    Messaging in Distributed Systems - What's the Deal?

    Messaging in Distributed Systems - What's the Deal?

    Chris, Jess, and Todd chat about enterprise messaging patterns. Is it a good practice to put a message bus or a queue in between your web server and your middle tier services? Can message buses be overkill? What's the best way for your loosely-coupled containerized services to communicate with one another? Did Todd actually say that there's some benefits to building a monolith?

    We asked all these questions, but you've got to listen to see how many of them we actually answered... or how many answers we actually got right.

    Going beyond NuGet.org by creating your own packages

    Real-World Git

    Real-World Git

    Todd, Chris, and Jess chat about using Git in their day-to-day lives. Jess thinks it's the best thing since the CPU, but Todd thinks it's just the shiny new toy that's no better than TFS. Meanwhile, Chris thinks that GitFlow is the most overly-complicated process he's ever seen. What do you think?

    Real-World DevOps with Andy Schwam

    Real-World DevOps with Andy Schwam

    What does "DevOps" really mean when you're not up on stage demoing the latest DevOps product or working at Netflix, Etsy, or Facebook?  To find out, we ask Andy Schwam (@schwammy), a development manager, architect, and coder who has lived and breathed the concepts of "DevOps" in the real world... and lived to tell about it.

    What's myth and what works?  What's hard and what's easy?  Andy takes us behind the scenes and tells us what it takes to transform an existing error-prone manual deployment to a highly-reliable, repeatable, and automated process.

    Introducing Razor Pages

    Introducing Razor Pages

    Razor Pages is a brand new feature in .NET Core 2.0 that brings the Page Model back into .NET Core, providing developers a simple, effective, and above all, easy way to create dynamic web pages without having to get into the details of the Model-View-Controller (MVC) approach.

     

    Or is it?

     

    Join Jess, Todd, and Chris as they try to make sense of that one last .NET Core 2.0 feature that they left out in the last episode, Razor Pages.  What exactly is it?  Is it actually simple?  Is it really easier than using ASP.NET Core MVC?
