... well, not exactly a year since I posted my first blog in Sep 2019 (shortly after joining the Azure Advocates team!) 😉 But, since then its been a steady blogging cadence and I have been loving it so far 💖
Here is a quick rundown of the content over the past few months. Hopefully, you will find some of these useful 😀 As always, I would love to get your feedback and comments!
Most of the Kubernetes topics revolved around the basics, which I decided to cover as a part of the "Kubernetes in a Nutshell" blog series. It might come in handy if you want to learn about Kubernetes foundations such as Stateless app orchestration, Volumes, Services, etc.
I plan to focus on wrapping up the "Kubernetes in a Nutshell" series and cover other topics in the near future.
Kafka blog posts had a Kubernetes flavor as well - Kafka Streams application Kubernetes and the Kubernetes components required to run stateful Kafka Streams applications. One-off blogs included connecting to Azure Event Hubs Kafka endpoints using Sarama Go client and an frequently asked question.
KEDA related blogs include how to auto-scale your Kubernetes apps with Prometheus and KEDA and a short write-up for those who want to hack on the KEDA project
More OSS focused content coming next year! 🙌
This was a mix of Azure Kubernetes Service, such as adding persistent storage to your Kubernetes apps on Azure, using AKS service principal to access other Azure services, etc. as well as other posts covering topics such as:
- Tutorial on how to build a Serverless API backend for Slack,
- Developing apps with Azure Cognitive Services,
- Quickly testing connectivity to your Azure Event Hubs for Kafka cluster, without writing any code, etc.
That's it for me. How was your
dev.to journey in 2019 😀 ?
See you in 2020!
