2016 Retrospective

A bit late, but it’s time to look back on 2016, as well as forward to 2017. What was, what is, what hopefully will be.

I wanted to do a retrospective style post about this. So I will start by going over 2016 and what I did during it, following up with what I want to stop doing, continue doing, and finally start doing in 2017.


Picks of the month - December 2016

Welcome to Picks of the month, where I share a few things I have found useful the last month.

It can be anything from blog posts and software tools to books and techniques.

.NET Core for your Web API's?

I got the opportunity to speak at a local .NET meetup group recently, and I figured that as the .NET n00b that I am, it would be a great learning experience on many levels.

The premise of the talk was to find out if .NET Core could be a good solution for creating Web API’s for the modern web stack. More precisely, could ASP.NET Core be used just as easily as for instance Node to create RESTful API’s?
