var services =
    new ServiceCollection()
        .AddLogging(builder =>
        {
            builder.AddConsole();
        })
        .AddSingleton<IMyPreciousService, MyPreciousService>()
        .AddSingleton<SomeDependency>()
        .BuildServiceProvider();

var preciousService = services.GetService<IMyPreciousService>();

preciousService.DoStuff();
