ASP.NET Core SignalR for Windows 10 UWP App

It has been quite sometimes I have not use ASP.NET SignalR. As you may know that currently we can use ASP.NET Core for creating WebAPI, it come to my mind to try SignalR service using ASP.NET Core and with Windows 10 UWP as the client for consuming the SignalR service. This blog is about just that, I divide the project into two, that is the SignalR service server and SignalR client which is inside Windows 10 UWP app. So let’s start.

SignalR Service Server

Let’s begin with creating the ASP.NET Core project, fire up Visual Studio 2015 with — of course .NET Core installed.

ASP.Net Core Create New Project

Once created, open the project.json file or Right-Click the References on the Solution Explorer and choose Manage NuGet packages and add the SignalR package library.

If you are looking for the English Version: Web Development Myths On Microsoft Edge

(Language: Bahasa Indonesia)

Microsoft Edge sudah tentu merupakan Browser modern untuk menggunakan HTML5 Standar Web, secara teknis mirip dengan browser IE11 (Internet Explorer 11), Chrome, Firefox, Opera dan Safari. Namun, Microsoft Edge sangat berbeda dengan browser lain, sebagai contoh tidak ada support untuk BHO (Browser Helper Object) atau dukungan (support) untuk menjalankan komponen ActiveX serta Plugin.

WordPress in Azure | Part 1 – Create WordPress Blog in less than 5 minutes (Cloud PaaS)

There are several ways to create WordPress in Microsoft Azure cloud, using PaaS (Platform as a Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service). I would like to share how I did it as a guide and show you how easy to create WordPress blog in Microsoft Azure using the cloud PaaS first. Cloud PaaS means that you only manage the application and the database. Azure PaaS is part of the Azure App Services and has the feature of elastic auto scaling, meaning you can configure the web app to automatically increases or decreases the server instances as required due to high or low traffic or by CPU performance needs. Therefore, you also only pay on what you use. In PaaS, the server infrastructure, networks, the middle-ware, the frameworks, etc. are all maintain by Azure app services. Since we only maintain the application and database, practically you can create WordPress web app in less than 5 minutes.

Well, 5 minutes is if you at least already know little bit about Azure or at least know some of the steps. But hey, I tested myself, I can create in less than 5 minutes with the condition that you already prepare for what you are going to enter, like the web app name, database name, site title, password, etc. If you are still thinking on what to enter on every step, than I believe the time will be more than 5 minutes.

Okay, this are the first title from four parts article. Here is the four title that I will create:

  1. WordPress in Azure | Part 1 – Create WordPress Blog in less than 5 minutes (Cloud PaaS)
  2. WordPress in Azure | Part 2 – Editing the WordPress PHP code using Git
  3. WordPress in Azure | Part 3 – Managing (Backup and Restore) WordPress MySQL Database
  4. WordPress in Azure | Part 4 – Configure Auto Scaling in Azure Web App
