GitHub has really opened the doors for collaboration across the wider software development community. If you are already using GitHub then it makes sense to make the most of the GitHub ecosystem and use of all of it's available features, including GitHub Actions; a powerful workflow engine that enables developers to automate repetitive tasks.
In this post I'll show you how you can deploy an Azure Function using a GitHub Actions workflows, and by the end of this guide, you'll have a fully working automated deployment pipeline setup.
Please note that this guide assumes that you are already familiar with using Azure Functions and using GitHub for basic source control management.
Let’s face it … security is HARD. Implementing authentication and authorization into applications has always been a challenge and a chore for developers. Building a secure application requires strong knowledge across a number of areas.
Thanks to the power of Microsoft Azure, it now doesn’t have to be like this anymore. Thanks to the power of Easy Auth it’s easier than ever to setup secure authentication for your web application with the click of a few buttons. Yep, I’m not kidding!
When I first starting exploring the world of cloud, it took me a little while to fully understand the different cloud models available …. What does it all mean? What exactly is the different between Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) vs Platform as a Service (PaaS) vs Software as a Service (SaaS)?
In this article we'll take a deeper look at the differences IaaS vs PaaS vs SaaS cloud models – but without all the tech jargon!
We recently migrated a legacy .NET web service running on-premise to an Azure App Service. During testing we identified an issue with DateTime translations. Our application had a reference to DateTime.Now.

In this post I’ll explain how you can update the time zone of your Azure App Service.
