Obfuscar 2.0 errors with loading types from assembly

I plugged Obfuscar into my build pipeline (the easiest configuration ever, by the way) because I needed to obfuscate a DLL I was going to push as a NuGet package.

WordPress blog article edit mode: No Tags or Categories visible?

How to find out which WebDriver version is installed on an Azure DevOps build machine using YAML?

Uh, okay, well. So this is where you should just RTFM (that’s along the lines of “check the documentation” for those uninitiated in the world of unnecessary abbreviations). But as we’ve found out before, Microsoft’s documentation on the agent’s installed software isn’t always up-to-date. That’s why I added this simple snippet on my pipeline to figure out which version of the browser AND the webdriver are installed on the machine.…Continue reading How to find out which WebDriver version is installed on an Azure DevOps build machine using YAML?
