Julien Corioland, Tech Lead Web & Cloud @InfiniteSquare, MVP ASP.NET / IIS
In the first article I explained what ASP.NET vNext is and how it is possible to create the Azure resources we’ll need via the preview portal. Today, I’m going to explain what Azure DocumentDB is and start the implementation of the data layer of the blog, using this service.
Few years ago I chose to develop my own blog instead of using a well-known blog engine like WordPress or DotNet Blog Engine, for example. Why? Because I use it as a sandbox project to test new Microsoft technologies.
Today this blog is running in a Microsoft Azure Website, using SQL Database and Azure storage and is developed with ASP.NET MVC 5. I’m currently rewriting it with ASP.NET vNext (MVC 6), Azure DocumentDB and Azure Search. In this blog post series I will describe how I use these technologies to put the new version of my blog online
Few days ago Microsoft has announced the availability of the .NET Framework 4.5.2. This new version brings some new features and improvements to ASP.NET. It is now very easy to run some background tasks from an ASP.NET Web app, using the new HostingEnvironment API. It allows to enqueue background tasks (as simple as working with the thread pool) and avoids IIS app pools shutdown until the tracked tasks are completed.
As you maybe heard this week at the day 1 keynote of the //Build 2014, Microsoft has announced that WinJS is now open source and available for web applications and not only Windows / Windows Phone apps !
Yesterday I have been renewed as Microsoft MVP ASP.NET / IIS for one more year !
During the Microsoft Techdays in Paris, I spoke with Simon Ferquel about the newest features that came with ASP.NET MVC 5 and Web API 2. A big part of our session was about OWIN that is (IMO) one of the most exciting feature that has been released.
Few months ago Microsoft announced the release of Visual Studio Online (VSO). One of the new feature that comes with VSO is Application Insights. It allows to monitor the performances of your applications and to find out what your users are doing the most or the less in your app. This kind of information may be very useful to optimize users’ experience in your app or propose new feature, based on behavior analysis.
Few months ago I blogged about how to use ASP.NET Web API to generate a shared access signature to upload a file from Windows Phone to the Windows Azure blob storage. It is also possible to use a Web API to return a shared access key that allows a client to download a blob, directly from the storage.
Few days ago was released a new version of the Windows Azure Media Services .NET SDK, the version 126.96.36.199 that can be downloaded via the NuGet Packages Manager Console (see http://nuget.org/packages/windowsazure.mediaservices). One of the top feature in this release is the ability to create notification endpoints to be notified when a job state change occurs !
Maybe you are familiar with the Windows Azure portal that allows you to manage your hosted services, deployments, storage accounts, service bus namespaces or anything you want to do on your Azure subscription. Actually, all the operations you can perform on this portal are also available in sets of http management REST APIs. All you need to access these operations is a development platform that is able to create and send an http request with a client certificate !
