Visual Studio Code
ToolUp Tuesday is all about showing the thought process and decisions made when creating an application. Join Chris and Matt as they build a new application from the ground up, including development processes, tooling, service choices and architectural decisions!
If there’s an easy way to achieve something, then I’m all for it! You may have noticed that I’ve been putting a lot of effort into refactoring my site and open sourcing the original Cloud With Chris theme. I’ve now released that as the Hugo Creator theme for Hugo. As part of the refactoring process into a reusable theme, I had to make several breaking changes. This meant that I’d need to update the contents of my site. I want to share a quick tip that I discovered to add captions to my images in markdown.
We often hear about Kubernetes, App Services, VMs and more. What about static sites? The Static Content Hosting pattern can be cost-effective, and when combined with a CDN can be incredibly performant! We will get hands-on, showing how these resources come together into a Cloud Architecture.
Cloud Lunch and Learn Marathon 2021 - How GitHub Actions can help in building and deploying a static site and more
Chris is the producer and host of his podcast CloudWithChris.com. He uses GitHub to version control the site’s source code, GitHub Actions to build and deploy the site to Azure and other clouds, and GitHub Issues/Boards to plan the episode backlog. In this session, we’ll explore how GitHub can be used to deploy your own workloads to Azure.
#LeedsAzure - vMeetup #9 - How GitHub Actions can help in building and deploying a static site and more
Chris is a Senior FastTrack for Azure engineer at Microsoft and is the producer and host of his podcast CloudWithChris.com. He uses GitHub to version control the site’s source code, GitHub Actions to build and deploy the site to Azure and other clouds, and GitHub Issues/Boards to plan the episode backlog. In this session, we’ll explore how GitHub can be used to deploy your own Podcast/Blog site using Static Site Generators such as Hugo onto Azure.
This marks 3 months of the weekly vlogging! Chris talks about last week’s very busy week (New content/talks every single day!). A new Cloud Drop episode on GitHub Codespaces, Part 4 of using GPG Keys to sign your Git Commits & GitHub, Welsh #Azure User Group and Using #Terraform #Cloud with Azure. As well as a series of #Azure Blogs, #Azure Updates, #DevOps Blog Updates and #GitHub Updates.
Have you ever had to setup a development environment from scratch? You have to install a ton of dependencies, probably a few tools along the way as well. It’s not fun, it takes a lot of time and it prevents you from being productive. This is where GitHub Codespaces comes in.
In this video, Chris lays out his second weekly technology vlog update talking about updates on Cloud With Chris (Weekly Vlogs, Blogs, Podcast Series episodes, Sessionize), Azure Updates, Community Updates (John Lunn aka JonnyChipz, Sarah Lean aka TechieLass, CloudFamily.info and Richard Hooper aka PixelRobots).
Imagine the scenario. You’re a developer and you need to go and build some code. You need to install a number of dependencies, a code editor and perhaps a number of frameworks, only to find the code still doesn’t compile on your machine. Probably because you’re missing some frameworks or libraries. We’ve all been there. But perhaps, we don’t have to be there. Stick around in this episode as we talk about Visual Studio Code, The Remote Containers Extension and GitHub Codespaces and how all of these can help solve that challenge.
