IE 11 with updated Developer Tools

The new developer tools window of IE 11 is great looking but it is confusing at best to start with. The most important part of the developer tool is the emulator selection of previous versions but sadly it’s the last option in the left navigation options of the devTools.

Yes after using the devTools, one can say how useful it is and where certain options are located, but the start off is just as how things were with Windows 8 beta. The not knowing of what keys or buttons to press is frustrating.

Ah I wish a day when, designing and maintaining a website will not require a forever testing of every possible combination of systems and the browsers.

One good thing I notice in the new Emulation is that, it now allows a laundry list of combinations to test out and the user agent string is a long list:

  • Default
  • Internet Explorer 10
  • Internet Explorer 9
  • Internet Explorer 8
  • Internet Explorer 7
  • Internet Explorer 6
  • IE 10 – Windows Phone 8
  • IE 9 – Windows Phone 7
  • IE – Xbox
  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Opera
  • Apple Safari (iPad)
  • Bing Bot
  • Custom

Using the combination of user agent string with browser profile and display options will really make it easy to test the website’s now, as there is much more surety of how the application will look rather than booting up all possible hardware's only to learn the bugs or what not to fix.

The developer tool is very important part of my testing assets, including the Firefox firebug.

Completed UiPath - RPA Developer Advance Training

After a month of training, with late nights and weekends I have completed the UiPath RPA Developer Advance Training.

The Level 1 Foundation Training pretty much covered all the basics of Desktop studio and workflows, only draw back was I started with the default foundation course which was for 2016, and all document reference links where pointing to 2016 version. I didn't understand it during the foundation training and kept switching to 2018 version document/page.

Only after completing the Foundation course that I realized, I was suppose to have started with the 2018 version of Level 1 Foundation Training, but as it was optional I didn't have to retake the 2018 version, the 2016 was good enough for moving to level 2.

The Level 2 Orchestrator 2018.3 Training as good. It gave good understanding of Queue's, Jobs, and schedules and I was able to complete the level two much faster then the level 1.

The Level 3 UiPath Advanced Training was bit tough as it involved the assignme…

KB 294807 - IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe

Resolved issue today of IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe by deleting "Windows Temp" folder files.

We used Cygwin to customize some permissions of "Windows Temp" folder and after few hours the website stopped working.

The search online was giving all kinds of different solution except what I was looking for.

I was hoping the stackoverflow will have answers but even this post didn't cover the issue I was running into.
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15302080/fastcgi-500-failure

Restarting the IIS didn't work, but deleting temp files cleared the issue, but now the problem is how long before the site will go down again?

Hope the issue is resolved for ever, if not; I will update this post later.

Grow with Google Scholarship / Udacity

Grow with Google Scholarship / Udacity

Today on Jan 11, 2018, I have received the Grow with Google Scholarship.

I am really excited because, previously I had joined Udacity to complete a Nano Degree, but due to price and family priorities, I had to abandon that goal.

Today, I feel like I am getting a second chance to give it another shot to completing my Nano Degree.
