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.

Syncfusion E-Book Number 7

Can you believe it’s 3 years since I wrote my first eBook for the Syncfusion Succinctly series, back in January 2013 Syncfusion released “GIS Succinctly”, I never really though it would go much further than that because I really didn’t believe I had that much to offer as a technical writer.

HTML5 Validation

I recently got asked what HTML5 validation looks like.

Needless to say this was a bit of a strange question, but as I read on through the question, I realized that is wasn’t a case of not knowing what HTML5 validation looks like, but a case of where jQuery validation stopped and the HTML5 stuff started.

In this quick post, I’m going to briefly cover the HTML5 validation stuff in the hopes it’ll clear a few things up.

2013 Year end

As I sit here on Christmas eve, and look over what I’ve done this year I realize I’ve not blogged anywhere near as much as I said I would. Beacuse of this, I’m really going to try my best to blog at least once a month in 2014, and if I don’t then feel free to shout at me on twitter via @shawty_ds

So what have I learned this year…. well technology wise I’ve really got stuck back into using non .NET tools.

Firebug – and some major geek kudos.

I don’t often write about individual teams, unless I have something really great to say, or some special thanks to give, and in this case it’s a little of both.

Those of you out there that are developers like me, and especially those in the web arena will know just what a PIA it is to debug client side code in Javascript.  What’s more, those of you who have to do this task often will (I hope) know about Firebug.
