Great resource for finding Azure related material.

Build Azure

It’s generally difficult to find a good book on cloud and Microsoft Azure related material to help learn from. This can be extremely frustrating when you’re new to a technology and are looking for a concise source to get up to speed, and good books are the perfect solution to this. After some deliberation, I’ve decided to start a new project for Build Azure. The new project is the Build Azure Book Catalog, and it’s located at http://books.buildazure.com

Build Azure

azure-app-service-web-app_colorMicrosoft has been working for a couple years to add support to all existing Azure services, as well as a plethora of new services, within the Current Azure Portal (http://portal.azure.com). One of the huge services that wasn’t available in the Current Azure Portal until recently is Azure AD; which is still in Preview within the Current Portal. However, Azure Web Apps have been supported in the Current Azure Portal for about 2 years or so at this point, and Microsoft is taking this new / current portal migration even further…

Starting February 1, 2017, Azure Web Apps will no longer be available in the “Classic” Azure Portal (http://manage.windowsazure.com). For most the duality of the Portals has been a bit frustrating, and it’s relieving to see that Microsoft is making the move to not just add support for services in the Current Portal, but also remove them…

Ok so if your like me and tried installing Visual Studio 2017 RC, you were probably astonished at how fast it installs compared to previous version of Visual Studio. But as impressive at it is at installing, I ran into some compatibility issues with Visual Studio 2015, so I had to uninstall Visual Studio 2017 RC.

Now even with Visual Studio 2017 RC uninstalled, I ended up running into an issue when I was trying to open a  new or existing ASP.NET Core project. Here is the error I would get when trying to open my ASP.NET Core projects in Visual Studio 2015:

The following error occurred attempting to run the project model server process 1.0.0-preview4-004223

To resolve this, I had to go to directory “C:\Program Files\dotnet\sdk” and delete folder “1.0.0-preview4-004233” as shown here:

This then resolved my issue when trying to open an existing or new ASP.NET Core project in Visual Studio 2015.

Enjoy!

Observables in Angular 2 can be achieved using RxJS(Reactive Extensions for JavaScript). Observables is an ES7 feature so you need to make use of an external library to use it today. RxJS is a library that allows you to work with asynchronous data streams. So what are asynchronous data streams?

  • Asynchronous – we can call a function and register a callback to be notified when results are available, so we can continue with execution and avoid the Web Page from being unresponsive. This is used for ajax calls, DOM-events, Promises, WebWorkers and WebSockets.
  • Data – raw information in the form of JavaScript data types as: Number, String, Objects (Arrays, Sets, Maps).
  • Streams – sequences of data made available over time. Technically everything is stream.

Observables can help manage async data and a few other useful patterns. Observables are similar to Promises but with a few key differences. The first is Observables emit multiple…
