Kubernetes Support in Azure Container Services | Azure Friday

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 22:00:00 GMT

In this episode of Azure Friday, Scott Hanselman is joined by Brendan Burns (Partner Architect, at Microsoft & Kubernetes co-founder) to talk about containers and support for Kubernetes orchestration in Azure Container Services. Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

As Brendan wrote in his blog post on, Bringing Kubernetes Support to Azure Container Service, "The integration of Kubernetes into ACS means that with a few clicks in the Azure portal, or by running a single command in the new python-based Azure command line tool, you will be able to create a fully functional Kubernetes cluster that is integrated with the rest of your Azure resources."

It's Time to Update Your VS 2017 Extension Manifest

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 14:00:00 GMT

Carlos Quintero, Mr. Extension and Friend of the Blog, posted a great tip on what Visual Studio Extension creators should do to ensure their extension is truly ready for VS 2017...

It’s time to change the VSIX manifest of your extension to v3 for Visual Studio 2017 compatibility


"I still see, even as today Jan 10, people asking why you get this error when trying to install your extension on Visual Studio 2017 RC:

“The following extensions are not compatible with Visual Studio 15. Installation may cause Visual Studio to be unstable”:


or this other one when you try to upload the extension to the Visual Studio Gallery:

“This extension targets Visual Studio 2017 but was not build with an up-to-date VSSDK. Please make sure to update your references and try uploading again. Note: you’ll also need to add Prerequisites to your extension.vsixmanifest.”:

In both cases, the answer is the same: you have just updated the extension.vsixmanifest of your Visual Studio 2015 extension to add 15.0 (for Visual Studio 2017):


But that is not enough to add compatibility for Visual Studio 2017. Even worse, some people wonder if you can live ignoring those warnings.

The short answer to make an extension compatible with Visual Studio 2017 is the following:

Keynote with Erich Gamma: Microsoft loves Open Source | Technical Summit 2016 - connecting.technologies.

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 13:05:00 GMT

It all began five years ago, as an experiment, whether it is possible to create a development environment in the browser with JavaScript, HTML and CSS. Today it has become an expandable, intelligent editor that runs on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows. Visual Studio Code is largely implemented in JavaScript / TypeScript and uses Node, Electron, and over 100 open source components. Visual Studio Code has also been an open source project since last November. It has a trip with some direction changes behind it. At the same time, Microsoft has also changed constantly. In this session, Erich Gamma describes the most important stages and directional changes of the journey, starting with the experiment up to version 1.0 of Visual Studio Code.

Erich Gamma:

Erich Gamma is a Microsoft Distinguished Engineer. He works with his team in Zurich on Visual Studio Code. Previously he worked for IBM and he was one of the fathers of Eclipse and was leading the Eclipse Java development tools. Erich is also a member of the Gang of Four, which is known for its classical book, "Design Patterns - Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software."
