All right, everybody. Welcome back to another episode of Super excited…

In this episode I catch up with Kelsey Hightower about how to navigate your career in tech and what the Kubernetes landscape is going to look like in 2020.

Kelsey Hightower is a Staff Developer Advocate at Google Cloud Platform and has worn every hat possible throughout his career in tech but most enjoys leadership roles focused on making things happen and shipping software. Kelsey is a strong open source advocate focused on building simple tools that make people smile. …

Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) are considered by most to be the backbone of DevOps. Things start to get really interesting when you combine these practices with programmable infrastructure and a suite of services that allow you to automate the entire lifecycle of an application.

The goal with this guide is to give you a practical example of what that all looks like when you’re building, testing, and deploying applications with Azure DevOps Services. I’ll walk you through the end-to-end process of building a fully automated build and release pipeline for a Node and Express application. …

Public and private cloud platforms have changed the IT landscape. With virtualization and cloud computing, it’s easier than ever to spin up a fully functional application environment with a single button click or API call. The world of server deployment and administration is much different than it was ten years ago, and it will never be the same.

Based on all the excitement, headlines, and success stories coming out of tech news every day, there’s no doubt we’ll see even more container adoption going forward. But, it’s still very early in the game. And that means there’s a massive opportunity for those who embrace this new approach to building modern applications.

My goal with this tutorial is to hopefully spark your interest in this topic or give…

This is a tutorial for absolute beginners.

Whether you’re a developer or an operations engineer, it’s a good idea to start wrapping your brain around the fundamental concepts of serverless computing. The technology is still in its infancy, but I believe it will radically shift how many applications are built in the years to come.

In this guide, I’ll walk you through setting up a super basic serverless web application on Azure. Just a simple webform that sends and receives data to and from an Azure Function.

The HTML page for this serverless application will be hosted in an Azure…
