Setting up TeamCity on a new server can be frustrating. Every time I try it, I run into a new issue. The latest of these issues was missing .targets files. The first missing targets file, Microsoft.WebApplication.targets, resulted in all sorts of errors.

We can set TeamCity up to watch our code repositories, automatically publish new changes, and run all sorts of unit tests without anyone lifting a finger. This is how to get it all set up.

Umbraco Gold Partner and web development company ProWorks Corporation has teamed up with Washington-based company Mindfly Web Design Studios on a project for the Economic Research Service (ERS), an agency within the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). ERS required services from an Umbraco Certified Gold Partner to improve their current Umbraco CMS implementation and website.
In a recent upgrade of a very old Umbraco CMS WebForms site to 6.x I found a trick with getting the request validation disabled on a template level instead of for the entire web site through the web.config.
