Recently , I was discussing something related to the topic on how to motivate the developers . Although , the discussion was not a serious one but the discussion had quite a few interesting points and here’s I list out few points which we were able to discuss . Motivating a Development Team Better Configuration for their Computers – Most of the developers would like to work on a super speed system with good amount of RAM and also multiple monitors (if possible). Great Tools to work – The development environment might have a big impact on the way the

I lost 40lbs using these two amazing simple steps–you can too!

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
TL;DR – I got off my butt, started eating better and lost 40lbs in ~100 days.  You can too. This year started very depressing personally as each look in the mirror showed another chin growing under the previous.  I weighed the most I’ve ever weighed in my life and it just kept getting away from me.  My move to Redmond brought back a different office life for me from my previous role at Microsoft and I became much more sedentary than before.  Now, this doesn’t mean I was a triathlete before, but I certainly didn’t sit in an office
as much as I have in the past 4 years.  I really put myself fully into work and nothing else…and it showed physically. As my kids got more active (I have two kids; 8 and 12) I participated more with their activities.  I realized how out of shape I was when I couldn’t ride a bike like my kids, couldn’t run around the baseball field to help with Little League practices without being out-of-breath, etc.  I had to do something.  The problem is I’ve ‘tried’ before a few times.  I haven’t really dedicated myself but tried dumb diets and...(Read whole news on source site)

The SharePoint Team is listening - make your voice heard

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
There’s a lot of stuff happening right now at Microsoft, they innovate, create great software and services, the new CEO accepts and wins almost all challenges and the SharePoint and Office team is listening! This is the Microsoft that I like and this is how I want Microsoft to continue to be. But Microsoft and the SharePoint team can’t just listen in blind – they listens to us out here in the real world, customers, clients etc. and we need to make our voice heard. This can be done in several ways, we can talk to our
Microsoft representatives, we can whine on our blogs and on social networks OR we could make ourselves heard at UserVoice. Microsoft and different divisions and groups within Microsoft has started to use UserVoice pretty extensively lately. UserVoice is a great service where you can set up your own channel, listen for feedback and questions, and answer them and most importantly act upon them. Just recently the SharePoint team had a blog post called “UserVoice driving improvements to SharePoint API” which shows just this. From the feedback they received on UserVoice and with direct and indirect customer contact...(Read whole news on source site)

Perceived strengths and weaknesses of Docker

Perceived strengths and weaknesses of Docker



the idea of delivering an entire system as a deliverable



Docker as a "native interface" that developers code against vs. an implementation for a platform (how it's used in Openshift, Cloud Foundry and, indeed, how dotCloud used Docker's predecessor when it was still a PaaS provider)?



anyone looking at Docker with an interest in having something to compare with might want to look at Apache Mesos, which is the lightweight container system that powers Twitter. Omega, the container system that Google
actually uses for its own stuff, is described in a research paper....(Read whole news on source site)
