IHttpModule Things I have noticed

Something I have learnt today whilst playing with is that when the Init method is called you shouldn't access the Context method the HttpAplication exposes because it seems like it is not fully constructed (things like the HttpMethod, QueryString and Form properties are not created).

However, if you handle an event like such:

context.BeginRequest += new EventHandler(Context_BeginRequest);

then once you enter the EventHandler, the Context Object (attached to the source parameter) seems to be fully constructed.

private void Context_BeginRequest(object sender, EventArgs e){_context = ((HttpApplication)sender).Context;

I lead the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google.

We want people to have the best experience possible on the web without having to install a native app or produce content in a walled garden.

Our team tries to make it easier for developers to build on the web by supporting every Chrome release, creating great content to support developers on web.dev, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.

I love to learn about what you are building, and how I can help with Chrome or Web development in general, so if you want to chat with me directly, please feel free to book a consultation.
