Migrating to Azure redis cache?

They are deprecating the inrole cache starting 2.9 SDK.

It was trouble migrating it.

If you first install the regular dll via nuget and then install the session state provider, it gets messed up.

Binary Search Algorithm in C# (min, max, middle position)

class BinarySearch
    {

        public static int Find(List<int> list, int searched)
        {
            //First sort input
            BucketSort.Execute(list, ShellSort.Execute);

            //Find min position
            int min = 0;
            //Find max position
            int max = list.Count - 1;

            int loops = 0;

            do
            {
                //Find middle position
                int middle = (min + max) / 2;

                if (searched < list[middle])
                {
                    //Bring down max so we half the search span the next time.
max = middle - 1;
                }
                else if (searched > list[middle])
                {
                    //Bring up min so we can half the search span the next time.
min = middle + 1;
                }
                else
                {
                    Console.WriteLine($"Loop Counter: {loops}");

                    //This is the item
return middle;
                }
