Yesterday I wrote Create a Custom Endpoint in Azure Devops with VSTeam. You’ll need some of the scripts from that project for today’s post.
I’m very happy to have found the vsteam Powershell module on GitHub. At work we have a custom application to provision resource groups in Azure, but for my home projects it’s powershell all the way. I’ve seen some other modules, but vsteam has a very clean implementation. It’s great stuff.
I am very excited to ask for your help! If my dad or one of his children or grandchildren has done something that blessed your life or brought you joy, will you please send one of us a note about it? We’d like to read him the notes this week.
Today I was able to export my ancestry from Family Search into GEDCOM format, and then import it into Family Tree DNA. I only exported seven generations back, which was far enough to encompass both my last confidently known paternal and maternal ancestors. I am so grateful for the countless hours of work done by many people to make the family tree available, as well as to make the export possible. Truly, we stand on the shoulders of giants.
My team uses Artifactory as our binary repository. If you’re reading this, you probably use it too. It has this neat ability to prune unreferenced data. An admin feature to be grateful for when needed, but the fact that you need it means something’s busted in a bad way.
