In this episode, we are going to wrap up the Store UI in our RPG project. We will focus on populating the data that we've setup with scriptable objects, using various techniques that we have gone over in previous episodes. We'll also tackle some common problems such as clearing out the data from the UI, locking player movement and adding an OnClick event to a button to close the UI.

DevOps is about people, process and products. Getting it all right requires effort but the benefits to your organization and customers can be huge. Microsoft has a fantastic set of products that can adapt to any language on any platform. In this demo-heavy keynote, Donovan Brown will show you how to go from "zero to DevOps" like a pro. Starting from just a blank desktop, he will create a new team project and a complete pipeline. He will also deploy an ASP.NET MVC application into Azure all live and hands on.(image)
Thu, 30 Mar 2017 13:00:00 GMTLast week we highlighted a "Hello World" post for the HoloLens, Hello Holographic 3D World, but what if you don't have a HoloLens handy?John's got a great post on how you can build HoloLens Unity apps without a HoloLens, using the Emulator...How to build and run a HoloLens app in Unity using the Emulator"Here’s how to set up a development environment to write HoloLens apps, even if you don’t have a HoloLens. You will need a PC running the latest Windows 10, a game controller and a copy of Unity. The free Personal edition of Unity, will work fine.It won’t do any harm to have Visual Studio installed too as it makes a good C# editor (along other things). You can also use Visual Studio Code for editing.Install the latest version of Unity. IMPORTANT: During installing, make sure to select Windows Store .NET Scripting Backend. If you omit this, (you will know you have if you find various menu options discussed later are missing) you will not be able to build UWP apps, and that means HoloLens apps. If you discover that you did forget to install it, you can re-launch the Unity Download Assistant (it will be in your Downloads folder) and check the box.Create a new 3D project.Add something to the scene to look at – a Cube for example. When you’ve done this, click File / Save Scene to save this view....Ensure the Window / Holographic Emulation window is open, select a room, and click Play again. You should be able to walk around the virtual room using the game controller. The room data will update at a similar rate to a real HoloLens, so there will be a tiny delay before the room appears...."Project Information URL: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/johnkenn/2016/12/07/how-to-build-and-run-a-unity-hololens-app-using-the-emulator/Contact Information:Blog: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/johnkennFollow OneDevMinuteFollow @CH9Follow @Coding4FunFollow @gduncan411 [...]

I don't know about you, but I use WinDbg only once in a couple blue moons and can never remember how.
So when I saw this, a tool written for a guy just like me AND that it's open source, I knew I had to share it with you...
Dump and analyze .Net applications memory ( a gui for WinDbg and ClrMd )
Please, read the wiki to know everything about MemoScope. Lot of pictures, animated gifs and some text for every major features.
What it MemoScope.Net ?
It's a tool to analyze .Net process memory: it can dump an application's memory in a file and read it later. The dump file contains all data (objects) and threads (state, stack, call stack)
MemoScope.Net will analyze the data and help you to find memory leaks and deadlocks
Out of Memory
I know, with 64 bits apps it should not be an issue but it may still happen if your application :
- is using too much memory (peak)
- runs for days and has a "slow" memory leak
If your application is locked and you want to know where and why: dump the memory, display the threads status and blocking objects to see what thread is holding one that is waited by another thread.
Hard to reproduce bug
Sometimes, users can do weird things with your application and you can't make it happen on your computer so ask the user to dump its application's memory to analyze it on your machine.
