In this episode, Dmitry is joined by Jeremy Likness, who shows us CosmosDB. This is the Azure database-as-a-service that features geo-replication, user configurable consistency levels, and supports a variety of interfaces from the classic DocumentDB to MongoDB and more.
Jeremy demonstrates how to set up a CosmosDB account, load data, and stand up an application with web API interfaces and a single page application front end to quickly access data leveraging C# and LINQ. He then shows how simple it was to write data using an Azure Function, then mine the data using Power BI. See how CosmosDB truly provides the "easy-button" for database-as-as-service for .NET developers!
