In episode 2 of the MVP Show we join MVP, Dominick Baier, in his hometown of Heidelberg, Germany. He has been a tremendous contributor to the technical community and an MVP for 10+ years, focusing on Visual Studio and development technologies. Together we discuss some of his passions, including identity and access control protocols. In this video we also have fun exploring the local highlights from a native point of view. We hope watching this is as fun for you, as we had making it. Any questions or comments? Please don't hesitate to drop us a line below! Who knows, maybe you will be invited to an upcoming video shoot with Seth next!

In this bonus footage from Episode 2 of the MVP Show, Dominick Baier walks us through two typical modern authentication scenarios. One is "machine to machine" communication and one is web-based user authentication with delegated API access. Both scenarios are achieved using the "token service" abstraction, where all authentication logic and access token issuance is encapsulated in a service.

Today's project from Daniel Cazzulino is one that I thought kind of neat and different.
If you're a Visual Studio user, you've been to the Visual Studio Gallery. You might have also wondered at one point how to create your own Gallery. But then you considered you'd have to spin up a VM somewhere, have to maintain it, etc.
What if you could create a "Serverless" Gallery? Say using the new cool that is Azure Functions?
That's exactly what Daniel's done and he shared the entire process and code with us!
There are a few online services that offer custom VS galleries, but given that it’s just a plain Atom feed with some storage for the payloads, I figured it made for an excellent use case for Azure Functions.
The online Azure Functions code “editor” is extremely basic, more a textbox than an editor at the moment :).
This package makes it trivial to create a custom Visual Studio gallery feed using plain Azure Blob Storage to persist the feed as well as automatically update it from VSIX payloads pushed to the same storage container.
The service requires two functions: one for updating the feed blob, and another for returning the feed to the users.
Feed Updating Function...
Feed Retrieving Function...
With that, you can now head over to the MSDN documentation on how to add a private Gallery to Visual Studio and try it out!
