Hi! By day, I'm a .NET and open source enthusiast and a Microsoft Visual Studio and Development Technologies MVP. By night, I'm a husband and father. Somewhere in between the two I write stuff here.

MSBuild Loggers And Logging Events

How to easily write cross platform MSBuild loggers.

I recently learned all about how MSBuild logging works and was surprised at how powerful it is. I was also disappointed how little information there is on the topic (though the docs are quite good). In this post I'll discuss what MSBuild logging is and how you can write your own cross-platform logger that can be plugged into any build process.

Announcing Discover .NET

Awesome .NET open source and community resources.

After what seems like an eternity in development, I am thrilled to announce the launch of Discover .NET. The site is an attempt to improve discoverability in the .NET ecosystem by collecting information on topics like projects, issues, blogs, groups, events, and resources.

Blazor, Razor, WebAssembly, and Mono

How the pieces fit together.

Blazor is an exciting new web framework from the ASP.NET team that uses Razor, WebAssembly, and Mono to enable the use of .NET on the client. There’s been a lot of excitement about the possibilities this presents, but there’s also been just as much confusion about how these various parts fit together. In this post I’ll attempt to clarify things and show you exactly what each of these technologies do and how they work together to enable .NET in your browser.
