What is WebAssembly and how to create a WebAssembly app?

Preamble

The browsers only understand JavaScript, however with rise of stuff that we use on browsers e.g. Games, Virtual Reality, Augumented Reality, JavaScript hasn’t been able to catch up due to its inherent interpreted nature despite its powerful engines like V8.

Suppose you have a cool game or software developed in a low-level programming language e.g. C/C++ or a high-level programming language e.g. Java/C#/Rust/Go. With WebAssembly you can run these apps on a browser. Wihout re-writing them in JavaScript.

Wait, what?


Using Feature Flags aka Feature Toggles in Microservices and DevOps

What’s a Feature Flag/Feature Toggle

Cloud Native Microservices and DevOps are much about speed and agility. Users expect rapid responsiveness, innovative features, and zero downtime. Feature flags are a modern deployment technique that helps increase agility for cloud-native applications. They enable you to deploy new features into a production environment, but restrict their availability. With the flick of a switch, you can activate a new feature for specific users without restarting the app or deploying new code. They separate the release of new features from their code deployment.


Creating a gRPC Microservice and Client in .NET Core

What is gRPC?

gRPC is a modern, high-performance framework that evolves the age-old remote procedure call (RPC) protocol. At the application level, gRPC streamlines messaging between clients and back-end services. Originating from Google, gRPC is open source and part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) ecosystem of cloud-native offerings.


How to Scaffold Controllers with database views to EF Core 2.1

How to Scaffold Controllers with database views to EF Core 2.1

  1. Create view in database.
  2. Create a POCO with same structure as view.
  3. Add a new Controller with POCO created in step#2 a. If key related error occurrs, add a Key attribute on a column and then remove after scaffolding is completed.
  4. A new property with DbSet<T> should have gotten added where T is the class created in step#2. Change DbSet to DbQuery.
  5. In OnModelCreating method of DbContext, add following code:
    modelBuilder.Query<POCO from step#2>().ToView("Name of the view");
