CLR Threads Via C# Part 1 – Thread Creation And The System.Threading.Thread Class

In this post I cover the basics of CLR threads, the System.Threading.Thread class, and thread creation and lifecycle in C# via the CLR, this is part 1 in a multi-part series on threading in the CLR.

CLR Threads Via C# Part 2 – The Thread Pool

In the last post I talked about the basics of CLR threads by taking a look at the Thread class. We discussed background and foreground threads as well, and that dovetails nicely into the thread pool, so I wanted to go ahead and cover the thread pool in this next part.

CLR Threads Via C# Part 3 – Race Conditions, Atomic Instructions With Interlocked, and Monitors

Part 3 of the CLR multi-threading series where I discuss shared resources, critical sections, race conditions, atomic instructions, the interlocked class and monitors. In the last post, we discussed the thread pool, and in the post prior to that, we discussed the System.Threading.Thread class.

Level Up Your Log Files

Analysing log files with a text editor takes a lot of time and patience. LogViewPlus does a better job because it parses your log files and understands the data. This gives you filtering and navigation options beyond those available in a typical text editor. Use a text editor to edit text.

Introducing Miscreant.NET and Noise.NET

One of the most common cryptographic tasks that programmers face is data encryption. Modern symmetric cryptography is built around AEAD (authenticated encryption with associated data) ciphers. If used correctly (i.e.

YOLO Object Detection

You Only Look Once - this object detection algorithm is currently the state of the art, outperforming R-CNN and it's variants. I'll go into some different object detection algorithm improvements over the years, then dive into YOLO theory and a programmatic implementation using Tensorflow!Code for th

Exercises in Programming Style

In the book club at work, we recently finished reading Exercises in Programming Style by Cristina Videira Lopes. The book consists of a simple program implemented in 33 different programming styles. It is a great way of showing the different styles, and the book was quite popular in the book club.

The ‘in’-modifier and the readonly structs in C#

C# 7.2 got two very important features for high-performance scenarios -- the readonly structs and the in parameters. But to understand why this additions are so important and how they're related to each other we should look back in history. As you probably know, the .

C# 7 - Jon Skeet

C# 7.0 has been out for a while now - but how well do you know it? With tuples, decomposition, pattern matching, ref locals, ref returns, local methods and more, there's a lot to learn. In this session I'll conduct a tour of all of the new features, as well as looking at when I've found them us

Old csproj to new csproj: Visual Studio 2017 upgrade guide

You may have heard the buzz: .NET Core went from the project.json to csproj file format, and the new csproj format is leaner, easier to read, and adds new features. But what about your .
