Growing with the Web


My name is Daniel Imms, I'm a software engineer from Australia. I live in Washington State and work at Microsoft on Visual Studio Code. I use this site as a platform to learn, revise and teach various software development topics.

When working on an application that interfaces with an Azure Cosmos DB backend you could use an actual Cosmos DB instance to test against but that’s a bit of a hassle as it involves setting up and configuring an actual instance. It turns out there is an emulator that runs in a docker container that you can test against instead.
