Preview Azure Portal Easter special

Today I’ve tried the Azure portal preview. The experience is different from the normal portal, but I see why Microsoft wants us to use it. Information is displayed on blades and not hidden on tabs.

I’ve created a wordpress site. Below is a combined screenshot of the steps to create it.

💡 To keep the blog free of charge go into the pricing tier and select the F1 Free option for the Web App (if not visible click view all) and Mercury for the MySQL Database.

After the site is created, wordpress will be deployed to it. Browse to the site and complete the setup with two simple steps. WordPress is up and running.

For the fun of it I added an Easter Egg plugin. Browse to erictummers.azurewebsites.net and type the Konami secret code (up,up,down,down,left,right,left,right,b,a).
I’ve taken the site down but the screenshot below shows the Easter egg(s).

About erictummers

My work as a recruited developer changes almost every month. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
