Welcome to season 5 of the award-winning .NET Core Podcast! Check that link for proof.

Hello everyone and welcome to The .NET Core Podcast is a podcast where we reach into the core of the .NET technology stack and, with the help of the .NET community, present you with the information that you need in order to grok the many moving parts of one of the biggest cross-platform, multi-application frameworks on the planet.

I am your host, Jamie "GaProgMan" Taylor. In this episode, I talked with Carl-Hugo Marcotte about the second edition of his book "An Atypical ASP.NET Core 6 Design Patterns Guide", some of the changes he made for the second edition, and some of his top advice to developers, regardless of where they are in their career.

Along the way, we talk about the reason for writing automated tests, some top tips for refactoring, why Carl-Hugo makes a point to read chapters of technical books that cover knowledge he already has, and why I think it's a great idea to learn outside of your domain - I even share some examples of why.

The full show notes, including links to some of the things we discussed and a full transcription of this episode, can be found at
