TL;DR - I'm getting burned out supporting StructureMap, but it's still very heavily used and I'm really hoping to recruit some new blood to eventually take the project over from me. I've been mulling over whether or not I want to continue development of StructureMap. At this point, I feel like the 3.0 and 4.0...
The second talk was a deep tour of Pattern matching in C# 7. In this talk, I went through the new syntax for patterns, the extensions to the is expression, and the switch statement. I discussed the patterns that are currently supported: the constant pattern, the type pattern, and the var pattern.
There are several reasons why it makes sense to build super-lightweight HTTP services (or, despite all the baggage the word brings, "microservices").

Editorial Note: I originally wrote this post for the SmartBear blog. Few things, I'd say, strike boredom into the developer heart faster than the subject of documentation. Does anyone out there really just love wrapping up development on a feature and then cranking out a Word document with a bunch of screen shots and step ...

Microsoft has announces a bunch of updates to Azure Logic Apps. If you're note familiar with Azure Logic Apps, they provide a "no-code" solution for using a WYSIWYG (or visual) designer that allows you to build and configure business process workflow automation via drag-n-drop actions.

Since C APIs are ambiguous, in some cases ObjectiveSharpie will generate some diagnostics. In most cases it will flag methods that have to be bound with the [Verify]. This attribute is used as an indicator on your source code that you need to manually audit the binding, perhaps checking the documentation and adjust the P/Invoke signature accordingly.

I wrote this article here where I talk about how to debug and troubleshoot an Azure Bot service. Since the development approaches are very similar between the Bot Service and an Azure Function, I wonder if this feature will ever support the Bot Service. It would be much easier doing that versus the example I...
