I created a page with a simple guide on how to add a virtual machine to Microsoft Azure. This, however, is not instruction on doing this from within the Azure Portal. The VM is added by using the cloud shell.
Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 is looking very sharp! The tools cover almost anything or any area of development you can imagine. For starters, per below, you can see the latest edition goes way beyond the standard IDE, and it crosses into all major platforms, goes into Azure DevOps [for teams ]and the App Center, and in their own words, you can:
“Develop apps for Android, iOS, Mac, Windows, web, and cloud.”
I wrote a quick overview on a new Azure Cloud Shell set up. This shell allows for command line access to Azure from within a web browser. Although the web-based Azure Portal is preferred for Azure work, due to its ease of use, there are times when CLI is needed. It is a very useful feature or tool. Read the Overview here.
“Microsoft Azure available from new cloud regions in Switzerland” – business is booming for Microsoft Azure.
In Switzerland, where we’ve been operating for 30 years, Azure is now available from new cloud datacenter regions located near Zurich and Geneva. More than 30 customer and partner organizations are already using these Azure services. Companies becoming more efficient, innovative, and productive through their usage of Azure in Switzerland include:
UBS Group, the world’s largest wealth manager, is using Microsoft Azure cloud technology to modernize many critical business applications, to leverage digital channels, and to rethink how its global workforce collaborates.
The Swiss Re Group, one of the world’s leading providers of reinsurance, insurance, and other forms of insurance-based risk transfer, has chosen us as a strategic partner and preferred public cloud provider. Through their use of technology and our partnership, Swiss Re strives to make insurance simpler and more accessible than ever.
Swisscom, the national telecommunications provider, is now offering its customers managed public cloud services delivered via our global infrastructure and new Swiss cloud regions. Swisscom will be the first Swiss telecommunications provider to offer ExpressRoute, a secure, highly available, high-performance, and private connection to Azure services.”
Not really an Apple person per se, but the new iPhone 11 certainly looks fantastic. It is a sleek, metallic design, no doubt about that. Supposedly the processor [A13 Bionic] is faster and the overall battery life will see an increase.
But the camera / video capabilities seem to be elevated to a new level. I am particularly interested in the seemingly advanced video editing. I think this will lure in more people than we might think, even considering the high price points. Time will tell!
