This is the 20th and the last post in the GetNoticed! competition. So it means that… I DID IT! I survived till the very end, I managed to create 20 posts in 10 weeks. ReMaster is still alive (it could be fed better but let’s leave this subject :P). It’s time to celebrate, I mean, have some sleep ?.
What I’m proud of?
I have a blog! One year ago I was sure that my programming life is boring and even the problems I encounter while coding are too boring to write about them. And I believed that there is everything already written so what’s the point in writing the 100th ASP.Net tutorial?
Now I don’t know which subject from my long TODO list should I choose first!
I also fear less about pushing my code to github PR. I know that my style of coding is far from perfection ? and my code tends to be messy ? so that’s a huge step! I think I can even say that breaking this barrier in my head is the greatest outcome of the competition!
Recently I have quite tough time coding. Anything I touched, throws exception with messages that even google wasn’t eager to answer. Since I started developing my pet project ReMaster, it became a rule. I don’t know if it’s because of my rather small knowledge of the .net core or just the fact that I work on the ReMaster usually late in the night and I’m half asleep by the time. But never mind and let’s focus on my last problems and solutions.
How many times you almost pushed some sensitive data to public repo? I have to admit, it’s one of my nightmares since I heard about crawlers occuping github and searching for credit cards data, API credentials and so on.
But it looks like this problem is over, at least for .Net Core developers. And it is because of one simple tool provided by Microsoft. It’s name is… Continue Reading
You may be surprised (I was!) but Visual Studio 2015 (and Visual Studio 2017) is not able to add (out of the box) a service reference.
When you click right mouse button on the ‘References‘ folder, there is an option ‘Add Connected Service‘ but it doesn’t allow us to add service reference, it has only two options Continue Reading
The last two evenings I reserved for coding. The plan was like this – download all the Polish companies, save them in database and make some functionality in ‘admin area’. But of course first things first – unit tests!
I have to admit, most of the code I write doesn’t have tests. It’s not something I’m proud of but life is life, deadline is deadline – but once again – it’s something that really (really – really!) makes me feel ashamed. So, this time I want to make my pet project properly and write as much unit tests as it’s possible. And I’m really curious if I will stick to this idea till the end of ReMaster. Anyway, forgive me if my tests will be bizarre ;).
I installed xUnit packages. I wrote a test just for the purpose of checking if everything is fine aaaand… Continue Reading
ReSharper is a great Visual Studio extension but without the knowledge about its keyboard shortcuts and other tricks, it’s completely useless. That’s why (and because of the fact, every ‘Get Noticed!’ participant has a free version of this software – more info here), I decided to write about the most popular features. Of course, it’s not a full list, but you may find some of the below helpful.
I am the kind of person that always has in mind a few pet projects’ ideas. Some of them are crazy, some would probably be a catastrophic failure, but hey! You never know before you try ;)! So I decided to try once again (the tenth time?) start my new project and get some extra motivation from the Get Noticed! competition.
Yes, I’m in! Continue Reading
