Not a big list this week, as I’ve been working on my own posts most of the time. Hopefully I’m able to get them published by tomorrow. Articles “Web Architecture 101” Nice article on a typical system’s main architecture components. Maybe a given for more senior developers, but I find it an interesting quick intro for less experienced ones. Videos “GOTO 2016 • Stability Patterns & Antipatterns • Michael T.

Been reading through my saved posts on dev.to, so the source for today is mostly that. Articles “Intercept HTTP traffic exiting a docker container” Nice example on how to intercept HTTP and HTTPS requests coming from a Docker container for debugging. “Homographs, Attack!" Had already seen some quick articles on these kinds of attacks where the URL for a page is not what it looks like, but this is a really good post explaining things in more depth.

Some more reading material. Articles “Goodbye Microservices: From 100s of problem children to 1 superstar” Interesting read on an implementation of a microservice architecture that went wrong, and a come back to a monolithic approach that worked. Maybe the microservices approach was not the best one, maybe it wasn’t just well implemented or adequate for the problem at hand, but it’s an important lesson that sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t an a monolith is just fine.

This past week wasn’t great productivity wise, but I could still get some reading on two pretty interesting .NET related topics. Articles “Introducing .NET Core 2.1 Flagship Types: Span T and Memory T” Nice overview on some of the biggest additions on .NET Core 2.1, Span and Memory. Some lower level stuff that could be really important for performance improvements. “Pipelines - a guided tour of the new IO API in .

Another pair of each to wrap up the weekend. Articles “Containers - What Are They Good For? Crafting our Build Environments” Quick post on using Docker containers to create a build environment for .NET projects. “Deep Dive into Microsoft Configuration” Excellent thorough walkthrough of the configuration system used in .NET Core applications. “HTTPS Is Easy!" Don’t be one of those that says “my site doesn’t need HTTPS because of reasons”!

Another week, another round, today more videos than articles. Articles “Source Code Only NuGet Packages” Knowing I could do this would have been useful in the past… at least I know now :) Videos “Why I’m Not Leaving .NET - Mark Rendle” A tour on some features that make it working with .NET right now one of the best times it has ever been. ## ["Microservices: How To Build Systems That Survive"

Today, besides the usual articles and videos, I added a podcast into the mix. Articles “Strings Are Evil” Very cool article on massively improving the performance of a document parsing application, mainly in regard to memory allocations, and the issues working with strings carelessly in .NET can cause. “Timing vulnerabilities with CBC-mode symmetric decryption using padding” Using cryptography correctly ain’t a walk in a park. I don’t usually read much about this topic, but it’s important to at least be alert to some things, so we’re able to talk to someone who really understands the topic and we can be confident our code isn’t vulnerability ridden.

Have at it! Articles “Micro Frontends” On the same page as a video I shared on Redirect Magazine #12, this article talks about taking the microservices architecture into the frontend, so we don’t end up with a fancy microservice backend coupled with a monolithic frontend, kind of defeating the purpose of the architectural decision in the first place. “HttpClientFactory in ASP.NET Core 2.1 (Part 4) - Integrating with Polly for transient fault handling” I’ve made some posts on using Polly to improve .
