* Containers are commonly used in conjunction with a microservices architecture, although they can also be used to containerize web apps or services which follow any architectural pattern. When creating and deploying a container, the size of its image is far smaller with .NET Core than with .NET Framework. Use .NET Core for your server application when you have cross-platform needs & you are targeting microservices especially using Docker containers. .NET Framework and .NET Core can both be used for building server-side applications with .NET.  .NET Framework is suitable for your server applications when you are using third-party .NET libraries or NuGet packages or .NET technologies like ASP.NET Web Forms, WPF, Windows Forms are not available for .NET Core.

* The two most frequently used influencing styles are Push and Pull. Push style is characterized by three specific verbal behaviors: Proposing Content (suggesting an idea); Giving Information (providing the rationale); and Shutting Out (talking across others). Push works well in conditions where the influencer has positional authority. Other situations that call for Push include where you have the expertise, where there’s only one solution, where the decision has already been made, where decisions need to be made quickly and when you can enforce compliance. Pullers use three behaviors in particular: Seeking Proposals (e.g. How should we best do this?) Seeking Information (e.g. Who has the relevant experience?) and the rare but highly prized skill of Building – extending or developing a proposal made by another person. Pull style can also be effective when influencing upwards, where resistance is likely to be high when there’s more than one option when there are no time pressures and where any movement is better than none. It’s also useful in fostering collaboration and in coaching others to use their resources. Pull might take a little longer but the rewards outweigh the costs - Indezine
