    Uno Platform: One UI to Rule Them All with Martin Zikmund

    Uno Platform: One UI to Rule Them All with Martin Zikmund

    Avalonia XPF This episode of The Modern .NET Show is supported, in part, by Avalonia XPF, a binary-compatible cross-platform fork of WPF, enables WPF apps to run on new platforms with minimal effort and maximum compatibility.
    Show Notes Uno Platform started off as the core UI framework. UI and non UI, because as part of Uno Platform itself, you have some non UI APIs like accelerometer and like these device sensors that you can use in a cross platform manner. So that part is the core framework, which is the backbone to everything that we built on top of it.

    — Martin Zikmund
    Welcome to The Modern .NET Show! Formerly known as The .NET Core Podcast, we are the go-to podcast for all .NET developers worldwide and I am your host Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor.
    In this episode, Martin Zikmund joined us to talk about Uno Platform and how it's way more than just a UI framework. It has support for APIs such as reading device sensors like accelerometers, too. But the bread and butter of Uno Platform, like AvaloniaUI, comes from the fact that you can use the familiar WPF syntax and either the new MVUX architecture or the more familiar to most MVU architecture to build your apps.
    Yeah, ideally it should work on any Linux where .NET runs.
    And we are currently using GTK as the underlying framework that simplifies our like that access to Linux specific APIs. So there is kind of a middleware layer of GTK. And you know, that makes the development for us much easier because it already has those shims for different versions of Linux and so on built in.

    .NET MAUI: Navigating the Cross-Platform Code Seas with Maddy Montaquila

    .NET MAUI: Navigating the Cross-Platform Code Seas with Maddy Montaquila

    Avalonia XPF This episode of The Modern .NET Show is supported, in part, by Avalonia XPF, a binary-compatible cross-platform fork of WPF, enables WPF apps to run on new platforms with minimal effort and maximum compatibility.
    Show Notes Yeah, so .NET MAUI is the .NET stack, framework, whatever you want to call it, for writing one code base that runs on what we call client devices, client platforms.
    So you have the web, you have ASP .NET Blazor and all that stuff. You have the console apps, you can write with C#, of course, so many backends and APIs and all of that stuff running in the cloud. But with MAUI, it's for client app development. So Android, iOS, macOS and Windows, you can target using XAML and C#, or just C# if you don't like XAML, or Razor if you want to. All are options.
    But you can write one code, business logic, your UI, all of your endpoint management and everything, all of that. And it's just written in C#. It's a .NET application. It's using .NET MAUI
    — Maddy Montaquila Welcome to The Modern .NET Show! Formerly known as The .NET Core Podcast, we are the go-to podcast for all .NET developers worldwide and I am your host Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor.
    In this episode, Maddy Montaquila joined us to talk about .NET MAUI—the Multi-platform Application User Interface—what it is, it's history, and why developers who are looking for a first-party UI-framework their modern .NET apps should check it out.
    We can do that totally within MAUI. It's actually pretty easy.
    So you can just say like, "on platform Android, do this," or "on idiom," we call them idioms, right? Tablet, desktop, or phone. "On idiom, do this."
    We actually have customers who will ship in the same code base, like two completely different navigation stacks. So it will say, "on desktop, load it up with this nav stack and load into these pages. On mobile, load it up into this nav stack and load up these pages." But since you can share the components, you can basically say, "the navigation of my desktop app, everything is horizontal, but I pull in the same components. It's just like a different grid view than I would do on mobile where it's all stacked on top of each other and it's a scroll." Right?
    So you can get super flexible with all of it.

    Avalonia XPF This episode of The Modern .NET Show is supported, in part, by Avalonia XPF, a binary-compatible cross-platform fork of WPF, enables WPF apps to run on new platforms with minimal effort and maximum compatibility.
    Show Notes And keep in mind that, not to bash OWASP and the top ten at all because I'm a big fan of OWASP, but people always tell me like, "yeah, I'm OWASP compliant," and that's the biggest BS, to be honest. Because a top ten could not like, it should be an awareness piece and you should work from it. And there are better ways of dealing with that. But I think a security scorecard should never be a goal. It should be a means to reach the goal, to have better understanding, right? And hopefully they can change stuff and be more expressive.

    — Niels Tanis Welcome to The Modern .NET Show! Formerly known as The .NET Core Podcast, we are the go-to podcast for all .NET developers worldwide and I am your host Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor.
    In this episode, Niels Tanis returned to the show. He was previous on the show back in episode 69 - The Risks of Third Party Code With Niels Tanis - which was released back in February of 2021. I asked Niels to back on the show to talk more about securing the software development supply chain and SBoMs (Software Bills of Materials).
    Yeah, that makes sense. It's funny.
    So I think when I started out talking about supply chain, and there were some tools that have been introduced to do SBoM data, and then you also come into an area called provenance, which tells more about the build and about "this build server was used. And I've run on GitHub actions, or I run on a GitLab instance, or I have stuff done differently," right? Maybe even the Redhat one: Tekton, that kind of thing. And based on that, I'm producing an SBoM.
    And I did a talk and I concluded with that, "it's like, these are cool tools, you need to look into it." And then somebody at the end asked me the question, "and the what? You have all the data? And then what?" I said, "yeah, that's solid question because that will be the next step." And it's funny that you mentioned it as well.
    So over the time, I think it was around already when I started out talking. But there's a project that Google created called Guac.

    Code, Coffee, and Clever Debugging: Leslie Richardson's Microsoft Journey and the C# Dev Kit in Visual Studio Code with Leslie Richardson

    Code, Coffee, and Clever Debugging: Leslie Richardson's Microsoft Journey and the C# Dev Kit in Visual Studio Code with Leslie Richardson

    Avalonia XPF This episode of The Modern .NET Show is supported, in part, by Avalonia XPF, a binary-compatible cross-platform fork of WPF, enables WPF apps to run on new platforms with minimal effort and maximum compatibility.
    Show Notes Yeah, so C# Dev Kit, it is a pretty new extension in VS Code. We just GA'd it back in early October. And it's an extension that basically enables you to be productive writing C# applications in VS Code.
    —Leslie Richardson Welcome to The Modern .NET Show! Formerly known as The .NET Core Podcast, we are the go-to podcast for all .NET developers worldwide and I am your host Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor.
    In this episode, I spoke with Leslie Richardson about the C# Dev Kit, a new extension for Visual Studio Code which aims to make the experience of writing C# and .NET code in the free editor more productive. It improves the experience of working with almost all code bases which use modern .NET, and includes the ability to even run and explore your unit tests within VS Code - something that wasn't easily doable previously.
    I know before C# Dev Kit existed, the Test Explorer is a window that exists by default in VS Code. But yeah, you're already laughing like, "oh yeah."
    So it wasn't very great pre Dev Kit from my understanding, like simple things such as being able to automatically recognise your test once you build your test project. That was not a thing, which blows my mind. I'm like, "but then what are you supposed to do? Just manually add them in? That doesn't sound fun at all, especially if you're trying to do the whole test-driven development." You've got tests everywhere and it's like, "well, that's 50 some tests I have to log in. Yippee. I love testing."
    Yeah, I can't imagine that's a great experience. So thankfully, with C# Dev Kit, we've actually made the window functional. I know, bare minimum, but I still think it's pretty good. So when you build your test projects, it should be able to recognize everything that you have registered as a test via like a test method attribute or whatever kind of test type that you're using

    From .NET to DuckDB: Unleashing the Database Evolution with Giorgi Dalakishvili

    From .NET to DuckDB: Unleashing the Database Evolution with Giorgi Dalakishvili

    NService Bus This episode of The Modern .NET Show is supported, in part, by NServiceBus, the ultimate tool to build robust and reliable systems that can handle failures gracefully, maintain high availability, and scale to meet growing demand.
    Make sure you click the link in the show notes to learn more about NServiceBus.
    Show Notes Yeah. So what I was thinking the other day is that what we want is to concentrate on the business logic that we need to implement and spend as small as little time as possible configuring, installing and figuring out the tools and libraries that we are using for this specific task. Like our mission is to produce the business logic and we should try to minimize the time that we spend on the tools and libraries that enable us to build the software.
    —Giorgi Dalakishvili Welcome to The Modern .NET Show! Formerly known as The .NET Core Podcast, we are the go-to podcast for all .NET developers worldwide and I am your host Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor.
    In this episode, I spoke with Giorgi Dalakishvili about Postgresql, DuckDB, and where you might use either of them in your applications. As Giorgi points out, .NET has support for SQL Server baked in, but there's also support for other database technologies too:
    Yes, there are many database technologies and just like you, for me, SQL Server was the default go to database for quite a long time because it's from Microsoft. All the frameworks and libraries work with SQL Server out of the box, and have usually better support for SQL Server than for other databases.
    But recently I have been diving into Postgresql, which is a free database and I discovered that it has many interesting features and I think that many .NET developers will be quite excited about these features. The are very useful in some very specific scenarios. And it also has a very good support for .NET. Nowadays there is a .NET driver for Postgres, there is a .NET driver for Entity Framework core. So I would say it's not behind SQL server in terms of .NET support or feature wise.
    —Giorgi Dalakishvili He also points out that our specialist skill as developers is not to focus on the tools, libraries, and frameworks, but to use what we have in our collective toolboxes to build the business logic that our customers, clients, and users desire of us. And along the way, he drops some knowledge on an essential NuGet package for those of us who are using Entity Framework..
    So let's sit back, open up a terminal, type in dotnet new podcast and we'll dive into the core of Modern .NET.

    Navigating the Web of HATEOAS and HTMX: Unleashing the Power of Hypermedia and Simplified Front-End Wizardry with Sander ten Brinke

    Avalonia XPF This episode of The Modern .NET Show is supported, in part, by Avalonia XPF, a binary-compatible cross-platform fork of WPF, enables WPF apps to run on new platforms with minimal effort and maximum compatibility.
    Show Notes Hateos allows you to add links to the actions you can perform with the data you're returning. So imagine a tweet and imagine, for example, just a links. It's just an object with some arrays. And one of the links could be a retweet link or like a favourite link or like a delete link. And each link contains a type, which is like the HTTP type, it contains the URL to where you perform this action, and it also contains like a name. So kind of human readable kind of name. So like like retweet, delete, stuff like that.
    —Sander ten Brinke Welcome to The Modern .NET Show! Formerly known as The .NET Core Podcast, we are the go-to podcast for all .NET developers worldwide and I am your host Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor.
    In this episode, I spoke with Sander ten Brinke about HATEOAS and HTMX. These are two separate but complementary technologies which help to build reactive web applications. In fact, as Irina pointed out back in episode 2 of the current season (released on Sept 22nd, 2023), you're likely not building RESTful services if you're not doing HATEOAS.
    And HTMX is something, as you'll find out, which aims to simplify building HTML-based apps that utilise web-based APIs by taking care of the boilerplate JavaScript code that you might need to include, using a series of attributes that you can place on elements.
    So HTMX is in the principle, it's a JavaScript library, which you can use. So you can use it in your application to write a whole lot less JavaScript.
    Let's think back to the good old days, right, where we were writing, like, Web 1.0 applications and our servers were simply like, we're using HTML templating engines, which they still do.
    It worked and it worked fine, but it wasn't very interactive because then we kind of got to the point where we were like, we want to do some cool clients application, but we don't want to reload the page the entire time. And that is kind of where the SPA movement came along. We want to be able to have a rich interactive application where clicking a button or clicking multiple buttons, just a bit of the page refreshes, right? That's kind of the Web 2.0, I suppose.

Great listen

I have been listening to this one from the start. It is a great podcast, has great guests, and the host Jamie always makes the conversation fun to listen too. Nothing is in to touch (bad dad joke I know, but Ted Lasso is my guilty pleasure TV show)so far. I have learned about security, databases, the things you can do with raspberry pi, and more.

JohnHanna86 ,

Show for shallow software engineers

There is a huge focus in the show on the a very high level technologies
And they encourage software engineers to
NOT focus on the low level details
In one of the shows they explicitly said “why focus on things that people smarter than you are taking care of them”

rbleattler ,

The Best .NET Core Podcast out there!

Okay, so the name is really a bit of a joke given this is THE .NET Core Podcast, but jokes aside, I love this podcast. The host really manages to get some good talks about topics I care to learn about. I'm hoping to dive deep enough into PowerShell Core to have enough talking points to get an interview myself *cough*. Give the show a listen, if you live in the .NET world, you'll absolutely enjoy it!
