The second part in our multi-post tutorial on using WebApi with Entity Framework Core. This week we'll be adding an initial database migration, adding some seed data, building a Book service, and returning book JSON data in our Book controller
The first part in our multi-post tutorial on using WebApi with Entity Framework Core. This week we'll go through the data model design, the directory structure we'll be using for out code, and what we actually hope to achieve with this project.
With so many official tooling options available, what's a developer to do? This week we go through some of the different tooling options that Microsoft have provided us for working in .NET Core and not all of them are Windows applications (shocking!)
Bundling compiled code together is done in libraries. These can be DLLs (in Windows land) or so files in Unix-like OSs. This week we look at how to build a class library in .NET Core and how to reference it in a preexisting application.
Over on the Coding Blocks Slack group, Luke Warren had suggested that I write a post about the .NET Standard. Luckily for
In this post, I take you through how to add Entity Framework Core to a .NET Core application, how the built in .NET Core Dependency Injection system works, and how to run queries against a DbSet.
Just what is .NET Core? I've not taken the time to actually describe what it is... until now, that is.
In the final week of October of 2106, Microsoft announced the release of .NET Core 1.1. In this post I go through some of the changes and design decisions behind them. It's exciting stuff, if I do say so.
A very brief introduction to unit testing in .NET Core, how it can be achieved and what the pitfalls are.
A deep dive into the files which make up the default Hello, World application. These files are created when you issue the "dotnet new" command at the terminal. NOTE: This was correct a the time of posting, but changes in the SDK have happened since, and the "dotnet new" command no longer works like that.
