This is my blog, where I write about stuff that interests me such as .NET, Rust, CI/CD and technology in general. I am a husband and a father, and I enjoy contributing to Open Source projects.

Debugging an UWP store app with WinDbg

I was encountering a rather irritating bug a couple of days ago that only manifested itself when built via the native toolchain in release mode. I couldn't get it to manifest itself when running from Visual Studio for some reason and the problem occurred so early in the app's lifecycle that I didn't have time to create a minidump of the process.


Using build counters in Azure DevOps

We recently migrated some builds from TeamCity to Azure DevOps at my client, and couldn't find a feature analog to TeamCity's %build.counter% which we've been using to get automatically incremented version numbers for artifacts.


Generating API clients using AutoRest

This blog post looks at automatically generating an HTTP API client from a OpenAPI specification (formerly swagger) using AutoRest.

We will also use another tool called Swashbuckle which is an ASP.NET Core library that allows us to annotate our controllers with metadata that is used to generate OpenAPI specifications.
