Service Fabric Handbook


This post is a handbook where you probably will find an answer to “How different things works in Azure Service Fabric?” question. Almost all of the information (around 90%) is from docs.microsoft.com, GitHub and etc., the rest of it are personal findings made during development of CoherentSolutions.Extensions.ServiceFabric.Hosting.

Where possible the information will be confirmed by reliable source (docs, issues or posts).

.NET R&D Digest (May, 2020)

Today is the last Friday of the last Spring month – the last Friday in May. But do not hurry to say goodbye to the Spring – you still have a weekend to celebrate it, and, as you know, the best (or at least not the worst) way to spend your weekend is reading or watching interesting and exciting technical articles and videos, which, by the way, you can find in a new issues of .NET R&D Digest!

Using secrets in Azure Container Instances


At work I am involved in one of our internal project development. This project is a relatively small (less than 30 pages) ASP.NET Core 3.1 Razor Pages application. From it’s first days application is hosted in Azure using Azure Container Instance, Azure SQL Database and Azure Key Vault (continues integration and deployment pipelines are powered by Azure DevOps).

There is nothing special in such setup, however as it happens with setups of this kind, there is one thing that has to be managed prior to implementing it – “How to securely pass secrets to Azure Container Instances and securely read secrets stored in Azure Key Vault (ex. read database connection string) from within Azure Container Instances?”

Finding the answer was my responsibility, so I have created a dummy project and dived into Azure documentation. This post contains results of my findings composed, as I hope, in easy and understandable format.

Enjoy and stay safe!

.NET R&D Digest (November – December, 2019)

This year was huge for .NET community. We hit .NET Core 3.0 with all it’s goodies just to find out that .NET Framework 4.8 will be the last framework release. We saw a glimpse of future called .NET 5 where Mono is part of the .NET. We saw / heard multiple talks from multiple conferences and read a lot of blog posts from the internet.

Now the year is coming to its end but there are still some stuff to read and I know, there is nothing better than read some technology blog post on holiday / vacation 😊

Have a good time! See you next year!
