Azure App Configuration (still in preview) is a very simple way of uploading appsettings.json to azure. Add nuget Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration.AzureAppConfiguration and a call to extension method AddAzureAppConfiguration. Then only a single connection string is required to acces it (bbest practice is to set it into environment variable).
Pretty cool with a better granularity than key vault (granularity at file level instead of entry level).
A Watch method is available to implement 30 seconds reload on specifics parts. A better option should have been to use a WebHook called on each changes (perhaps an incoming evolution).

A C++ 11 library for each major platform usefull to provide standard (slightly modified … production code used by Googlebot, Google’s crawler).
Simple to use: function named ParseRobotsTxt takes robots.txt content and a class derived from RobotsParseHandler (used as interface with several pure virtual method to implement).
google/robotstxt: The repository contains Google’s robots.txt parser and matcher as a C++ library (compliant to C++11).

Excellent explanation of ASP.NET Core Filters with detailled schemas.
While we have achieved great performance gains in other areas, .NET still lags behind other platforms in data access benchmarks.
As an example, the TechEmpower Fortunes benchmark shows similar numbers across raw ADO.NET, Dapper and EF Core variations: throughput flatlines or even decreases as concurrent requests increase, which seems to indicate that bottlenecks are preventing efficient hardware utilization.
The performance of accessing databases using .NET should be much more competitive, and we (several people from Microsoft and the .NET developer community) are going to do something about it.
