  1. CI/CD Pipelines: Importing and Exporting TeamCity projects across different versions

    If you develop applications and are involved with build management and pipelines then you will have heard about TeamCity, a CI / CD solution from JetBrains.Working with my current client we encountered an issue whereby we couldn't import an exported project because I was getting the below error:The selected backup file version (829) does not match the current version of the TeamCity database (856). Only backup files created with a TeamCity server of the same version as the current server are supported.
  2. Windows Server 2016 New Core Licensing Model ¿How to digest it?

    It's well know that Microsoft launched to the market the new version of Windows Server 2016 and with it, a "new" licensing model based on the physical cores. It's been more than a year since this and still, there is a lot of confusion about how to eat it? how to license? what types of SKUs? Is there any rule? and so on. This article purpose is to clarify some aspect of this change, how to manage it but more important: Understand it.Let's start in the beginning: WHY? Traditionally, Windows Server...
  3. Keras: The Python Deep Learning library with Tensorflow and CNTK

    Hey, This is my first article, I hope you find informative.  Currently, I get interested in the AI & Machine Learning. And start learning by experimenting as well. I usually use Tensorflow and CNTK in Parallel. So, First I give a little Introduction to both like What they are and What they do?Tensorflow is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. Nodes in the graph represent mathematical operations, while the graph edges represent the multidimensional...
  4. Database migrations with Continuous Delivery in Entity Framework

    Who doesn't enjoy the big term, DevOps? It sounds promising and sounds interesting as well when someone says, they work as a DevOps engineer! But like they say, Similarly, in the case of DevOps, every process, which DevOps exposes has to be handled with a great care or the results are catastrophic. In this post, I am going to talk about the swissknife of continuous delivery, in the terms of database migrations and maintenance. It has been quite a while, since I have joined DevOps practices and...

When writing bots, all developers face the same issues. It paramount that the bots have the basic I/O; it is a requirement for them to have language and dialog skills; it is crucial for them to be performant, receptive, and scalable. Moreover, they must connect to the users. The...
  6. Contributing to .NET for Dummies

    Over the past few months in the little spare time that I have, I’ve managed to submit a handful of pull requests to various .NET-related repositories (e.g. coreclr, corefx, docs, etc.) and incredibly, they were accepted.Now, for some, this may not seem like a big deal. But it felt like a pretty big one to me so I thought I would take some time to elaborate on the process itself, share my experience, and hopefully dispel a few myths or misconceptions that you might have that may be holding you back...
  7. Using the HoloToolkit for HoloLens

    Developing applications and experiences for HoloLens is not hard to get started with, but after you have started a number of projects and worked through the same setup and plumbing a few times, you wish there was an easier way to do it. Well, there is! Created by the team that produced Fragments and Young Conker, the HoloToolkit is a collection of scripts and components intended to accelerate the development of holographic applications targeting Windows Holographic. The toolkit is all free...
  8. Making HoloLens Accessible to Developers

    Interest in HoloLens, the mixed reality device from Microsoft, and digital reality in general, is growing rapidly. A large part of that interest comes from developers wanting to know how to build software for the device. And guess what: It isn't that difficult at all. With some basic C# knowledge and a free copy of Unity 3D you can get started in very little time. The first step is to get comfortable with the five main pillars of mixed reality development. First of all there are the three key...
  9. Enabling Nested Virtualization Feature in Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10

    Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10, are bringing a new Hyper-V feature which is very welcome for those who love and need, do clustering tests, like me, and does not have access to a physical infrastructure (servers, storages, etc.) that makes it possible. Why nested virtualization, which is the new Hyper-V feature, can help a lot!Being straight forward, nested virtualization is run a VM with Hyper-V host, inside a VM with Hyper-V host. You got confused? Come on, I'm going to show you!First, you can...
  10. DevOps, NoOps and No Future

    In the wake of the recent MongoDB happy hour debacle, there have been a few mentions of DevOps and NoOps. The pieces were mostly about the fact that this incident proved that the IT business is not really in full DevOps mode, not to mention NoOps. I am not confident that NoOps will be the future for a vast majority of shops. Being from the Ops side of things, I am obviously biased toward anyone stating that NoOps is the future. Because that would mean no job left for me and my comrades in arms....
