Infrastructure as Code Using Azure CLI

Todd Horn Architecture, Azure, DevOps, Tutorial Leave a Comment

Infrastructure as Code (or IaC) is the process of using code and versioning in the same way you do your source code to manage your networks, VMS, and Azure resources. IaC generates the same environment every time it is applied, and it’s an important DevOps practice to use alongside continuous delivery.

The release pipeline executes this model to configure target environments. If you need to make any changes, you edit the source, not the target environment. This allows you to create reliable and stable environments on-demand that can be validated, tested, and repeated.

In this blog, we’ll look at how we can use Azure CLI and Azure DevOps Release Pipelines to make this happen. I’ll walk you through all the steps you need to take to get set up.

Flow: A Static Type Checker for JavaScript

Lou Mauget Development Technologies, JavaScript, React Leave a Comment

In this post, we’ll discuss the concept of types, compare static and dynamic types, and show an unobtrusive type inference package provided by Flow.org.

Facebook developed and maintains Flow. The package provides static typing to normally late-bound JavaScript code, including React code. It provides this analysis to a JavaScript application, even if it is an existing application.  Flow operates by carrying out a static abstract syntax tree (AST) analysis of type flows at build time.
