If you are intending on visiting Seattle anytime soon especially for the upcoming MVP Summit in March 2024 then this blog post will help. (you may need an esta, visa for the states – https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta) Where to stay, ok so there are lots of hotels, my advice is either choose to stay near Redmond, google for the Aloft Seattle Redmond, this is near to the campus but not much to do at night, or go for somewhere in Bellevue, last year I stayed at the Hilton Bellevue (Address: 300 112th Avenue Southeast, Bellevue, WA 98004, United States) and it was good, lots of other MVP’s were s ..read more

Some of the key features of Azure Front Door include: Global load balancing: Azure Front Door can intelligently distribute traffic across multiple backend se ..read more

This blog post covers my recent trip to Seattle for the Microsoft Ignite Conference in Seattle last week, I always give my honest opinion and have no filter, last years Ignite wasnt great, this years was very much improved and here is why. This years Ignite was in a new venue, right next door to last years but now its in the newer Seattle Convention Centre and the venue itself works great, not huge amounts of walking and the layout just works. The weather was good, the atmosphere was good all week, there was swag and even the Ignite bag option made a welcome return. Satya was in person for th ..read more

This past week I was joined my Marc Duiker on my Azure stream and Marc came on to cover off an intro to Dapr and show a few examples of why Dapr is such an interesting project if you are doing a Cloud Native project and especially if you are interested in learning more about Microservices and looking for a way to make the complex areas of microservices far less complex. “Dapr (Distributed Application Runtime) is a free and open source runtime system designed to support cloud native and serverless computing.

AZURE VM EXTENSIONS: PART 3 Refactoring our code
Azure Greg
by Gregor Suttie
9M ago
In this last part of talking about Azure VM Extensions I will make a couple of changes to refactor and make things better. Once you have more time, go back and refactor your code, its a good feeling to go back and improve upon the code. So in this case I wanted to use Managed Identities for the CustomScriptExtension and I couldn’t get it working at first and due to time pressures I resorted to using SAS tokens. The thing I soon realised was that this is not the best way to go and I really wanted to revisit the codebase and get Managed Indentites working. I see a lot of people created System As ..read more

This blog post covers some of the battles I have had trying to install some software onto a VM within Azure. There are many ways to go about this and at the end of the day, yeah you live to fight another day. High level requirements: 1 – Install Zabbix Agent (which is a windows service) onto the same VM and ensure the service starts correctly. As like most things in life there is more than one way to do something, I could have used RunCommands I could add onto the DSC and added this step into part 1 etc. etc. I went with using an Azure CustomScriptExtension, maybe not the best option, who know ..read more

This blog post covers some of the battles I have had trying to install some software onto a VM within Azure. There are many ways to go about this and at the end of the day, yeah you live to fight another day. High level requirements: 1 – Install Octopus Deploy Tentacle onto a VM and have the agent running. 2 – Install Zabbix Agent (which is a windows service) onto the same VM and ensure the service starts correctly. (I’ll cover this in part 2 of the blog post). Now as said previous, many ways to do this, I looked up what is available from Octopus Deploy as they always have good stuff, they use ..read more
