What's New in Azure Spring Cloud after GA?

This post was written by our friend on the Azure Spring Cloud team, the amazing Kylie Liang (@liangkylie). I interviewed her for the Bootiful Podcast in April 2019, too! -Josh

2020 was a busy year for Azure Spring Cloud service. Microsoft and VMware co-announced Azure Spring Cloud General Availability (GA). We were excited to see how Azure Spring Cloud helped customers focus on code and let us take care of the underlying infrastructure management, operation, and maintenance. We continue to prioritize our work according to customers’ requests and feedback. For example, 7 more regions were enabled, and Azure Spring Cloud service is now available in 18 regions of Asia Pacific, Australia, Canada, China, Europe, India, Korea, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States. In this blog, I’ll share more about the newest features and enhancements since GA.

YMNNALFT: Websockets

Welcome to another installment of You May Not Need Another Library For That (YMNNALFT)! I’ve spent a lot of time since 2016 illuminating (or trying to, anyway!) some of the more enormous opportunities in the Spring ecosystem in my Spring Tips videos. Today, however, I come to you in a different spirit, wanting to focus on the little, sometimes hidden, gems that do fantastic things and that might spare you an additional third-party dependency and its implied complexity.

The open web has long extended hope to those who wanted a commodity platform to build and deploy services and applications at a large scale. We knew that the web could be compelling once a few things were improved. People could deliver rich clients that would be upgradeable with the refresh of a browser page. They could deliver data-and-multimedia-centric, immersive experiences. We knew that people could do these things if they only had the right paradigm for building web sites and services. But they say that you can’t appreciate the sweet without the sour, so the community embarked on a mission to find the absolute worst approach to building websites and services, and that, kids, is the story of how we got PHP.

YMNNALFT: Dimensional Metrics Accumulation with Micrometer

Welcome to another installment of You May Not Need Another Library For That (YMNNALFT)! I’ve spent a lot of time since 2016 illuminating (or trying to, anyway!) some of the more enormous opportunities in the Spring ecosystem in my Spring Tips videos. Today, however, I come to you in a different spirit, wanting to focus on the little, sometimes hidden, gems that do fantastic things and that might spare you an additional third-party dependency and its implied complexity.

It’s 3 AM. Do you know where your production KPI Metrics are? You can’t improve that you can’t measure, and metrics are an important part of this. Without metrics, we’re utterly and hopelessly lost, trapped in a spiraling death-march project with no sign or hope of any improvement! Tremble, ye wretched and miserable developer! Without metrics, we’re blind, and there’s nothing funny about that, so instead, here’s a photo of my daughter’s adorable little guinea pig, Kai:
