Accessing Configuration in .NET Core Test Projects



.NET Core provides a clean configuration system and in ASP.NET Core that code is automatically configured for you. In test and other non-Web projects however you have to manually configure the configuration provider yourself. In this post I look at a couple of ways to set up a configuration provider both using raw configuration objects or by explicitly configuring through the depedency injection system.

Working around the lack of dynamic DbProviderFactory loading in .NET Core



.NET Core and .NET Standard are missing the DbProviderFactories class which is used to dynamically load ADO.NET DbProviderFactory instances which in turn are used to gain access to the various ADO.NET intrinsic objects generically without requiring an explicit reference to the data access provider. In this post I describe why this can be a problem for libraries that use multiple data providers and show a workaround for loading a DbProviderFactory without taking an explict dependency on the provider assembly.

Multi-Targeting and Porting a .NET Library to .NET Core 2.0



I've been holding off porting any of my full frameworks to .NET Core. With the latest .NET Core 2.0 and .NET Standard 2.0 releases and their vastly larger footprints that match more closely with what we expect of the .NET Framework feature set, migrating looks a lot more appealing. In this post I describe the process of porting one of my general purpose full framework libraries to .NET Standard 2.0 and in the process also creating a multi-targeted project that compiles .NET 4.5, 4.0 and .NET Standard projects.

.NET Standard 2.0 - Making Sense of .NET Again



It's taken awhile but it seems Microsoft is finally nailing the message for .NET going forward and .NET Standard with its common API specification is a huge part in making sure that the same base library of .NET is available on all .NET platforms. In this post I look at what .NET Standard is, how it works and what some of the surrounding issues and impacts are for the .NET Eco system.
