Running Scheduled Data Collection with Synology and Docker

February 11, 2021

I've used my Synology NAS for some time now - about two years and counting, and it's been a great tool to backup information locally (e.g. from my phones or shared computers).

Azure Container Instances, Azure Functions & VSTS Builds

Today, we are once again talking about builds, and pushing for more automation in your software creation process.

Installed Docker. Installed Azure CLI. Pretty much all of the code and descriptions described below can be followed on macOS, Windows or Linux, as most of them will be done within the web interface, through your favorite web browser.
