For many businesses, predefined workflow options work well. The software can be adapted to their needs and the need for more specialized customization isn’t a vital one. For others, however, the need to have a workflow tailored to their specific needs is important. Let’s take a look at why a custom business workflow might be right for your business and what you can expect as you move forward with the process.
What is a custom business workflow?
A custom business workflow, as the name implies, is workflow software that has been built to meet a specific client’s needs. It is custom software, in other words, that is designed to fit a businesses workspace needs perfectly. This is especially useful for “non-traditional” businesses that rely on their workflow to unite team members and guide work tasks daily.read more
Started using Visual Studio 2015 on Windows 10 this weekend, did a clean install. Started bringing in some of our current projects and could not get them to run with a local cert (ssl) on the new IIS Express 10.0. Only seemed to be an issue with Firefox and Chrome, not Microsoft Edge.

If you prefer to use Entity Framework, more power to you. After developing my SQL skills for years it just feels "odd" to give them up for what I consider minor convenience. I'm sure that this is some sort of holy war discussion that really, I'm not interested in participating in.

So when I found out that the new security model for ASP.NET called "ASP.NET Identity" had a dependency on EF, I needed a way to remove it.read more
OWASP ZAP is an excellent (FREE) tool to test your website for common security issues. It has a large library of plugins and an what seems to be an active community. Although the tool has an active attack method, I prefer the passive attack method as you can use the site as you normally would. Although tutorials do exist on how to get started, I personally had difficulty finding them or knowing what I was even looking for when I first started. Especially related to passive security scanning. The interface isn't the most "intuitive", so I figured I would write these instructions for anybody encountering the same problems.read more
I'm currently working through a complete Identity setup without using Entity framework. This is taking me to difficult places as the source for this library is yet to be released. It involves lots of reading and guessing. One area of confusion is the Security Stamp.

This is the best I found, but it still wasn't enough for the full blown, non EF version.read more
