powershell, psake, devops
So this post has been overdue for a long time. I wanted to talk a bit about the setup we have on my current project for doing automated deployments to our various environments. The concepts are relatively simple but as always the devil is in the details.

So today is a holiday - Remembrance Day - and the client site is closed. We have the day off before the axe comes down tomorrow and we find out who, if anyone, we will lose to restructuring. Hopefully not too many people will be affected. Who knows I might be on the market as of tomorrow morning. It’s generally a pretty gloomy mood out there in the oil and gas circles.

Thick grey clouds pressed down on the deserted beach like a great pillow about to descend on a terminally ill patient. The waves were nervously rolling about and breaking down heaps of garbage floating in on the high tide. Scavengers would sometimes go trough the heaps of trash looking for something useful but despite decades of unchecked consumerist gluttony salvaging anything useful was a rare occurrence.

devops, powershell, teamcity
Just a quick post on accessing TeamCity REST API from PowerShell. Why would you want top do this? Well in this particular eample I will be using PowerShell to access the build change list from TeamCity.

devops, powershell, continuous delivery
I’ve been learning a lot lately about psake and Powershell on my new project. Getting the build to run with
psake was almost trivial, as was collecting the build artifacts and bundling them. That took all of 2 hours. Plug it into TeamCity and you’re done. If you haven’t looked into automating your build and deploy for .Net projects with
powershell you owe it to yourself to look into it. It’s well worth it!

I’ve been quiet again for a while and have fallen behind with the posts I want to publish. The reason behind this is I got a new gig that requires I expand my skill set in an interesting area that I enjoy working in. I’m talking about devops.

How many of you work in a large organization where the team that develops the software initially is not the team that runs it in production?

Other than software development my other great passion is for automobiles. I’m pretty excited about where things are going lately in the automotive sector. It seemed that for a while there there wasn’t a lot going on but as of late there are a number of super exciting things happening out there.

css, ux, legacy
As my current client has been rolling out IE 10 enterprise wide over the past few weeks we find ourselves facing issues with our legacy CSS code base.
