Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Cloud Zone (Apr. 25 to May 1). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1.The Cloudcast #140 – More DevOps, Less Snowflakes

Brian talks with Michael Ducy (Global Partner Evangelist at Chef, @mfdii) about ChefConf, Chef Development Kit, the evolution from AgileOps to DevOps, Enterprise adoption rates, OpenStack vs. CloudStack vs AWS, and a day in the life of a DevOps team.

2.The Cloudcast #137 - APIs and Sharing Files

Aaron talks with Keith Lindsay (@ShareFile) about API’s and the challenges of content sharing, new ways to think about BYOD, and the evolution and security of applications and data in the Enterprise.

3. Cloud Foundry: Node.js Service Brokers Open-Sourced

We also enjoy using Node.js and taking advantage of the vigorous growth in the community supporting it. With 160+ new modules being added to NPM every day, there is a lot of good code available that's useful for writing REST servers.

4. User Provided Service Instances: Use Them!

There's a feature in Cloud Foundry v2 and Stackato 3 that a lot of people seem to miss. User-Provided Service Instances let you store service connection information and credentials using the same JSON-formatted environment variables that system-provided services create when you bind a service.

5. Exercise 3: Securing a WCF service using Windows Azure Active Directory

In this task, we’ll create a Windows Azure Active Directory tenant. We’ll also add a user, which is specific to this lab. In a real environment, we would set up Active Directory synchronization so that our Azure AD instance relied on the users pushed from the on-premises instance.
