New article: Building your own scheduler using .Net and Quartz.Net

I am finally back with a new article. July was busy for me. After 17 years in my previous house, I had to move to another one! But you are not here to ear me complaining.

I just have been able to publish my latest article.

I am a big fan of automating processes. So, when I want to take some time off, I don’t need to train somebody to run processes. Processes are running smoothly until … the Windows Task Scheduler decides for whatever reason that it just doesn’t launch your task for no other reason then who knows why! And if this job runs only every quarter, chances are that you will just not figure that it didn’t run until somebody wakes up!

Also, when you replace a computer (or a VM) on which tasks are running for a new one, you often have to recreate all the tasks one-by-one. I have tried to export them to re-import on the newer server but there is always a little something preventing from running as it should.

Or maybe you don’t want to go as far as replacing the Window Task Scheduler, you may just want to schedule some tasks inside your own application.

For your scheduling needs, there is a free component out there called Quartz.Net.
