Today we are going to learn about Microservice architecture and its implementation using Ocelot API Gateway in ASp.Net Core — 3.1. We all know the benefits of using Microservices for large-scale applications.

Microservice Architecture — Overview

There are two possible ways to build and structure the applications:

  1. Monolith Architecture
  2. Microservices Architecture

Monolith Architecture

Monolith is like a big container, wherein all the software components of an app are assembled and tightly coupled; i.e each component fully depends on the other. There are advantages and disadvantages to Monolith. Compared to Microservices the advantages are less in Monolith Architecture.

First of all, let’s have a clear look at Dapper and how it will be useful in our Core API. I think most of us know what Dapper is, but this article is for those who don’t know about Dapper.

These days everyone wants to know how much time we spend on each task and also what task took the most time in developing and building the applications and products using Visual Studio. It also saves time that we are working on our projects.

We have many tools in the market which help us to get the result. Here is the extension which helps us in tracking all of this.

What is the extension? It’s Visual Time Spent.

Let’s go deep into this..!

We assume that the reader knows the basics of debugging in Visual Studio but we will dive into some major concepts in debugging.

Many developers handle their debugging sessions with this powerful-enough knowledge kit. However, Visual Studio Debugging tools have much more to offer. Here is a list of Visual Studio Debugging productivity tips. Note that those tips and shortcuts have been validated with Visual studio 2019 16.6 with no extension installed.

Run to Cursor

With the shortcut Ctrl+F10, you can tell the debugger to run until the line pointed by the cursor.
