C# 9 records as strongly-typed ids - Part 3: JSON serialization

Created by Wireform from the Noun Project Using C# 9 records as strongly-typed ids
In the previous post in this series, we noticed that the strongly-typed id was serialized to JSON in an unexpected way: { "id": { "value": 1 }, "name": "Apple", "unitPrice": 0.8 } When you think about it, it’s not really unexpected: the strongly-typed id is a “complex” object, not a primitive type, so it makes sense that it’s serialized as an object. But it’s clearly not what we want… Let’s see how to fix that.
