Migrating Redmine issue to devops/vsts work item with acmemapper

We love devops/vsts (will use devops starting now) and used it for long time for our continuous integration and continuous deployment. But on few projects we started long time ago with Redmine which I do really like: lighting fast, simple and cover without hassle 90% of our needs. But, in order to align with company policy and improve cross team cooperation, we had to me a reasonable choice… Continue Reading Fabien...

Deploy nodejs webjobs to Azure App Service with VSTS

During 2 years, we were gently deploying nodejs & dotnet webjobs with VSTS & a private agent/pipeline with … FTP method (not ftps). Wasn’t best practise, wasn’t really secure, but worked for 2 years.

Comparing 2 entity records to keep the difference

Hi everyone, For some use cases, I had to perform some comparisons between 2 “versions” of the same record in order to keep the difference and use it.
