[Azure] News for Developers, December 2018

This entry is part 19 of 20 in the series Azure news for Developers

Happy new year everyone! To start off a brand new year, here’s the round-up of 2018’s final month!

Are you having trouble keeping track of everything that’s going around in Azure? You’re not alone! In an effort to do so myself, I’m starting a monthly series called “News for developers” which is exactly that: a summary of all of the Azure flavored news specifically for software developers. Now this is based on my personal feeds and my personal opinion, so you might miss things or see things which in your opinion do not matter. Feel free to comment below and I’ll see what I can do for the next edition. And honestly, this is more a personal reference than anything else so having actual readers would already be awesome 🙂 Enjoy!

[Azure] Your first Azure project

Although Azure is definitely not new any more, there are still a lot of developers, product owners, testers and other project members out there who have never seen it or worked with it. On the Azure projects I embark on, I notice that this is usually a difficulty, which surprised me at first. But there are repeating patterns and lessons to be learned here, so I’m hoping to address some of those with this blog post. Hope it helps!

  1. It’s a platform, not a feature
  2. It’s the cloud, Microsoft deals with security!
  3. We’re DevOps, we can manage
  4. I don’t understand it and therefore: Azure sucks!

[Azure] Deploying a Service Fabric cluster with custom SSL + client cert authentication

Within my current project we’re using Service Fabric in Azure to deploy a micro service (like) architecture. Upon a redesign of some parts of the solution, I decided to check whether I could improve our Service Fabric configuration. There were two things I wanted to achieve:

  1. Run the cluster on a custom URL, secured with a custom certificate.
  2. Use a client certificate for authentication of Azure DevOps deployments.

I’ll come to the why part of these requirements below.

[Azure] Removing Debugger NAT rules for service fabric load balancer

Sometimes your project forces you to do something you rather wouldn’t: debug in staging or production. Although you should definitely try to avoid these situations, sometimes sh*t just happens and that’s fine. If your project is running on Service Fabric, Azure offers you the option to attach a debugger right from within Visual Studio. This is a very powerful option which creates a connection between VS and your service fabric nodes in order to communicate with the remote debugger.  Read More
