This is a short introduction into Dependency Injection for those who are new to dotnet core and C#, with an attempt to explain what it is, and how it works.
Applications feel more optimised when their binaries, or set of binaries are small. With dotnet core 3.0 there are some features built in that help facilitate this.
Something that annoyingly does not come as standard in the dotnet core console application template, and, it is not documented anywhere with Microsoft is: appsettings.json. This comes as standard with ASP.NET Core applications, but no other applications, and the thing is, it is very simple to add to any dotnet core application.
Everybody has heard of the term “microservice”, but not many people know what they are, how they work, or how to implement one.

Something really annoys me about jQuery UI and how its markup is laid out, especially around tabs.
I wanted to search and replace every file in a directory tree and find a URL that linked to /web-design and remove that part of the URL, and i also wanted to find the phrase “Web Design” in a link and replace it with “Affordable Web Design”.
Usually i would have to go through each individual file via SSH or FTP and then open the file, make the edits, save the file and re-upload the file. The problem with that is, i needed to do this for over 15,000 files on over 3000 web sites, and that isn’t something i wanted to do.
