ASP.NET Core 2.2 preview – Updated routing handling

We’re making a big investment in routing starting in 2.2 to make it interoperate more seamlessly with middleware. For 2.2 this will start with us making a few changes to the routing model, and adding some minor features. In 3.0 the plan is to introduce a model where routing and middleware operate together naturally. This post will focus on the 2.2 improvements, we’ll discuss 3.0 a bit further in the future.

michaelscodingspot.com/2017/02/11/the-over-designer/
The Over Designer Have you ever encountered an over designer? An over designer is a software developer that had some life changing event and became obsessed about architecture. The result being, obsessive decoupling, endless coding of Factories, creating deep (also needless) inheritence hierarchies and various use of design patterns for no good reason.

The Shell Introduction I Wish I Had – DEV Community

So I’m writing to you, my past coding self, to get you up to speed on something important: The Shell. The future me is (moderately) wiser and wants to help. I wrote a similar guide for Git Rebasing that you (and others) found helpful. My post this time is broader, lays the groundwork for learning and understanding more about the Shell and why it matters.

The whole of WordPress compiled to .NET Core

The whole of WordPress compiled to .NET Core and a NuGet Package with PeachPie Why? Because it’s awesome. Sometimes a project comes along that is impossibly ambitious and it works. I’ve blogged a little about Peachpie, the open source PHP compiler that runs PHP under .NET Core. It’s a project hosted at www.peachpie.io.
But…why? Here’s why:
Performance: compiled code is fast and also optimized by the .NET Just-in-Time Compiler for your actual system. Additionally, the .NET performance profiler may be used to resolve bottlenecks. C# Extensibility: plugin functionality can be implemented in a separate C# project and/or PHP plugins may use .NET libraries.

How to easily extend your app using MediatR notifications

Probably the biggest question you face as a developer every single day is “where to put your code”? Should you use repositories or query classes? Should you have one class or two to represent your domain object? Should you write a new class or extend an existing one?
In short what constitutes a single responsibility and how separate should your concerns actually be?
MediatR Notifications can help with some of these thorny issues.

EPiServer edit and admin not working after upgrade to EPiServer 11.8

I have upgraded a site from EPiServer 7.5 to 11.8.
When deploying the upgraded site to the test environment the edit and admin interface stopped working (the top episerver ui menu visible but lots of js errors and no “main edit window visible” and entire admin mode 404 not found).

The problem was related to some old config for “ProtectedAddons”, i just commented the below config in web.config on test server and the edit and admin mode works again.

(comment out/remove below from web.config)

Inspiration for the solution came from here: Object reference error in initialization modules
