Windows 10 January Tech Preview

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Body:
​I had some fun this morning downloading and playing with the new Tech Preview of Windows 10, which was unveiled last week. Here are a few screenshots to walk you through some of the changes in the interface. All in all, I thought they were fairly minor changes from Windows 8, most of them subtle improvements. (Although I'm going to have a hard time getting used to the new funky folder icons!)The first thing to note is that the "Start Menu" from Windows 8, which was more like an entire browsing experience, has returned to its previous and beloved
position. I personally never had an issue with the Live Tiles and wasn't too upset to see the Start Menu go, but this is at least a nice compromise between the two; it's like having the Windows 8 Start Menu embedded in the Windows 7 and previous start location. The Live Tiles sit side-by-side with the traditional shortcut list.  You aren't really going to see the word "Favorites" anymore it seems, but you'll see "Places" and "Most Used" by default.

Google Cloud Platform Blog: Easily run Dataflow Big Data pipelines anywhere, thanks to Cloudera



We believe the Dataflow programming model,
based on years of experience at Google, can provide maximum developer
productivity and seamless portability. That's why in December we open sourced the Cloud Dataflow SDK



Spark: Thanks to Cloudera, the Spark runner allows the same
Dataflow program to execute on a Spark cluster, whether in the cloud or
on-premises. The runner is part of the Cloudera Labs effort and is available in
this GitHub repo. You can find out more about Dataflow and the Spark runner from Cloudera’s Josh Wills in this blog post....(Read whole news on source site)

Google Cloud Platform Blog: An introduction to containers, Kubernetes, and the trajectory of modern cloud computing



What are containers and how do they work? what are Docker, Kubernetes,
Google Container Engine and Managed VM’s? How do these relate to each
other? How can I build powerful applications with containers and get
them to production scale? How do I extract business value from this
shift? 

Custom Entity Framework Code First Convention for Discriminator Values

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Since version 6, Entity Framework Code First allows the injection of custom conventions. These conventions define rules that will be applied by default to all mapped entities and properties, unless explicitly changed.The conventions API includes a couple of interfaces: IConvention (marker only, should always be included), IConceptualModelConvention (for the conceptual space of the model) and IStoreModelConvention (for the store, or physical, side of the model). Worthy of mention, there is also a convenience class, Convention, that allows access to all mapped types and properties and doesn’t override any

ConcurrentCollections Can Be Prohibitively Expensive

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/akraus1/archive/2015/01/26/161276.aspxSince most of us use multiple threads we get all sorts of race conditions which we can solve with proper locking and concurrent data structures. A simple issue is if you have concurrency on an object which exposes a Dictionary from where you get exceptions back if concurrent writers add the same data to it. You would then either need to coordinate the writers or use a different dictionary which allows concurrent adds. As it turns out ConcurrentDictionary is just the collection you were searching for and your exceptions are gone. You let the tests run.
All green, check in and submit it to the main branch. A long time later at the end of the project until now ignored performance issues tend to get identified and fixed. Someone calls you that your checkin from a long time ago is the root cause of a major performance issue and that you are showing up as mount Everest in the VirtualAlloc reports.   How can that be? The problem with the Concurrent collections which claim to be largely lock free is that to achieve uncontended writes you have to...(Read whole news on source site)
