F# - The essentials

Long time readers of my blog know that my programming language of choice is not C# but F#. Although I don't have a lot of opportunities to use it in my day to day job, I always like to return to functional programming land whenever I can for small (side) projects.

If you never have tried F# yourself, this is a good moment to give it a try. The people from Amplifying F# released a FREE online course based on Ian Russell’s Essential F# book.

Every week a new aspect of the language is introduced and each lesson takes only 10-15 minutes. So no excuses, just give it a try. The lessons just got started, so this is the right time to still join the course.

It will make you a better programmer in general and will positively impact the way you write your C# code as well.

Help! I accidently enabled HSTS–on localhost

I ran into an issue after accidently enabling HSTS for a website on localhost. This was not an issue for the original website that was running in IIS and had a certificate configured. But when I tried to run an Angular app a little bit later on http://localhost:4200 the browser redirected me immediately to https://localhost . Whoops! That was not what I wanted in this case. To fix it, you need to go the network settings of your browser, there are available at: chrome://net-internals/#hsts edge://net-internals/#hsts brave://net-internals/#hsts Enter ‘localhost’ in the domain textbox under the Delete domain security policies section and hit Delete . That should do the trick…
