Chris Anderson (@crandycodes) joins Donovan Brown (@donovanbrown) to discuss Azure Cosmos DB JavaScript SDK 2.0, which adds support for multi-region writes, a new fluent-style object model—making it easier to reference Azure Cosmos DB resources without an explicit URL—and support for promises and other modern JavaScript features. It is also written in TypeScript and supports the latest TypeScript 3.0.

This video from the Microsoft Developer YouTube channel gives a thorough overview of CosmosDB, a globally distributed multi-model database-as-a-service. It provides NoSQL foundation with comprehensive SLAs on throughput, availability, consistency and latency and exposes data through SQL, MongoDB, Cassandra, Table and Gremlin APIs. Learn how to take advantage of it in your apps today and leverage the economy of scale tomorrow!

Fresh off the Connect() 2018 conference, here’s a video summarizing what’s new in CosmosDB for developers.

In case you’re not aware of Cosmos DB, Azure Cosmos DB is a globally distributed, highly-available, multi-model database service. In this video, join us as we demonstrate how to get started with our new SDKs, make the most of database-level throughput, and set up a CI/CD pipeline using the Azure Cosmos DB emulator build task for Azure Pipelines.

In this session from Build 2018, learn how to harness the power of Azure Cosmos DB, a NoSQL document-based database that offers a true “serverless data” experience.

Jeremy Likness shows you how to scale globally with point-and-click geo-replication and guaranteed single-digit latency. You’ll learn how to “choose your own API” and be able to interact with Azure Cosmos DB using the SQL API, MongoDB, Gremlin (graph-based), Table Storage, and Cassandra APIs. You’ll learn how to set up Azure Cosmos DB and build applications with demonstrations in .NET and .NET Core.

Carey MacDonald stops by to chat with Scott Hanselman about Azure Cosmos DB, a managed database service with unlimited horizontal scale, allowing you to scale storage and throughput independently.

In this video, Carey will cover how to partition your data in Azure Cosmos DB, best practices for choosing a partition key, and how to troubleshoot bad partition key choices.
