The Apple Developers Union

The Apple Developers Union   Recently a new group of App store developers has banded together to help push the cause of making the Apple App Store a little more developer friendly for people trying to make a living as Developers of applications for Mac’s and iPhones. The website is called The Developers Union and has some listed goals and targets. Their about page states  We believe that people who create great software should be able to make a living doing it. So we created The Developers Union to advocate for sustainability in the App Store. Today, we are asking Apple to publicly commit — by the tenth anniversary of the App Store this July — to allowing free trials for all apps in the App Stores before July 2019.

Adding Application Pool Identity in IIS to a Folder

KB – Granting folder permissions to IIS application pools     Skip to end of metadata   Go to start of metadata   Whenever a new application pool is created, IIS creates a security identifier (SID) that represents the name of the application pool itself. For example, if you create an application pool with the name “Smartcrypt,” a security identifier with the name “Smartcrypt” is created in Windows. Resources can be secured by using this identity.

This can be configured by selecting a folder in Windows Explorer and adding the “Smartcrypt” identity to the folder’s Access Control List (ACL). Open Windows Explorer Select the directory the Smartcrypt Manager is installed under (eg: c:\web\mds) Right click the directory and select Properties Select the Security tab Click the Edit button and then Add button Click the Locations button… Read More »Adding Application Pool Identity in IIS to a Folder
