  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).

  3. Creating HSTS and Pre-load with Cloudflare

    Most people are familiar with HTTPS and the concept of secure websites. Securing websites become more and more common, which is a really good thing. Not only do we know that the data sent and received from the website is secure, but we also get a sense of knowing we will be alright. We expect that we get confidentiality, authenticity and integrity from modern websites. After all, we see sites every day with this:This is becoming more and more common, and according to Scott Helme almost 31% of the...
  4. Keras: The Python Deep Learning library with Tensorflow and CNTK

    Hey, This is my first article, I hope you find informative.  Currently, I get interested in the AI & Machine Learning. And start learning by experimenting as well. I usually use Tensorflow and CNTK in Parallel. So, First I give a little Introduction to both like What they are and What they do?Tensorflow is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. Nodes in the graph represent mathematical operations, while the graph edges represent the multidimensional...
  5. 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.

It has been quite a while, since I have joined DevOps practices and...
  6. Introduction to Progressive Web Apps

    As some people know, I have been very passionate about Windows Phone since the early days of the platform. I am still using a Windows 10 Mobile device, and I still love the operating system and the Windows 10 platform. However, I am not living in a cave, and I do realise that the future potential of the Windows mobile platform is limited. I still don't think it is "dead", but it is certainly limited. I started learning Xamarin a couple of years ago, to use my C# knowledge and skills for building...

  8. 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...
  9. 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...

Well, there is! Created by the team that produced Fragments and Young Conker, the HoloToolkit is a collection of scripts and components intended to accelerate the development of holographic applications targeting Windows Holographic. The toolkit is all free...
