.NET developers should be familiar with the classic web.config file used for storing web site options, application settings, and connection strings. When you deploy a .NET Web Application to Azure this file can still be used, however a new additional settings layer in Azure is provided.
Recently, I picked up Susan J. Fowler’s book, Production-Ready Microservices. It was a quick read and it provided an excellent outline for implementing standards across a microservice ecosystem in large organizations. I would definitely recommend it for software engineers or site reliability engineers (SRE’s) who work with microservices.
