Daniel creates content about programming in general, and more specifically about C# .NET and AWS.

  • Rate Limiting is now implemented in .NET 7

.NET 7 Preview 4 is out since May 10th. It came with a very handy functionality that is well-known in system design: Rate Limiting. Rate Limiting is a mechanism that helps to control the number of requests that hit your HTTP endpoint. Its global purpose is to reject excess requests that come in when a defined threshold is reached. The good news is that rate-limiting is now built in .NET and can be added as a middleware to .NET apps. It’s great! Even if it is in preview for the moment, it is still a game-changer functionality. The excellent Nick Chapsas is talking about it on YouTube where he shares the basics. More content will be released over time as I personally believe that it will be one of the most loved functionalities in .NET very soon. Stay tuned for updates!

  • Why C# .NET?

There are  loads of frameworks out there. Why to choose one over the other can be a tricky challenge, and why to choose .NET specifically is a very common question especially from newbies.

François Bouteruche is a Senior Developer Advocate at AWS, and he shares his journey with .NET in this article. I like the personal story behind it, and I’ve learned that a framework choice depends a lot on the kind of developer who is choosing. This approach is a little bit different from what we usually hear out there and I found that diversity interesting.  

  • Getting started with .NET MAUI

.NET MAUI is a cross-platform framework for building desktop and mobile apps using C#. It is the evolution of the Xamarin framework. The framework evolves rapidly and causes great enthusiasm among developers. But, how to get started with .NET MAUI? Thanks to Microsoft, who released a series of 8 videos for beginners on YouTube. I found the lectures very well explained by James Montemagno and it can be a great starting point for newbies who want to explore .NET MAUI. You can find the whole series (in order) on the dotNET Youtube channel. Also, additional information can be found in the .NET MAUI documentation if you want to know more.

  • Microsoft Build 2022 : What is new in the .NET Ecosystem? 

The Microsoft Build 2022 is an online event that took place from March 24th to 26th this year. During these three days, amazing speakers present the latest innovations in the .NET ecosystem. A lot of topics are addressed, from programming languages updates to cloud computing, and also newer topics like artificial intelligence, machine learning and Internet of Things (IoT). Even though Microsoft products are highlighted (Power Platform, Microsoft 365, etc …), a great place is given to non-Microsoft-related products as well. If you want to see how the .NET community is innovating and to discover the power of Microsoft products (or not), Microsoft Build 2022 is definitely the place to be. If you did not attend, no problem! You can find the sessions on the event website : https://mybuild.microsoft.com/ . Enjoy!

  • .NET + AWS = Love!

When talking about cloud computing related to .NET, we obviously think about Azure. While it is true that the Azure cloud is natively tailored for .NET development, another cloud provider has made huge efforts these later years to be .NET compatible: AWS. 

AWS is more than an alternative nowadays, when it comes to cloud-based application development with .NET. C# is one of the core languages supported by AWS, and I personally think that it’s worth a try. This article published by David Pallman gathers all the AWS documentation for the .NET developer: Blogs, Youtube channels, Twitter accounts…everything is there! There is also a huge community behind .NET on AWS. As quality tools and content will be created over time, I am sure it’s the best time to explore what AWS has to offer. Happy coding!
