Man holding up a glass for the New Year

With the new year upon us, I thought I would reflect on the most popular posts of 2019 on DanylkoWeb.

As I looked over the hits of these posts, I wondered what made them so interesting. Was it because of ASP.NET Core? Did people like reviews? Did people like a code technique or tutorial?

Before I present the list, I want readers to understand a technique or need assistance with ASP.NET (either Core or .NET Framework), please let me know through my contact page and I will do my best to provide a thorough post on how to complete your requirement.

A majority of these posts were written by me, but there are a select few guest posts in this list. Make sure they receive some writing-love as well for their contributions over this past year. They definitely deserve it.

Without further delay, here are the 20 most popular posts from 2019 (in descending order).
