Ubuntu for Azure Developers

Author Dave Glover, Microsoft Australia
Platform Ubuntu 18.04 for Azure Developers, Kubuntu 18.04 for Azure Developers, Ubuntu 16.04 for Azure Developers
Date As at May 2018

Developing on Linux for Azure is a great experience and there is superb open source tooling support from Microsoft (and others) for Azure across Windows, Mac and Linux.

I've tended to stick with the LTS releases of Ubuntu Linux, better support, examples, documentation etc. With the release of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS I decided it was time to upgrade from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS system.

See Installing Ubuntu 18.04 on a DELL XPS 15 Model 9570 (2018).

The following documents the applications, command line tools and SDKs that I have installed for my Azure centric Ubuntu developer desktop. Enjoy:)

  1. Ubuntu 18.04 for Azure Developers
  2. Kubuntu 18.04 for Azure Developers
  3. Ubuntu 16.04 for Azure Developers

Feel free to contribute to these guides.
