  2. Operation Not Legal in the Current State - Debugging ASP.NET Core Web Applications

    The other evening I was playing around with an ASP.NET Core application. When I started debugging it, I immediately saw an error message pop up that said It was a bit of a head scratcher, so I decided to restart the debug session and see if the problem resolved itself. This didn't help and I saw the same error again.I also saw that my Chrome browser had started up, but it wasn't showing my web page.

Glyphfriend would just serve everything it knew about. This has generally been regarded as a bad move, and thus library filtering is...
  6. Custom user roles and role-based authorization in ASP.NET core

    I've recently been trying to contribute to the developer community, in more ways than I previously have. One of the areas I decided to delve into, is spending more time on tech forums and resources like StackOverflow.  Well not for asking questions or checking for answers, but more for answering as many questions as I possibly can. The aim is to provide answers primarily to questions budding developers are asking. so Let's hope I do a lot of that as time goes on. Hey, I might...
