Integration Tests in Azure Pipelines with ASP.Net Core and SQL on Docker

  • April 17, 2019
I usually like to keep my application dependencies such as the database, and emulators packaged in containers. Running the dependencies in containers gives me the ability to keep my development process fluid as I can bring up the dependencies to the desired state no matter how massively I deform them. In my CI pipelines, I enforce the execution of unit tests and integration tests on every build. Usually, running integration tests involve running test cases along with the dependency, which is a database most of the time.

Appropriately Release Resources From DotNet Core Application Deployed in Kubernetes Cluster

  • September 8, 2018
You have deployed your DNC (Dot Net Core) application on your Kubernetes cluster and to make it efficient, you have initialized resources, kept a database channel open, and did a ton of other things during the initialization of your application. Did you miss something? One of the critical tasks that you must do is cleaning up the resources, shutting down the open channels, and gracefully shutting off what you turned on and so on from your application when Kubernetes instructs your container to shut down.

Add DevOps To Your Existing Dockerized Applications With Azure DevOps Projects

  • July 26, 2018
As a cloud developer, the current offering to add support for DevOps (CI\CD) to an application always felt less optimal to me. In VSTS, tasks such as creating CI and CD workflows, linking the pipelines with code repository, and adding monitoring take a little time even though the quick start templates have considerably optimized the process. A new offering from Azure named Microsoft Azure DevOps Projects fills this gap in the DevOps offering.

Building Applications with Azure IoT Edge

  • April 25, 2018
I recently presented a session on building applications with Azure IoT Edge at the Global Azure Bootcamp, Sydney. In the field of IoT, edge analytics is not just important; it is a necessity. Azure IoT Edge solves a lot of edge analytics challenges in a unique manner that many organizations face. Azure IoT Edge brings the power of essential cloud services from the cloud to your on-premise devices. You can deploy either Azure service logic or your code to devices from the cloud interface without physically accessing the device.
