Understanding Role-Based Access Control with ASP.NET Web APIs

When you're building an application and want to restrict access to resources and information for different kinds of users, Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) is one of the best, most structured models you can implement. One of the simplest ways to achieve RBAC in web APIs is by leveraging JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) and adding roles as claims.

In this session, join in as we discuss the importance of API security and how you can use JWTs to implement the RBAC pattern in an ASP.NET Web API and better secure your API endpoints.

Fake A Phone Call using Azure Functions and Twilio

We have all been in that situation where we are stuck chatting with someone we want to run away from but we can't. At that point, all we hope for is someone's phone call to let you pull yourself away from the absolute madness you have to deal with in the name of social behaviour!

You can never know whether your saviour shall appear in the form of a tring tring from your phone at the time, but what if I told you that you could make that "call" happen without someone else calling you anyway?

Join me in this fun session as I demonstrate how you can leverage Azure Functions with .NET and Twilio Programmable Voice to build yourself this nifty little solution.

Build AI-Enabled Apps with .NET MAUI and Azure Cognitive Services

No longer are we in the days where adding intelligence to your applications requires you to have dedicated ML/AI experience. Today, we have amazing suites of out-of-the-box AI services consumable via APIs offered by independent providers, cloud platforms, etc. today.

Therefore, in this session, join me as we discuss you can build AI-enabled apps without formal AI development knowledge using Azure Cognitive Services and .NET MAUI.

Balancing Community Health and Open Source Growth: The Contributor's Role

For the last few years, one challenge that has constantly been discussed within the open-source community is how to make open source healthier for everyone.

This isn’t to say that open source is an unhealthy space; rather, it has a much more significant positive impact than most people imagine. However, anytime a project sees a flurry of contributors trying their hands at getting in their contributions and Pull Requests, whether that is a planned occasion like Hacktoberfest, a period of the project going trending on GitHub, or just a random unplanned surge, there happens to be an overwhelming amount of activity for the project maintainers and community leaders to tackle. The truth is that for most people, contributing to open source is an activity they partake in outside their day-to-day lives, and more often than not, they aren’t equipped to deal with such surges of activity. At such points, contributors sharing the responsibility of supporting and sustaining community health makes for a better, more welcoming community for everyone.

Therefore, in this talk, we will explore what community health means in open-source communities and how contributors can play their role in making it better.

I had the opportunity to participate in a discussion on the same with the GitHub Education team: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1947516149

I have also written about this topic in the following blog: https://appwrite.io/blog/post/make-open-source-healthier
