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.

Using Gists for General Purpose Web Pages with Markdown



Most of you probably know and use Github Gists for sharing Code snippets. But did you know that Gists also support Markdown? Using Markdown makes it easy to create much richer code shareable code and even allows for an easy way to create self-contained Web content.

Flexing your HTML Layout Muscles with Flexbox



Flexbox is a CSS based technology that makes it much easier to create structured layouts with HTML and CSS. Based on a containership hierarchy, Flexbox combines the structured features of tables with the free form layout capabilities of arbitrary HTML elements that make it possible to create complex , yet flexible HTML designs much more easily that was otherwise possible. My article in CoDe Magazine describes the reasons for Flexbox, the basics of operation and few practical examples you can use today to put flexbox to use.
