Another week, another bunch of links! I think I’ll reduce the cadence from now on though, to do a little more of my own posts/videos and not have the blog almost exclusively filled with links 🙂. Articles “Writing logs to Elasticsearch with Fluentd using Serilog in ASP.NET Core” The title says it all 🙂 Nice and simple article on the subject. “Techie to tech lead: My five biggest mistakes” Interesting article on some mistakes one might make when transitioning from a technical role to a leadership one.

Have at it! Articles “I Wanna Go Fast: Why Searching Through 500M Pwned Passwords Is So Quick” Really cool post on web performance by Troy Hunt on hist Have I Been Pwned project. “On Constructor Over-injection” Can’t add much on this article, the title is self explanatory and the article is short and to the point. Videos “Data magic with the Elastic stack! - Aleksander Stensby” Cool talk on some interesting capabilities of Elastic Search and Kibana.

And we’re in for another round! Articles “What they don’t tell you about event sourcing” Nice read on some problems that might arise when using CQRS and event sourcing. “Bing.com runs on .NET Core 2.1!" Interesting to know how Bing is benefiting from .NET Core performance improvements. Even if you (and I) don’t like/use Bing, it’s still a massive project and a great way to see how .NET Core behaves at such scale.

This week, no reading, just watching 🙂 (Now that I’m looking at it closely, all the videos are from NDC Oslo 2018) Videos “Finding your service boundaries - a practical guide - Adam Ralph” Great talk on defining the service boundaries, one of the topics I find most challenging when creating a new system, but also very interesting. “Containers in Production: It’s Like Orchestrating Cats - David Ostrovsky” Cool practical talk on things to keep in mind to correctly orchestrate containers in Docker.

A couple of reads and a couple of watches. Articles “Life Beyond Distributed Transactions: An Apostate’s Implementation - A Primer” Nice series of articles (not yet finished) on implementing transactional logic in a distributed system without resorting to the traditional SQL distributed transactions. “Software Testing Anti-patterns” Excellent thorough article on testing anti-patterns, technology stack agnostic, with valuable information to make sure we get the most out of our tests.

Another week gone by (and this wasn’t a cold one over here), another bunch of links. Articles “Imaginary problems, the root of bad software” Very nice post on the problems, the real and the imaginary ones, we face on our jobs. After reading I’m pretty confident you can relate. “Pipelines - a guided tour of the new IO API in .NET, part 3” Another really nice article on .NET’s pipelines from Marc Gravell.
