Automated Deployment to Azure Hosted Services

Azure Hosted Services offers several really awesome features over using physical servers or standard VM infrastructure. Two of these are the staged deployment model and management SDK, which includes a powershell module. Using these two features, we are going to build a deployment script that deploys a new set of services (servers) in Azure, using […]

Expanding an Existing Azure VM System Drive

I have an Azure VM that was created back when the C: drives had an 30GB size limitation (which leaves maybe 8GB after all the OS files, Windows updates, etc). This present a considerable challenge when I go to install something that has to be installed on the C: Drive, like Visual Studio 2013. Finding […]

Continuous Javascript Testing with Karma

I use a continuous testing tool named NCrunch for all of my .Net code. In fact, NCrunch has spoiled me so much that manually running tests is bordering on painful. I’ve gotten used to doing absolutely nothing and still having the latest build results, test results, code coverage, highlighted execution paths for failed tests, and […]

Combine Azure Storage Analytics Logs with Powershell

When you have Storage Analytics transaction logging turned on, it produces transaction log files for each service call you make to blob, table, or queue service. Unfortunately it captures these in multiple files per hour, stored in a folder hierarchy by service (blob, queue, table), year, month, day, and hour. Trying to dig through these […]

The automatic deployment option of Azure Web Sites is really cool and demos well. A few months ago I was curious how far I could push it, whether I could replace more complex projects that I currently deploy from my build server. I had read a couple posts on unit testing during deployment, but so […]

Unit Testing with Jasmine 2.0 and Require.JS

Jasmine 2.0 has changed how it loads and executes tests, using a boot script now to handle the details. If you try to plug some require() calls into the sample SpecRunner.html page, Jasmine will be done and finished before the require() statement loads the test modules and their dependencies. The problem is that RequireJS loads […]

Azure Storage SDK 3.0.2 and Preview Azure Storage Emulator 2.2.1

Late in November, the Azure Storage team announced an update of the Storage Library that corresponds with the “2013-08-15″ Storage API update. They weren’t explicit about it in the release post, but this was a major version upgrade to Azure Storage SDK 3.0. The 3.0.2 Storage SDK is not part of an official Azure SDK […]

2013 – Review of Writing

In 2013 I took on a slightly different approach to writing by putting more into each article with content, length and defining either what the topic was on or how the troubleshooting methods are taken. This, of course, meant my average blog count per mo…

ACL added security for Availability Group Listener in Azure

Prior to the release of supporting listeners for availability groups in Azure running Windows Server virtual machines, availability groups were supported but more so in a mirroring configuration.  This means, applications, services, or users would conne…

Introducing Windows Azure Infrastructure as a Service

If you haven’t heard about Azure yet, I’d be surprised. Cloud based Platform applications like Windows Azure SQL Databases (WASDs) have been around for several years, and are becoming highly popular.  WASDs (for example) don’t quite have all of the same…
