יום חמישי, נובמבר 1, 2012

uild is starting to pick up and today was actually packed with Windows Azure actions. The keynote had a couple of cool announcements and a couple of extremely cool hidden jams. The keynote was led by Satya Nadella. The first thing that caught my eye was a slid showing strategic Windows Azure based operations. One logo belonged to my good friends PlayMyTone and it's a good opportunity to congratulate Ohad and the gang for the great job they have been doing.                   Satya Nadella (Photography by Bnaya Eshet) The next couple of cool staff that ware kind of hidden in Scott Hansellman's demo: EF 6 Alpha bitsNew Windows...

Troubleshooting Windows Azure diagnostics using the Diagnostic Infrastructure Logs

יום ראשון, אוגוסט 5, 2012

One of my favorite jams of windows azure is the use of the diagnostics.wadwcg file for setting up windows azure diagnostics. This is a great alternative for configuring the The Windows Azure diagnostics infrastructure in code. Last week I had an issue working on a customer deployment where I just could not get trace logs using the diagnostics.wadcfg configuration. I was getting the Windows Event Logs that was also configured just fine, but for some reason the trace logs would just not come through. Setting the diagnostics.wadcfg (just like setting the configuration in code) basically...

Apache Hadoop has a variety of APIs for developing MapReduce applications: you can use the streaming API to create MapReduce applications with almost any programming language, Hadoop pipes adds native support for C++ applications and Hadoop on Azure provides it’s IsotopeJS library for creating JavaScript MapReduce jobs. You can also use a variety of higher-level abstractions and libraries such as Pig and Hive. With that said and done, it is also useful to know how to develop MapReduce applications using Hadoop’s most natural and primal Java API. This API allows you to develop richer, more powerful MapReduce apps and...
