How to fix ‘Runtime/Server Error’ redirect issues when adding Azure ACS authentication to an ASP.Net Project

So, I’ve been working on an ASP.Net project for the University over the last few weeks, and part of the remit was to have login functionality present. Being the lazy student I am, I stated the case for using Windows Azure’s ACS service for this and the guy running the project seemed to like what I said, so I went ahead and started to implement it.

Followed a helpful guide by Teemu Tapanila (great guy), and everything went smoothly. Setup the access control namespace, added Identity and Access to VS2012, entered in all the correct details, ran the project locally and hey presto! It worked.

Getting to grips with GitHub

So, I’ve been signed up to GitHub for around a year but never really ‘got it’.

That is, until I started meeting people in the industry, talking to them, reading their blogs and realising that GitHub is more than just source control. It’s also a way to share and display your code to others, many employers now use GitHub as a tool to check if an applicant is ‘up to the task’ of working for them. It’s good to see what kind of things people work on outside of their job, purely out of interest.
