What I worked on this week 5/1/2021

This is my weekly status post. This is just as a reminder of what was fascinating to work on over the past week. Expect some vagueness, because I want this to be 10 minutes or less.

Services on the chopping block is our theme this week. Last thing on Friday, I got to deprecate our old inventory management system. We moved to the company-wide one with massive funding and got it off our plate. This will allow me to focus on other areas, including PHP and Godbolt.

Migrations: I spent some more time on the service migrating in this week. Moving resources between Azure subscriptions has posed some interesting challenges. The biggest one has been that dashboards that lit up before stopped working. Thankfully, I can export and import dashboards. I was able to export them, change the subscription that the resource they were pointing to was in, and then import them back in, and VOILA! No other changes necessary.

AKS Cluster configuration: I was able to finish setting up an AKS Windows cluster with a data disk that synchronizes to an Azure File Sync service. The scripts (with one exception) are idempotent, and that’s something I always try to aspire to. The one instance is that a command id I call in fails on multiple retries, so I need to see what that looks like as I dig deeper into it.

Have a great weekend!
