  1. Another interesting trick with APPLY operator

    Some years ago, I was reading one book of Itzik Ben-Gan where he explained in depth the use of a new operator: APPLY, I told myself, it just another new feature more. I didn’t understand the relevance and the many versatile applications it had, through time, I have been using APPLY in many scenarios. Saving time and resources it is a fundamental part of each TSQL development, in this short article I would like to explain a simple trick with APPLY operator.The requirement can sound exotic but is...
  2. 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...
  3. Introduction to Google ARCore Development

    In the past couple of years, if not more, the technology of virtual, augmented and, lately, mixed realities have taken a huge leap forward both for consumers as well as enterprise. Initially augmented reality (AR) almost entirely consisted of overlaying data on the real world, triggered by a shape, a logo, a QR code, or something else that could be easily recognised. Most of all it was very similar to a heads up display. Not really interacting with the real world, not really being part of your reality.
  4. Tips for Read/Write Locks Depending on Transaction Isolation Level in MSSQL

    Hi! I wrote these tips after many hours of some ERP system speed optimization. It was very helpful for me and my team. I hope it will be helpful for you too.So, lets go. Read UncommittedRead Committed + read_committed_snapshot off(alter database xxx set read_committed_snapshot off)Read Committed + read_committed_snapshot on(alter database xxx set read_committed_snapshot on)Repeatable ReadSerializableSnapshot(alter database xxx set allow_snapshot_isolation on)Tested on MSSQL 2014.
  5. Extending Tag Helpers in ASP.NET Core

    A few days ago, I was answering questions on Stack Overflow when I came across one that I thought might be relevant to share with others that might have a similar issue. The issue itself revolved around Tag Helpers, and in particular, getting data attributes found on models to properly generate the appropriate attributes when rendered.This post will introduce how to easily extend an existing tag helper for a common use-case. It will primarily focus around the use of the Input Tag Helper, the [MaxLength]...
  6. The Path is Null and Full of Squiggles

    I've been using Visual Studio 2017 since the earliest bits were available and I can confidently say, I'm a fan and highly recommend you give it a shot if you get a chance.With that being said, sometimes new features can cause things to blow up and this post is going to be discussing one of those such features, namely Lightweight Solution Load.Recently, I opened up a decently sized solution (~9 projects) and everything seemed in order. All of my dependencies were there, with no warning signs to be...
  7. Glyphfriend 2.1 Released! Now with Library Filtering

    It hasn't been too long since the latest 2.0 release of Glyphfriend, but with the release of Visual Studio 2017 coming around the corner, there were a few things that could use some improvement and polishing off before then.Message received, loud and clear.All of the changes that were made to make the extension more flexible actually resulted in it being more noisy. Glyphfriend would just serve everything it knew about. This has generally been regarded as a bad move, and thus library filtering is...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
