As you’ve probably seen in previous posts about Akka.NET, actor model is no rocket science and is really easy and fun to start with. However entire actor model may seem like closed and hermetic ecosystem, today I’ll show you how to poke actors in way that’ll make them poke back.
Entity Framework (and other ORMs) are in general great pieces of software that makes developers lives so much easier by letting us thinking about objects when we’re working with data persisted in some underlying database. This makes development much easier than writing raw SQL queries. But some of us tend to get too comfy and… Read More »
First of three months in Get Noticed contest just passed. Some code were written, and some posts have been too. Let’s wrap this month up quickly and see what I’ve got for the foreseeable future.
One of the concepts of actor model that could be hard to grasp at the begining is fact that we will not operate on direct reference to actor instance. This can be a bit confusing before you’ll get used to it but by not using any direct references you’re sure to achieve very good level… Read More »
Yesterday I’ve writen about dynamic data masking in Azure SQL (works with SQL Server 2016 too). It is very interesting and simple feature. But can we use it with our beloved Entity Framework?
Along with Get Noticed contest I’m a bit preoccupied with other activities. One of them is preparing to take 70-473 Exam (cloud and data related stuff). Since I’m reading and using cert related stuff I could as well write about it – I’ll probably remember everything I’ll write about for rest of my life (writing about… Read More »
Let’s take a closer look at our actors, how their life looks like, what exactly they’ve been doing and what they can do. As they are basic building block of applications built on actor model it’s crucial to understand and being able to communicate with them.
In previous post I’ve explained briefly what actor model is and why it’s so fun. Today we’ll create our ActorSystem instance, learn what it is and send first messages to them. I hope it will be nice and easy start.
Actor model concept fascinated me since I’ve heard about it for the first time. It’s been on my todo list ever since and Get Noticed 2017 is great opportunity to give it a try. That’s why there is an actor responsible for almost anything in Me2.0. But, what is an actor, actor model and are benefits… Read More »
I’ve seen many posts about generics in C# lately. And while they cover basics pretty well, most of them doesn’t contain information about constraints which are things that causing generics to be really fun.
Until recently I was into ASP.NET MVC because of it’s possibility to extending, modifying and doing pretty much whatever you want with it. And while I’ve got rather proficient in plugging stuff in it’s pipeline and/or doing custom stuff like routing, binding or results, it never changed one fact about MVC – it’s big, really big. And… Read More »
I’m building my Get Noticed project from the scratch. And since 3 months is actually a very short span of time, I need compromise between doing some things fast (boring ones) and doing other things in a way that will allow me to write about it and not be ashamed to show some code afterwards. That… Read More »
Since my project will be hosted on Azure App Services I want to ensure that every pushed commit will land in cloud environment and will be available outside of my local, dev machine. As close to it’s intended, production-like environment as possible. And with Azure App Services you can achieve basic continuous delivery without taking a… Read More »
Exactly one year ago I’ve published first post on this blog. It was simple “Hello world” that were followed by some posts related to 2016 edition of Get Noticed contest and after that by some more or less technical related stuff. Since it’s first anniversary of this first, lame “Hello world” post I can’t just… Read More »
As you may already know I really, really like LINQ. One day I’ll probably join together all my posts about this incredible featureand release pretty neat compendium/one-oh-one about this great feature. But while I’m not sitting and joining every post from this blog that have word “LINQ” in it into one, big pile, let’s talk a bit about… Read More »
So I’ve got two big, uppercase acronyms in title. Kind of double catchprase and if you’re reading this, I’ve probably got your attention. And I hope to keep it so please, just don’t stop reading, at least for a while. But why would you even consider stopping reading post about REST and some kind of… Read More »
Aggregate is one of the most fun and powerful methods in LINQ. Sadly it’s also one of the most underused and “scary” ones. I hope that after reading this post you will understand Aggregate a bit more, know when to use it and won’t be afraid of doing so. So let’s have a look at MSDN.… Read More »
Some people can say 2016 was terrible year, for me it was one of the best, one of the most productive years as far as I remember. It was sort of game changer to me. So if you believe in balance in the universe, and last 12 month weren’t so good for you, you must think… Read More »
Niektórzy w tej chwili lepią pierogi, próbują nie wrócić do domu z pangą, latają za zapomnianym prezentem niczym Arnold za Turbo-Manem lub w ciepłym, przytulnym domku wieszają na choince bombki. Ja z kolei mam cały dzień dla siebie i jego część postanowiłem na napisanie krótkiego posta o tym jak możecie wykorzystać enumy jako flagi i… Read More »
W ostatnim poście opisałem i porównałem wydajność różnych sposobów wykorzystania regexów. Zdecydowanie najlepiej sprawowało się wyrażenie, które przygotowałem za pomocą metody Regex.CompileToAssembly(). Dziś omówię ją nieco dokładniej i podpowiem, jak zautomatyzować cały proces aktualizowania zebranych w oddzielnym assembly regexów. By odnaleźć się w kontekście, zachęcam do przeczytania poprzedniego posta, bo w dużej mierze kontynuuję dziś wątki,… Read More »
