(This post is in portuguese and english)Well, the MVP Showcase 2015
event is over! After all the excitement, it’s nice to calm down, but I am already missing all these extraordinarily gifted people and all the technical hype! I couldn’t attend all the sessions that I wanted, because there were always two in parallel, but I must say that I was very impressed with the overall quality of the presentations! Well done, guys!For those who might be interested, here are the slides for my presentation, “Entity Framework 7: NoORM
” (in english). As always, I’d love to
hear your feedback!Once again, thanks to all our sponsors
, and to all attended the event!
Bem, o MVP Showcase 2015
acabou! Depois de toda a excitação, é bom ter um bocado de sossego, mas já estou a sentir saudades de toda aquela gente tão extraordinariamente dotada e de toda a envolvente técnica! Não pude assistir a todas as sessões que gostaria, porque havia sempre duas em simultâneo, mas devo dizer que fiquei muito impressionado com a qualidade geral das apresentações! Bom trabalho, pessoal!Para aqueles que possam estar interessados, aqui estão os slides da minha apresentação, “

Monsters are an exciting thing to see in a movie. They are not so thrilling in your application architecture. I recently came up with (or at least I think I came up with) a term for architectures that are put together with mismatching parts and in ways the software gods never intended: Frankenstein Architectures. A co-worker then evolved that to Frankentechture. Of course the designer of a framework or an application platform can’t envision every possible use of their creation. How do you know then
when you are just using it in a new and inventive way and when you are creating a Frankenstein monster? Read the documentation of the author’s intent, see where it performs best and where the maintenance story is the best and then don’t stray far from those boundaries. Another thing to think about is if you are using patterns just because you read them in a book and it sounded good? Are you adding them to the application just because you saw them at the latest conference? Are you spending days and weeks finding ways to get around the...(Read whole news on source site)
A couple weeks ago we headed off to PyCon 2015
. If you missed PyCon, there is another opportunity to come see us. PyData Seattle
is hosted at Microsoft’s Redmond campus in July 24-26. The call for proposals and early-bird registration are still open, so if you’re a data scientist using Python or simply interested in learning about it, we’d love to see you there.
Now, we are back from Montreal and all caught up on sleep; but, before we get back to work (now fully inspired!), we thought we’d share our experience at theconference.
We launched a new series
Recently Microsoft showed us something new to the world which I think is very interesting: Azure
This new offering makes it a snap to create, deploy, manage your applications and
APIs and integrate third party APIs as well.
First of all the two parts that stayed the same but got a rebranding:
== Web Sites
== Mobile Services
Two newcomers in the arena are
to automate access and use of data
to easily build and consume
I got renewed as an MVP for ASP.NET. I’ve been renewed every year since 2007 when
I first got the award.
I’ll keep doing my best for the community for the next year(s) to come as well. Being
an MVP is all about community work and interaction and I really love that community.
Thanks to that I got to know a lot of interesting people, became a better developer
and person. It’s been an awesome ride so far.
This is the last of our second four part series on building cross-platform apps using Xamarin and C#. In this episode
I am joined by James Montemagno
, a developer evangelist at Xamarin
, who discusses Xamarin Insights
, a new monitoring solution for all mobile applications. We get an indepth look at how to integrate Xamarin Insights into your iOS, Android, and Windows applications to get real time crash reporting of native and managed crashes. Then, we see how to monitor custom events and data and tie directly into popular services such
Microsoft has removed the 'preview' tag from its free Outlook for Android app, which is now available in the Google Play Store.
Microsoft has released to testers its third public preview of Windows 10 Mobile for Windows Phones.
I’m always on the hunt for people that do what makes them come alive. Artists in particular are especially interesting for me, especially when they are able to do what they love. I’ve known too many artists that lived painful lives, trying to be an artist, but never making ends meet. I’ve also known too many artists that lived another life outside of art, but never really lived, because they never answered their calling. I believe that in today’s world, there are a lot more options for you to live life on you terms. With
technology at our fingertips, it’s easier to connect with people around the world and share your art, whatever that may be. On Sources of Insight, I’ve asked artist Rebecca Tsien to share her story: Why I Draw People and Animals
It’s more than a story of a digital artist. It’s a journey of fulfillment. Rebecca has found a way to do what she loves. She lives and breathes her passion. Maybe her story can inspire you. Maybe there’s a way you can do more art.
