A time ago I wrote a post about enabling support for SqlServer Temporal tables in EF Core. Then it was EF Core 2.1. Let’s see what has changed during that time and what we can do today with EF Core 5 in terms of Temporal table support.
Recently I stumbled upon a problem that a CSS file was not minified on production in my ASP.NET MVC 5 web application. Moreover the error saying “Minification failed. Returning unminified contents.” was added to the CSS content. It turned out that it’s an old, known issue and in this post I will show you how I fixed it.
In .Net world every line of code has to be compiled before it can be executed obviously. However the compilation process occurs twice. First the Common Intermediate Language (CIL) is produced out of human readable code and it occurs just after the development process. Then the CIL is compiled into the native code specifically to be interpreted by the target machine. The letter step occurs on the fly, on client machine and is called the JIT (Just In Time) compilation.
