Last weekend, we’ve had to adjust all of our watches in Europe to the Daylight Saving Time. On this occasion, we were moving an hour forward, which is not a big deal for IT systems. It’s much worse in October when you move back in time and have 2.30 two times during one night. I won’t be disputing if we should get rid of DST. Instead, I would like to show you how to deal with it in IT properly.
These days, you can select from many applications to help you at work everyday. I am doing web development for something like 15 years (!). I thought some of you may find it useful to see the tools I use at work.
Sometimes, in the web application, you need to perform some task for every request. It could be logging, authenticating users or modifying the response. Every web framework allows implementing this in some way. Today, I would like to show you how to do it in the ASP.NET Core.
Technical debt is an inherent part of IT. If you’re working on software, you probably incurred it few times. Sometimes it is worth to accept it, but only if you know exactly why you took it, how much is it and when or if you’re going to pay it up. And most importantly, if you agreed on it with business. There have been many articles written about this topic, but most of them cover the business side. Today, I would like to share few thoughts from a developers perspective.
