Monitoring issues on Stack Overflow with serverless, CosmosDB and Teams

One of the responsibilities we have as Cloud Developer Advocates is having an understanding of the struggles of developers using the cloud in their daily tasks. One way to do that is to spend time looking over the latest questions on Stack Overflow with a little project called StackoverAzure. Instead of having yet another browser tab was to use serverless functions to monitor certain tags and send cards to our Teams room with the pertinent info for anyone on our team to quickly see the most recent unanswered questions. Concept Watch Stack Overflow for questions with the following parameters: Have NOT been answered. (no answer accepted) Tagged with azure Every 30 minutes, the process would grab the last fifty questions...


shell.azure.com - look Mom no install!

Checkout http://shell.azure.com! A dedicated experience in a browser. No installation of the Azure CLI and all you need is your Azure account credentials to get going. I have even configured mine to use tmux by editing the .tmux.conf. Even works on the iPhone (as expected). Give it a go and provide the team feedback...


Running the Azure Functions runtime in containers on Kubernetes and more

The Azure Functions team has been doing some great work lately and as a part of that work the runtime for the runtime of the serverless function was ported to .NET Core 2.0 in late September. This set the stage really for cross-platform development and running of Azure Functions and in November; Azure Functions on Linux was announced for Preview. What does it all mean?

In a project, developers might decide to use logical folder structures or naming conventions based on a framework or what just makes sense. Azure Resource Groups is described as the "logical group" for organizing your items where a group contains all related resources for an application. But what if there is a need to categorize or put multiple labels on each of these resources? For instance, When was the resource created? Who created it? Is it a demo, production, test? Who or what department is the application for? Tags enable this exact functionality. The excerpt from the...


Dipping the toe in the Azure Compute space and then some.

Over the last couple of weeks, I've just skimmed the areas of ARM templates, CLI, Docker on Linux, Azure Functions and AppService Web Apps. Check out these articles and let me know if there is something you'd like to see more on; there's a ton to talk about to solve any solution. dotnet new angular to Azure with Docker using CLI Visual Studio 2017 has been released and the features are great for Windows developers. However along with it comes .NET Core 1.0 tooling and large improvements to the command line experience for macOS and Linux users developing ASP.NET Core applications. One of the prevalent features shown off in VS 2017 is the Docker support and capabilities to...
