Kafka Log Compaction This tutorial is to demonstrate how Log Compaction works in Apache Kafka. For this tutorial, I will use .NET and a local Docker image to run Apache Kafka. This example will demonstrate how to create distributable settings that could be stored in a Kafka topic. This is similar to how Kafka Connect saves its configuration for connectors...
Pointing a Domain Name to Azure Kubernetes (AKS) with a Static IP There are several ways to do this. I will start with the most basic way to demonstrate how this could be done and then gradually demonstrate more advanced ways. I will point a domain name to a Kubernetes service that will host multiple WordPress websites. This is a...
PostgreSQL for .NET Developers Venturing into microservice architecture has forced me to become more aware of other technologies that may be more performant, cheaper, and or a better match for that specific need. PostgreSQL ("Postgres") is a relational database that is very comparable to Oracle. It's not that different than MSSQL but has some serious quirks. The more I learn...
Kong API Management Kong is an open-source platform that has tools for API Gateways, API Management, Governance, and Kubernetes. API Gateways provide a way to proxy traffic to different services. This is very beneficial for many reasons. By acting as a single entry point the API gateway is responsible for routing traffic. This means that if a company wanted to...

Dad’s Work Memorabilia My dad was a software developer with a career working as a BI developer, .NET developer and eventually ended up being a Windows Systems Administrator before he passed. When we were going through his stuff we found all of his career-related memorabilia.
Repository Pattern (C#) There are some really good articles out there about the repository pattern but I haven't seen one that strongly demonstrates different data providers, sample code, or some of the tricks I've learned. I primarily build internal business applications so I've used this pattern at almost every .NET job I've ever had. It's very common and I've learned...
