Most websites today retrieve data by calling (REST) APIs. This also means that when Frontend developers are tasked to create new features, they most likely are dependent on those APIs during their work. This is fine and doesn’t have to be a problem, but if the APIs are slow or unstable, it certainly will not boost development.
In this article I’m going to discuss how to take APIs out of the equation with mocking. Not just mocking, but mocking the easy way using a new Chrome extension called “OhMyMock”. …
YAML pipelines are the new way to build CI/CD pipelines in Azure DevOps. Although they don’t have that nice GUI which the classical pipelines have, this is totally compensated by the fact that these YAML pipelines are part of your source code and can be shared easily.
In this post, I will be using YAML pipelines to demonstrate how AppService slots can be created dynamically based on branch names and how to cleanup slots for branches that are merged back to master.
The first step is to create the slot, but to be able to do that, we need to…

Anyway, this post will not be about me playing chess but it is about how I developed a chess bot which did what I can never do.
