IIS XML Transformation with Azure DevOps

I was preparing a demo about IIS XML Transformation inside a CD pipeline with Azure DevOps.

It’s very likely that if you’re working with an ASP.Net project with default values the Azure App Service Deploy Task will fail. After some googling I found that this is documented here.

The trick is to remove the <DependendUpon> tag inside the csproj file.

By default, MSBuild applies the transformation as it generates the web package if the <DependentUpon> element is already present in the transform file in the *.csproj file. In such cases, the Azure App Service Deploy task will fail because there is no further transformation applied on the Web.config file. Therefore, it is recommended that the <DependentUpon> element is removed from all the transform files to disable any build-time configuration when using XML transformation.

My first streaming experience with YouTube

Yesterday I went live for the first time on YouTube. I improvised, literally, a session about the basics of Azure Kubernetes Service with the target objective to deploy an empty application starting from scratch.

The experiment was very intense because I had a couple of issues, but it delivered a not so bad result. Thank for my friends Giulio and Giuliano of getlatestversion.it for the feedback and for listening to me for almost an hour!

For this first stream I talked in Italian, but in the future when I’ll be more confortable I’ll swith to English to reach a broader audience.

How to use OBS Studio as an external encoder for Microsoft Teams and Stream Live Events

Luca Vitali [MVP]

Hi All,

recently Microsft published a list of video encoderstested for Live streaming with Microsoft Stream (http://bit.ly/LiveEnc).
One of this products is OBS Studio, a free and open source software for video recording and live streamig (https://obsproject.com/).

This is a great news and big improvement on live events direction compared to Skype for Business.
This area (meetings, meetings recording and live events) is definitely the one that I love in Teams (in conjunction with Stream).

Note: before you go on, it’s a good idea to read this article to understand differences in Live events between Teams, Stream and Yammer
