Open.CoreMDB Part 1 – Resource Services
You’ll find an embedded player for the recording at the top of this post. This video is just under two hours long, but it forms the ground work for what will become a full test drive developed piece of open source software that I’m calling Open.CoreMDB.
I originally recorded this on the July 8th 2018.
I’d been approached about (and given the idea of) creating a Configuration Management Database in .NET Core, and I thought that it seemed like the perfect project to attempt to build, in the open, as a series of videos
I mean, it can’t be that hard… right?
So I took some time to write a basic spec (which you can find here) and will be working from and evolving that spec as this series continues.
In this first video I wanted to introduce the problem, the spec, code of conduct and create the read portion
i.e. the R in CRUD
of the Resource Service and the first properties of the Resource Item – all of which is fully tested.
All work on this project will be done using GitFlow. This can be seen throughout the video, as I was working in a branch called “feature-resource-item-service” which was merged into the “development” branch after I had gone off the air.
I mentioned the following resources in this stream:
which includes a code of conduct for folks who wish to contribute
- The same repo on Code Triage
- Practical Test-Driven Development by John Calloway and Clayton Hunt
- Nkosi’s answer on Stack Overflow
which reminded me how to assert an exception in xunit
