fernapp is an open source tool that can run a GUI application on a Linux server that can be accessed via web browser.
In this brief demo, I’ll setup fernapp on an Azure-hosted Linux virtual machine and export a Linux-based GUI over a TCP endpoint so it can be consumed remotely on a browser.
Continuing our “how to” series of demos, I’m sharing another example of how you can deploy a full range of open and community-driven OS and software solutions on Microsoft Azure.
In the below video, I’ll use connected Linux virtual machines and Microsoft Azure load balanced sets to show you how you can clusterize services like OpenLDAP and MySQL. I’ll also show how to use readily available open source tools like DRBD, Corosync and Pacemaker to create a shared-nothing highly available architecture and Azure CLI as a STONITH resource.
Microsoft Azure’s Node.js Developer Center provides support for deploying Microsoft Azure Websites, Virtual Machines, and Mobile Services, configuring git-based deployments, and using Service Bus and Storage.
In this video, I’ll use Azure's open source SDK for Node.js, the REST interface of Azure Service Bus, and Node.js and Web Sockets support on Azure Websites to illustrate how to capture data from sensors connected to a Pinguino board. All on a Raspberry Pi running Linux.
This demo was part of my presentation at LinuxFest Northwest 2014. Slides are available here and sample code on GitHub here.
Microsoft Azure helps developers build their mobile applications with Mobile Services – a scalable and secure backend that can be used to power apps on any platform – iOS, Android, Windows or Mac.
In this video, I’ll show Java developers how to jumpstart their Android applications by creating Mobile Services, downloading prebuilt packages for several platforms and removing the need to create and maintain a backend that enables CRUD operations. In this example, I’ll work with a prebuilt package for ADT/Eclipse and add functionality to it.
