Guest Blog Post: Work Experience at endjin – Week 1

by Howard van Rooijen

I’ve written about endjin’s commitment to Apprenticeships before and we’re almost at the anniversary of our first apprentice joining the company. At DevOps London earlier in the year I was approached and asked if we would be open to accepting a work experience placement for a year 10 secondary school student. We thought it would be […]


In the previous posts I’ve explained how to set up installers in your application, how to use the content factory, and how to set up the composition framework for ASP.NET. In this post I will show you how to debug the container. If you try to resolve a component that has missing dependencies, the Container will […]


To use endjin composition framework with an ASP.NET MVC 4/WebAPI application, firstly pull in the Endjin.Core.Composition.Web package from NuGet. Following the steps from the previous posts, you can set up your interfaces, concrete types and installers. No further initialization is required though – the package includes extensions for configuring and initializing the container, and also […]

Another powerful tool in the composition framework is the ContentFactory. This provides methods for registering and getting content based on a contentType string. When getting content, if the contentType is not found in the […]

In this post, I’m going to cover a quick example of how to get started with the basics of the endjin composition framework. Firstly, we define an interface for some type Then, we create a concrete type for our interface Now we can […]


We’ve just pushed out version 2.0 of our open-source, component composition framework. This is the framework we use internally day-in, day-out for our dependency injection. The previous version had a dependency on Castle Windsor, but in this new version we have implemented our own container. There are a few reasons we decided to take this […]

Ethical Foundations When we founded endjin, Matthew, Lloyd and I spent a lot of time thinking about the type of company we wanted to create; one recurring theme was that in our personal time we each did a significant amount of work for “good causes” and we derived a huge amount of joy and satisfaction […]
