Nice Time Saver: Windows Universal App Image Scaler

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Recently I took my first steps into the world of Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps after many years of WPF. What came a bit as a shock to me was the sheer number of required/recommended tile and icon assets.Most of the images are versions of the same image, scaled to different sizes. Of course, creating these images is something that can and should be automated, starting from a sufficiently large image.One way to handle this is via Photoshop Actions, but when looking for a simpler solution I came across the Windows Universal App Image
Scaler. This is a Visual Studio extension that adds a context menu entry to the Solution Explorer. You simply right-click an image file, choose “Scale image for Windows Universal app…” and specify the kind of images you want to create. When you press “Ok”, the output will be written to the directory that contains the source image, and that’s it!You find this nice extensionin the “Extensions and Updates” dialog inside Visual Studio (via the “Tools” menu) by clicking “Online”, “Visual Studio Gallery” and searching for “app image scaler”,on the Visual Studio Gallery website: on GitHub:

SELECT One by Two – Interview Question Extended – Part II

The puzzles are interesting and in most cases, if we try to play around a little bit more, many more interesting extensions can be added. A couple of weeks back, I wrote a round – SELECT One by Two – Why Does SELECT 1/2 Returns 0 – Interview Question of the Week #067. It brought some good interactions as comments over the blog and I was happy we were all excited about something as simple as this. The post SELECT One by Two – Interview Question Extended – Part II appeared first on Journey to SQL Authority

Digital Transformation Defined

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This post is a walkthrough multiple definitions of digital transformation from multiple sources. Digital transformation can be elusive if you can’t define it. Lucky for us, there is no shortage of definitions for digital transformation. I find that rather than use one single definition for digital transformation, it’s actually more helpful to look at a range of definitions...

As a software developer, technical skills are a must – they are absolutely necessary, but they are also not sufficient. The reality of what we do is far more than just logic and processing and making computers do things. If technical skills are required, but not enough, then what else is there? What’s the secret […]

RavenDB 3.5 whirl wind tour: A large cluster goes into a bar and order N^2 drinks

Imagine that you have a two nodes cluster, setup as master-master replication, and then you write a document to one of them. The node you wrote the document to now contacts the 2nd node to let it knows about the new document. The data is replicated, and everything is happy in this world. But now let us imagine it with three nodes. We write to node 1, which will then replicate to nodes 2 and 3. But node 2 is also configured to replicate to node 3, and given that we have a new document in, it will do just
that. Node 3 will detect that it already have this document and turn that into a no-op. But at the same time that node 3 is getting the document from node 2, it is also sending the document it got from node 1 to node 2. This work, and it evens out eventually, because replicating a document that was already replicated is safe to do. And on high load systems, replication is batched, so you typically don't see a problem until you get to bigger cluster sizes. Let us take the following six way cluster. In this graph, we...(Read whole news on source site)
