In addition to this being my personal home page (nowadays, I guess that means a catalogue and links to my other stuff online in different channels, right?), I’m blogging about all kinds of exciting and/or tricky topics.
See a few of my latest blog articles below:
- How to import an Azure DevOps Git repository… From another Azure DevOps organization?A while ago, I needed to move an Azure DevOps Git repository from one organization to another. And that was far easier than I thought. For once, a nice surprise from Git _and_ Azure DevOps 😀 So, let me tell you how that’s done! Well, how it’s done if it goes well, anyway. And if still works as it used to when you’re reading this. We’ll see!

- How to fix NU3028 and NU3037 errors in Azure DevOps builds?This article explains a solution to a rather annoying issue, where certificate validation for builds trying to fetch NuGet packages published by Microsoft fails when using .NET 5. This happens at least with Docker build when you’re relying on some Microsoft-provided images… But probably also in a lot of other cases. Problem When running an Azure DevOps pipeline with any task that does any Docker stuff, your build fails. Or if you’ve configured your build differently, perhaps the task just fails. Or if your configuration…Continue reading How to fix NU3028 and NU3037 errors in Azure DevOps builds?
- How to kill the process causing the “MSB3021 Unable to copy file — The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.” error?This time, we’re taking a look at an annoying situation where your previous debugging session, or perhaps your dotnet serve, somehow locks-up your dlls or other important files that you kind of need to overwrite when rebuilding. And that, well, causes your build or debugging session to fail. So, let’s take a closer look at the actual errors we’ve run ourselves into! Problem Build complains about retrying something and failing afterward, and something like this is either in the console or in your build output…Continue reading How to kill the process causing the “MSB3021 Unable to copy file — The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.” error?
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 along the way too.
A lot of people seem to struggle with the same issues, as the blog nowadays has over 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.
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.
