Rank #2: Build a CI/CD pipeline for API Management, Part 1
Miao Jiang joins Scott Hanselman to walk through a conceptual framework for building a CI/CD pipeline to automate the deployment of APIs into Azure API Management. Learn about common automation challenges with API Management and how the suggested approach addresses these challenges. For a demonstration, see: Build a CI/CD pipeline for API Management, Part 2.
Rank #3: Multiple node pools in Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
Saurya Das joins Scott Hanselman to show how multiple node pools for Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) enable you to use different virtual machine sizes in a node pool supporting a variety of workloads in a single AKS cluster. For example, an e-commerce website can have a node pool for a billing service and another for a machine learning-based recommendation service, each with GPUs.

Let Azure Search do it all for you.
Rank #5: How to identify web app changes to triage and root cause live site issues
When a live site issue or outage occurs, quickly determining the root cause is critical. Standard monitoring solutions might alert you to a problem. They might even indicate which component is failing. But this alert won't always immediately explain the failure's cause. You know your site worked five minutes ago, and now it's broken. What changed in the last five minutes? This is the question that Application Change Analysis is designed to answer in Azure Monitor.

Rank #9: An introduction to Azure Dedicated Hosts
Ziv Rafalovich joins Donovan Brown to introduce Azure Dedicated Host, which is a service that provides physical servers - able to host one or more virtual machines - dedicated to one Azure subscription.
Dedicated hosts are the same physical servers used in our data centers, provided as a resource. You can provision dedicated hosts within a region, availability zone, and fault domain. Then, you can place VMs directly into your provisioned hosts, in whatever configuration best meets your needs.
