Week 6 SDN Cast News on Windows Developer Day and more

SDNCast 39

This week was the week of the Windows Developer Day – Creators Update, an online event by Microsoft where they shared that he upcoming version of Windows also called the Creators Update is now feature complete. So also the SDK for this Windows version became available for download. And that was not all, there was more. Open sourcing of about twenty UWP controls developed by Telerik are now available for free.

Project Rome, to control applications on other devices, will now get an Android version soon. Bugs and Features are now in the open and published through a special site providing you with some insights on what is about to come, but also how bugs are progressing. Top UserVoice items will also arrive in the list so you can check for yourself to see how this is evolving.

We looked at migrating .json projects to .csproj. Fanie created a Proof of Concept to transform a .json configuration file into a .csproj equivalent and shows us how to get started in a demo.

Also we added some more interviews (Dutch) that we recorded at the by our friends from dotNed organized dotNedSaturday and also created a dedicated playlist for the dotNedSaturday videos. We are not completely finished yet with editing the interviews so there will be some more the upcoming week. The ones we posted so far can be watched here:

Week 3 SDN Cast news with Brady Gaster from Microsoft

SDNCast 36

SDN Cast 36 is, to break a pattern, completely hosted in English. Not for no reason, but because we asked Brady Gaster to join us this week on our web cast. And, as we learned from our parents excluding someone from the discussion is ill-mannered by talking in a different language without translation we did not want to do the show half Dutch, half English and went for the English all the way option.

Already said it, we had a special guest this week, Brady Gaster in a live connection with Microsoft Campus in Redmond. Brady is working on some great tooling such as Downr, Azure Tools for Visual Studio Code, also DMC – docs.Microsoft.com is part of he daily playground, so we asked him to tell us all about it and even better to join us at one of our upcoming SDN Events.

Obviously we started with some news and events but the interesting part of this show is the part where Brady explained in a waterfall of information what they built (and deployed). We collected all the links from his presentation and added them to the list of links below.

Take some time to look at his presentation and see where you can use it in your daily job to be more productive, and think of it as a teaser or introduction of what you will see at our upcoming SDN Events later on this year!

Where can you find the 36th edition of our SDN Cast?

Software News and Events for Week 36 – Windows Wedding Day?

SDN Cast

A day early, today we recorded our Dutch SDN Cast live from our own home locations. Last week we recorded our SDN Cast on location at venue Hotel Oud London in Zeist to introduce our quarterly SDN Event. As usual we discussed the news and events for this week and tried to hook into the Apple Event while we were casting our show.

Just before going live I updated my broadcasting PC to Microsoft Anniversary and due to having a Dutch system I was redirected to an information page explaining I was eligible to install “Microsoft Wedding day” and my machine was ready to install “Microsoft Birthday” edition. An example of how machine translations messed up … The upside is that it was fun to read providing a good laugh. I won’t laugh too loud though as I probably make similar mistakes translating Dutch to English resulting in Denglisch J. Obviously it is not easy to translate Anniversary into the Dutch equivalent.

For my Dutch readers, here is the info provided:

Microsoft Trouwdag

Apple Event

This week we have tough competition with our SDN Cast. At the same time of our Cast there was the Apple Event announcing a new Apple Watch, the iPhone 7, wireless earbuds. Every now and then we picked up some pricing or news items from the Apple show. We are not forgetting that a large part of Software Development is targeting Apple devices so it has our attention!

Demo context:

This week in our Dutch webcast two demos, the HoloLens Teaser and a Docker Intro. We asked Roy Janssen to give us a quick intro of what we can expect in his sessions at the SDN Event next week September 2nd and we also did a Docker Demo as a follow up of one of our earlier SDN Casts where we discussed the Docker Conference a couple of weeks ago.

HoloLens

This week a HoloLens Teaser to warm us up for next week’s event we organized: SDN Event op 2 september. Roy is showing us what you can do with the HoloLens and is showing what Augmented Reality is all about. Next week in the SDN Event session he will deep dive into the HoloLens in a special session giving an overview of the options you have to develop for the HoloLens by showing use of the tools and applications available. His company can be found at his website http://semper-IT.nl.

Docker

A couple of weeks ago we discussed the Docker Conference in our Events section. As promised back then, this week we finally demoed in our 16th Dutch SDN Cast Docker for Windows to show you how quick and easy it is to set up a running Docker environment on your Windows machine and use some of the images available on http://hub.docker.com.

We hope you like watching our Dutch SDN Casts to catch up in about an hour on the topics that are hot for this week and hear the latest news and see the great demo’s on technology and software development that you can apply in your real world scenarios.

Don’t forget to subscribe to our channel as with enough subscribers we get the option to create an easier to remember link instead of the complex URL we are forced in today for our channel!

Showtime: Paranormal Activity, The Marked Ones

Paranormal Activity The Marked Ones


The “Showtime” section on my blog is a reminder, mostly for my own reference but maybe helpful for other film enthusiasts as well, to remember what movies I’ve seen lately, what it was about and how I rated it in general.


Paranormal Activity, The Marked Ones is not part of the other Paranormal Activity series (Paranormal Activity 1,2,3,4 and 5 on its way to arrive this year) although it does include some hidden footage from Paranormal Activity 3 but is a so called spinoff.

The story is about high school graduate Jesse and he is experiencing weird things after his neighbor was found dead. He is curious to see what happened there and investigates the abandoned home of his neighbor. Not long after that he appears to be marked for possession and affecting the people around him.

The movie feels a bit low budget (the actual budget was $5,000,000 so what is low) and to me was not that thrilling. As with the other Paranormal Activity movies this one was also captured as if it was recorded using a home video camera (as seen in the The Blair Witch Project) and gives you a messy interpretation of what is happening. Overall not the best horror movie available and I wouldn’t recommend spending your money on going to the cinemas. Instead wait for the TV, DVD or VOD and watch it at home with a bag of chips and get on with your life. Four out of Ten I’d say …
