Visual Studio Online’s build: Azure Powershell fail the build

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 02:07:45 +0000

Visual Studio Online has many tasks: tasks for building .NET solutions, tasks for building Android, tasks for running bash scripts, tasks for running batch files.  If you want to run in the context of your Azure subscription, you use the Azure Powershell task.  I use this task to do some funny footwork in deploying successful … Continue reading Visual Studio Online’s build: Azure Powershell fail the build

Upgrade Android on a Rooted Device

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 01:48:48 +0000

When Android says “System update available”, we all gleefully run it. Those of us with rooted phones get a way through it and come to an android lying on its back, and a sinking feeling in the pit of our stomach. “Did I just brick my phone?” No, but we did break some of the assumptions the Android … Continue reading Upgrade Android on a Rooted Device

Speaking

Tue, 11 Mar 2014 16:35:19 +0000

What have I done recently? I’ve been focusing on regional and national speaking opportunities and community outreach. I taught Git in January in Vegas and in San Francisco in February, I compared Amazon and Azure in San Francisco in February, in March I’ll share What’s new in Visual Studio 2013 in Pasadena, and the highlight … Continue reading Speaking

Azure Websites Git Deploy Fail

Tue, 08 Oct 2013 20:33:15 +0000

Here’s an interesting fail.  I’m at the Windows Azure Developer Camp practicing some Git Deploy (total win!), and I hit a very interesting snag.  I’m deploying a legacy .net 3.5 app, and “git push azure master” failed with an http 500.  No other message.  Enter head-scratching mode.  Is it that it’s using a Windows Azure … Continue reading Azure Websites Git Deploy Fail

A Dozen JavaScript Libraries

Thu, 03 Oct 2013 03:00:43 +0000

It was my pleasure to present A Dozen JavaScript Libraries at vNext Phoenix this evening.  I think we had a record crowd!  It was great seeing old friends and meeting new friends. Presenting a dozen libraries in an hour and a half is quite a challenge, and we ended up rushing through the last few. … Continue reading A Dozen JavaScript Libraries

Git Training

Sat, 14 Sep 2013 02:17:16 +0000

Wow, that was fun.  I had the pleasure of training 174 people (42 in-person, 132 virtually) for an 8-hour session on Git.  Thanks to GoDaddy for sponsoring the event.  It was incredibly fun to run with the audience from “How do I install it?” at the beginning of the day to “So that’s how you … Continue reading Git Training

Welcome to Node

Fri, 30 Aug 2013 01:30:05 +0000

It’s my pleasure to present “Welcome to Node” to the dotNet user group in Las Vegas on August 29, 2013. Ideally this presentation is equally applicable to any developer approaching Node, though since this audience is coming from .NET, we’ll also discuss similarities and differences between .NET and Node. You can view the slides and … Continue reading Welcome to Node

Layout page and Blank Layout Page in ASP.NET MVC

Sat, 24 Aug 2013 02:00:36 +0000

Here’s the scenario: I want a “master” page for most pages on my ASP.NET MVC site, but I also have a few pages that don’t play along.  Maybe these are pop-ups that don’t need the standard menus, maybe they don’t need the left column, etc.  I could create two totally separate Layout.cshtml pages, but I … Continue reading Layout page and Blank Layout Page in ASP.NET MVC

SQL in the City London

Fri, 21 Jun 2013 19:00:43 +0000

I had a wonderful time attending SQL in the City London.  It’s really great to see the new versions of the tools and exchange new ideas with friends.  Towards full disclosure, I’ve been a Friend of Red Gate for as long as I can remember, and also spoke at SQL in the City last year in … Continue reading SQL in the City London

IIS Web Server Best Practices

Fri, 14 Jun 2013 18:04:12 +0000

Best practices I use when setting up IIS: – Each site should be a separate (sub-)domain.  Thus http://somesite.mycompany.com/ instead of http://www.mycompany.com/somesite/  This solves a few problems: “../../don’t/do/this.jpg” is avoided when you can presume the root of your site is “/”, which means you can avoid relative paths (even if you need not crawl up a directory) … Continue reading IIS Web Server Best Practices
