In C#, Task.Delay and Thread.Sleep are both used to introduce delays or pauses in the execution of your code, but they have different use cases and implications.

In summary, use Task.Delay when working with asynchronous code and you want to avoid blocking the current thread. Use Thread.Sleep when you explicitly want to block the current thread, but be cautious about using it in scenarios where responsiveness is important, such as in GUI applications. In modern C# applications, with the widespread use of async/await, Task.Delay is often the more appropriate choice.

Further Resources:

The Thread.Sleep Method Suspends the current thread for the specified amount of time.

  • Thread.Sleep is a synchronous method that blocks the current thread for the specified amount of time.
  • It's generally used in non-async scenarios or when dealing with multi-threading where you explicitly want to pause the execution of the current thread.
  • It can introduce responsiveness issues, especially in GUI applications, as it will freeze the UI during the sleep period.


void MyMethod()
    // Do something before the delay
    Thread.Sleep(1000); // Sleep for 1000 milliseconds (1 second)
    // Do something after the delay
.NET by Patrik
...see more

The Task.Delay Method creates a task that will complete after a time delay.

  • Task.Delay is generally preferred when working with asynchronous programming using async and await.
  • It returns a Task that represents a time delay.
  • It doesn't block the calling thread. Instead, it allows the thread to be released and continue with other work while waiting for the specified time to elapse.
  • It's more suitable for scenarios where you want to introduce a delay without blocking the execution of the current method or freezing the user interface in GUI applications.


async Task MyMethod()
    // Do something before the delay
    await Task.Delay(1000); // Delay for 1000 milliseconds (1 second)
    // Do something after the delay

In C#, you can replace multiple white spaces with a single white space using regular expressions. You can use the Regex class from the System.Text.RegularExpressions namespace to achieve this. Here's an example:

using System;
using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

class Program
    static void Main()
        string inputString = "This   is   a    sample    string   with   multiple   spaces.";

        // Use regular expression to replace multiple white spaces with a single white space
        string result = Regex.Replace(inputString, @"\s+", " ");

        Console.WriteLine("Original string: " + inputString);
        Console.WriteLine("Modified string: " + result);

In this example, the \s+ regular expression pattern matches one or more white spaces, and the Regex.Replace method replaces these occurrences with a single white space.

EF Core by Patrik

Make EF Core update only the updated properties by turning the disconnected scenario to connected.

public void SaveBook(Book book)
    // Here, 'book' is the book with the changed Title.
    using(var context = new TestContext())
        var dbBook = context.Books.Find(book.ID);

        // Copy book's property values to dbBook.


There may be good reasons to prefer the latter method above the former.

Instruct EF Core to create a migration named InitialCreate:

Add-Migration InitialCreate

EF Core will create a directory called Migrations in your project, and generate some files. It's a good idea to inspect what exactly EF Core generated - and possibly amend it - but we'll skip over that for now.

EF Core by Patrik

You can remove the latest migration with the following command:

You can list all existing migrations as follows:

Create a database and create your schema from the migration. This can be done via the following:


That's all there is to it - your application is ready to run on your new database, and you didn't need to write a single line of SQL. Note that this way of applying migrations is ideal for local development, but is less suitable for production environments - see the Applying Migrations page for more info.

OriginalString and AbsoluteUri have different behaviors.

AbsoluteUri does escaping

Uri uri = new Uri(" world");

// world

//  <--  different

AbsoluteUri doesn't support relative URIs

var uri = new Uri("/test.aspx?v=hello world", UriKind.Relative);

// /test.aspx?v=hello world

// InvalidOperationException: This operation is not supported for a relative URI.
.NET by Patrik
...see more

In .NET, the System.Uri class is used to represent URIs. You can create a Uri object by passing a URI string to its constructor. The Uri class provides various properties and methods for working with different components of the URI, such as the scheme, host, path, query, and fragment.

Here's a simple example in C#:

// Creating a Uri object
Uri uri = new Uri("");

// Accessing components of the URI
Console.WriteLine($"Scheme: {uri.Scheme}");
Console.WriteLine($"Host: {uri.Host}");
Console.WriteLine($"Path: {uri.AbsolutePath}");
Console.WriteLine($"Query: {uri.Query}");

This example demonstrates creating a Uri object from a URL string and accessing different components of the URI using properties like Scheme, Host, AbsolutePath, and Query.

Make Axios send cookies in its requests automatically.

You can use the withCredentials property.

axios.get(BASE_URL + '/todos', { withCredentials: true });

Also it is possible to force credentials to every Axios requests

axios.defaults.withCredentials = true

Or using credentials for some of the Axios requests as the following code

const instance = axios.create({
   withCredentials: true,
   baseURL: BASE_URL

Arrays are ordered collections of values, and they are perhaps the most commonly used data structure in JavaScript. Elements in an array can be accessed by their index, and arrays can hold values of different data types.

let myArray = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
console.log(myArray[0]); // Accessing the first element


...see more

Objects in JavaScript are collections of key-value pairs. They are versatile and can be used to represent a wide range of data structures. Objects are often used for creating dictionaries, maps, and records.

let person = {
    name: "Maria",
    age: 28,
    city: "New York"
console.log(; // Accessing a property

Keys are always strings (or Symbols, introduced in ES6). When you use non-string values as keys in an object, JavaScript implicitly converts them to strings.

Objects are generally used for a simple dictionary-like structure with string keys.

The following code shows modifying of list2 does not affect list1 because list2 is a separate copy of list1.

List<string> list1 = new List<string>();
List<string> list2 = new List<string>(list1);

list2.Add("Item A");

Console.WriteLine("List1 elements:");
list1.ForEach(item => Console.WriteLine(item));

This will output list1 without any item.

List1 elements:

Explanation of copying the List

You can use the List<T> constructor with the original list as an argument to create a new list that is a separate copy of the original list. This constructor creates a new list with the same elements as the original list.

.NET by Patrik
...see more

To illustrate the issue the following code assigns list1 directly to list2.

List<string> list1 = new List<string>();
List<string> list2 = list1;

list2.Add("Item A");

Console.WriteLine("List1 elements:");
list1.ForEach(item => Console.WriteLine(item));

This will output the list1 elements and show 'Item A'.

List1 elements:
Item A

As you can see, modifying list2 also modified list1.

Explanation of direct assignment issue

When you assign one list to another using list2 = list1, you're not creating a new list. Instead, both list1 and list2 will point to the same list in memory. Any changes made to one list will be reflected in the other because they are essentially the same list.

In this example, you can see how you can manually manage a transaction around your database operations, providing more fine-grained control when needed. However, for most scenarios, the default behavior of wrapping SaveChanges in a transaction is sufficient.

using (var dbContext = new YourDbContext())
    using (var transaction = dbContext.Database.BeginTransaction())
            // Perform your database operations here


            // If everything is successful, commit the transaction
        catch (Exception ex)
            // Handle exceptions and optionally roll back the transaction

In this example, you can see how you can manually manage a transaction around your database operations, providing more fine-grained control when needed. However, for most scenarios, the default behavior of wrapping SaveChanges in a transaction is sufficient.

Cultivate a Growth Mindset

Vasily Alekseyev was tricked into lifting 500 pounds over his head.

Until 1970, many weightlifters had only come close to cracking that psychological barrier.

So when his trainers told him that the bar was loaded with slightly less than 500 pounds, a weight he’d lifted before, he threw it up like a matchstick.

Only they had lied—he’d actually lifted 500.5 pounds. Over the next seven years, he continued to smash records, topping out at 564 before retiring.

Because seeing is believing, many others started lifting 500+ soon after.

Remember Roger Bannister? Until 1954, everyone believed a human couldn't run a mile in under four minutes. Then Roger did it, and his record stood for only 46 days. In the next 50 years, more than a thousand runners beat the four-minute mile.

What changed? Only a belief in what’s possible.

Reasons why singletasking...

Our society places great value on multitasking. So, too, are our work environments designed for multitasking: Now more than ever, we use computers and networks that offer instant messaging, email, and other "productive" tools. We are constantly jumping back and forth between them.

Multitasking includes three different types:

Performing two or more tasks simultaneously.

Switching back and forth between tasks.

Performing a series of tasks in rapid succession.

While this way of working seems normal to many people, multitasking is a disadvantage. If we use single-tasking instead and consciously approach each project "task-by-task," we can be very productive.

The fastest way to get many things done is to do one thing at a time.

Score with authenticity in...

In the job interview, it is important to score points with professional competence and personality. In recent years, soft skills have become increasingly important compared to pure hard skills. Companies are looking for a "team fit" rather than a pure "skill fit. The problem with personality traits is that, in comparison to hard skills, they cannot be proven with a certificate. Companies are therefore not only looking for personalities. They are looking for personalities that are as authentic as possible. Here I explain how you can present yourself as authentically as possible.
