Microsoft launches 30 days of serverless September to keep you engaged with all the Microsoft Azure has to offer. I didn’t even look at that part of it, but I’m assuming it’s about Azure. *checks*… Yup. I was right. Azure Functions, Azure Container Apps, Azure Logic Apps, Azure Event Grid.

AWS at least has the decency to put the access behind an email address, which leads me to believe this may be a “Let’s see if people respond to us saying we’ll build it” sort of play. 😩
Achieve Google like Autocomplete suggestions with the WinUI autocomplete Control (via @alvinashcraft). Someone at Microsoft, somewhere is going to have to write a Bing version of this and is probably a little miffed that no one ever calls it “Bing like Autocomplete”. There’s a reason for that. 😏
