We live in a day and age in which we can choose a data-store that matches the characteristics of our apps and (micro) services. Lately we’ve been looking into Redis as a high performing store for last viewed items. In this blog I’ll look show how to create a POC with the redis-cli and then implement it using .NET Core. We’ll be using the sorted set structure.
What’s the buzz all about? Well, originally it started out as a small children’s game, but now and again I see it being used to detect weak developers in job interviews (I think there are better ways to do this). The assignment has a view nice properties. In this blog I would like to look at some implementations and discuss the pro’s and con’s of each implementation.
I love how we can use appsettings.json files to configure applications in the .NET Core platform. The JSON-format feels a lot less bloated than the old XML appSettings config I used to work with. In this blog I’ll explore how to load a dictionary-style settings class as an IOption. This can be very useful when working with dependency injection.
