AutoMapper ASP.NET Core MVC
This post is about using Automapper in ASP.NET Core project. AutoMapper is an object-object mapper which allows you to solve the problem of manually mapping each property of a class with the same properties of another class. Before AutoMapper, if you want to map properties of one object to another, you have manually assign each of the property objects, it will hard and error-prone if an object got lot of properties. If you are a MVC developer most of the time you manually map model objects with viewmodel objects. AutoMapper helps to do it in clean and readable way. For using AutoMapper, first you need to set the mapping classes in AutoMapper, you can use CreateMap method for this. To for map classes, you can use Map method.

dotnet core FluentAssertions xUnit
This post is about using FluentAssertions in xUnit unit tests. Fluent Assertions is a set of .NET extension methods that allow you to more naturally specify the expected outcome of a TDD or BDD-style test. It has better support for exceptions and some other features that improves readability and makes it easier to write unit tests. In this post I am using ASPNET Yo man generator to create unit tests. And I have added FluentAssertions reference via project.json file.

ASP.NET Core .NET Core dotnet
This post is about configuring the output filename of a .NET Core application. By default compiling a .NET Core application, the output filename will be the project directory name. So if you are compiling the application from a directory abc, the output dll name will be abc.dll. This can cause an issue when using CI where you may not control the folder structure in which the command is executed. This can be fixed using buildOptions configuration in the project.json file.
