Of Kare-Kare, HockeyApps and Visual Studio Team Services!
So I recently gave a talk on dotnetConf 2016 in Makati City and delivered Mobile DevOps on Azure and TFS. Cool stuffs on how you can manage your projects from front end application, using HockeyApp for distribution and back-end servers in the cloud using Azure.

Quite a late post, but we met the Developer Experience team from APAC and from Microsoft Philippines last August 18th at Sentro 1771!
Thanks APAC and PH DX team for your support to the MVP and the community!
Yesterday marks a milestone for user groups here in Manila. Its our 10th year anniversary and what better way to celebrate but to do another community-led event!
To get things started (really really hyped start) its no better than Mr. Joel Garcia himeself, DX Director of Microsoft Philippines doing the welcome remarks.
How hyped? I forgot to take pictures as we are all very very much engaged especially when he got the actual Microsoft Hololens out of the bag.
Next is my demo, Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 5 on Microsoft Azure.
Next is Jay-R Barrios (Microsoft MVP for Cloud and Datacenter Management from Singapore) and one of the geeks that started this user group and the one that recruited me to the community.
His talk no less than create an entire infrastructure on an Intel NUC and Surface Book. Did it using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and System Center Configuration Manager.
Then its Jay Paloma’s turn on Career in Desktop. Doing talk about desktop deployments and more deployment essentials. Also did I say already that he is an MVP since 2007?
Its also handy if you got a CEH guy hanging around the venue. One of our core member Ren Narvaez, MVP for Enterprise Security delivered a hacking topic that I really really cannot show on my blog. Again guys, those are for educational purposes only. Dont try those at home!
Many thanks also to Microsoft Philippines for allowing us to use their 8th floor conference / events place as well as the food and SWAGS for the attendees. Thanks for your usual support (for 10 years now) to our User Groups!
So thanks for attending our event guys!
See you on our next community event!
I’m moving, or more like forking, this WordPress site contents to Microsoft Azure web apps. Do you want to know how it was done? Check out the new site here and the main post here. The hardest part is choosing my new theme for the site.
Send Grid never failed me, I had never used the plain’ol SMTP way back when I started using Azure. But today, I have been pulling my hairs out because it seems my password reset is not sending any email.
I checked, double checked my IIdentityMessageService implementation and I know this works. I changed to my personal Office 365, refreshed it again and still no avail. But wait, what is this? Clutter. Clutter is a feature already as described here.
To turn this off, go to your Mail options by clicking the cog in the right hand corner and then click options.
Navigate to Options > Mail > Automatic Processing > Clutter.
Uncheck “Separate items identified as clutter. Then click save.
There ya go, now back to the forgot password thingy.
Visual Studio ASP.NET MVC controller with views and EF template creates db.ApplicationUsers instead of just db.Users.
1. Rename ApplicationUsers to Users
2. Delete the Controller and View
3. Close and Re-open VS and Project. Rebuild.
4. Recreate the Controller!
So its in the morning, you said lets scaffold! And you got this error:
This happens when you reference a foreign key your “ApplicationUsers” that is used in the IdentityDbContext that inherits IdentityUser.
And then when you add a new controller with views using EF the scaffold will generate the ApplicationUsers but its DbSet or property of the object will not be available.
One workaround is to rename your ApplicationUsers to only “Users”.
Now this is important, delete the controller and its views folder after renaming. Then you need to close visual studio.
Open the project once more and rebuild your solution.
You should now be able to scaffold the controller.
