Switching Between .NET Core SDK Versions

In this article, we’ll learn how we can switch between the versions of the .NET Core SDK as per our needs.
If you have worked on one project that used .NET Core version 2.1 and then you installed .NET Core 3.0 Preview, you will get an SDK error while trying to run your .NET Core 2.1 project. This is because your current SDK version has changed to 3.0

Several Years Later: A Case of the Telephone Game

Remember the Telephone Game? 
You can read all about it here, but the gist is the first person is whispered a message. That person then whispers the same message (to the best of their recollection) to another person. The process continues until the last person receives the message. At that point, the last person announces the message for all to hear. The fun part of this game is to hear how much the story changes as the message is passed from person to person.

We Rebuilt Our Backend Feed Service! Here’s What I Learned

I’m a Software Engineer in Kurio (a news aggregator in Indonesia). As an aggregator application, our main job is: collecting many of our publisher partner’s websites (news or articles) then serve it to our users through our application.
How we serve this content is just like other news aggregators out there, we serve many feeds (list of content) to our users, such as feeds sorted by our top_stories logic, feeds sorted by what’s trending, or just a feed from a specific publisher or category.
