I’m building the foundation for an ASP.Net Core 2 site with Cosmos DB as the back-end store and want to build in the idea of user-manageable API keys. In the past two posts, I’ve added interactive registration and login to the application using built-in Cookie and Twitter middleware on top of custom authorization logic and […]

I’m building a B2C website with Cosmos DB as the back-end store and starting with common elements like Authentication. In my prior post, we connected the Cookie Middleware with custom membership logic and a standard username/password login method. In this one, we’ll be extending the system to also allow users to register and login via […]
I’m building a B2C website with Cosmos DB as the backend store. This site will have a number of different authentication mechanisms, but I’m newer to ASP.Net Core 2 and the authentication changes since the prior version so I’m going to start with a basic Cookie and Login authentication system. This is the second post […]
I am building the basic foundation for a B2C web application, using ASP.Net Core 2 and Cosmos DB. Along the way I’m going to need authentication, source control, CI/CD, … but first I have to start learning what’s changed in ASP.Net Core 2 and how to use Cosmos DB beyond the 5-minute console application demo.

Performing Authentication and Authorization has changed from ASP.Net to ASP.Net Core. Rather than relying on attributes, ASP.Net Core uses middleware similar to NancyFX and Rails. This is a short, step-by-step approach to implementing custom Authentication in ASP.Net Core without the overhead (and assumptions) of the new Identity model. The goal is to support basic necessities […]
In an earlier post I introduced a strongly typed Identity object I am using in an ASP.Net Core application to make my code and error messages more readable. I didn’t wanted that extra complexity reflected in my database or over the wire with an API. In this post we’ll look at a simple method to […]
One of the challenges of SPA applications is making sure a bookmark or hard refresh knows how to load just enough of the content from the server before applying the client-side routing logic to that base page. This is not guaranteed to be the only way to do this, just the one that worked for […]
So, you’re a developer? or an architect? or maybe even a technical delivery manager? Great 🙂 I need you! I’m currently doing some research for an upcoming book, and for a new software product, and who better to ask than those that are building and delivering software solutions each and every day? So I’d like […]
If you’re working on a free product or startup, you’re probably thinking frequently about how to balance your time across all the things that need doing. One of those millions of things is getting a marketing site up to tell people about your amazing thing, and do so in a way that looks professional, is […]
Recently I started learning Elixir and the Phoenix framework. I’ve found that mixing hands on programming with reading is the fastest way for me to get up to speed with a new language or framework, so if that’s your style you might find this useful. In this post I started at zero and ended at […]
