Roundup #20: Azure SignalR Service, MSBuild.SolutionSdk, Marten 3.0, .NET on Service Fabric

Here are the things that caught my eye this week.  I’d love to hear what you found most interesting this week.  Let me know in the comments or on Twitter.

 

Azure SignalR Service

Since its introduction five years ago, SignalR has grown to be one of the most popular real-time connection technologies around the world. As applications that use SignalR scale, managing and scaling a SignalR server can become quite a bit of work.

Today, we’re announcing the general availability (GA) of the Azure SignalR Service, a fully managed SignalR service that enables you to focus on building real-time web experiences without worrying about setting up, hosting, scaling, or load balancing your SignalR server. The Azure SignalR Service supports existing libraries for ASP.NET Core, ASP.NET, Java, and JavaScript clients, opening this service to a broad array of developers.

I’ve been using the preview for a course I’m creating and the Azure SignalR Service takes all the pain of scaling away.

MSBuild.SolutionSdk

MSBuild.SolutionSdk is the equivalent of the new csproj “sdk-style” format applied to sln files.

This is a really cool idea that I’d love to see supported by Visual Studio or Jetbrains Rider.

Marten 3.0

Hey, look at that, Marten 3.0 is live on Nuget. It didn’t turn out to be a huge release, but we needed to accommodate the Npgsql 4.* dependency and I felt like that was a breaking change, so here we go. You can see the full list of bug fixes and changes in this list.
