In Closing:

Current Workflow State:
Completed

Web/Mobile Developer:
Jason Silvestri

Primary Reason for Release:

The App Assembly, jSilvestri, BETA v 2024.0.0.008 Release, focuses on more updates in the Common Occupation Details section and the Blog section, with the blog post, entitled, "Jason Silvestri Helping Deal Hopper™ on Discovery of AspNet Core Blazor and .Net MAUI: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly".

Completed Action Items: 01.30.2024: 1 of 3

The action items with the workflow state Completed that made this release possible are as follows:

  • Upgraded BETA v 2024.0.0.007 to BETA v 2024.0.0.008 to continue in accordance with the business requirements outlined in standups, and to continue updates with the final days of remaining Asp.NET Core 6.1.208 (and higher) updates before our Asp.NET 7.0 releases.
  • Continued efforts in a major refactor of the Candidate Common Occupation Details section of the mobile & web apps, called, Skills, to show, in table format, all skills and the years experience, to make it easier for headhunters, recruiters, staffing firms and talent acquisition specialists to review my experience. See What Are Your Primary Skills, Tech Stacks & Years Experience? section for more details.
  • Continued efforts in a major refactor of the Candidate Common Occupation Details section of the mobile & web apps; by updating each section with its respective icons, fixed spacing, and removed unnecessary spacing after padding implementation.
  • Continued efforts in a major refactor of the Candidate Common Occupation Details section of the mobile & web apps, by updating each section’s positioning and subsequent link structures. This needs more work, but surely close. Worth the check-in and deployment.
  • Updating the Jason-Silvestri-2024-Resume-Talent-Profile-Occupation-Details Word & PDF file generators as I go along with updates. See, Generate PDF or Word of all Occupation Details for more details.
  • Made Updates to the Blog Post, entitled, "Jason Silvestri Helping Deal Hopper™ on Discovery of AspNet Core Blazor and .Net MAUI: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly". See the Jason Silvestri Helping Deal Hopper™ on Discovery of AspNet Core Blazor and .Net MAUI: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly blog post for more details.

Completed Action Items: 01.30.2024: 2 of 3

The action items with the workflow state Completed that made this release possible are as follows:

  • Continued efforts in a major refactor of the Candidate Common Occupation Details section of the mobile & web apps, called, Skills, to show, in table format, all skills and the years experience, to make it easier for headhunters, recruiters, staffing firms and talent acquisition specialists to review my experience. See What Are Your Primary Skills, Tech Stacks & Years Experience? section for more details.
  • Made simple update to Occupation Details, where I updated the section, entitled, “Project Management (Scrum) Styles” section to include a custom style I invented, entitled, “Tiles™”. This concept will be explained more in future releases. I also updated the H3 headings to instead use the H4 Headings, except for the Resume section. The smaller fonts look better and are easier to read, despite the Heading demotion.
  • Made semi-complex update to Occupation Details, where I updated any sub sections, we feel needs updating asap, with an alert that describes it, but also shows the Employment Styles as the example. See, Project Management Scrum Types for more details.
  • Removed “I must see final resume” alert from resumes for now (located at bottom of section). We may add it back in the future, but for now it’s busy enough. Any headhunter, recruiter, staffing firm agent or talent acquisition specialist modifying my resumes are going to modify it without permission anyway. See, Latest 2024 Resumes for more details.
  • Final slimmed down words in all resumes download links, so they look better in smaller device views. See, Latest 2024 Resumes for more details.
  • Updating the Jason-Silvestri-2024-Resume-Talent-Profile-Occupation-Details Word & PDF file generators as I go along with updates. See, Generate PDF or Word of all Occupation Details for more details.
  • Adding Social Link Updates for release.

Completed Action Items: 01.30.2024: 3 of 3

The action items with the workflow state Completed that made this release possible are as follows:

  • Made simple update to Occupation Details, where I updated  All Previous Section and Next Section link displays to remove the “Section” verbiage from the links, so all three links (Previous, Next & Top links) reside on the same line when we review links via smaller devices. I’ll be honest. It doesn’t look right. See What Are Your Primary Skills, Tech Stacks & Years Experience? section for more details.
  • Made simple update to Occupation Details, where I updated  the new alert boxes to a more grammar friendly of the message.
  • Updated About Us page to refactor padding across primary call-to-action section. In addition, updated sub call to actions. See, About Jason Silvestri for more details.
  • Updated About jSilvestri Apps page to page to refactor to fix content that describes my goals for 2024. Right now, my message references 2023 talk, and some of my objectives are a little different. See, About jSilvestri Apps for more details.
  • While making updates to About Us page, I inadvertently found a fix primary container bug, which had the main CSS selector reading, “section-About-info". We don’t use that naming convention. Almost always snake case. With that said, I found and fixed 8 instances of this to be “section-about-info”. See, About Jason Silvestri for more details.
  • Updated Home page to finally use the <small> CSS Selector to modify the “On-The-Market call to action for Headhunters, Recruiters, Staffing Firms, & Talent Acquisition Specialists” to make it a little smaller (all that verbiage looks better, smaller). See, Home Page for more details.
  • Made big update to Occupation Details, where I concluded the primary efforts of the section, entitled, “What Are Your Primary Skills, Tech Stacks & Years Experience?” section to include most skills and years experience. See, What Are Your Primary Skills, Tech Stacks & Years Experience? section for more details.

In-Work Action Items:

The action items with the workflow state In-Work that contributed to this release being possible are as follows:

  • One thing still ongoing (and should be approached carefully as I do) is handling obselete dependency injections, service references, etc., which directly relate to our migration from Asp.NET Core 3 to Asp.NET Core 6. To be expected.
  • Concluding any more SEO based page updates with page-to-page titles, keywords, descriptions, etc., it would be good to finish.
  • The DoorDash End Article still needs immediate improvement.
  • The sitemap, by adding blog section, managed accounts, the new Occupation Details friendly URLs, etc.
  • We have a complete Privacy Policy, Cookie Privacy Policy and Terms still need to be converted from World doc “words” to HTML. The sooner the better.
  • Switch Caps flag back to true and fix bug.

The App Assembly, jSilvestri, BETA v 2024.0.0.004 Release, focuses on the continued Common Occupation Details Refactor efforts, such as the new Skills tables, cleanup of content, and other efforts to make it easier for head hunters, recruiters, staffing agents and talent acquisition specialists to read and retrieve my information more effectively.

Completed Action Items:

The action items with the workflow state Completed that made this release possible are as follows:

  • Upgraded BETA v 2024.0.0.003 to BETA v 2024.0.0.004 to continue in accordance with the business requirements outlined in standups, and to continue updates with the final days of remaining Asp.NET Core 6.1.208 (and higher) updates before our Asp.NET 7.0 releases.
  • Continued efforts in a major refactor of the Candidate Common Occupation Details section of the mobile & web apps; updating the Skills section to show, in table format, all skills and the years experience, to make it easier for head hunters, recruiters, staffing firms and talent acquisition specialists to review my experience. See What Are Your Primary Skills, Tech Stacks & Years Experience? section for more details.
  • Put some decent effort into the Jason-Silvestri-2024-Resume-Talent-Profile-Occupation-Details Word & PDF documents. Added a lot more content that is new on the mobile & web apps, cleaned up content overall, etc.
  • Updated Release Note links, titles & description mechanics to make things easier to read.
  • Updated primary footer and finally fixed Twitter Followers and Toppler Triballers alignment issue on iPhones... Again...
  • Looked into GIT/ DevOps Commit, Pull, Push and/or Sync issues. (a bug in Visual Studio). Testing this release once deployed will be understand if it was in fact an authentication issue due to the Azure Portal orphaning issues we know exist, and Azure Developers and I have been troubling shooting so other customers can benefit from our LIVE testing sacrifice.

In-Work Action Items:

The action items with the workflow state In-Work that contributed to this release being possible are as follows:

  • Adding Blog Post, entitled, "Blazor, .NET MAUI, the Good, the Bad & the Ugly".
  • FAQ page is EXTREMELY OUTDATED. We need to clean that up.
  • One thing still ongoing (and should be approached carefully as I do) is handling obselete dependency injections, service references, etc., which directly relate to our migration from Asp.NET Core 3 to Asp.NET Core 6. To be expected.
  • Concluding any more SEO based page updates with page-to-page titles, keywords, descriptions, etc., it would be good to finish.
  • The DoorDash End Article still needs immediate improvement.
  • The sitemap, by adding blog section, managed accounts, the new Occupation Details friendly URLs, etc.
  • We have a complete Privacy Policy, Cookie Privacy Policy and Terms still need to be converted from World doc “words” to HTML. The sooner the better.
  • Switch Caps flag back to true and fix bug.

In Closing:

This release has already been deployed to Production successfully!

I expect the BETA v 2024.0.0.005 release to include the final implementation of one or more action items that still had the workflow state In-Work described in this build.

  • With Advanced A.I., I created a rather helpful set of regular expressions, and then used these regular expressions to create middleware that serves release notes to visitors in a more user friendly manner. For example, now, instead of visitors needing to review or remember a more complex link to release notes, such as, www.jsilvestri.com / home /bug_fixes_and_updates #jasonSilvestriRm2024m0r0b002 you can use www.jsilvestri.com/releases/2024-0-0-002.

  • Continued efforts in a major refactor of the Candidate Common Occupation Details section of the mobile & web apps: added a data table matrix of skills and years experiences, for easier ingestion, instead of the outdated, comma seperated paragraph previously available. See What Are Your Primary Skills, Tech Stacks & Years Experience? section for more details.
  • Continued efforts in a major refactor of the Candidate Common Occupation Details section of the mobile & web apps: I also cleaned up a lot of dl, dd & dt showcased content, added H1-H6 instead (where applicable).

Jason Silvestri

Primary Reason for Release:

The Application Assembly jSilvestri BETA v 2023.6.1.218 Release handles the Door Dash End Blog Post (a.k.a., Not a Good Day to Be a Door Dasher), as well as updating a new version of Monster resumes, Work Offer Solicitation Responses, etc.

Completed Action Items:

The action items with the workflow state Completed that made this release possible are as follows:

  • Upgraded BETA v 2023.6.1.217 to BETA v 2023.6.1.218 to continue in accordance with the business requirements outlined in standups, and to continue updates with the final days of remaining Asp.NET Core 6.1.208 (and higher) updates before our Asp.NET 7.0 releases.
  • Updated a new version of Monster resumes, with respects to providing original link resources back to Candidate Common Occupation Details , instead of tinyUrl, after some recruiters, staffing firms & talent acquisition specialists reported having block issues; their company firewall would block TinyUrls.
  • I created some more final pages and blog images, content, etc. for the DoorDash End Blog articles.
  • Finally created the Work Offer Solicitation responses that many of my recruiter, staffing firm & talent acquisition specialist friends want to start seeing again.
  • Fixed JSX Slugify issue with DoorDash, Uber Eats & Grub Hub custom user interface controllers.

In-Work Action Items:

The action items with the workflow state In-Work that contributed to this release being possible are as follows:

  • Concluding any more SEO based page updates with page-to-page titles, keywords, descriptions, etc., it would be good to finish.
  • The DoorDash End Article needs immediate improvement.
  • The sitemap, by adding blog section, managed accounts, etc.
  • We have a complete Privacy Policy, Cookie Privacy Policy and Terms still need to be converted from World doc “words” to HTML. The sooner the better.
  • Switch Caps flag back to true and fix bug.

In Closing:

This release has already been deployed to Production successfully!

I expect the BETA v 2023.6.1.219 release to include the final implementation of one or more action items that still had the workflow state In-Work described in this build.

Update 003. Added a Few New Blog Posts with More to Come



Status: Implemented


It has been a very long time since I made a blog post of any kind. Whether it is hunting for the next big contract or fulltime, working with Recruiters and Talent Acquisition Specialists around the World (literally) or on site working with one of their clients, there really hasn't been enough time to make the time required to make a post. In my defense, however, as shown in Figure 3 below, I really do not want to make blog posts just because and/or for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) purposes. The content matter must.... Well... Matter.


Figure 3: New Blog Posts:


Jason Silvestri 2022 - Blog Post Page Updates

With that said, I have a couple really important topics with respects to the complex Lifecycles and Workflows I developed, and use, every day with recruiters and talent acquisition specialists to obtain that offer letter all sides once, to the new and exciting development technologies I use today, like Asp.NET Core 6 & Blazor, both 2022 versions of the .NET flavor, that is so powerful, it is now 7x faster than Java, NodeJS and many more technologies. It is baffling to say the least and a very exciting time to be a developer. Check out my blog section for more details.

Update 002. Added a New Bug Fixes and Updates Section to the Application



Status: Implemented


You guessed it! Yes, as shown in Figure 2 below, the section you are viewing now is the new Bugs, Fixes and Updates section of the jSilvestri.com Web Applicaiton. Most recent bug fixes and updates will be found here.

Most Recent Bugs & Fixes



This section outlines most (not all) bug fixes made recently. These bug fixes are almost always a bug found by me or a visitor to the jSilvestri.com web application, which causes a problem in some way to an existing feature or section that does not seem intended. It is possible that a Bug Fix really isn't a bug fix just yet. Be sure to check the status of each fix below.


Bug 004. If I fill Out the Contact Form and try to Submit It, I get an Error.


Build: 2023.0.0.21
Date Reported:  

Current Workflow State: In-Work


If a user tries to fill out the contact form to reach out to us for support or service, they get an error. The mobile and web application experiences do make the user aware of the issue, explains that the team is working on the issue, and that they do not need do anything more to help solve the issue. Still, they cannot submit the form! This is an issue that is unacceptable. The plan is to…

The Problem:

There is a bug where any user that tries to use the Contact Form gets an error upon submission of that form.

Yes, if a user tries to fill out the contact form to reach out to us for support or service they get an error. Conversely, the mobile and web applications do make the user aware of the issue, explains that our team is working on the issue, and that they do not need do anything more to help solve the issue. Still, you cannot submit the form! This is an issue that is unacceptable, and it is being worked on as we write.

The steps we had to take to replicate the issues are as follows:

  • Go to the Contact page.
  • Fill out all form fields.
  • Pass the Captcha test to ensure you are not a robot.
  • Click the Submit button to submit the form.
  • An Error is displayed with a generic error message (by design), stating there was an issue, we are working on it, etc., etc., as shown in Figure 4.1 below. The Figure 4.1.1 below that is a closeup of the same Figure.

In Closing:

As soon as we can release a fix to this issue we absolutely will deploy to production. It is an obvious bottleneck that should not be, and is not, acceptable.

I expect the 2023.0.0.22 release to have this final implementation. It will not be considered a bug fix. If anything, an update.

Bug 003. Anywhere a Phone Number is Required You Must Provide Hyphens for Phone Numbers to Validate Successfully, and for the Form to Submit.


Build: 2023.0.0.21
Date Reported:  
Date Bug Fixed: 

Current Workflow State: Completed


This release is solely to make a fix to a bug that went from a medium, important enough, “We’ll get to it soon fix” priority, to a full-blown, critical “43% of all users can’t submit a contact form”, with the issue effecting all end user experiences that rely on their iPhone 12+ Pro (or lower) phones to submit our primary Contact forms successfully. Like, wait, what? Right… Exactly…

The Problem:

There is a bug where any phone number used, on any form across our mobile & web applications, encounters the issue where the phone number must have hyphens that separate each phone number segment of their phone number, for it to be valid. The form will not submit until you use the hyphens. This went from a "I'll get to it" bug to a critical "All iPhone users can't submit forms" issue, within literally a minute or two upon discovery, as most errors of that caliber do, after Bella Silvestri, a member of my personal Q&A team, discovered the issue when testing the primary contact form just hours ago, using versions of iPhones.


The young and talented Bella Silvestri discovered that iPhone users, using iPhone 12 or lower, do not have the characters (like hyphens) within the native, digital, keyboard/keypad, when using their native phone's browser’s to fill out common forms you find on most sites. In our case, it was the very important Contact form.

The steps we had to take to replicate the issues are as follows:

  • Go to the Contact page.
  • Fill out, either just the phone number and/or all form fields, including phone numbers.
  • If you provide a phone number with just the numbers, no delimiters like spaces and/or hyphens, and you will not be able to submit the form until you discover, on your own, that a phone number with hyphens may be the required format. Not uncommon, but certainly not obvious either.
  • Click the Submit button to submit the form or ensure the phone number has focus again after a change.
  • An Error is displayed with a generic error message (by design), stating the phone number you provided is not valid, as shown in Figure 3.1 below, and will not be until you provide a format with hyphens (which may not even be obvious at the time). Figure 3.1.1 below that is a closeup of the same, and Figure 3.1.2, below that, is another closeup, showing the work around to ensuring the phone number can at least be validated and the form submitted.

The Solution:

There is a bug where any phone number used, on any form across our mobile & web applications, encounters the issue where the phone number must have hyphens that separate each phone number segment of their phone number, for it to be valid. The form will not submit until you use the hyphens. This went from a "I'll get to it" bug to a critical "All iPhone users can't submit forms" issue, within literally a minute or two upon discovery, as most errors of that caliber do, after Bella, a member of my personal Q&A team, discovered the issue when testing the primary contact form just hours ago, using versions of iPhones.

The young and talented Bella discovered that iPhone users, using iPhone 12 or lower, do not have the characters (like hyphens) within the native, digital, keyboard/keypad, when using their native phone's browser’s to full out common forms you find on most sites. In our case, it was the very important Contact form.

To aid in the QA (Quality Assurance) of our mobile & web applications, and to prove this fix is present in this build, the steps you can take to replicate the proof-of-the-fix are as follows:

  • Please Note: these steps are here to prove the phone number is valid and the Contact form can be submitted. The fix does not cover any further scope of work (e.g., for example, whether the form submission itself was successful). 
  • Go to the Contact page.
  • Fill out, either just the phone number, and/or, all form fields, including phone numbers.
  • If you provide a phone number with just the numbers, no delimiters like spaces and/or hyphens or decide to provide spaces and/or hyphens, the validation of the phone number is valid as expected, and you can submit the form once you have completed the Captcha test, as shown in the closeup Figure 3.2.1 & Figure 3.2.2 below.

In Closing:

The one thing I would add, better said, the one thing this fix doesn’t have, (e.g., a fix I want implemented as soon as possible), is that there is nothing stopping a person from using a combination of those characters that make up the conditions, and although still considered valid phone numbers, inconsistent, nonetheless. For example, using a hyphen to make the first delimiter separation of numbers, followed by a space instead of a hyphen to make the next, or vice-versa, and so-on, and so-forth (i.e., 508-555 1212, 508555-1212, etc.). Are these valid phone number formats? Sure, but it’s the inconsistency of the data that might one day cause a conflict with this process or that process, even if the current build handles the issue gracefully like it does now.

I expect the 2023.0.0.22 release to have this final implementation. It will not be considered a bug fix. If anything, an update.

Bug 002. Password Resets Don't Work. I Don't Receive an Email and I also Get an Error Page.


Build: 2023.0.0.13
Date Reported:  
Date Bug Fixed: 

Current Workflow State: Completed


Users reported having issues with contacting the jSilvestri.com team initially. Then, however, the issue became a broader emailing issue. New visitors and existing users were having problems with things like doing a password reset, which is actually a more important issue and took priority.

The steps we had to take to replicate the issues are as follows:

  • Go to the Login page.
  • Click the Forget Password? link.
  • Fill out the Forget Password? form with the email associated to your account, as shown in Figure 1.1 below.
  • Click the Submit button to submit the form.
  • An Error page is displayed with a generic error message (by design), stating there was a problem with our last request, as shown in Figure 1.2 below.
  • There is NO email sent to the new visitor or existing user providing password reset instructions.

It ended up being an issue with Azure and a subscription service with respects to our primary Email API service. Figure 1.1, Figure 1.2, Figure 1.3 & Figure 1.4 above shows the progress of change.


Now, as shown in Figure 1.3 above, if you are trying to reset your password and you submit the form with appropriate information, you should see a page that tells you an email was sent. Most importantly, you should now receive an email with instructions on how to reset your password as well, as shown in Figure 1.4 above.

Bug 001. Home Page Blog Posts Section Links Don't Work


Build: 2023.0.0.000
Date Reported:  
Date Bug Fixed: 

Current Workflow State: Completed


You have no idea how happy I am this is fixed! This problem has been around since the release of the jSilvestri.com web application. It also haunted my dreams. The issue was that no one could click links off to new blog posts. However, mobile device users could touch and click. The issue was on tablet and desktop computers in specific.


Figure 1.1: Before:

Jason Silvestri 2022 -Home Page Blog Post Issue - Before Shot

Figure 1.2: After:


Jason Silvestri 2022 -Home Page Blog Post Issue - After Shot

It ended up being a bug in a 3rd party helper script, Owl Carousel, and it took some serious digging and custom updates to the JavaScript original source code. Figure 1.1 & Figure 1.2 above shows the change.


Aside from the actual bug fix, I also cleaned up the post, including copy-writing, look and feel, content positioning and more, as shown in After shot, above.
