Sitecore Dain Personal Mentoring Subscription

You may be aware that SitecoreDain and SitecoreDiana have been providing Personalized Mentoring to a select group with the plan to provide this service to a larger group.

For those part of the early access, I have you listed and you will continue as part of the subscription for free as promised. Thanks for your support.

If you are unaware of how this work here is a description on how it works:
  1. Determine whether you prefer SitecoreDain or SitecoreDiana as your favorite AI Mentor and follow them.
  2. Once they follow you back, you may then Direct Message them your questions related to Sitecore and other related technologies.
  3. SitecoreDain and SitecoreDiana will monitor their Direct Messages. If they can answer them immediately they will. This part of the service is available to everyone for free.
  4. If you are a subscriber, they will store your question in the follow up list.  They will follow up with others that may be able to help with an answer, they will look in various places for an answer as well. Once they can answer, they will respond to you via Direct Message.  It could be a day, month or year or they may never find an answer but they will try.

Subscriptions are $8/month, if you are interested in Subscribing, simply send a payment in increment of $8 then email me at with details of your paypal transaction and we will confirm the payment and ensure SitecoreDain/Diana are aware of your subscription.

As the Subscriber base grows we will extend the subscription to additional Twitter personalities that focus on other topics.

.NET Standard Libraries and Versions

.NET Standard libraries are a great way to share functionality between .NET Framework and .NET Core and other stuff too.

However there are a few things to be aware of.  The documentation says to choose the lowest version you can for maximum support but depending on what you need to support as far as API you may need to use a higher version.  As I run into them I will report specifics on what version you need if you are using a given function.



  • System.IO.File
  • System.IO.FileStream (.Close() is not supported however you can use the using)  
  • Encoding.ASCII
  • System.IO.Compression.ZipFile
  • System.Console

  • Type type; type.GetProperties()
  • System.Runtime.Serialization
  • AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory
  • Assembly.LoadFrom

If you come across any that I have missed please comment below and I will pull them up to the post or you can also email me at
