I ran into a problem the other day that I could find very little information about so I thought I’d put a blog post together to
a) remind me
b) hopefully help anybody else who runs into this problem.
I picked the obtuse title as it is very close to the ambiguous error message I got and should hopefully help other people find the solution far faster than I did.
Recently I was working on a MVC3 application, it was working well and I wanted to sort out dependencies for our CI server so that we didn’t need to have MVC installed on the server for the code to build and intended to do this by adding bin deployable dependencies.

For a lot of developers the team leader position is a coveted one, it is as if when you become team leader the business is acknowledging you and your skills, but unfortunately for a lot of developers that reach this position it is not always what it seems.
From my experience the team leader role will usually fall into one of the 3 following categories:
- Team leader as Development manager
- “Normal” Team leader
- Team leader as technical lead/architect
Lets take a quick look at what each of the categories entails.

The challenge was to be able to create the necessary software during the weekend and if possible get it live for the charities to be able to use. The event was to start at around 5pm on the Friday night and coding to finish at 12pm on the Sunday when the teams would then present the software they had created to the other teams.
I travelled into the event with my co-worker Johan Barnard, we had no idea of what we would need to do or what sort of software was needed but we were looking forward to the challenge!
