Are you looking at all the layoffs and uncertainty going on and wondering if your company is the next to cut back? Or, maybe you're a freelancer or entrepreneur who is trying to figure out how to deliver more value to gain or retain customers? Mani Vaya joins Charles Max Wood to discuss the one thing that both of them use to more than double their productivity on a daily basis. Mani has read 1,000's of productivity books over the last several years and has formulated a methodology for getting more done, but found that he lacked the discipline to follow through on his plans. The he found the one thing that kept him on track and made him so productive that he is now getting all of his work done and was able to live the life he wants.

In this episode we dig into a few technologies that can be used together to great effect. We have discussed Backend for Frontend (BFF) before but in this episode the focus is a bit different.
Diyaz Yakubov comes on the show this week to talk about a few tools he's using to make his life easier at work. We talk about NDepend - a code analyser that you can use on your IDE or CI/CD pipeline to give you recommendations on your code structure and then we move onto C4Model - a new graphical notation language and SharpLab - a neat little online code playground that can convert your code to IL or ASM.
Jakub Chodounsky from the C# Digest newsletter joins us this week. We talk about why he started the mailing list and how he's managed to build up a subscriber base of over 24k.

We also go into some of these recent blog articles and talk about some open-source projects that he thinks is fairly neat.
.NET has been cross-platform for a number of years now starting with the release of .NET Core. Most of the developers that we know work on Windows computers so we don't have first or second hand knowledge of using .NET on other operating systems. Today that is going to change. Maarten Merken has been doing .NET development on a Mac for more than two years and he joins us on the podcast to discuss his experience. We talk about different versions of .NET, debugging, virtualization, IDE's and more. When it comes to IDE's Maarten feels like JetBrains Rider is the best cross-platform IDE out there. Are you doing cross-platform development with .NET? If not, have you thought about trying it? Let us know on Twitter at @dotnet_Podcast.
"I thought WPF was dead" is usually one of the first things that Kevin Bost hears when discussing today's topic. WPF is not dead. In fact, WPF is supported by .NET 6 and a plethora of third-party apps, extensions and packages. Kevin has been working with WPF for a long time and has become an expert on the framework. In today's episode we discuss some of the strengths and weaknesses of WPF, competing frameworks, open-source projects and the path forward. If you need to develop desktop apps for Windows, WPF is still the most mature framework out there. Have you worked with WPF? Are you currently developing applications with WPF? Let us know on Twitter at @dotnet_Podcast.
Our jobs are hectic and there are always multiple priorities we have to stay on top of. Mohammed Osman joins us on the show and runs us through the tools and methodologies he uses to stay productive both as an individual and also on a team.
If the title of this episode didn't give it away... we are talking about logging into and accessing the content in web applications. Albert Starreveld spends a lot of his time implementing authentication and authorization workflows for his clients. There are a lot of factors that determine how to handle these implementations correctly. Are you still using role-based authorization? What identity provider are you using? Are you using SSO? Are you using claims/scopes? Do you know how to set up claims transformations? These are just some of the questions to ask when dealing with authentication and authorization. In this episode, we discuss these questions and more with Albert. Have you had to implement auth in a web application? How did it go? Let us know on Twitter at @dotnet_Podcast.
Chris Sainty returns to the podcast to discuss the release of his book, Blazor in Action, and more Blazor goodness. We begin this episode talking about writing and publishing a technical book including what it took to get the book over the finish line. There are a lot of moving parts to a technical book especially if the book contains code samples. Next we get into specific questions about Blazor like hosted vs standalone, razor files or code behind and more. We even get into a discussion about MediatR and how it can benefit your codebase whether it is a Blazor application or not.

Today's episode has more Blazor goodness. The panelists discuss the differences that one little check box can make when creating a new Blazor Wasm project.
Dennis Doomen returns to the podcast to talk with us about open source projects. We discuss some of the latest milestones for Fluent Assertions and some of the positives and negatives of managing a popular open source project. While companies and developers benefit from open source projects they don't always view the open source community the same way. Dennis shares his thoughts on the subject and Shawn and Caleb talk about how their companies use open source. We also talk about different ways to sponsor an open source project and some of the communities that can grow up around an open source project.
Class Diagrams are a very great way to document your system, inspect and understand the relationships between the classes and plan refactorings and disseminate knowledge inside the team. In this episode, Edson Moisinho discusses using PlantUML - an open-source tool that allows generating many types of UML diagrams from plain text.
All frameworks have their quirks. As a framework matures some of the quirks go away but every framework seems to have one or two things that you have to work around. When writing demo or proof of concept code you may not run into these quirks. They only surface when you need to deploy your code in another environment. In this episode the panelists discuss a Blazor quirk when working with different environments. Blazor does not handle appsettings.json or ASPNETCORE_ENVIRONMENT like other parts of .NET. Listen to this episode to find out more.
Today we talk with Anthony Trad - he lays his case for why layering the repository pattern over Entity Framework is sometimes not a best idea for your codebase. Depending on the context, you could well just be over engineering. After that, we tackle a couple of other patterns such as the specification pattern and the mediator pattern and talk about when it is and is not appropriate to use them.
