I've been a huge fan of WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) since it first came to Windows 10. In fact it's fair to say it has completely transformed how I do local development, run tools and my whole workflow. Naturally I was very interested in the news from Build announcing a new version of WSL, which seems to go by the rather functional (if descriptive) name “WSL2”
Recently I've been exploring the cost optimizations that are possible in Cosmos DB, and tripped over some interesting gotchas and side behaviors that I thought were blog worthy. This is mostly a ‘stream of consciousness’ of the various problems I bounced off, but I'm sure I'm not the only that will to go through such a journey
I've been working on this one for a long time, but I think it's finally ready for the world. Kubernetes is a huge topic and I wanted to condense down my learnings over the past 12 months, into some digestible & re-usable form, so I created another of my tech primers.
I currently help maintain a site called Azure Citadel, which is host to lots of techie articles, guides, labs and things related to Azure. Azure Citadel is in part is a big reason why this blog has been dead for 12 months, as the majority of my technical writing ended up there rather than as blog posts. Sorry!
