Cross-Platform C# UI Technologies

There are several UI technologies that can be used to build Cross-Platform apps in C# or other .NET based languages such as Visual Basic (VB). This article looks at three technologies and discusses which cases these technologies could be used for. This article will give you a baseline understanding of technologies that are available for building front-end applications in C#, and will answers questions like which platforms are available? Can it run in a browser? Will it have a native look and feel? And, can it be deployed to the app stores?

Debugging and fixing the Twitch desktop client

I’ve seen through the years that debugging is often misunderstood. Many people that are unfamiliar with debugging tend to think it’s all about mastering difficult and austere tools. I often had coworkers ask me “what sequence of commands should I type in WinDbg to debug this kind of issue?”, as if debugging was about applying a simple flowchart with a complex tool. This is in fact quite the opposite. Debugging is all about the mindset and the methodology, and the tooling is the simple part. Thinking that debugging is about learning how to use WinDbg is like thinking you can become an investigative journalist by learning how to use a camera. Sure, this will help, but you won’t go very far with just that skill.

Cache Implementations in C# .NET

When performing a heavy operation, we will save the result in our cache container. The next time that we need that result, we will pull it from the cache container, instead of performing the heavy operation again.

Performance Improvements in .NET Core 3.0

Back when we were getting ready to ship .NET Core 2.0, I wrote a blog post exploring some of the many performance improvements that had gone into it. I enjoyed putting it together so much and received such a positive response to the post that I did it again for .NET Core 2.1, a version for which performance was also a significant focus. With //build last week and .NET Core 3.0‘s release now on the horizon, I’m thrilled to have an opportunity to do it again.
