Azure Service Bus is a message-queueing technology. In this introductory blog, you will learn what Azure Service Bus is and when to use it, see examples of how to set up and use it, and find the resources you need to learn more or to try it out yourself.
In this blog, I share an example of a real-world, agile enterprise modernization project that benefited from a User Story Map.
I’m the team lead for a project to convert a business solution from COBOL to a .NET microservices architecture. Other than some interesting challenges with designing a robust microservices solution, the business logic is very straightforward – input files are processed, databases queried, output files are produced and dropped in a folder, and our goal is to match the output produced by the COBOL solution perfectly.

In this article you see how to create a database project that will let you quickly and consistently deploy a database to your local environment. This approach can help to solve some issues from team members interfering with each other’s work on a shared development database.
Then, in an upcoming article, we will show you how to take the next step to include this database project in your continuous integration process and deploy it to each environment up the chain to production so that you can eliminate the need for any direct interaction with database updates.
