Analytics

One of the great benefits of Azure (and the Cloud in general) is the simplicity with which you can create and scale resources. The downside to this is that you can easily lose track what you’ve got deployed, or accidentally create expensive items and leave them running. We wanted a way to track our spending […]


My first month as an apprentice at endjin

by Ed Freeman

A little over 10 months ago I wrote a blog which reflected on my summer internship at endjin. Now, a little over 10 months later, I’m sitting in the same office one month into my Software Engineer Apprenticeship after having completed my Maths degree and choosing to come and join the team here, for good.

This post explains how to create a PowerBI report which sources data from two separate Azure SQL Databases. PowerBI offers two data access mechanisms; Import and DirectQuery. DirectQuery provides a range of benefits, the chief of which is that data is automatically refreshed. DirectQuery doesn’t import any data into PowerBI, instead it queries the data […]

As Partners for Power BI, endjin is doing more and more interesting things with data and visualisations every week. Recently we were asked to develop some custom visualisations based on work item KPI data from inside Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS), which required us to get to grips with the underlying VSTS REST API.

Automating R Unit Tests With VSTS

by Jess Panni

I recently demonstrated how it was possible to automate the deployment of R models to Azure Machine Learning through VSTS. Of course, this is only part of the story; what about testing? It is important to ensure that all production code is adequately tested, and R is no different. Writing unit tests for R models is straight-forward […]


We’re currently working on a project to migrate a customer from AWS to Azure. As always, we like to put a Continuous Delivery pipeline at the heart of the project to ensure there is zero friction pushing out changes across all dev, test and production environments. Two years ago I wrote about the process we […]
