I’m a Finnish Software Developer Entrepreneur living as a hermit on the beautiful Finnish countryside. Koskila.net is my personal professional (i.e. professional, but definitely personal) website.

On this site, I’m blogging about all kinds of exciting and/or tricky topics. Mostly just to write them down for myself. See a few of my latest blog articles below:
- How to find out dependency versions in your .csproj files using PowerShell?This article explains our solution to a very particular use case. We needed to go through .csproj files, find certain dependencies from them, and then figure out their versions. And all of this needed to happen in an Azure DevOps pipeline.

What’s koskila.net about?
The tagline for my blogging efforts has been Solutions are worthless unless shared for quite a while already. That’s to say, since I’ve gotten a lot of help from the community whenever I’ve had issues getting something to work, I like to give something back. This blog is my way of doing that.
Blogging has been a great, lightweight way to sort my thoughts and document weird fixes and findings along the way. And boy, has there been a lot of them! Microsoft’s stack always keeps surprising me – mostly in a positive way, but there’s an occasional bump on the way too.
A lot of people seem to struggle with the same issues, as the blog nowadays has around 70 000 visitors monthly. May you find my thoughtful workarounds as useful as I have!
In addition to more technical posts, sometimes I might post about my sessions at different community events, or experiences as an expat living in a foreign country (in 2017, that country was the USA, in 2018 & 2019 Canada). Right before the pandemic, I moved back to Finland to live in the middle of a forest. Quite literally, as I need to somewhat regularly scare moose away or they’ll eat our apples and trample my robot . Our pests are large.
Back in the olden days, when the world was not on fire, I used to travel to different events. Now it’s all digital, which is… Not quite the same.
You can also see a list of all my sessions and session materials.
No upcoming engagements. I’ve cut down traveling due to the pandemic.
