Implementing Background Tasks in ASP.NET Core with HangFire

Background job processing can be incredibly helpful. Anything from kicking off a longer-running process, to regular process of things such as outbound emails, and everything in-between. There are many methods or tools to be able to do this, however, finding an accurate getting started guide that works for a full implementation in ASP.NET Core is hard. In this post we will work through adding support for background tasks in ASP.NET Core using HangFire.

Creating a DNN Extension Build Pipeline in Azure DevOps

Over the past year-and-a-half I have been working to improve the automation in our development processes. It is my desire to always have consistent development, review, and release processes for all customers, regardless of their size. As I worked to leverage Azure DevOps more within our organization I realized that with very little work it is possible to create a build pipeline for DNN Extension development to create a clean process. In this post, we will dig into this process a bit.

DNN, .NET Core, and the Road Ahead

I’ll be the first to admit that this blog post should have been written a few weeks ago, however, a number of items needed to fall in-line before I could give this post justice. Within the DNN Technology Advisory Group (TAG) the future of DNN as it relates to .NET Core has been discussed at length many times. These conversations have come to multiple conclusions in the past, however, in the most recent discussions, thanks to some clarity by Microsoft an immediate term decision has been put in place. In this post I hope to try and share the highlights of those discussions, the reasoning behind the decision and the road ahead, at last as it appears now, for DNN.

.NET Core/ .NET Framework My Perspective On The Future

Over the past three years I've given many talks at conferences regarding .NET Core, I've implemented many solutions for customers using .NET Core, and help consult with many organizations looking to move forward. No matter what way you slice it, it seems that .NET Core is the future, but there are still many questions out there regarding the future and how you move forward. In my time working with .NET Core I made some assumptions early on that are starting to come true. With all of the recent news and confusion, I thought this would be a good time to try and summarize where we are, and what I think it means.
