Optimizing string.Count all the way from LINQ to hardware accelerated vectorized instructions

This blog post is a brief introduction to the world of vectorized instructions in C#, and it is meant to be accessible for developers that have never really used them before on their own, just like I had not until today.

Solving Tricky Coordination Problems in Stateless .NET Services - Loris Cro

Developing modern, service-oriented architectures requires that our services become stateless to enable horizontal scalability. ASP.NET helps in doing so with IDistributedCache, but caching is only one of many new coordination problems.In this session I will present how to approach some coordination

Building a self-contained game in C# under 8 kilobytes

As someone who grew up in the times of 1.44 MB floppy disks and 56 kbit modems, I’ve always liked small programs. I could fit many small programs on a floppy disk I carried with me.

Protobuffers Are Wrong

I’ve spent a good deal of my professional life arguing against using protobuffers. They’re clearly written by amateurs, unbelievably ad-hoc, mired in gotchas, tricky to compile, and solve a problem that nobody but Google really has.

Time-of-check to time-of-use

In software development, time-of-check to time-of-use (TOCTOU, TOCTTOU or TOC/TOU) is a class of software bugs caused by a race condition involving the checking of the state of a part of a system (such as a security credential) and the use of the results of that check.

ConfigureAwait FAQ

.NET added async/await to the languages and libraries over seven years ago. In that time, it’s caught on like wildfire, not only across the .NET ecosystem, but also being replicated in a myriad of other languages and frameworks. It’s also seen a ton of improvements in .

DbUp/DbUp

DbUp is a .NET library that helps you to deploy changes to SQL Server databases. It tracks which SQL scripts have been run already, and runs the change scripts that are needed to get your database up to date.

C# Channels - Publish / Subscribe Workflows

Recently, I watched Rob Pike's talk on “Go Concurrency Patterns” where he explains Go's approach to concurrency and demonstrates some of its features for building concurrent programs. I found its simplicity and ease of use fascinating and went on to implement some of these techniques in C#.
