From endjin folks there is Adventures in Dapr: Episode 4 - Containerising with Visual Studio - this has got a lot of useful information about containerisation, and in part 5 of Bye bye Azure Functions, Hello Azure Container Apps: Migration of the existing test environment there's a really great demonstrating of using Polyglot Notebooks as a runbook for managing the migrations; we're using this approach more and more for initial deployments and migrations. And finally, Ian Griffiths and Ed Freeman at are VS Live! in Orlando this week, giving a talk about Cosmos DB: Performance and Consistency at Global Scale and a workshop on Modern Data DevOps in the Azure Cloud.
