Decode Base64 with Azure Synapse Analytics its Serverless SQL
I wanted to analyze some data in Azure Synapse Analytics, Serverless SQL. This data was coming in from my IoT Hub that I created and was being routed towards an Azure Data Lake Storage account as small JSON files. However when trying to analyze this data, it appeared that IoT Hub shows the body as Base64 encoded and T-SQL couldn't analyze it.
Creating a Dapr Project with Node.JS and the Dapr-JS SDK
Dapr is simply amazing, allowing you to interact with libraries that otherwise take a couple of hours to implement or even days depending, on your level of comfort with them. Next to that, when you would utilize libraries, you also need to take care of correct authentication, error handling, and more.
Running Dapr on Azure IoT Edge
I've been working on a large-scale project that has some interesting requirements performance wise. While having around 6+ modules, I should get a performance of around 10ms roundtrip! One container does AI inferencing within ~2ms.
Azure Project Bonsai - Physical CartPole Project
In my previous post I revisited the Bonsai platform. Now it's time to actually start preparing to put it into production! (this will become more clearer over time 😉) To start off with a spoiler: Project Bonsai - It's impressive! 😎
The Azure Project Bonsai Platform Revisited
It has been almost an entire year ago since I have visited the Bonsai platform that I covered in my previous post. Since then a lot changed on the platform, so the time has come to revisit it and see in more detail what exactly changed (on the surface of course)!
Schedule Kubernetes CronJob to restart pods automatically
For a project I needed a way to automatically schedule pods to be deleted every 3 hours. This was due to the nature of the project where we wanted a cleanup in memory due to zombie processes appearing. It's not a clean fix, but it was necessary for production to run stable while we were patching things.
