Once again, I found this chapter full of useful ideas. However, the map sample code (brilliant as it is), was a bit complex for me to understand the concepts. But, I could strip down the sample code to just retrieve the store names from the appsettings file and display them on the Home/Index page as simple html. It then becomes clear what bits of code are needed to get at some "Secrets".

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the comment. Its that eternal struggle between having something simple enough that the underlying concepts are clear, but interesting enough/practical usages so that people don't get bored with just another list displayed on the screen! Thanks for flagging that this may have been a step too far smilie

I would like to see a kind of alternative opinion about design decisions of ASPNETCORE team.
I think adding some references for consideration wouldn't hurt:


P.S. I like how you give a general overview and then go to details, and reiterate important things. Thanks.
