Free eBook: DevOps with ASP.NET Core and Azure

This guide is focused on an end-to-end continuous deployment experience for .NET developers.

The emphasis is all around continuous integration, deployment, monitoring, and debugging. Near the end of the guide, recommendations for next steps are offered.

Microsoft Announces Visual Studio for the Mac, Then Yanks the Announcement

Earlier today, Microsoft’s MSDN site hosted an announcement that the company will be announcing a Visual Studio for the Mac preview at the Microsoft’s Connect(); conference later this week. A short time later the page was removed. Missing page: https://msdn.microsoft.com/magazine/ft.com/en-us/magazine/dd767791 Why the company decided to remove the blog post announcement is unknown. As in the past when this has happened, its possible that someone just pulled the posting trigger a bit too soon. Connect(); 2016 runs November 16-18 and can be live-streamed from this link: https://connectevent.microsoft.com/ The event is led by Executive Vice President Scott Guthrie, Principal Program Manager Scott Hanselman, and other industry innovators.

From here on – Automating the universe

So, it was really quiet here over the last two months and that had several reasons. I will talk about one of them now. I am changing, again. Or reinventing myself? Innovating myself? Whatever, I am changing jobs.

I am very excited about this […]

DevOps – PowerShell in a Continuos Integration pipeline

This is a recording of my 20mins session at the last Melbourne System Center, Infrastructure and Security User Group. It is a quick dive into PowerShell Desired State Configuration (PSDSC), Pester Unit Testing, Source Control with Gitlab, a Continuous Integration TeamCity server and a short intro into NuGet Package Management. This all falls under the big topic DevOps. This video is more a teaser of what can be done, it’s not a complete guide (those will follow), nor did I talk about every single aspect of it. Also I might have missed a couple of steps here because of time constraints. Enjoy the recording and comments are obviously most welcome.

PowerShell scripting guidelines

Like always, if people are talking languages they will have dialects or accents (I don’t ). PowerShell is not an exception here. There are so many people nowadays writing PowerShell all over the world or even in just one company, that there have to be some ground rules. Obviously PowerShell already has its own rules, otherwise it wouldn’t work, but just knowing the words doesn’t make it easier for everybody to understand. Especially in environments where a lot of people are working on the same scripts / code, there have to be rules so that anybody can go and understand and edit anybody’s script PowerShell scripting guidelines This here is […]
