Dev at Work: Sprint Bulbasur and Azure ping service with Application Insights

Today we started a new sprint, Sprint Bulbasur. We’ve never named our sprints before, but I suggested that we do that to make our sprints more fun. Jonas suggested Pokémon names and Mathias agreed, and with that it was decided that our sprints will have Pokémon names. The sprint planning yesterday started with some information […]

Getting Started with Azure Translator API

My dear friend Jonas is currently learning Chinese as his partner is from China. She is learning Swedish, and he is learning Chinese. Since we now work together I get to hear about his progress pretty much every day, and on several occasions, he has expressed his frustration with the quality of translation and study […]

Logging SQL Queries with Application Insights

The more I use Log Analytics the bigger the fan of Application Insights I’m becoming. The query language is fantastic, the Application Insights service and tooling around it amazing. Yesterday I added Application Insights logging in our QA environment as well, to track SQL queries in particular so we can create some clever queries that […]

Querying across mulitple Application Insights apps/resources with Log Analytics

Log Analytics has scope functions that lets us do many interesting things, and one very useful thing is to do queries across Application Insights resources. Each service we have uses its own Application Insights resource/instance, as we want to separate the metrics collected for each service- and it makes sense as they are deployed to […]

Azure Portal: The missing ClearDB MySQL database

I moved my website to Azure a long time ago, and at the time I created a MySQL database that was added as a so-called ‘linked resource’.  The database itself was easily managed from the provider, ClearDB, and to access the provider site I would simply click on the ‘Manage’ link under my linked resources […]

Ten ways to minimize Azure costs

Our team went all in in when we went to the cloud, and with full access to the accounts and the cards registered to them we gladly started shopping around trying out X and Y on Azure. Before we knew it we were looking at a sharply sloped graph, pointing straight to heaven were apparently […]

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

Continuing on the previous blog post that covered how to set up billing alerts (to avoid some not so fun situations with Azure that I’ll tell you more about as soon as I’m done talking with support) here is a post on setting up a simple alert rule. It’s beyond easy to setup, all you […]

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 […]

Creating and uploading to Azure blob storage with Azure PowerShell

I’ve started a new video and audio series (I guess we can them podcasts?) with ‘(not so) Stupid Questions’, and while I’ve chosen to have the videos on YouTube (for now) the question was where to put the audio file? Azure of course! I’ve been wanting to dig deeper and learn more about Azure ever […]
