Power BI Embedded … confused?

Power BI Embedded … confused?

So I wanted to write this post, as I’ve gotten a lot of questions about this over the past year. Power BI embedded is a pretty awesome tool. The idea is this, “I want to get cool visualizations into my application, how do I do that?” The answer is Power BI Embedded, here’s a video for those unfamiliar with the product. But for me, the question that usually comes next is the one I want to cover here. “How do…

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.

So there’s a common question I’ve been getting a lot lately, and that’s “I want to learn Azure, where do I start?” And this is ultimately a very reasonable question, because as much as the cloud has permuted much of the digital world, there are still some organizations who have only recently started to adopt it. There are many reasons people would choose to adopt the cloud, scalability, cost, flexibility, etc. But for today’s post I’m going to focus on…

TerraForm Kubernetes Template

TerraForm Kubernetes Template

Hello All, I wanted to get a quick blog post out here based on something that I worked on, and finally is seeing the light of day.  I’ve been doing a lot of work with TerraForm, and one of the use cases I found was standing up a Kubernetes cluster.  And specifically I’ve been working with Azure Government, which does not have AKS available.  So how can I build a kubernetes cluster and minimize the lift of creating a cluster…

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.
