This week, James is joined by Josh Weber, HockeyApp Program Manager, who talks to us about the next step of DevOps after Continuous Integration, which is Delivery. Gone of the days of emailing around install files and packages as we can eliminate all of this tediousness and delight our testers with Continuous Delivery. Josh shows us not only how we can delivery a development build of Xamarin iOS and Android applications with every commit, but also how Visual Studio Team Services enhances the release management process. He walks us through gated releases to HockeyApp and then straight to Google Play in just a few seconds. Join in on the Continuous Delivery fun on this weeks The Xamarin Show.
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 15:00:00 GMTThe Ops Team is a (sometimes) weekly show where (occasionally) 4 Technical Evangelists specializing in IT Operations get together to give you the deets on their 4 areas of expertise: Microsoft Azure/Cloud, On-premises datacenter technologies, Enterprise Mobility / Windows and DevOps.This week on The Ops Team, WE HAVE 5 PEOPLE. Unbelievable. That also means that it's the longest episode in Ops Team history, clocking in over 40 minutes long. Approaching Lord of the Rings territory there! Matt and Oguz are joined by new recruit Damien (well, new to Redmond), and some visiting Technical Evangelists, Julien and William from the Canadian subsidiary, to bring you up to speed with the latest IT news.In the news, Julien, William and David all give us a recap of some recent OSS conferences; LinuxCon, GitHub Octoverse and Jenkins World 2016 respectively. Matt brings you the latest on-prem info on Nano Server, OMS, Azure Stack, Windows Server 2016 and of Azure Stuff, shares some useful networking guidance, and some enhancements to data encryption in Azure. Oguz shares the latest on VSTS, performance of Bash on Windows, a new alternative Linux subsystem project for Windows, and some other announcements in the Open Source world!Here's all the links and info on the topics we covered, along with the time stamps to jump to specific points in the video.DevOps and OSS with Julien Stroheker[03:08] - LinuxCon North America Info[06:35] - Orchestration Workshop from Docker (DockerCoins)DevOps and OSS with William Buchwalter[10:13] - GitHub OctoverseOn-Prem Stuff with Matt McSpirit[14:27] - Ed's Nano Server Series[16:00] - OMS & System Center Meetup @ Ignite[17:05] - Azure Stack Meetup @ Ignite[17:44] - Microsoft Mechanics on Storage Spaces DirectDevOps and OSS with Damien Caro[19:28] - Jenkins on AzureDevOps and OSS with Oguz Pastirmaci[26:40] - VSTS Remote Agent Cookbook[28:05] - Bash on Windows vs. Native Performance[29:27] - Arch Linux Subsystem on Windows Project[30:48] - Mesosphere DCOS 1.8 Release[31:46] - Tuesday's with Corey - Azure BotAzure Stuff with Matt McSpirit[32:42] - Microsoft Azure for IT Pros Content Series: Virtual Networking[34:07] - Creating a Site-to-Site (S2S) VPN with Azure Resource Manager (ARM) and Windows Server 2012 R2[35:21] - Create an Office 365 dev/test environment in Azure[36:27] - Announcing the General Availability of Storage Service Encryption for Data at RestWhat do you think?

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 13:00:00 GMTToday's project is almost a year old, but it continues in our apparent theme of the month, showing how the Kinect is being used in different ways, in many to make the world a little better place...Kinect interactive display invites charitable supportWe’ve seen Kinect for Windows used in some amazing applications, from educational games to physical therapy to interactive shopping, but none has packed greater emotional appeal than the interactive display that debuted in Bristol, England, this autumn. The result of volunteer efforts by Andrew Spooner and Mike Taulty, both of Microsoft UK, the display uses Kinect for Windows technology to engage passersby and inform them about the needs of people in rural Africa—and, in the process, it encourages them to make a micro-loan to help finance small businesses in developing countries.Spooner, whose wife works for Deki, a UK nonprofit that provides microfinance to entrepreneurs in underdeveloped African countries, came up with the idea. He enlisted his colleague Taulty, and together they created a mockup of an African store that is actually run by one of Deki’s loan recipients. The display was set up in the atrium of the Engine Shed, a hub for tech startups in Bristol, England, where its colorful graphics grab the attention of passersby, inviting them to take a quick quiz about the economic realities in developing countries like Uganda.That’s where Kinect for Windows comes into play. About six feet in front of the display are three large squares on the floor, marked A, X, and B. The user is instructed to stand on the center square (the one marked X). The virtual storekeeper then asks the user to choose answers A or B in response to a series of brief questions pertaining to economic conditions in rural Africa. The user indicates his or her answers by moving to either square A or B, and the ever-watchful Kinect sensor detects the response and provides appropriate feedback. The BBC ran the following report on the interactive display. src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/139907525" width="400" height="220" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>The use of Kinect technology is key to engaging users, all of whom are busy tech entrepreneurs scurrying through the atrium on their way to somewhere else. Few would be likely to stop and spend a few minutes answering questions on a touchscreen display. But a simple game of hopscotch? That can get the attention of even the most harried would-be tech mogul....Project Information URL: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/kinectforwindows/2015/10/16/kinect-interactive-display-invites-charitable-support/Follow @CH9Follow @Coding4FunFollow @KinectWindowsFollow @gduncan411 [...]

If you have a lot of volume and variety of data that you want to investigate and analyze, it is important to have a scalable data lake to store it and a scalable and extensible query language to process it. Microsoft introduces the Azure Data Lake Big Data Platform with U-SQL as its query engine to help you tame your big data monster. In this video, Seth and Michael are giving a demo-heavy preview of Michael's presentations on U-SQL at the Microsoft Data Science Summit. For more information on Azure Data Lake, please see http://aka.ms/azuredatalake.(image)
