Azure SQL 101 – Dynamic Data Masking

By | March 27, 2017

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).

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.

Managing technical debt with NDepend 2017

By | March 2, 2017

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.

By | February 20, 2017

LINQ – don’t be afraid of Aggregate

By | January 6, 2017

Regex.CompileToAssembly() – Prekompilacja wyrażeń regularnych i zautomatyzowanie procesu

By | December 19, 2016

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 »
