While I have spoken at many events in the USA while I lived there, and even did a few keynotes for the Visual Studio 2012 launch, I have been trying to figure out the scene here in Europe. As such I submitted to a few events and got accepted to speak at NDC London. My [...] The post NDC London: Second Look, Team Foundation Server & VSO appeared first on naked ALM - Experts in ALM, TFS & lean-agile with Scrum.

Originally posted on: celebrate the Strata and Hadoop world, O’Reilly are offering 50% off a number of E-books and Videos at Anonymizing Health Data “Updated as of August 2014, this practical book will demonstrate proven methods for anonymizing health data to help your organization share meaningful datasets, without exposing patient identity. Leading experts Khaled El Emam and Luk Arbuckle walk you through a risk-based methodology, using case studies from their efforts to de-identify hundreds of datasets.  Clinical data is valuable for research and other types of analytics, but making it anonymous
without compromising data quality is tricky. This book demonstrates techniques for handling different data types, based on the authors’ experiences with a maternal-child registry, inpatient discharge abstracts, health insurance claims, electronic medical record databases, and the World Trade Center disaster registry, among others.” Using Flume “How can you get your data from frontend servers to Hadoop in near real time? With this complete reference guide, you’ll learn Flume’s rich set of features for collecting, aggregating, and writing large amounts of streaming data to the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), Apache HBase, SolrCloud, Elastic Search,...(Read whole news on source site)

ReSharper 9 now available under Early Access Program

Originally posted on: are making version 9 of ReSharper available under the Early Access Program at The initial version should in my opinion only be installed on a virtual instance as it will de-install not only a previous version of ReSharper but other JetBrains tools as well. There are however many new features such as support for Visual Studio 14 and C# 6.  These new features may be vital additions for some users and I therefore suggest that you read the blog entry at

Docker and Microsoft: Integrating Docker with Windows Server and Microsoft Azure

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I’m excited to announce today that Microsoft is partnering with Docker, Inc to enable great container-based development experiences on Linux, Windows Server and Microsoft Azure. Docker is an open platform that enables developers and administrators to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of Docker Engine, a lightweight runtime and packaging tool, and Docker Hub, a cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows, Docker enables apps to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments. Earlier this year, Microsoft released support for Docker containers with Linux on Azure.  This
support integrates with the Azure VM agent extensibility model and Azure command-line tools, and makes it easy to deploy the latest and greatest Docker Engine in Azure VMs and then deploy Docker based images within them.   Docker Support for Windows Server + Docker Hub integration with Microsoft Azure Today, I’m excited to announce that we are working with Docker, Inc to extend our support for Docker much further.  Specifically, I’m excited to announce that: 1) Microsoft and Docker are integrating the open-source Docker Engine with the next release of Windows Server.  This release of Windows Server will include...(Read whole news on source site)

#1,180 – By Default, FrameworkElement Doesn’t Have Desired Size

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
If you create a custom control that derives from FrameworkElement, the control won’t by default have any particular desired size.  You can see this by setting alignment properties on a simple custom control without also setting explicit Width and Height. You can see in the designer that the first instance of MyFrameworkElement is not visible, because it has no size. A […]

Release preps, and my mobile cluster

I just took this picture on my desk. This is a set of machines running a whole set of tests for RavenDB 3.0. On the bottom right, you can see one of our new toys (more below). This new toy is a NUC (i5, 16 GB, 180 GB SSD). We have a couple of those (and will likely purchase more). They have a very small form factor, and they are pretty cool machines. We got a few of them so we can have easier time testing distributed systems that are really distributed. It also has a very
nice effect of actually being able to carry around a full cluster and “deploy” it in a few minutes....(Read whole news on source site)
