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!
See a few of my last updated blog articles below.
What’s this site 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 are always bumps on way too!
Nowadays, the blog receives about 10 000 unique visitors monthly. That’s been a huge motivator for improving some of the articles – I’d share them anyway (since it’s for my own documentation, too), but I’m trying to write them better, since there’s a fair chance someone else reads them as well!
Isn’t that cool?
Okay, okay –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 – it might be pretty obvious, but a lot of my more technical posts are about SharePoint and related issues. Office 365 and Azure are very heavily featured as well.
Below are some of my latest posts about technical topics. There’s new stuff coming out almost weekly!
- SharePoint linguistic search features
- How to remove Azure Functions without deleting the Functions App?
- EntityFramework Core 2.1 – Update-Database error “The EntityFramework package is not installed”
- How to fix “AADSTS90008: The user or administrator has not consented to use the application”?
- Help! My ASP.NET MVC textbox date format is wrong!
- SharePoint Search Console – Now available inside Chrome SP Editor!
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 & 2019 Canada).
I attend community event like SharePoint Saturdays whenever I can, and I’m lucky my 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)!
