context into your project. So to see Entity Framework Core logging, you need to enable it your ASP.NET Core logging, not in Entity Framework Core.
First let's talk about how Logging is handled in ASP.NET Core. In your
Program.cs file, the
WebHost.CreateDefaultBuilder() automatically sets up logging:
I had the great fortune of doing a remote presentation for a user group in Saudi Arabia. I showed the basics of ASP.NET Core and I loved the questions from the audience.
In general I don't prefer to do remote talks, but with my self-imposed land-locking, I'm available for them for your group if you have a meeting coming up. So as promised, here is the code and slides:
As ASP.NET Core 2.2 is now in preview, i've been looking at some of the early features for an update to one of my Pluralsight courses. ASP.NET Core 2.2 includes a number of new features, but this is a feature I really like.
If you haven't seen the whole list of new ASP.NET Core 2.2 features (in Preview 3 as of the updating of this post), take a look at the announcement here: blogs.msdn.microsoft.com.
UPDATE: 2.2 Preview 3 Changes this behavior
