    BFF and Minimals APIs get Darker - .NET 138

    BFF and Minimals APIs get Darker - .NET 138

    In this episode we dig into a few technologies that can be used together to great effect. We have discussed Backend for Frontend (BFF) before but in this episode the focus is a bit different. As it turns out, an awesome acronym like BFF gets reused. Setting up a BFF works well with the new minimal APIs that were included in .NET 6. Then we tie everything together with Darker, which is similar to MediatR, but with minimal configuration and features built for BFFs. We had a lot of fun discussing this tech stack with Jonny Olliff-Lee and hope you have just as much fun listening to it. In the episode we ask our listeners to help us with the best way to say BFF. Listen to the episode and let us know on Twitter at @dotnet_Podcast.

    Tools To Get Rid Of Your Code Smells - .NET 137

    Diyaz Yakubov comes on the show this week to talk about a few tools he's using to make his life easier at work. We talk about NDepend - a code analyser that you can use on your IDE or CI/CD pipeline to give you recommendations on your code structure and then we move onto C4Model - a new graphical notation language and SharpLab - a neat little online code playground that can convert your code to IL or ASM.

    Participating in the .NET Community - .NET 136

    Jakub Chodounsky from the C# Digest newsletter joins us this week. We talk about why he started the mailing list and how he's managed to build up a subscriber base of over 24k. We shared why he keeps it going and the benefits he's gotten from engaging with the .NET community even though as a CTO, he may not be actively cutting code anymore. We also go into some of these recent blog articles and talk about some open-source projects that he thinks is fairly neat.

    Cross-Platform .NET - .NET 135

    Cross-Platform .NET - .NET 135

    .NET has been cross-platform for a number of years now starting with the release of .NET Core. Most of the developers that we know work on Windows computers so we don't have first or second hand knowledge of using .NET on other operating systems. Today that is going to change. Maarten Merken has been doing .NET development on a Mac for more than two years and he joins us on the podcast to discuss his experience. We talk about different versions of .NET, debugging, virtualization, IDE's and more. When it comes to IDE's Maarten feels like JetBrains Rider is the best cross-platform IDE out there. Are you doing cross-platform development with .NET? If not, have you thought about trying it? Let us know on Twitter at @dotnet_Podcast.

    WPF Still Going Strong - .NET 134

    WPF Still Going Strong - .NET 134

    "I thought WPF was dead" is usually one of the first things that Kevin Bost hears when discussing today's topic. WPF is not dead. In fact, WPF is supported by .NET 6 and a plethora of third-party apps, extensions and packages. Kevin has been working with WPF for a long time and has become an expert on the framework. In today's episode we discuss some of the strengths and weaknesses of WPF, competing frameworks, open-source projects and the path forward. If you need to develop desktop apps for Windows, WPF is still the most mature framework out there. Have you worked with WPF? Are you currently developing applications with WPF? Let us know on Twitter at @dotnet_Podcast.
