Final Projects at Ruppin Software Engineering Workshop 2017

This is the fourth year that I’m running the Integrative Software Engineering Workshop at the Ruppin Academic Center As such I had the privilege to mentor the teams and guide them as they build a software project from scratch. The purpose is to give the students a taste of how a real project is being developed in the real world and let them experience all the steps involved. From finding an idea and making the analysis, and then implementing and delivering to the customer (me in this case). You may want to read about the projects from previous years, you...

Easily supporting multiple target frameworks (TFMs) with VS2017 and Nuget

April 5, 2017

In VS2017 it much easier now to support multiple frameworks inside a single .csproj file. When you create a new project VS2017 (that target .NET Core or .NET Standard) this is what you'll get inside your *.csproj <Project Sdk="Microsoft.NET.Sdk"> <PropertyGroup> <TargetFramework>netstandard1.4</TargetFramework> </PropertyGroup> </Project> Cool right? A lot of the boilerplate configuration was removed in order to make the MSBuild format clean and readable. By default, all the files inside your project folder will be added. If you want to make adjustment you can always add (or remove some of the files). For example, this is how it will look if...

October 13, 2016

This error kept me busy for almost two days, so i thought it would be best to describe the steps i took to fix it Make sure that the erlang cookie file (.erlang.cookie) is configured correctly in all places. i.e. %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH% and %SYSTEMROOT%. it should contain the same value in all places Open the RabbitMQ command prompt with Administrator privileges Remove the RabbitMQ service by using the command: rabbitmq-service remove  Navigate to %APPDATA%\RabbitMQ\db Delete everything (make sure you have a backup just in case) Go back to the command promp and install the service with the command:...

Using Autofac Aggregate Services

September 13, 2016

I really like using Autofac, it’s one of the most productive libraries I know, and it’s so much fun to discover new features. Aggregate Services is Autofac feature that allows you to wrap a set of dependencies into a single aggregate without the need to implement a concrete type for it. Consider the following case where you have a base class that has dependencies on a few other services, and two derived classes: class BaseLicenseGenerator:ILicenseGenerator { //members public BaseLicenseGenerator(ILogger logger, IUserRepository userRepository, ILicenseRepository licenseRepository) { ...
