Build: minutes are back

If you have activated the new Account Home Page on your Visual Studio Team Services, you should have noticed that the free build minutes counter is not anymore there. Not only: it is not present in the home page, nor in any other pages and sections.

Finally, the counter is back. To see it, we have to go to the account settings, then Build and Release, Resource limits:

 Let's celebrate! Minutes are back :)

BugGuardian for ASP.NET Core

There is a new member in the BugGuardian family.

Quite a long ago, I've released BugGuardian, a library that allows you to automatically open a Bug or a Task work item on either Visual Studio Team Services or Team Foundation Server if your application experiences an unhandled exception. (Read more here)

After a while, two official extensions where released: BugGuardian.WebForms and BugGuardian.MVC. As the name states, they are targeting the ASP.NET WebForms and MVC respectively, making the adoption of BugGuardian even easier for who is using those platforms. But those 2 libraries have a limit: they only works with the traditional ASP.NET, running on the full .Net Framework.

Today, I'm very happy to announce that the BugGuardian.AspNetCore extension is finally available.

BugGuardian.AspNetCore is specifically written to support ASP.NET Core applications. It adds a Middleware to your application to let you automatically intercept all the exceptions.
And the good thing is that it supports projects with ASP.NET Core using both .Net Full Framework and Net Core.

You can find the source code (and all the information about its configuration) on GitHub here: https://github.com/n3wt0n/BugGuardian.AspNetCore

The package is also available on NuGet, here: https://www.nuget.org/packages/DBTek.BugGuardian.AspNetCore

Happy Coding :)
