Previously, I posted about adding Azure App Configuration and Feature Flags using Azure to an ASP.NET Core MVC application. In this post, we’ll follow the same basic process, but we’ll setup our Angular application to support the Azure Feature Flags. At this point, I’m assuming that you are familiar with the following items:Read More
When checking in code into source control, especially in a continuous integration and deployment process, it’s best to use pull requests. Using pull requests allows others, including virtual bots, to review your code and to ensure there are no build issues. I use this process frequently within GitHub when building my personal website.Read More
The Azure App Configuration library version 1.0.1 caused client side connection issues. I shared the message in my original post back on 6/23. On 6/29, I posted about a temporary work around to this problem. I was notified late yesterday that version 1.1.0 of the Azure App Configuration library has been officially released. You can grab the latest version by either visiting the official
@azure/app-configuration NPM page or by running
npm i @azure/app-configuration from a command line within your project.

On Wednesday this week, I wrote a short blurb about 2020 thus far. While we mostly cannot celebrate in the same manner that we normally would, Americans will still take today to pause and thank those that have served our country.

There are still many Americans that don’t feel free or independent. We have work ahead of us and I’m certain that we’ll get there. Let’s not dwell on the past but change the future.Read More
Earlier this week, Microsoft announced Pylance is available in the Visual Studio Code Marketplace. Pylance offers feature-rich language support for Python inside of VS Code. It depends on the core Python extension and provides type checking, auto imports, type information and more. While Python Language Server will still exist, the long term plan is to migrate users over to Pylance. Be sure to check out Pylance and download from the marketplace.Read More
