Webinar – Background Tasks Without a Separate Service: Hangfire for ASP.NET

Join us Thursday, February 13, 2020, 16:00 – 17:00 CET (10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EST or check other timezones) for our free live webinar, Background Tasks Without a Separate Service: Hangfire for ASP.NET, with Matthew D. Groves.

Register now!

If you’re a web developer, eventually you’ll need to do some background processing. This has often meant running separate daemons, services, or Cron jobs, potentially complicating your integration and deployment. With Hangfire, you can create background tasks that run right inside the same .​NET or .​NET Core application. Hangfire background tasks can scale easily to multiple servers and can use a variety of durable storage options. You even get a monitoring UI right out of the box.

In this session, we’ll look at the basics of setting up Hangfire, and how to perform fire-and-forget, delayed, recurring, and continuations of background tasks. We’ll also look at possible gotchas: debugging, failed jobs, cloud deployment.

File bug and feature reports effectively and easily

This may seem basic to some, but a significant number of bug reports are difficult for the product developers to understand, because they are missing information, are vague or poorly written. Some users report problems with software but leave out important, large, details. Others might not like certain features, though those features are error free, yet report opinions as bugs.

Often, people are reluctant to report bugs/issues because they simply aren’t sure if what they’re experiencing is a feature, user error, bug, or if the product is supposed to work that way. This happens to everyone from time to time.

There’s a lot of things that show up in an issue tracker that isn’t a bug or a feature. This post is for those who want to enhance the clarity of their bug reports, so product teams can implement those cool shiny features/fixes in a timely manner. Continue reading
