  1. Getting Started with Windows Template Studio

    Developers are always looking for shortcuts to make their programming more efficient and let them focus on the fun bits. Deep down inside developers are lazy people that don't want to do boring work. Repetitive work. About a year ago I finished a Pluralsight course on building your first Universal Windows App, which aimed to give developers a great shortcut for building apps for Windows 10. It took me three goes to finish the course (Microsoft kept moving the goal posts), but I was happy with the...
  2. Contributing to .NET for Dummies

    Over the past few months in the little spare time that I have, I’ve managed to submit a handful of pull requests to various .NET-related repositories (e.g. coreclr, corefx, docs, etc.) and incredibly, they were accepted.Now, for some, this may not seem like a big deal. But it felt like a pretty big one to me so I thought I would take some time to elaborate on the process itself, share my experience, and hopefully dispel a few myths or misconceptions that you might have that may be holding you back...

  4. 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...
  5. User Profile Service service failed the logon.

    A few days ago, i found a particular variant of error "User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded. This occurs with first users logon.

  6. 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...

    Debian 8 (Jessie) doesn't contain RoundCube in it's repositories. Why, I don't know :) . In ISPConfig3, Perfect Server, Debian 8, you get SquirrelMail, but I don't like how it looks. With some trouble setting it up, I managed to configure RoundCube on Debian 8 and make it wokring with ISPConfig3. Used many sources to make it work and decided to create this manual that you’re reading.I presume that you have configured your server with Perfect Server Debian 8 (Apache, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3) configuraton...
