Another good week for new and interesting articles. There’s been a lot of useful ones this week, so much so, you can’t pick the wrong one to read. .NET community has been great this entire year and we hope we’ll continue seeing such a great selection of articles in the future too.
On the other news, BLACK FRIDAY SALE is ON! Check out a 40% discount on the Ultimate ASP.NET Core Web API Premium Package! This is by far the best price for the program we’ll have all year round, so if you’ve planned to get it, now’s the best chance.
If you’ve done that, and you just want to relax, pick any article from this list, prepare your favorite brew (coffee?), sit down, and start the weekend off the right way.
