Here in Brooklyn, NY the weather continues to trend colder but there’s always a little heat coming from our DevOps community. It always makes me happy to see how dedicated everyone is to producing great content to help others get the most from their DevOps solutions.

Speaking of dedicated people, I wanted to ask you to consider voting for our friend Abel Wang who lost his battle with cancer this past July. Abel has been posthumously nominated for a “Top DevOps Award” as part of the DevOps Dozen 2021 awards. Abel’s impact on the Microsoft and greater DevOps community is difficult to summarize. He was a friend, mentor, and a wonderful person to all. You can vote for him by going to this survey.

Now that we’ve got through our opening business, let’s take a look at this week’s posts from the Microsoft DevOps community. This week has a strong showing with new posts on Azure Data Factory, Azure DevOps, Bicep, and Azure Static Web Apps.
