Hello, I'm Jason
I live with my family in the rolling hills of Northeastern Pennsylvania. I'm a web developer by trade, but have broad experience in various business areas. Want to know more about me?
When checking in code into source control, especially in a continuous integration and deployment process, it’s best to use pull requests. Using pull requests allows others, including virtual bots, to review your code and to ensure there are no build issues. I use this process frequently within GitHub when building my personal website.Read More
The Azure App Configuration library version 1.0.1 caused client side connection issues. I shared the message in my original post back on 6/23. On 6/29, I posted about a temporary work around to this problem. I was notified late yesterday that version 1.1.0 of the Azure App Configuration library has been officially released. You can grab the latest version by either visiting the official
@azure/app-configuration NPM page or by running
npm i @azure/app-configuration from a command line within your project.
GitHub has been spending a lot of time over the past few years improving their features above and beyond source control. One of the areas they have invested in is Pull Requests. I’ll start by assuming that you have a branch in GitHub and changes have been pushed to that branch.Read More

On Wednesday this week, I wrote a short blurb about 2020 thus far. While we mostly cannot celebrate in the same manner that we normally would, Americans will still take today to pause and thank those that have served our country. We’ve made great strides as a country since 1776, and I challenge our country to make even more strides in the next 6 years when we celebrate 250 years as a nation. There are still many Americans that don’t feel free or independent. We have work ahead of us and I’m certain that we’ll get there. Let’s not dwell on the past but change the future.Read More
Earlier this week, Microsoft announced Pylance is available in the Visual Studio Code Marketplace. Pylance offers feature-rich language support for Python inside of VS Code. It depends on the core Python extension and provides type checking, auto imports, type information and more. While Python Language Server will still exist, the long term plan is to migrate users over to Pylance. Be sure to check out Pylance and download from the marketplace.Read More
We’re now officially at the midpoint of 2020. I’m not sure anyone is looking back at the past 6 months thinking it has been a great 6 months. Besides a global pandemic and a fight for freedom, liberation, and justice, it’s hard to believe that anything else has happened. I never thought I’d be raising children in a world that would see these events in such a short period of time. Sure, we’d read about it growing up in history class. But, being naive, never thought this would happen in 2020. I’m sure I join the rest of the world in hoping that the next 6 months are much, much better than the first six. In many cases, when an event at this magnitude hits, we look to sports or entertainment to help us temporarily forget. This time it has been different. There’s no point in dwelling at the past. We are where we are. Let’s push to move forward and fight for better health and equality in the next six months. We can beat 2020.Read More
For a recent camping trip, I needed a new portable power bank as my others have reached their end of life. Since I needed it rather quick, I headed over to Amazon and found the Ekrist Portable Charger Power Bank. Wither over 2500 ratings averaging a 4.4, I felt pretty confident that this would do the trick. I have a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G from Verizon Wireless. I only used it the portable power bank once as I didn’t have cell service and mostly left my device in airplane mode. I was pretty happy with it and noticed that I still had all 4 lights (above 75%) battery left after a single charge of my phone. It also happens to be smaller than my phone. Here’s what it looks like:Read More
