Using REDIS for caching values for increasing application performance can be quite beneficial and can increase performance and scalability of your application. Although REDIS allows quite large text files, up to 512MB which is something you most likely will not reach if you are storing for example JOSN data, there will be a significant network transfer over the wire for putting and pulling this value in and out. ...read more
QR code MVC html helper
Display runtime generated QR code in MVC page
0
This article is based on one of my previous topic Advanced Base64 image extension in ASP.NET MVC. It uses the same concept to display image on the page and to cache it, but it involves QR code bitmap generation which is basically a NuGet package use. Basically, QR code is generated using NuGet package QRCoder https://www.nuget.org/packages/QRCoder/ and result Bitmap is serialized to base64 string and cached so we do not regenerate same QR bitmap over and over on every request which may lead to server overload. ...read more

MSMQ recovery with .NET
Using MSMQ with message recovery in .NET
 
0
MSMQ is a bit old stuff and there are bunch of other products out here which perform better in most of the scenarios, but MSMQ is still used in a lot of solutions and Microsoft still did not announce support ending for MSMQ so it will be for sure some more time around.One of the stuff that is missing as out of the box feature in MSMQ is recovery.

SqlBulkCopy with model classes in C#
Use SqlBulkCopy with model (POCO) classes in C#
 
0
So far (based on my experience) the fastest way to insert big number of records from application to database is to use SqlBulkCopy. The downsize of this is that SqlBulkCopy uses DataTable instace as an input parameter which is not so convenient when dealing with models which are strongly typed and a lot more easy to use than iterating through the DataTable. Since SqlBulkCopy accepts DataTable for insert you can not use models directly to insert your data...read more

Developing Windows Service might a a real headache since you do not have any visual part to see the output. Even if you want to rely on Visual Studio debugger you need to install the service, stop it (if already running), deploy, start the service from Windows MMC and finally hook up Visual Studio to the running service process. Whooh, a lot of things to be done just to start debugging and you have to do it every time you want to start your debugging session (of course not including install every time obviously). ...read more
