Like any other language, Dockerfiles can and should be linted for updated best practices and code quality checks. In this post I will show you how to incorporate a couple of Dockerfile linters into our Secure DevOps workflow to ensure our Dockerfiles are always readable, understandable and maintainable.
The dotnet-monitor tool is an alternative to the .NET CLI diagnostic tools. In this post I’ll show you how to deploy a .NET 6 application into AWS ECS Fargate with dotnet-monitor as a sidecar container, and afterwards how you can profile an app using the dotnet-monitor HTTP API.
Profiling a .NET6 app running in a linux container with dotnet-trace, dotnet-dump, dotnet-counters, dotnet-gcdump and Visual Studio
This post contains a few practical examples showing you how to profile a .NET6 application running in a linux container using the .NET CLI diagnostic tools (dotnet-trace, dotnet-dump, dotnet-counters and dotnet-gcdump) and Visual Studio.
Getting started with AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry and distributed tracing using .NET. Part 2: Building the demo
This is a 2 part-series post. In part 2 I’ll show you how to build and configure properly a few distributed .NET apps that will send traces to the AWS OTEL Collector, and also how to analyze those traces in AWS X-Ray.
Getting started with AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry and distributed tracing using .NET. Part 1: Setting up the AWS OTEL Collector
This is a 2 part-series post. In part 1 I’ll be talking about what is the AWS OpenTelemetry Collector and how to set it up for ingesting and exporting traces to AWS X-Ray.
If you’re using containers quite probably you’re doing the build, test and analysis steps inside the Dockerfile, and setting up the SonarQube scanner when building the image can be a little more cumbersome than usual, and that’s why I wanted to write a little bit about it.
In today’s post I want to talk about how you can secure a .NET graphQL API that uses HotChocolate (https://chillicream.com/) with Azure Active Directory.
Lately I’ve been deploying a sizable amount of gRPC services to AWS ECS so I thought it might be useful to talk a little bit about some gotchas I have encountered. Some of the problems I’ll be talking about on this post are specific of the .NET implementation of gRPC and another ones are from the AWS side.
This is a 2 part-series post. In part 2 I’ll show you how to convert a few .NET apps into .NET templates, package them together in a single NuGet pack and use them as templates within Visual Studio.
This is a 2 part-series post. In part 1 I’ll be talking about a few key concepts that you should know when creating a .NET template.
In today’s post I want to show you 4 available options for deploying a .NET Core lambda with AWS CDK.
OpenTelemetry is a set of APIs, SDKs, tooling and integrations that are designed for the creation and management of telemetry data such as traces, metrics, and logs. On today’s post I’m going to show you how you can start using OTEL and distributed tracing with .NET Core.
Roslyn Analyzers are extensions that analyze source code and report violations. Some analyzers are built-into VS and some are third party ones which can be installed (like StyleCopyAnalyzers, FxCopAnalyzers, etc.). On today’s post I will show you how you can configure your custom roslyn analyzers with an .editorconfig file.
In this post I want to show you some of the different options available when you want to centrally manage NuGet versions within a solution.
What I wanted to talk in these post is how easy is to add a healthcheck endpoint in a WCF application, and how you can use it in case you want to move the application into the Cloud in the near future.
In these past few years Microsoft has kept a steady flow of new .NET Core versions, and if you have hundreds of applications in your company it’s almost impossible to keep them updated to the most recent version of the framework. If you want to enforce that everyone on your company is using the correct framework version when they create a new application you can use a Roslyn Analyzer.
