Use Application Insights to diagnose performance and errors in your web apps. Azure App Service is a great place to get started hosting and maintaining your web apps. You don’t have to enable App Insights upfront; the option is always there to be turned on when and as needed without re-deployment.
Provider pattern was introduced in ASP.NET 2.0 and it gives the developers the flexibility of where to store the state of ASP.NET features (e.g. Session State, Membership, Output Cache etc.). In ASP.NET 4.6.2, we added async support for Session State Provider and Output Cache Provider.

If you’re developing applications that target Azure services (e.g. Web Apps, Functions, Storage), you’ll want to know about two powerful tools that come with Visual Studio 2017 and the Azure development workload: * Cloud Explorer is a tool window inside Visual Studio that lets you browse your Azure resources and perform specific tasks – like stop and start app service,
One of the most frustrating experiences is when you have your app working on your local machine, but when you publish it it’s inexplicably failing. Fortunately, Visual Studio provides handy features for working with apps running in Azure. In this blog I’ll show you how to leverage the capabilities of Cloud Explorer to diagnose issues in Azure.
When creating an Azure App Service .NET Core is already pre-installed. However, only the 32 bit .NET runtime is installed. In this post we will look at a few ways that you can get a 64 bit runtime on Azure App Service

So, it’s the Holidays. The office is empty, the boss is away, and you’ve got a bit of free time on your hands. How about learning a new skill and having some fun?
Azure Functions are a serverless technology that executes code based on various triggers (i.e.
We all want our web applications to load as fast as possible to give the best possible experience to the users. One of the steps to achieve that is to make sure the images we use are as optimized as possible.
