Deep Dive into Microsoft Configuration

When .NET Core was released, a new configuration mechanism came with it: Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.

This post tries to clarify some of the usage patterns and how the new system works based on questions and common issues I’ve seen “in the wild.”

System.IO.Pipelines: High performance IO in .NET

Pipelines was born from the work the .NET Core team did to make Kestrel one of the fastest web servers in the industry.

I have a program that parses data from both delimited files and Excel spreadsheets.

A dynamic, lightweight and fast repo-based ORM .NET Library
