The Azure Issue I had (404 on Azure Websites)

A few weeks back some kind people following me on Twitter let me know that my site was down, returning the dreaded 404. As a result of that I learned a lot of new things about Azure, and I promised to let you all know what had happened and what the fix was. I’ve waited [...]

Setting up Azure alert rules

Setting up billing alert for Azure (preview)

I had a rather unpleasant experience with Azure yesterday where my site went down. I will share the full story with you later this week- but in short it was a combination of things I could have done and things ‘they’ could have done. One thing I should have done and that I didn’t know [...]

HDInsight and PoSh: The -Subscription parameter is deprecated, Please use Select-AzureSubscription –Current

The documentation for the cmdlets for HDInsight are not up to date, and therefore neither is the Get-Help on this one (today: July 1st 2014). I’m not sure if I’m misunderstanding something, or if the docs aren’t documented. But, If you run a simple cmdlet such as: Get-AzureHDInsightCluster -Subscription (Get-AzureSubscription -Current).SubscriptionId You will get the [...]

Replies from China

Its 4:15 AM and I should be sleeping as I’ve slept little since I came. I’ve battled a dodgy VPN connection for 3 hours to lessen the load and the painful slow RDP connection to my Azure VM (to access all blocked sites). I’ve spent the day licking my virtual wounds, mostly to my ego [...]

(Video) Learn Edge.JS part 1 : What is it?

Edge.js connects .Net and node in-process – it allows interoperability so we can leverage the two platforms together. This means that if you need something from .net, be that existing libraries or components, you can reuse them in Node. An obvious thing you might want for some situation is to leverage the multithreaded model of [...]

Azure of course! I’ve been wanting to dig deeper and learn more about Azure ever [...]
