Hello, I'm Jason
I live with my family in the rolling hills of Northeastern Pennsylvania. I'm a web developer by trade, but have broad experience in various business areas. Want to know more about me?
Over the past two days, I have posted about building APIs using GraphQL and .NET Core using the Hot Chocolate NuGet package. In the first part of the tutorial, we covered how a GraphQL schema is constructed, getting started using .NET Core and Hot Chocolate, and building our first GraphQL query object using Banana Cake Pop. In the second part of the tutorial, we covered how to add data to our data source using GraphQL mutations and tested GraphQL end to end using Banana Cake Pop. However, Hot Chocolate is not the only way to interact with GraphQL in .NET.Read More
One of the recent projects I was involved in required our teams to build APIs that we’d consume in a customer facing web application. Those same APIs would also be exposed to third-party partners. However, both consumers of the APIs needed a slightly different approach. The internal team required APIs that were very granular so that they had complete control over the flow the customers would follow on the front end. This would also allow them to be quite nimble in changing direction without the need of an architecture redesign or heavy service lift. I like to call this level of APIs, micro-services. I view this as true micro-services as opposed to using that term as just another marketing buzz word. The external, third-party required “roll-up” services so that their application was not as chatty as ours.Read More

For years, Bootstrap was the most widely used CSS framework and is still the 7th highest starred open source project on GitHub. It originally started by a couple of developers at Twitter before being released as an open source project in 2011. However, many have started to slowly abandon Bootstrap. It has been 6 years since the last major release (officially today) and Bootstrap 5 is still in Alpha and includes many breaking changes including, but not limited to:Read More
Last month, I shared how to create a
Readme.md file for your GitHub profile. This little hack allows you to add more content to your GitHub profile. If you’re struggling to find additional content to place in your readme, consider adding additional GitHub statistics to your ReadMe. You can do that by using a pre-built statistic generator.
