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…

Weekly Links – 9/9

Welcome back everyone, for another weekly links post. The important note here is its fall, which means kids are in school, leaves are going to start turning and …. So down to business: Development: Boot Performance with Compiled Bindings in Xamarin.Forms: I don’t get to do as much mobile development as I used to. But it still fascinates me how much Xamarin as a platform has grown. Compiled Bindings are pretty great. I don’t know that there’s much of a…

So containers have become an essential part of modern application development.

Now that being that I have been talking to a lot of people who use Monolithic applications and are looking for a way to break down their existing applications into a micro service approach and support the idea of using existing infrastructure, and don’t necessarily…

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…

Distributed Computing and Architecture Patterns

Distributed Computing and Architecture Patterns

So lately I’ve been doing a lot of work on distributed programming, and specifically looking less at projects that are living on-premise, but need to be moved to cloud, and more with projects that are born in the cloud and how to optimize.  What I’m talking about here is applicable for the “lift-and-shift” type of project. Ultimately the “cloud” is just like any other development projects, there are considerations that need to be handled as part of leveraging the environment…

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…
