Building a monitoring solution for Power Platform events using PowerShell, C#, Azure Log Analytics, and Azure Sentinel

I’m writing this from the beautiful and sunny city of Prague, where I’m attending the European SharePoint, Office 365 and Azure Conference. It’s a 4-day event, with hundreds of sessions, and some very insightful keynotes also. I’m delivering two sessions here, and one of those was on monitoring and managing Power Apps and Power Automate. As you probably know, Power Automate used to be called Microsoft Flow. They are both parts of the Power Platform,… Read More »Building a monitoring solution for Power Platform events using PowerShell, C#, Azure Log Analytics, and Azure Sentinel

Generating random numbers from a lava lamp using .NET Core

I used to have a lava lamp when I was young. I mean, I’m still relatively young, but I haven’t had a lava lamp in decades anymore. I think it was a fad of the 1990s, and when everyone realized the lamps actually broke rather easily, the hype died quickly. Our family also had a bread machine around the same time. We don’t have that either, anymore. When I read about Cloudflare’s random number generator… Read More »Generating random numbers from a lava lamp using .NET Core

Building a custom Twitter Analytics tool using .NET Core, Azure Storage, and Power BI

This week has been very productive for me. I’ve been running and thinking, and in the mornings I’ve written about my thoughts. Today is no different! I’ve been a Twitter user for 10 years now – I joined in May 2009. At first, I was a passive user, but in recent years I’ve given it more effort and I’ve found Twitter quite useful and valuable for myself. One thing that’s kept me awake all these… Read More »Building a custom Twitter Analytics tool using .NET Core, Azure Storage, and Power BI

Building my own RSS feed generator using .NET Core and the new System.Text.Json assembly

It’s that time again! And by this I mean I was thinking of grabbing a cup of coffee, splashing out a few lines of code and have something useful come out. The way I seem to make learning easier for me is to build something. Many times when I’m in the middle of debugging some code, I realize the solution I’m about to build has probably been done a thousand times already, by more experienced… Read More »Building my own RSS feed generator using .NET Core and the new System.Text.Json assembly

Building a command-line utility using .NET Core and C# to track my car

I’m still partially on vacation mode, as school and other obligations won’t resume until next week. The fun part about the Finnish summer holidays is that the whole country essentially shuts down and hibernates for 6 weeks. This provides a nice way to think about other stuff than work, as customers and colleagues are mostly offline or unreachable until mid-August. I’d been thinking of checking out how I could get data from my car. I… Read More »Building a command-line utility using .NET Core and C# to track my car
