About Fusion restaurants: it's pretty rare for them to do everything (or even most things) at a master chef level.
I've never worked with CosmosDB, so I don't speak from experience...

I'm with David Poole on this. Deployments should be small and often. Don't like the result? Do another "forward" deployment, never backward. If deployments are automated and fairly easy, there's...

Thanks Steve for pointing out this fun website! I did several of the problems in C#, which is not a language I use in my day job. I probably enjoy...

I can think of reasons why this data might be useful if sufficiently anonymized. For example, COVID-19 was detected in an area. Were there a lot of people passing through...
