  1. Visual Studio 2017 Installer Projects

    The one thing that frustrates me a bit is how often the Visual Studio installer projects change from version to version. In fact, as of this writing there is no project template for Visual Studio 2017. It just so happened that the project that I was working on, was originally developed in Visual Studio 2015. It included a setup project that was now no longer available in Visual Studio 2017. It simply displayed the setup project as (incompatible).Some might argue that I should just go back to using...
  2. The Path is Null and Full of Squiggles

    I've been using Visual Studio 2017 since the earliest bits were available and I can confidently say, I'm a fan and highly recommend you give it a shot if you get a chance.With that being said, sometimes new features can cause things to blow up and this post is going to be discussing one of those such features, namely Lightweight Solution Load.Recently, I opened up a decently sized solution (~9 projects) and everything seemed in order. All of my dependencies were there, with no warning signs to be...
  3. Sharing is Caring: Using Shared Projects in ASP.NET

    As software developers, copy-pasting some code or a few files and having it in multiple places has always been smelly. There are several different avenues that you can take to avoid this kind of redundancy, but this post will focus on one that it seems isn’t talked about too often: Shared Projects.Prior to the introduction to Shared Projects, I’ll briefly go over why Shared Projects themselves were introduced, and how you might have accomplished similar behavior before their release.With the major...
  4. Glyphfriend 2.1 Released! Now with Library Filtering

    It hasn't been too long since the latest 2.0 release of Glyphfriend, but with the release of Visual Studio 2017 coming around the corner, there were a few things that could use some improvement and polishing off before then.Message received, loud and clear.All of the changes that were made to make the extension more flexible actually resulted in it being more noisy. Glyphfriend would just serve everything it knew about. This has generally been regarded as a bad move, and thus library filtering is...
  5. Resolving Installation Issues with Visual Studio 2017

    I’ve seen quite a few posts online regarding folks having issues installing Visual Studio 2017 after using previous versions of the IDE (such as the various pre-releases and RCs). If this sounds like you, then you might want to follow some of the steps in this blog post to ensure that your next install goes smoothly.Generally, the standard uninstall procedure should work as expected, so definitely try that before moving on. If that doesn’t work and you find yourself unable to install or update...
  6. Tech skill and Salary analysis - United States and Australia

    Tech job seekers, both active and passive, are willing to make a move for the right offer. But when is the right time to move? Since the technology sector is ever expanding and evolving, it is hard to know when the market is best placed for a strategic relocation into another role. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of tech and computer occupations is expected to grow 12% by 2024, greater than the average for all other occupations. Now more than ever it is important that...

    Digital Certificates are used for secure communication between two parties. In digital certification we ensure that the peoples who are using our apps or services are securely communicating with each other and those peoples can be individual consumers or businesses.In Digital Certification we use both Hashing and Asymmetric encryption for creating digital signatures.After encrypting the hash of data we obtain a digital signature later which is used for verification of data.As there are a lot more...

  10. The Power of PowerShell.. And the Shell..

    "What is the one technology I need to learn to get a job like the one you have?" - this is a question I've received from time to time, and my answer would vary, depending on who asked. Or rather; who I perceive the questioner to be - I cannot *know* for a fact what most suits his or her particular ambitions and style.. But in the last few years my answer, more often than not, has been "PowerShell"! Simply because I see it as one of the most important and game-changing technologies to come out of...
