Welcome!

This post was most recently updated on October 31st, 2018.

Antti K. Koskela is a Finnish Software Developer / Escalations Engineer / Generally Geeky Person, currently living in Montréal, Canada. Koskila.net is his personal professional (e.g. professional, but definitely personal) website.

Okay, let’s drop the third person speech. You can read more about me and stuff I do from here: https://www.koskila.net/antti-koskela/

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 topics!


What’s this site about?

The tagline for my blogging efforts has been Solutions are worthless unless shared for a while already. That’s to say, that 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 are always bumps on way too!

I mentioned earlier, that I’m writing about all kinds of exciting topics. And boy, shouldn’t everyone be quite extatic about some of this stuff! Just listen to these topics I often write about: Azure Active Directory errors, azure powershell errors, terrifying examples about how to open a modal dialog in SharePoint modal dialog using JavaScript, all kinds of cool new Microsoft Azure -related tips and tricks, some SharePoint configuration stuff and all kinds of Visual Studio -related (and other) tips and tricks.

Isn’t that cool?

Jokes aside, check out the tech & programming tips (most of the posts tend to be about solving certain specific issues with Microsoft’s stack), most of which are about ASP.NET MVC, Entity Framework, SharePoint, Azure or Active Directory – it’s fairly Microsoft-centric, I’m afraid!


Latest “Techy” Posts

#SharePointProblems – that’s the name of the current iteration of the site. Might be pretty obvious, but a lot of the technical posts are about SharePoint and related issues. 

Below are some of my latest posts about technical topics. There’s new stuff coming out almost weekly!

There’s an occasional post about software issues other than on Microsoft’s stack, and a rare post about hardware, too! And 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 Canada).


Speaking Gigs

I attend community event like SharePoint Saturdays whenever I can, and I’m lucky me employer Valo sends me all around the world. I’m also speaking at some of these events every now and then – see below, if any of the events are coming up (of catch the materials from the latest gigs)!
