Resolving AngularJS paths in a ASP.NET MVC SPA and IIS
Routing in the development of a AngularJS SPA (single page application) inside an ASP.NET MVC application can be problematic.

I was assisting someone recently who was trying to setup a wildcard certificate on their Windows VPS. Their server was running Windows Server 2008 R2 with IIS 7.5.

Resolving Dependencies in ASP.NET MVC 5 with StructureMap
In a previous post I showed how to use StructureMap with ASP.NET MVC 3.  It’s been a couple of years, so I figured it was time to update that article with the steps for getting StructureMap working in ASP.NET MVC 5.  If you’re interested in learning more about how to develop applications in a loosely coupled fashion, I highly recommend my course on SOLID Principles of Object Oriented Design to learn more (in particular, the Dependency Inversion Principle).
