Cloud Scaling and Microservices

As you move to an automated pipeline of value, you will start to move to more isolated services that can expand and scale with demand while providing fault tolerance and redundancy.

We can help you work with Azure Service Fabric and Cloud Services to build multi-tenant architectures that scale with demand.

Managing images for Ghost

Ghost is getting better with image uploads, though I'm finding that managing them externally is much easier. Normally you can just directly upload an image when you write your blog post and it works fine. Sometimes, you already have an image and you'd like to just link to it. Ghost currently doesn't have an image search, so I don't know what the Url. Instead, I've started keeping all my images in a folder structure on OneDrive. I can build out the folder structure how I would like. It allows me to reuse an image for multiple posts as necessary Sharing an image on OneDrive To share an image on one drive, just add it to the folder OneDrive share on the hard drive. Next, grab a link to the shared image by right clicking on the file and selecting the 'More OneDrive sharing options'. From the menu, you can select

What exactly is a Software Craftsman?

I keep getting this question from non-techies and techies alike. Since I keep referring to myself in this manner, it is only fitting that I explain it. I will explain the simple version of it here, and then expand upon it in the next few posts. Any Craftsman To get started let's look at an analogy. Have you ever seen a truly beautiful piece of furniture in a magazine or a website? You know the furniture that I'm talking about, the kind that always looks good. Take for example this Ethan Allen chair from above. Sure that was created through a corporate process as it is massed produced, but to start with its a little more personal. A designer comes up with an idea, a concept, maybe a drawing or two. It's concept of how a chair will fit into a larger collection. The designer does not know how to

Agile is so emotional

I've taught how to use Team Foundation Server to many organizations through in person training and through Pluralsight videos. And I've always struggled with communicating the why regarding each of the fields in the work items. I'm pretty good at telling you what, but sometimes the why didn't come across effectively. I have recently realized that it is because I haven't been communicating the emotions that are required. It turns out that Agile and Scrum are very emotional and that it is through the emotions we are trying to appeal to the team. Emotional? What are you talking about? Well, I must not be far off since the Scrum Guide was updated by it's founders Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland to incorporate new Scrum Values. Oh sure, but values are not emotional ... aren't they? Isn't our belief in our values extremely emotional? I was watching a Tony Robbins video on

Easily updatable sidebar in Ghost

I really like the Ghost platform for blogging. It has been easy to setup and get started. I had it running locally in minutes. I even got it running on Windows in Microsoft Azure, though it did have a few challenges that I covered in my course for Pluralsight, Ghost Blogging Engine: A first look. As I have been building my own theme for this site, mostly to learn, but also to use as production site, I've run into some challenges. One of those is the ability to update the side bars without having to edit and redeploy the site. Instead I wanted to develop a strategy that uses the features of Ghost to edit the side bar. In this article, I show you how to do that simply Understanding the Challenge A typical approach to a blog is to create a sidebar that has some additional information, not directly

On May 3rd, Ken and I presented a talk to CMAP for Building a responsive SPA with ASP.NET Core, EF Core, and Google Polymer.

Authenticate to Trello in MS Office JavaScript Add-in

Dear Microsoft, Please, please stop relying on Internet Explorer to provide web browser components. It doesn't work as expected for the rest of the Internet. It requires too many hoops to jump through. It has cost too many hours of lost productivity. And it turns out EDGE isn't much better! Sincerely, Frustrated Developers everywhere! We have all been in that situation where we realize that Microsoft's browser technology is not keeping current with the rest of Internet. Sometimes we have no choice to use it as is with Microsoft Office JavaScript Add-ins. The Problem I'm writing a small MS Office Add-in which is going to integrate with Trello. So, one of the first tasks I have is to authenticate with Trello. It would seem simple, but it turns out IE gets in the way. IE and EDGE have a security 'feature' that does not allow a postMessage to be sent
