Hi all,

A video of a talk I did on “Overview of Azure” to on an internal conference at tretton37. It’s a comprehensive but brief overview of Microsoft Azure

It’s been a while. It seems like I took a longer than usual(even for a lazy person like me) break from blogging. Well, I hope that’s about to change. With newly found inspiration I decided to “treat” you with some new stuff 🙂

Here is a video of a talk I did on “Overview of Azure” to on an internal conference at tretton37. It’s a comprehensive but brief overview of Microsoft Azure. I go trough cloud computing basics, patterns and terminology, and the fundamentals of Microsoft Azure itself, including virtual machines, web sites, cloud services, and building blocks for applications.

Now, with the risk of undermining myself from the get-go I will say that I don’t consider my self a good public speaker so maybe you should not get your hopes up too high 🙂

Update(25-08-2017): As it has been pointed out to me by a dear friend of mine, at around min 45, when I talk about the Traffic Manager, I talk about “this DNS and that DNS”. There is no such thing, there is only one DNS, what I probably meant is different endpoints determined by the “one” DNS.

“Microsoft Azure Traffic Manager allows you to control the distribution of user traffic for service endpoints in different datacenters. Service endpoints supported by Traffic Manager include Azure VMs, Web Apps, and cloud services. You can also use Traffic Manager with external, non-Azure endpoints.

Traffic Manager uses the Domain Name System (DNS) to direct client requests to the most appropriate endpoint based on a traffic-routing method and the health of the endpoints. Traffic Manager provides a range of traffic-routing methods and endpoint monitoring options to suit different application needs and automatic failover models. Traffic Manager is resilient to failure, including the failure of an entire Azure region.”

Here you can find more on the subject.

Drop your thoughts in the comments bellow, all input is welcome, good or bad.

Till next time….Happy coding.

I have been programming since I was 11 years old (Yes, I'm one of those, for real). First programming language I learned was BASIC, on a Commodore64. Then around high-school it was C and Assembly. Just before and during university days it was C++. I started doing some professional work during this period, part of the reason why I dropped out of uni in my final year. I have never stopped since then. Going through a plethora of technologies ranging from C and Assembly languages, Delphi to C++, C#, Java and so on and so forth... trough 20 (and more, who counts, does it even matter) years of software development. I have not lost even a single bit of my ambition and love for the craft from those first young days, nor the energy...I absolutely love what I do. I like to get my hands into all aspects of software development. Now-a-days I use mainly Microsoft related technologies .NET C#, with a lot of database design/management usage of SQL server, but not in any way limited to that.
