[Post Event] ITCamp Summer Community Event, August 18 - Cluj-Napoca

In August 18, 2016 we had IT Camp Summer Community Event in Cluj-Napoca. There were more than 55 people that attended to this event. In comparison with past events, we dedicated more time for networking between the sessions and at the end of the event. There were two session in the afternnon. The first one was about .NET Security (including .NET Core) and the seccond one was about how we can write actor based concurrency using Elixir. Personally I discover a new word that Elixir has and is available for more than 30 years in Erland world. Seeing a system that has availability with 8 nines (99.99999) is something impressive, but thinking that such a system was availalbe 25 years ago is more impressive. As usualy a big THANK YOU to all attendies and people that were involved behind the scene. And another THANK YOU to our sponsors that made this event possible:
You can find below the abstract to sessions and the slides from each of them. At the end of the post you can find pictures from th…

Azure CDN – Solutions for things that are not available (yet)

Last week I had some interesting discussions around payload delivery and CDNs. I realize how easily people can misunderstand some features or functionality, thinking that it is normal or making the wrong assumption.
In this context, I will write 3 posts about Azure CDNs, focusing on what is available, what we can do and what we cannot do.

Let’s see what we can when we need to do when we need the Azure CDN features that are missing in this moment in time. In the last post we talked about this features, we will not focus on explaining them – for this please see the previous post.

SAS Support for Blob Storage
If you need on top of Azure Store, a CDN system that has support for SAS, then you need to be inventive. The simplest solution is to replicate the content in multiple Azure Storage Accounts or even in the same Storage Account (if the problem i…

I was involved in many discussions when people assumed that different features are available on Azure CDN and were ready to change the current architecture based on that wrong assumptions. Let’s take a look on some features or functionality that we don’t have on Azure CDNs, but many times we are assuming that we have them.

SAS Support for Blob Storage 
The most common functionality that people think that is available on Azure CDN is Shared Access Signature for Blob Storage. Shared Access Signature (SAS) is one …

Azure CDN – Available features and functionalityAzure CDN – Things that are not availableAzure CDN – Solutions for things that are not available Let’s start with the first topic, and talk about features and functionality that is available now (Q3, 2016) on Azure CDNs.  You will find a lot of useful information on Azure page and I’m pretty sure that you already check it.
In comparison with the last few years, there was a big step that was done by Microsoft. They signed partnerships with Akamai and Verizon (both of them are one of the biggest CDNs providers in the world).

This was a smart choice, because developing and construction your own CDNs is not …
