It’s been a while since my last post but I’m eager to come back blogging again.
I’ve started at a new job back in May supporting software development teams and since then I’ve been getting back up to speed with the .NET Framework and studying like crazy all things ASP.NET.
The ASP.NET stack has changed a lot in the ten years since the last time I looked seriously into it as a whole while preparing for certification exams. Using just user management and role management as an example, in the span of ten years ASP.NET went from ASP.NET Membership to ASP.NET Simple Membership to ASP.NET Universal Providers to ASP.NET Identity (to ASP.NET Core Identity? – I haven’t yet taken a look into that to see how different it is from its classical ASP.NET counterpart).
The good news is that for the most part it all has gone open source. I feel that not many people appreciate how much the source code worths as a learning tool.
