Real world example code for popular front-end and back-end frameworks

Building software applications is hard, but doing it in isolation is even harder.

And, unless you’re one of the fortunate few who work in a perfectly balanced team with just the right amount of experienced developers to lean on, you’re often left figuring all this stuff out for yourself.

But, just because you haven’t got a supportive, experienced and wise team physically on your doorstep doesn’t mean you have to re-invent all the wheels yourself!

Specifically I really want to recommend you check out the “real world” examples over at https://github.com/gothinkster/realworld.

There, they take the exact same application (a Medium clone) and show examples built in all manner of front-end and back-end frameworks.

So if you’re looking to see what a good ASP.NET Core API application looks like (or React, Angular, Vue.js or anything else you can think of)
