Azure Advent Calendar 2019 – AKS and Pod Identity

The Azure Advent Calendar is a fantastic idea from Gregor Suttie and Richard Hooper. Everyday, starting on December 1st and going until Christmas, they are posting three new Azure videos on their YouTube channel. They were originally planning to post a single video each day, but the response was so overwhelming they were able to schedule 75 total videos! I guess they shouldn’t be surprised, this is the Microsoft MVP community we are talking about. When I asked for a few guests on my fledgling Day Two Cloud podcast, the response was similarly overwhelming.

My humble entry is being published today, December 3rd, and the topic is running the Pod Identity solution on Azure Kubernetes Service.

The code for the demo can be found on my GitHub in this repository. As I mentioned in the demo, there is a bug in the azure-identity library for Python that is preventing my Flask application from working properly. I’m submitting a bug report, and if it gets fixed I’ll post an update here.

I’m excited about all the great content that will be published in the run up to Christmas. You can see the complete calendar at their website. Thanks again to Gregor and Richard for inviting me to be a part of this event.

Happy viewing and happy holidays!
