Building a Static File Server in ASP.NET Core RC2 with the CLI

09 Jun, 2016

The Pitch The fine folks over at Microsoft released ASP.NET Core RC2 this week which dramatically changed a lot of things under the hood and introduced the new dotnet CLI, a command line interface that works on Windows, OSX and Linux. You can find installers for your platform at dot.net. With this release, most of the major interfaces and apis are locked in and will most likely not change between now and RTM. I felt it was a good time to start digging in and learning the new platform. You can of course install the Visual Studio tooling

Dependency Could Not Be Resolved Error in Visual Studio 2015 RTM

22 Jul, 2015

Microsoft dropped the RTM (release to manufacturing) version of Visual Studio 2015 on Monday with great fanfare. I, like many other .NET developers, hopped on MSDN, downloaded their favorite flavor and installed it immediately. I was pretty happy to see that I could open my current project, compile and run without a single change to the solution or project files. There also appears to be a dramatic increase in performance of the text editors. Yay! Yesterday, I decided to play around with the shipped bits of ASP.NET vNext. Obviously still in beta phase, but I should be able to

A Non-Trivial Example of MediatR Usage

04 Jun, 2015

I have been using Jimmy Bogard's MediatR library on my current project for the last few months. I first read about the project on his blog which has a series of posts including his explaination of the benefits of using the Mediator Pattern. I took the leap and gave the library a try.

I fell into a pattern of seperating actions that change state in my system from queries of the current state, a CQRS lite kind of pattern. I also

Wiring Up Posh Git Using GitHub for Windows Installation

27 Mar, 2015

I have been using this method of wiring up posh git for a couple years now. And every time I have to setup a new box I have to go digging around to remember exactly how I set it up. So creating a post as a form of self documentation. First, install GitHub for Windows. Best option use a boxstarter script. Next best option, install it vai chocolatey with this command choco install githubforwindows. Worst case scenario, install it via the website. Next, ensure you have a PowerShell profile by running this command Test-path $profile. If that command returns false,
