Einstein says, "Newton, you're terrible, I've found you!" Newton says, "No no, no. You've found one Newton per square meter. You've found Pascal!"

A couple of Azure Functions, a WCF SOAP service and a ASP.NET Core app hosted in App Services, Azure SQL Database, Application Insights, ServiceBus, Storage Account, Key Vault...

Then I deployed them all using my Azure DevOps pipelines.
I got a couple of errors, which are now fixed and the development environment is up and running again.
Overall, this wasn't so bad
