DNN/Evoq Scheduler: Setting Expectations

One of the fundamental features of the DNN/Evoq platform is the the internal "Scheduler" system.  Creating a Scheduled Job is an easy process, and something I have blogged about in the past.  However, I have been seeing more questions recently around what exactly is meant by the "5 Minute" Interval or other settings regarding the scheduler jobs.  The root cause is the differences in expectations versus what is possible.

Debugging & Managing NuGet Packages A Lesson Learned

Over the past few years those of us in the .NET development space have been forced to jump on the NuGet bandwagon as it relates to adding certain dependencies to our own projects.  No matter what our individual thoughts are with regards to NuGet we must learn to live with the tool, and use it to the best of our abilities.  Most of the time the packages that we use will be well-formed and managed in a responsive manner.  However, as I recently learned, that isn't always the case.  When things start to go awry it can make your standard diagnostic processes less than successful.  Given these experiences I wanted to share two recent experiences with NuGet, not in an effort to shame any of the involved parties, but to help illustrate the importance of looking at solutions & packages in a different light than your standard development processes.
