About a month ago, @nikitonsky posted a joke about GitHub redesign on Twitter. I thought the joke is too good to remain merely a joke. So let’s celebrate Microsoft’s acquisition of GitHub with a full-featured Windows theme.
This article briefly describes the most important basics of the library Manufaktura.Controls which I recently released as Open Source project. The project is a continuation of two other projects which I created eight years ago and which are described in the following articles:
Update (2018): Updated for VS2017, sample also includes a satellite library to show how this method can be extended to manage a more complex setup.
This article is second in series for learning Dart language, the new kid in the block. Dart Team are upgrading language almost at same pace of Dot Net Core. With Flutter making its main language for app development, I believe it would be in main stream soon.
As a one-stop service for log data, Log Service (Log for short) experiences massive big data scenarios of several hybrid cloud services provider. Log Service allows you to quickly complete the collection, consumption, shipping, query, and analysis of log data without the need for development, which improves the Operation & Maintenance (O&M) efficiency and the operational efficiency and builds the processing capabilities to handle massive logs in the DT (data technology) era.
DevOps, DevOps, DevOps. I personally think DevOps is a requirement in most of the projects, involving software development. Yet, very little amount of people truly understand what DevOps has to offer, or what DevOps itself is. As to what DevOps is, I would leave that part to a future post however in this post I will try to give you an overview of what DevOps has to offer and how you can kickstart your DevOps chains on Microsoft Azure. In this post, we will cover a couple of platform-level services offered by Microsoft and the Azure platform and see how we can build a complete toolchain—or better, how Microsoft Azure can help us build the DevOps pipeline on the services. Our services would include, but won’t be limited to,
I would be wrong in saying DART is new emerging phenomena in today’s ever-changing programming world, as promised in this article, I would be letting you know more about DART language. For this article, I am taking liberty copying some common text from DART official website, as those information, that are constant like type of keywords or Build-in types. To make this article compliant with rules, I will make sure proper attributions are given.
The MySQL and MS SQL are the two of the most widely used database systems in the world. The first thing that you will note about these two database systems is how they are availed to users. MySQL is open source software. This means that the use of MySQL comes from the pooled knowledge of different people from different corners of the world. This can be arguably be the biggest plus for MySQL as users through the open source platform can continually improve the general program. MS SQL on the other hand uses a closed source development approach. By this, the development of the program is done in-house and all that the consumers get is a program that they are supposed to use.
As a software engineer, I was always interested in how a computer can be taught to behave intelligently, at least on some simple tasks that we can easily solve within frames of seconds. One of them applies to audio recognition, which in recent years has been analyzed thoroughly. For this reason, in this article, you will be introduced to one of the complex tasks which arose in the field of computer science: the efficient comparison and recognition of analog signals in digital format. As an example, consider an audio signal Ψ1, which you would like to compare to another Ψ2 in order to see if they both are coming from the same song or audio object. Any person could cope with this assignment with no problem at all, but computers unfortunately are not that intuitively “smart”. The difficulty lies in the fact that each of the signals might have distinct digitized formats, thus making their binary signatures totally opposite (resulting in an obsolete byte-by-byte comparison). The dissimilarity may also result because of the combination of variant internal characteristics of the same audio format (bit rate, sampling rate, number of channels (mono, stereo, etc.)). Even if you proceed with the conversion of the files to some predefined specifications (e.g., 44100 Hz, stereo, WAVE PCM format), you still might bump into the problem of having different binary representations because of the possible time misalignment, noise, distortion, or “loudness levels” for the same song (“loudness” technically defined as amplitude level).
I have a homebuilt desktop with an ASUS P6T motherboard. It’s about 7-8 years old, but still quite powerful and functions beautifully. ASUS originally provided PC Probe II to monitor temperatures and fan speeds, but stopped supporting it for the P6T when Windows 10 came out. And since then, I’ve been operating without a satisfactory sensor app. Unfortunately, the 3rd party sensor apps available are a bit quirky, or non-intuitive, or can’t be configured the way I’d like. Then again, perhaps I’m just overly picky.
Task Manager shows you the programs, processes, and services that are currently running on your computer. You can use Task Manager to monitor your computer’s performance or to close a program that is not responding.
This article explains how to create fully functional .DLL and .LIB modules for Windows using pure assembly language. While much of the discussion for the article is centered on working off of Visual Studio, the .DLL and .LIB modules you create can be integrated into any language that allows their use. What’s generated are standard .DLLs, with nothing to distinguish the final product from .DLL modules created any other way.

As you already know, Microsoft has dropped the development of HyperTerminal starting with Windows 7. IntelliPort is a program that you can use to connect to other computers, using either your null modem cable or Ethernet connection. IntelliPort records the messages passed to and from the computer on the other end of your connection. Therefore, it can serve as a valuable troubleshooting tool when setting up and using your modem. To make sure that your modem is connected properly or to view your modem’s settings, you can send commands through IntelliPort and check the results. IntelliPort has scroll functionality that allows you to look at received text that has scrolled off the screen. You can use IntelliPort to transfer large files from a computer onto your portable computer using a serial port rather than going through the process of setting up your portable computer on a network. IntelliPort is designed to be an easy-to-use tool and is not meant to replace other full-feature tools available on the market. You can use IntelliPort to perform the specific tasks described above, but do not attempt to use IntelliPort for more complex communication needs.
DevOps is a combination of software development and operation (Dev & Ops) which strongly advocate automation at all steps in software development process. This will enable faster delivery, more stable operating environment with minimum human errors, less maintain cost and many more advantages for software development team.
Within few weeks, I am writing third article in DART2 Prima Plus series, As mentioned earlier Its new kid in block, with feature addition and releases almost every week. I believe they taking scrum methodology by heart.
In this article, we will learn how we can create end to end tests (e2e) for our Angular application. We will be using an existing end-to-end testing framework, which is nothing but, Protractor. Protractor runs your tests against your application running in a real browser, in the same way your user may perform the actions. I will be using an existing application which is available in my GitHub profile. The same can be available in the source code section. Please do share your feedback with me. I hope you will like this article. Let’s start coding.
