Hi All, We had enough people RSVP so the meeting is on for tonight - see you there! In honor of Thanksgiving, let's have our November meeting a week later than usual - on Wed, Nov 28th. Let's talk about logging in ASP.NET core and .NET core! I know, it doesn't sound too exciting but when it comes to troubleshooting especially in production, everyone knows how important logging is. .NET core has introduced a nice, clean, streamlined API for logging which is also used throughout .NET core itself. The topic pulls in some interesting related areas which we'll touch on including: - ASP.NET Core configuration - Dependency Injection - Hosting (Web Host) (Generic Host - introduced in .NET 2.1) - Structured Logging - Analytics and Machine Learning - Docker, containers, and microservices We'll look at how to configure logging for Web and Console applications. We'll look at log filtering options. We'll look at structured logging and how to use Serilog as a logging provider. We'll look at tools like Seq and the Elastic stack - ElasticSearch, LogStash, Kibana (which we'll run in docker on Windows 10) in order to centralize and then analyze and visualize the information. See you there! Have a great Thanksgiving! Mike
