Using Kentico Kontent in LINQPad

Sometimes you simply want to try out some code without having to go through the ceremony of setting up a project. Using tools like LINQPad can help by providing you with a quick way to run .NET small queries and programs in isolation, with a really powerful set of methods to output the object graphs to a results window.

I use LINQPad a lot, and most recently with the Kentico Kontent headless CMS. Kontent has a set of .NET SDK which wraps it's API and makes it super easy to use as a .NET developer.

In this video, I'll introduce LINQPad and show you how I use it with Kentico Kontent.

I've tried for years to find ways to use LINQPad with Kentico Xperience, but was never successful. Maybe by this time next year I can...

But I'm glad to see it works well with the Kontent SDK 🤘

Yeah, it's pretty sweet. I'm planning to try out a nice HTTPClient intercept with it too to cache the the API responses for a while. Pretty sure I'll write that up or create a video too!
