A few weeks ago I had the chance to read the this book (gifted by the author). I would like to share with you my feelings.

The author

Jürgen Gutsch is a software developer based in Basel and he is also the lead of the .NET user group in Basel. This is not his first book and maybe you know his blog http://asp.net-hacker.rocks because it's very well indexed by google and if you are googling something related to .NET, maybe you found some of his articles. 🙂

Customizing ASP.NET Core 6.0 book cover


ASP.NET Core comes packed full of hidden features for building sophisticated web applications. You'd be missing out on a lot of its capabilities by not customizing it to work for your applications. With Customizing ASP.NET Core 6.0, you'll discover techniques to help you get the most out of the framework to deliver robust applications.

I think this description on the Amazon page is perfect to describe the book and its content. Chapter by chapter a fundamental concept is explained for a middle/senior developer. The chapter helps the reader to understand some advanced topics for ASP.NET Core 6.0.

This is the table of contents:

  • Customizing Logging
  • Customizing App Configuration
  • Customizing Dependency Injection
  • Configuring and Customizing HTTPS with Kestrel
  • Configuring WebHostBuilder
  • Using Different Hosting Models
  • Using IHostedService and BackgroundService
  • Writing Custom Middleware
  • Working with Endpoint Routing
  • Customizing ASP.NET Core Identity
  • Configuring Identity Management
  • Content Negotiation Using a Custom OutputFormatter
  • Managing Inputs with Custom ModelBinder
  • Creating a Custom ActionFilter
  • Working with Caches
  • Creating Custom TagHelper

My evaluation

I can only recommend reading this book, and it is definitely a useful book to keep on your desk because it can always be useful during the development of a project.
