This post describes how you can easily enable debug/verbose information for your Azure Functions for a lightweight and built-in way to extract just a bit more information out of your Azure Function executions. There’s different methods available for Azure and your local development environment. Problem Azure Functions are awesome. But by default, your tools on gathering information without some additional configuration are not that great. The “monitor” view of the function doesn’t give you more than an excerpt of the console. This applies not only…Continue reading How to enable verbose logging for Azure Functions?
SPFx development is a bottomless bag of funsies! This article describes yet another way how to fix the error with your SPFx webpart failing to load a module. In this case, you’ll get an error that starts with the generic “Failed to load component” -part, but contains “There was a network error” later in the stack. I’ve written about this before, but I keep running into new ways to mess up, so I’ll keep documenting the solutions as well! Problem So, this one left me…Continue reading SPFx webpart fails with “Failed to load component – – There was a network error.”

To me, extending Microsoft Teams has pretty much only now become relevant. Before, the palette was still quite unfinished, but now we’re definitely getting to a point where there are meaningful and cost-effective extension scenarios to cover most of the relevant use cases for most organizations. Don’t take this for an inflammatory or disrespectful post – I’m writing this from my personal point…Continue reading Extending Microsoft Teams is now officially awesome
This article describes one way to fix the issue, where uploading and sideloading an SPFx webpart in Microsoft Teams just brickwalls you with a fairly non-descriptive error, and no way to proceed. Luckily, this is usually simple to fix – I’ll describe 2 different solutions I’ve found so far! Problem You’ve got a SPFx webpart, that you’ve packaged as a Teams extension. You can even find it from Teams extensions, but while adding it as a tab, you run into issues. Oh. That’s a bummer.…Continue reading How to resolve “Error initializing application. Error: ***Manifest not found for component id [guid].” when adding an SPFx webpart to Teams?
I’m trying out a new, more long-form content on this blog – tell me what you think about it in the comments section below! This article explains one of the only cryptocurrency initiatives I find to be kind of level-headed – Basic Attention Token – and the browser that’s pretty tightly coupled with it, Brave. Note: If you just want to skip all the banter and download the hecking browser, click this. Preface As far as different cryptocurrencies go, there have been quite a few…Continue reading Enter the BRAVE new world of Chromium forks!
