We just submitted a PR to Microsoft to make .NET (and Jitbit Helpdesk) faster

In the world of software development, there's nothing quite as satisfying as identifying a dangerous performance issue and squashing it like a bug. That's exactly what we did recently at Jitbit, and we're pretty excited about it. We've submitted a pull request to Microsoft to share our solution with the ASP.NET Core community, and - yay! - they approved the PR and even agreed to backport the fix to the current .NET relaase. Which means that the next .NET 8.0.3 will be faster, more realiable and secure.

How we migrated a 1TB database from Win to Linux with no downtime

Our helpdesk app, both the SaaS and the self-hosted version - is powered by SQL Server. The SaaS version additionally uses S3 (to store file-attachments), Redis (to persist in-memory cache between deploys and restarts) and other fancy cloud stuff, but there's still one big ass SQL Server database at the heart of it.

And this Christmas we've migrated it to Linux.
