Running samples for RCommon


Suggested Reading & Courseware

There is a lot to do with RCommon. It can be used simply as a library of extensions/helpers to assist you with day-to-day programming, or you can build substantially complicated solutions from it. Our samples will focus on some of the heavier lifting done when building loosely coupled, future proofed applications.

Our "Clean Architecture with CQRS" sample was built from an existing educational solution which also happens to have a Udemy course available for it. We don't have anything to do with the courseware but we like it. This is a good place to start as it will provide a straight forward approach to building a loosely coupled application using patterns like CQRS, Mediator, Unit of Work, Repository Pattern, and more. RCommon extends this sample by demonstrating how easy, and efficient it is to use our persistence libraries along with our data services to implement unit of work.
