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 and/or tricky topics.
See a few of my latest blog articles below:
- Resolving an incredibly pointless struggle with RCCOkay, this might be my least general and overall most pointless article ever, but I felt I needed to document it anyway. Maybe it’ll help someone with a similar gadget, despite being a bit off-topic on this blog. Apologies to any regular visitors! So, what am I talking about, then? Recently I bought a radio-controlled projector clock as a gift to my wife. I reasoned that such a device would never require any fiddling with (due to its automatic nature), and hence be the one…Continue reading Resolving an incredibly pointless struggle with RCC
- How to force an outdated .NET project to use TLS 1.2?This article explains a kind of weird fix to a pretty annoying issue with a legacy service. And I’m not just calling it legacy because it’s WCF – I’m calling it legacy, because it was developed about 7 years ago (2014-ish)! It had worked for quite a while – but now it was down. So – I was brought onboard to solve the issue. The service was supposed to be connecting to SharePoint Online. It was originally developed by a 3rd party who were not…Continue reading How to force an outdated .NET project to use TLS 1.2?
- How to fix a Logic App deployment that failed with error “ApiNotFound”?This article explains a quick and dirty fix when you get an error somewhat like “ApiNotFound” when you’re deploying an Azure Logic app from a template. This seems to be a very typical hurdle to run into when you’re trying to deploy a PowerAutomate Flow you’ve exported. I guess despite being built on the same platform, Flow developers took some liberties and the migration is not quite as painless as one would hope… :) Anyway – on to the topic of the day! Problem This…Continue reading How to fix a Logic App deployment that failed with error “ApiNotFound”?
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 some 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. Would love to meet y’all again, after we’ve got a vaccine or something.
