When testing it's important to replicate your live environment as closely as possible but equally we don't always want to make our test environments publicly accessible. In this article we will look at how we can use IIS Dynamic IP Restrictions to block unwanted visitors to a site even when using CloudFront or Elastic Load Balancing.
Using SSL with some AWS resources such as CloudFront or Elastic Load Balancer can be tricky to setup - particularly if you arrive from a Windows background. In this article we look at how we can take an SSL certificate from IIS and upload it to IAM on AWS to allow it to be used for other services.
In this post we will look at how to integrate CKEditor with knockout enabling 2-way databinding for rich text. This technique can be extended across single page apps or anywhere else that you want to offer rich text editing which backs onto JavasScript models.

To this end we develop against local IIS rather than the Visual Studio inbuilt server or IIS Express. In this article we will look at some of the pitfalls and considerations of this approach.
