Ecco il primo di una serie di post settimanali (almeno questa è la speranza) dove potere trovare alcuni link ad articoli e post che ritengo particolarmente interessanti. Così se qualcuno di voi è un pò assente dai social, slack o altri canali, possa trovare qui le ultime novità. L’idea sarebbe anche di aggiungere un mio personale commento ad ogni singolo articolo, ma meglio non pretendere troppo…almeno per ora. :-)

  • Why isn’t my session state working in ASP.NET Core? Session state, GDPR, and non-essential cookies

    In this post I described an issue that I’ve been asked about several times, where developers find that their session state isn’t saving correctly. This is commonly due to the GDPR features introduced in ASP.NET Core 2.1 for cookie consent and non-essential cookies.

    I showed an example of the issue in action, and how it differs between a 2.0 app and a 2.2 app. I described how session state relies on a session cookie that is considered non-essential by default, and so is not written to the response until a user provides consent. […]
