In my last two articles, Logging with .NET Core (bit.ly/1Vv3Q39) and Configuration with .NET Core (bit.ly/1OoqmkJ), I demonstrated how .NET Core functionality can be leveraged from both an ASP.NET Core project (project.json) as well as the more common .NET 4.6 C# project (*.csproj).  In other words, taking advantage of the new framework is not limited […]

April 7, 2016 / No Comment

Essential .NET – Configuration in .NET Core (MSDN)

February 4, 2016 / No Comment

C# Exception Handling

November 9, 2015 / No Comment

“C# 6.0 included two new exception handling features. First, it included support for exception conditions—the ability to provide an expression that filters out an exception from entering catch block before the stack unwinds. Second, it included async support from within a catch block, something that wasn’t possible in C# 5.0 when async was added to […]
