This is a blog on my random thoughts in .NET. My name is Badrinarayanan and I live in the lovely capital city of a state in India that speaks “one of the longest surviving classical languages in the world from the available evidences”. 13.08389°N 80.27°E

My mother tongues are Tamil and C#. I work for a Fortune 500 company but this is my personal blog – anything in this blog represents purely my personal view/opinion and does not represent that of my employer!

“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants” is supposed to be a famous remark by Sir Isaac Newton in his letter to Robert Hooke. I have not seen or read his letter myself but kind of like the remark. It is natural for people to turn to www to get answers for any problems but many a times, I have felt thankful for someone who has taken the time to put the information on the web for others to be useful. This blog is just a baby step from my part to do the same. As I write this, I sincerely hope I’ll get time to blog on things others will find useful and keep this alive.

  1. Hi, I’ve ordered Pro ASP.NET Web API Security.

    Now, I want to know: Are you considering updating the book Pro http://ASP.NET Web API Security to v2?


  2. Anna, You are awesome, Today only I started learning to write web api, U helped.
    The article admired me is your about page, . . .

  3. Thank you. I do not plan to write a book on these topics. I’m sure you are already aware but just in case. CQRS Journey is a good resource on CQRS. For unit testing, “The art of Unit Testing” by Roy is a great book.

  4. Hi , Badrinarayanan!
    I’m helping your books, very much. (Web API Practical ASP.NET, ASP.NET Web API security ).
    “Owin & Katana” book has not yet been read.
    I do not know how to contact you , so I’ll write here. Are you planning to write another book? And are there any plans to write a book on CQRS & Unit Testing. That would be cool.

  5. Hi.
    I have searched the entire web for a pdf version of your book OWIN and Microsoft Katana 101 to buy all to no avail. The best I could get was a kindle version and don’t own a kindle so that is useless to me.

    So I was wondering if you knew of any so you could point me there and I could buy the book?

    I have been trying to wrap my head around Owin (and Microsoft’s Katana project) and have found rave reviews about your book being the go-to resource for a better understanding of them both, hence my present dilemma. So I am sort of counting on you, good sir!


  6. Hi I’ve ordered Pro ASP.NET Web API Security ( btw I’ve also ordered
