Securing ASP.NET Web API’s

This week is a long awaited show for many ASP.NET Web API Developer out there,Daniel Roth joins us for the feature show on how to secure your ASP.NET Web API. There is a lot of amazing information and this is a “must watch” episode. We also re-introduced the Web Site Window, in which we had Petr Podhorsky form the Web Sites team introduce us to remote debugging with Visual Studio 2013 and Windows Azure Web Sites.

Don’t ask me too many questions about this one because I was learning on the episode as well. 🙂

Mavericks upgrade and ZSH

If you, like me, use zsh as your shell, you may have run in to some trouble with the mavericks update. So before you freak out like I did (or perhaps you already have done so) you can follow these few simple steps to get yourself back up and running.

First thing I did was to make a folder on my desktop called “zshstuff”.  Then I copied over the contents of my .zshrc file and my custom theme file.

Next I went in to Terminal preferences and changed the Command (complete path) to /bin/bash

After that I closed down terminal and reopened in Bash.  I then cd’d into my root directory and removed .oh-my-zsh.  Once it was gone it just curled in a new install of zsh

curl -L | sh

After it had been installed I opened up my now reset .zshrc file and copied back in the contents I had saved previously.  I also opened up the theme folder and put my custom theme back in there.

I closed the terminal window and changed the command back to /bin/zsh and then restarted terminal.  everything back up and running normally.  Hope this helps anyone else who has had this issue!
