  1. CI/CD Pipelines: Importing and Exporting TeamCity projects across different versions

    If you develop applications and are involved with build management and pipelines then you will have heard about TeamCity, a CI / CD solution from JetBrains.Working with my current client we encountered an issue whereby we couldn't import an exported project because I was getting the below error:The selected backup file version (829) does not match the current version of the TeamCity database (856). Only backup files created with a TeamCity server of the same version as the current server are supported.
  2. 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...
  3. Database migrations with Continuous Delivery in Entity Framework

    Who doesn't enjoy the big term, DevOps? It sounds promising and sounds interesting as well when someone says, they work as a DevOps engineer! But like they say, Similarly, in the case of DevOps, every process, which DevOps exposes has to be handled with a great care or the results are catastrophic. In this post, I am going to talk about the swissknife of continuous delivery, in the terms of database migrations and maintenance. It has been quite a while, since I have joined DevOps practices and...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. DevOps, NoOps and No Future

    In the wake of the recent MongoDB happy hour debacle, there have been a few mentions of DevOps and NoOps. The pieces were mostly about the fact that this incident proved that the IT business is not really in full DevOps mode, not to mention NoOps. I am not confident that NoOps will be the future for a vast majority of shops. Being from the Ops side of things, I am obviously biased toward anyone stating that NoOps is the future. Because that would mean no job left for me and my comrades in arms....
  9. How to add five star rating functionality to a website with jQuery, CSS and Microsoft Web API

    This article is the example I would have liked to have found when I was investigating how to write my own five star rating system.See https://www.easy-listen.com to see the five star rating example live.The rating system allows voting and retrieving the average vote for multiple items on a single page.References: the edX course named Introduction to jQuery by Microsoft’s Michael Harrison.This sample is a walkthrough explaining how to create the following code items.1. HTML file with five stars for...
  10. Continuous Deployment from GitHub to Azure

    Continuous Deployment from GitHub, the web based Git source repository service to Azure, the cloud offering from Microsoft, resolves many bottlenecks related to manual application deployment. Most of the open source developers use GitHub as a public or private repository to track code changes and as a collaboration tool. Integrating or deploying applications directly from GitHub to Azure reduce the time taken for manual deployment of applications. Let us quickly see how we can deploy a small...
