Covering Multiple Grounds

I am of belief that we should have reach beyond the work we must do. I feel blessed as growing up, my father had a repair shop on side besides being employed as an Electrical Operator in a factory that built train coaches. Being of curious kind, I got plenty of opportunity to get electrical shock, hence I learned to be very careful and respect this entity that runs our world.
Now my father is retired he still has a small shop beside our home. Recently he got an electrical winding machine to do winding of fan coils. Basically it wound coils you see in the picture. Everything was not dandy from get go as the machine was not particularly of high standards, there were a lot of cutting and patching to do, for it to get to point where it wound the coils reasonably well. One thing that gives me comfort is there will be lot less bandage on my father's fingers as the machine will wind coils for him.
Getting to point, go out and do stuff beyond your comfort zone and be mindful and respect the force you deal with. What I learned by dismantling electrical appliance, has gave me confidence to work on IOT devices, which in turn helped me automate my home, which in-turns makes me feel good about automation and which I believe will reflect in work I do i.e. Integrating enterprise application. Last but not least, have fun!

BizTalk Deployment Framework fix for compatibility issues with BizTalk 2016

Objective My objective was to modify BizTalk Deployment framework source, with the intend of getting it to work with BizTalk 2016, as it does not work out of the box with BizTalk 2016.
Source Location BizTalk Deployment Framework source is located at CodePlex and downloaded from below link It has BTDF 6.0 under dev folder and BTDF 5.0- 5.6 under release folder. BTDF 5.6 release version is more suited, as it is a stable release, hence it is modified to suit our need. All the references going forth are from the 5.6 release folder.
Modifications Below is the modification that were done in order to get BTDF 5.6 release version, working.    1.Added copy of BizTalk 2016 SSOClient to \Tools\SSOSettingsFileImport\ExternalReferences\BTS2016\Microsoft.BizTalk.Interop.SSOClient.dll, we will use as reference later. 2.In solution, \Tools\SSOSettingsFileImport\SSOSettingsFileImport.sln clone projects SSOSettingsEditorBTS2013R2, SSOSettingsFile…
