Microsoft’s annual Build conference was on this past week and there were plenty of announcements about .NET and the future of the platform. You can find the highlights in the Announcements from Build 2019 section below.
Due to all the news from Build I departed a bit from the usual format this week to exclude the More good stuff section.
I hope you have a great week!

Announcements from Build 2019

Damien shows how to persist access tokens for a trusted ASP.NET Core application which needs to access secure APIs. These tokens which are persisted are not meant for public clients, but are used for the service to service communication.
In a weird coincidence, Mike wrote a blog post along the same lines as the one from Gunnar mentioned above. His is a little different though in that it stores a username and hashed password in a config file.
Ed: It just goes to show you the possibilities are endless when rolling your own authentication mechanism.
