Creating KEDA Scalar in Azure Container Apps using Azure Portal
Visual Studio Geeks
by Utkarsh Shigihalli
2M ago
In this post, I would like to show you how we added custom scaling with KEDA using the Azure Portal — Thanks to the KEDA scaler, we have a dynamic scaling pool, which automatically scales when there are more jobs in the queue and scales back down when demand reduces. We run our Azure DevOps Build agents inside a container. This has allowed us to package various tools like kubectl, helm, and terraform are installed and available inside the agent image, which gives us control over versions of the tools we use — as we can execute our continuous integrations with consistent configuration. Also, ad ..read more

Trigger a Netlify build every day using GitHub Actions
Visual Studio Geeks
by Utkarsh Shigihalli
2y ago
I host this blog on Netlify and source control is managed using GitHub. Often, I end up writing few blog posts together, but not necessarily want all of them published together. Jekyll allows to put future date in the post and it will not be published until that date. This lets me write blog posts on same day but end up publishing them later based on the date set for the post. However, this means that when you run jekyll build posts with future dates will be skipped and I will need to run jekyll build again on the post date to publish the blog posts. Same applies to Netlify. Curious how we can ..read more

Setting up Azure Cosmos DB Emulator on Synology NAS

Cosmos DB Emulator is great for developing against Azure Cosmos DB in your local environment. If you want to run the emulator on Mac/Linux though, the emulator is now in preview mode at the time of writing this and uses Docker to make it available. Recently I wanted to setup Cosmos DB Emulator on Mac, but I did not want to set it up such that I keep it running always on my Mac. Instead, I decided to use my Synology NAS to host the emulator directly on my NAS as it is built on Linux and also because it allows the emulator running and available for me all the time. In this post we will see how t ..read more
