Return of weekly links – 12/30

Return of weekly links – 12/30

Hello all, so I know that I totally fell off the wagon when it comes to weekly links. December has been a crazy month, I had three business trips, getting ready for Christmas. Due to family coming to town we effectively had 3 Christmas’ and on top of that I got sick.

I’m not complaining just explaining what happened. The holidays are a rough time for a lot of people, and we’ve all had experiences we have to carry with us. So remember in all the craziness that some might be suffering in silence. If you find yourself in this position, please reach out. You are not alone and there are people to help you.

Down to the business…

Cool Stuff:

So as always I have a post here about something fun. And this week I wanted to post about how my wife blew me away with her gift this Christmas. We had our 11th anniversary at Dave and Busters, we decided to double down on stupid fun. When we walked in, they were having a silent auction for MakeAWish and when I was in the bathroom she bid on this item and won.

This is a picture from the Dark Knight, my favorite movie of all time, signed by Christian Bale and the late Heath Ledger.

Azure Compute – Searchable and Filterable

Azure Compute – Searchable and Filterable

Hello All, so a good friend of mine, Brandon Rohrer and I just finished the first iteration of a project we’ve been working on recently.  Being Cloud Solution Architects, we get a lot of questions about the different compute options that are available in Azure.  And it occurred to us that there wasn’t a way to consume this information in a searchable, and filterable format to get the information customers need.

So we created this site:

https://computeinfo.azurewebsites.net
This site scrapes through the documentation provided by Microsoft and extracts the information about the different types of virtual machines you can create in azure and provides it in a way that meets the following criteria:

  • Searchable
  • Filterable
  • Viewable on a mobile device

Hope this helps as you look at your requirements in Azure and build out the appropriate architecture for your solution.
