Many of the posts here on the Twilio blog provide just-in-time learning to help you accomplish a specific software development task, like integrating Twilio Verify into ASP.NET Core Identity. These posts give you the information to get a task done quickly.
We also publish other posts that, taken collectively, help you make architectural decisions and build whole systems of software, not just individual modules. These related posts can rightfully be considered “long reads”. You’ll want to set aside time to get the most out of reading the posts and building their case study projects.
We’re introducing Deep Dive posts to make it easier for you to access these professional development resources. Sometimes a Deep Dive will be a series of posts by a single author. On other occasions we’ll curate a list of posts from a variety of internal and external sources. On every occasion they ...
Developers Developers Developers: Our Favorite .NET Tutorials for May 2019
Over the last month we've climbed out of numerous programming rabbit holes thanks to fellow .NET developers writing public tutorials for the community. We've rounded up some of our favorites in this post.
Each tutorial listed below is easy enough for beginner-level programmers to follow. More experienced developers should be able to breeze through the code while building a useful project or using these tutorials as convenient refreshers.

Making complex authentication easier
Are you excited about authentication? If so, please tweet us, you are a delightfully special breed of developer. Here are a few great authentication tutorials for those folks that aren't as stoked about the topic and who just want to get the sign in page working.
Validating phone numbers effectively with C# and the .NET frameworks
Validating user input is important to the security and proper operation of any software application. This is particularly true of data like phone numbers, which are typically private data used to deliver both application functionality, such as messaging, and security features like 2-factor authentication.
Application development frameworks, including the .NET Framework and .NET Core provide data validation capabilities to make it easier to handle standard data types more robustly. While the .NET frameworks provide for validating phone numbers, the capabilities are limited, particularly with respect to internationalization (“i18n”).
Fortunately, there is a open source library,
libphonenumber-csharp, that provides extensive resources for validating and manipulating phone numbers of all types. It’s derived from an open source library created by Google. This post shows how you can implement
libphonenumber-csharpin your .NET projects and easily leverage this powerful functionality.
