Microsoft is making a cloud service that uses artificial intelligence to track down bugs in software generally available, and it will begin offering a preview version of the tool for Linux users as well.
Microsoft Security Risk Detection, previously known as Project Springfield, is a cloud-based tool that developers can use to look for bugs and other security vulnerabilities in the software they are preparing to release or use. The tool is designed to catch the vulnerabilities before the software goes out the door, saving companies the heartache of having to patch a bug, deal with crashes or respond to an attack after it has been released.
One for the gamers out there… or the nostalgic…
First Look !
This week a first look at the new design from the Ataribox project.
You can sign up to get updates at www.ataribox.com …
You can grab the latest Visual Studio 2017 update now (version 15.2) and view the release notes at https://www.visualstudio.com/en-gb/news/releasenotes/vs2017-relnotes#15.1.26430.16 which was released on 17th July 2017.
New update for Azure SQL Data Warehouse…
Reduce troubleshooting time with the upgraded Resource Health check for SQL Data Warehouse.
This upgrade considers the health status of all components of the SQL Data Warehouse architecture, which includes each SQL database distribution and the SQL Data Warehouse engine on each compute node. Login and heartbeat signals of each component are emitted at least once every 2 minutes, providing you a low-latency, holistic view of the health status of your data warehouse. If your instance is Unavailable, we will provide the reason along with recommended actions that you should perform.
The Resource Health check can detect unavailability reasons, such as when your instance is pausing, scaling, or upgrading. This feature also detects when there are any connection issues, whether they are user connections or inner SQL database connections.
You check the health of SQL Data Warehouse by signing in to the Azure portal and clicking the Resource Health blade.

Azure Cosmos DB is a globally distributed system that supports the document, graph, and key-value data models which Microsoft have classified as a multi-model database service for mission-critical systems.
It also supports both the API for MongoDB and the DocumentDB API for creating, querying, and managing resources.
If you would like to understand how to answer any of the following questions: –
- How do the standard HTTP methods work with Azure Cosmos DB resources?
- How do I create a new resource using POST?
- How do I register a stored procedure using POST?
- How does Azure Cosmos DB support concurrency control?
- What are the connectivity options for HTTPS and TCP?
Interaction model using the standard HTTP methods
Then take a look at Azure Cosmos DB REST API for full details first published on 18th July 2017 which covers these topics.
If interested in performing CRUD operations using REST, see Common tasks using the Azure Cosmos DB REST API.
If interested in performing CRUD operations using C# and REST, see the REST from .NET Sample on GitHub which can help you out.
If interested in more details of the MongoDB API, then see Introduction to Azure Cosmos DB: API for MongoDB which covers the benefits of using Azure Cosmos DB for MongoDB applications.
