  • Small-Footprint Laptop Lab

    Champagne Dev VMs on a Beer Budget Others have posted on this very topic, but I rebuild my home/dev VM lab this past weekend, and it went so well I thought I’d share the steps I went through, in case it helps someone else to get started.

  • It’s About Delivering Value, Stupid

    James Carville coined the phrase, “It’s the economy, stupid,” as part of Bill Clinton’s 1992 US Presidential campaign. I’m not fond of the “stupid” part. But I have also never successfully advised a governor to become President of the United States by unseating an incumbent President who enjoyed a 90% approval rating earlier in his presidency. I ...

  • Declarative Architectures in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

    I deal with computing architectures by first laying out requirements, and then laying in any constraints for it's success. Only then do I bring in computing elements to apply to the system. As an example, a requirement might be ''world-side availability'' and a constraint might be ''with less than 80ms response time and full HA'' or something ...

  • The Windows Azure Software Development Kit (SDK) and the Windows Azure Training Kit (WATK)

    Windows Azure is a platform that allows you to write software, run software, or use software that we've already written. We provide lots of resources to help you do that - many can be found right here in this blog series. There are two primary resources you can use, and it's important to understand what they are and what they do. The Windows ...

  • Windows Azure Database (SQL Azure) Development Tip

    When you create something in the cloud, it's real, and you're charged for it. There are free offerings, and you even get free resources with your Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) subscription, but there are limits within those. Creating a 1 GB database - even with nothing in it - is a 1 GB Database. If you create it, drop it, and create it again ...

  • The Importance of Paranoia for the Technical Professional

    I recently read a blog post from a technical professional who’s account had been hacked (http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2012/08/apple-amazon-mat-honan-hacking/all/)  – not because he used poor passwords or unsafe practices, but because the hackers used some social engineering to get around the safety he had put into ...

  • Windows Azure Visio Shapes

    Normally when I diagram a solution for a customer, I use whatever they are comfortable with. I do most of my work these days in OneNote, especially when it’s an Architecture Design Session (ADS), since I can capture notes, handwriting, drawings, web pages, whiteboards, camera shots and even voice. In fact you can search on most of those. ...
