Pissed by a function

 
event

Lately, I have been going through a rough coding patch.
Rough as in getting familiar with a huge codebase that has been cooking for a year and a half and, being mild here, could have received a little bit more care before.

Luckily for me I am getting familiar with it through one of the best ways one can get familiar with a codebase: writing those "unit" tests that are so well needed.

A tale of two trips

 
event

Some days ago I came back from a visit to a friend that lives abroad.

While canned in the plane back I started to compare the whole travelling experience to what it was some not so many years ago.

.NET Core SDK 2 on Unsupported OS

 
event

I have been without a “proper” development laptop for a while. But that fact did not prevent me from hacking my way around in my old iMac.

Do you know what would have prevented my hacking? The fact the the newer .NET SDK 2.0 would not install in my non-Sierra system.
But it didn’t, want to know how?

Multi-targeting source code packages with Nuget

 
event

Time goes on and change is constant. What we thought it worked, it may not now; sometimes for a good reason, sometimes not.

This time I'll dig on what I had to do to attach code to a solution, even if the solution is targeting the classic .NET Framework (net)or the newer .NET Core Framework (netcore). Because that is what I had to do myself.

NMoneys serialization gets a lifting

 
event

After migrating NMoneys (and NMoneys.Exchange) to support .NET Core it is time to lend a little love to the support for serialization via third-party serialization libraries.

This support operates in a very different way than the usual: 1. install package 2. some library is referenced 3. time to code against that library as it comes in the shape of source code that are added to your solution and compiled as part of it.

Migrating libraries to .NET Core. Post-mortem 2

 
event

I have already gone through some of the choices I considered when porting my Open Source Libraries to support the .NET Core platform.

Let's dive into details of each of them, as each has its own peculiarities.
