Typescript for the C# developer

Over the past couple of years, my most popular talk that Iv’e taken around user groups has been the one where I describe what Typescript is, and how it relates to the backend C# developer.

Iv’e found that many back-end devs who would like to jump into client side development, are often put off from doing so simply beacuse of the percieved mess that the JavaScript eco system is in at present, and let’s be fair it’s not a compleatly unfounded reason either, beacuse JavaScript is bleeding at the edges in a great many places.

Build Automation for Dotnet Core Apps

In a previous blog post I documented how I built a “Build Server” to deploy .NET 4.6+ apps on windows 2012 server.

While this worked, and was a reasonably good way to do it, It wasn’t without it’s problems. During it’s use for example I frequently had timing problems, where just one little change to some JS code would cause NPM to overrun a time out by half a second, or where an SSH connection timed out just slightly before the build server completed it’s login, and on top of all that, it regularly used to take about 15 minutes to build and deploy the project it was being used for.

Creating a .NET 4.6.2 Build server on Server 2012

Given that I’ve not written anything original for over a year and a half (More on that in another post) and given I had an hour to spare, I thought I’d quickly go over what I’ve been up to this weekend (Feb 2nd 2017).

As part of a new project I’m involved in, I needed to create a new CI/Build server, and since I’ve had a Dell C6100 sat in the server rack not been used to it’s full potential, I decided now was a good time to put it into use.

Dang is it 2012 already?

So here I am again, starting off yet another post, with the phrase “Yes I am still Here” 🙂 which seems to be the norm these days.

As some of you have noticed, I didn’t even get round to doing my year end wrap up this year, but there was a good reason for that. This year for the first time in ages I actually got a full 3 weeks or so to myself, and boy did I need to de-compress.
