To construct programs, the.NET framework comes with individual compilers for different programming languages like C#.
After compiling the source code, each.NET compiler generates an intermediate code, and every environment uses this intermediate code known as Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL).
In this post, we will understand what is MSIL in detail, including its role and necessities.

Tech giants like IBM, Google, and even governments around the world are investing quintillions in the quantum computing niche. Why you may ask? To solve complex and pressing issues that are unsolvable by conventional computers.
Quantum computing will disrupt every industry by transforming the way organizations safeguard data, fight diseases and even solve climate problems.
Google has recently announced that it has achieved ‘quantum supremacy’ by demonstrating its 54-qubit sycamore processor which is capable of performing an array of complex calculations in 200 seconds. …
Most of the programmers create their software/application using high-level programming languages which are human-understandable. Using that, developers build the basic logic that the application has to perform or the result that needs to be achieved using it.
Since they are in a human-understandable format, developers need not go through any special training to write the logic, apart from the basic understanding of how programming has to be done.
Typically, programmers create the source code and send it to the machine to execute it. Now, since the code is written in a high-level programming language, you have to make the machine…
Let’s start with something that most developers can relate to — we unintentionally incorporate code smell into our code, which makes our design vulnerable. In programming, code smells, also known as nasty smells, refer to any symptom in the source code of a program that may signal a larger problem.
In this post, let’s look at a type of code smell called shotgun surgery, along with its uses and benefits.

As pointed out above, shotgun surgery is a specific type…
Open-source web stacks are rapidly evolving, thanks to a wide range of features being introduced on a daily basis. Microsoft, on the other hand, is constantly updating its web application stack and has published a slew of new framework components.
Despite the fact that Microsoft’s Asp.Net is a mature framework, it lacked some essential properties such as portability, modularity, and scalability that Open Source web stacks provided. This resulted in the creation of OWIN, a definition for how an Asp.Net …
It is widely known that the adoption of cloud computing will be one of the key trends in the coming decade. No wonder it is hailed as the next big thing capable of bolstering the IT sector to its peak.
Cloud companies are ramping up their performances and expanding their territories to large data centers in the cloud, owing to its enormous potential. However, even in the cloud, data is the key and security is the topmost concern for most organizations. Even a minor breach can radiate through the different workflow stages disrupting the performance at various levels.
As cybercrimes and attacks continue to rise, businesses are investing thousands of dollars in robust security solutions like network vulnerability assessments and penetration testing to keep their data, revenue, and reputation intact from external threats.
Both penetration testing and vulnerability scanning are often wrongly thought of as one and the same. However, both are used for completely different purposes managing different levels of security and risk analysis. Vulnerability scans are performed on a more regular basis than penetration tests.
It may all seem confusing at first, but by the end of this post, you will be able to easily distinguish…
While developing any software or a product, seamless access to databases plays a very critical role. Therefore it is essential that the connection is crafted carefully. This is ORM (Object Relational Mapping) comes in handy as it helps them to access data easily. Usage of an ORM library helps you improve the pace of application development. At the same time, it simplifies and solidifies the implementations.
There are many popular ORM libraries that are used in the .NET world such as Entity Framework, NHibernate, Dapper, LLBLGen Pro, RepoDB, etc. …
A Content Delivery Network, abbreviated as CDN is an indispensable part of most modern websites and applications. Viewing content on a website or an app is often made possible via CDN. Most of us never realize that we interact with CDN on a daily basis — be it for reading news online or while shopping for your favorite products.
But what exactly is CDN and why has it found such widespread acceptance. Let’s find out.

PAM(Privileged Access Management) constitutes cybersecurity measures for establishing control over the privileged accounts i.e elevated access and permissions for any user, account, and process across an IT environment.
By devising the right level for privilege access controls, PAM helps the organization to avert or at least mitigate the intensity of the damage caused by external attacks or internal negligence.
In this post, we will look at PAM and understand why it is necessary.
