DocumentDB is the latest storage option available on Azure. During the last weeks I had the opportunity to play with it and give some presentations about it. This article will introduce you to this new service.
Last month was an amazing month for all who love Microsoft Azure. The release of DocumentDB, some updates to HDInsight and the preview of Microsoft Azure Machine Learning are just a few of these great moments. Some of the announcements can be found in today’s Links of the month, enriched with some articles related to ASP.NET and a very interesting GitHub project.
July is gone for nearly two weeks, but I don’t want to miss to share my favorite links of the month. Today I just have a few links, but believe me … they are great. Most of them are about ASP.NET, such as how you can return raw JSON content from ASP.NET Web API or how you can use integer keys instead of strings in ASP.NET Identity, but I also have two very interesting articles for Visual Studio/TFS for you. One of them talks about my favorite set of technologies (of course Azure) in combination with a great tool I just have played around last week (Visual Studio Release Management).
– Announcing the Release of ASP.NET MVC 5.2, Web API 2.2 and Web Pages 3.2
– ASP.NET Identity 2.0 Extending Identity Models and Using Integer Keys Instead of Strings
– JSON and Microsoft technologies
– Token Based Authentication using ASP.NET Web API 2, Owin, and Identity
– Returning raw JSON content from ASP.NET Web API
– Dependency Injection in ASP.NET vNext
– Composing API responses for maximum reuse with ASP.NET Web API
June is already gone and it is time for another bunch of links which I found interesting. They range from (a lot of) ASP.NET articles over TypeScript to some interesting GitHub projects. Also last month the soccer world cup has started. Correspending to this event I added some PowerBI links which explains some collected data related to it.
May has passed and it is time for my favorite articles of the month. Today I have a lot of stuff related to ASP.NET and its future version. I decided to include valuable AngularJS in future posts, so from now on you will also find some articles covering this topic.

Another month has past and after Build we had a lot to do (or still have to). The problem is that Microsoft (and especially the Azure team) is still delivering new stuff. Today I have some interesting readings from April. It ranges from ASP.NET Identity over Application Insights to the announcement of TypeScript 1.0 … and of course the newest releases on Microsoft Azure.
