If you're developing applications in .NET, you probably heard about all the new shiny part of the framework, like Pipelines which enable you to process IO-related processing with more IO awareness, still leaving your code on quite high level. Another part of the framework that is mentioned recently are channels that are used to pass … Continue reading Channels, ring buffers and logs
This post describes my work on trying to build a faster MemoryPool for .NET called Thruster. There are existing implementations, like the one provided by System.Memory or Kestrel, the new and shiny .NET web server. Let's see what approached did I take and how it ended. What is a MemoryPool? The memory pool is a … Continue reading Thruster, building a not so fast memory pool
Why are they still working on the whole async-await thing? What is Task, Async Await, ValueTask, IValueTaskSource ? How to keep your sanity in modern .NET world?
We saw that the Delay operation is either completed or results in a never ending task, that nobody ever completes. Could we make it easier and provide a better way for delaying operation?
TL;DR We've already seen here and here that with async-await one could easily sketch an orchestration/saga for any process that should be both, robust and resilient. It's time to take a look how a scheduler for such a process could be implemented. Delay with no Task Usually, when we want to delay an action in … Continue reading Implementing a scheduler for your orchestrations
TL;DR I've already shown here that with some trickery you can write orchestrations in C# based on async-await. It's time to revisit this idea, now with a custom orchestration of mine. Show me the code! The orchestration is based on the event sourcing infrastructure built by me. This project is not public (yet) but it's … Continue reading Orchestrating processes for fun and profit
TL;DR This is a follow up post to Async pump for better throughput in Azure. Please read the first before moving forward. Feedback I've been given a lot of feedback about my Async pump post. In a few cases this blog post from Ayende was quoted as it describes exactly the same approach. You can … Continue reading Async programming model
