Organizing your cloud assets starts with good names. It is best to be consistent and use:

  • All lower case – Use kebab case (“-“ as a separator)
  • Include which environment the resource is intended for i.e. dev, test, prod, etc.
  • Do not include the Resource Type in the name (Azure displays this)
  • If applicable, include the intended use of the resource in the name e.g. an app service may have a suffix api

Azure defines some best practices for naming and tagging your resource.

Having inconsistent resource names across projects creates all sorts of pain:

  • Developers will struggle to find a project’s resources and identify what those resources are being used for
  • Developers won’t know what to call new resources they need to create.
  • You run the risk of creating duplicate resources created because a developer has no idea that another developer created the same thing 6 months ago, under a different name, in a different Resource Group!

Event Storming with William Liebenberg

Do you know the value of Event Storming?

Often when building systems it isn’t super clear what all the nuts and bolts should be. There might be several major stakeholders or domain experts each with slightly different ideas understanding that causes contention in how the system functions.

Build Multi-Platform Applications for Mobile, Desktop and Web in .NET with the Uno Platform with Nick Randolph

The ability to deploy the same UI codebase across all platforms is a great productivity booster. But the application lifecycle starts much earlier – at design time. Uno Platform provides a Figma plugin, which eliminates the timely designer-developer handoff. In addition, the platform now provides a set of non-UI extensions to help jump-start your apps. Lastly, the VS Code extensions allows C# and XAML to use VS Code with IntelliSense-like experience, C# and XAML Hot Reload, and more.
