  • Azure Container Apps - CI/CD deployments (Video Demo)
    3 projects | | 11 Jan 2022
    Azure Container Apps is a container orchestration platform for deploying modern applications and microservices. With Azure Container Apps you can deploy your containerized apps without the need to take on the overhead of managing the infrastructure of the underlying systems. This service is still in preview, but provides you with the ability to use your preferred language or framework to build microservices with support for Distributed Application Runtime (Dapr). There's also scaling of your containers with Kubernetes Event-Driven Autoscaling (KEDA).
  • What is the new equivalent of microsoft message queue
    1 project | | 3 Jan 2022
    If you are looking for a unified way to build this across different clouds, you could look into DAPR
  • Is developing microservices in .net is heavily dependent on Azure?
    2 projects | | 31 Dec 2021
    Take a look at DAPR if you are looking for a conceptual Queues, Storage, Pub Sub etc without being tied to any particular infrastructure.
  • Azure Service Bus
    1 project | | 2 Dec 2021
    This sounds like something you can do with Dapr ( It's a microservice architecture that was developed by Microsoft i think and now open-source. It has build in support for communication between services. I don't know your architecture/landscape or the requirements, but maybe this could work for you. If not, yeah queues could work. Setup a listener on startup for the specific queue and you should be good. Keep scaling in mind, I think there was a limit to the number of listeners is possible on a queue (1 per partition or something)

    Dapr is a set of APIs that makes it easy for developers to write distributed applications. Dapr runs as a sidecar process next to an application, whether on Kubernetes or any other environment.
  • gRPC Development experience in modern .NET
    7 projects | | 12 Nov 2021
    Think i agree that the tooling is a little behind for .net and gRPC but it isn't bad. Are you also cutting the monolith into smaller pieces you might want to look at
  • Next.js 12
    27 projects | | 26 Oct 2021
    I guess could also be considered a contender in that space, though the developer experience is not as polished as next.js (yet?).
  • Show HN: Scaffoldly – Serverless APIs on AWS, in Minutes
    1 project | | 21 Oct 2021
    Very cool project. It reminds me a bit of (even though they're obviously quite different).

    One tiny note on the docs - I found it surprisingly hard to find the github repo for the project listed in the docs. I was expecting to find a GitHub link under contributing but only saw a slack channel. I eventually spotted a link in the Roadmap section.

  • Do you guys use frameworks with Go for backend development?

  • From Monolith to Microservices and Beyond
    5 projects | | 5 Oct 2021
    Projects like Dapr aim to be the Holy Grail for application development. Their goal is to help developers build resilient services that run in the cloud. By codifying best practices for building microservices into independent and agnostic building blocks that can be used only if necessary, they allow services to be built using any language or framework and run anywhere.

What are some alternatives?
