In this episode we take an in-depth look at Azure Container Instances, and what makes this service so useful. We discuss running containers locally and also explain what containers are. Running containers in the cloud are made possible through several services, so we also position Azure Containers Instances with the other services.
Working remotely on files and code is often cumbersome and a tiresome exercise. With Visual Studio Code and the Remote Development extension, developers can now easily create SSH-tunnels to remote systems and work with files as if they were local. We discuss the options on this, and how to set it up.
In this episode, we discuss about the Chaos Engineering methodology. The idea is to have a disciplined approach to experimenting with software systems in production to build confidence to withstand issues and unexpected conditions.

This episode is a bit different! We talk about one of our ideas we came up with during our regular coffee calls (the ones we still have but do not record as podcast episodes), and the idea of replacing Google Analytics came up. We discuss the solution and how we used Azure services to build a simple analytics and tracking solution for our blogs.
Join us in this episode where we chat about Azure Front Door. After discussing about the Web Application Firewall in a previous episode it was a good opportunity to focus next on Azure Front Door and what it is.
In this episode, we take a look at Web Application Firewall, or WAF. We've previously discussed about Azure CDN (Episode 023) and remote access (Episode 009) so now it was a good time to focus on WAF itself. We also reminisce a little bit about the past when installing a firewall meant spending nights configuring routing and networks and access rules. Pricing for WAF is also curiously complex, so our take on that is also included. In the end, we have a small raffle announced, so stay tuned until the end!
Let's talk about Azure DNS! And a little bit about DNS, going all the way back to 1983 or so.

We also highlight the different pricing tiers for GitHub.
