Microsoft has fleshed out more details about C# Version 8.0, the next planned major release of the language. C# 8.0 is expected to arrive in 2019, concurrent with the arrival of .Net Core 3.0. Developers can try out language features in betas of the Visual Studio 2019 IDE.

Microsoft said that while most language features in C# 8.0 will run on any version of .Net, there are some that have platform dependencies. Async streams, indexes, and ranges rely on framework types that will be part of .Net Standard 2.1. While .Net Core 3.0, Xamarin, Unity, and Mono will implement the 2.1 version, .Net Framework 4.8 will not. Thus, types required to use these features will not be available when C# 8. 0 is targeted to .Net Framework 4.8. The C# compiler, though, is lenient about types it depends on and will target types with the right names and shapes if it can find them.

text Fix your data before you move it to the cloud
Tue, 13 Nov 2018 03:00:00 -0800

Data seems to be a forgotten component of a good system architecture. In cloud migrations, I’m often taken back how the data that was bad on-premises is worse in the cloud.

What does bad data look like? Poor data structures, redundant data, no single source of truth, and security and compliance issues all top the list. Indeed, too many enterprises have just kicked the data can down the road using cloud computing camouflage.

Here are two core data recommendations for properly migrating to the cloud.

A working draft of the standard for the next revision of the C programming language, referred to for now as "C2x," is now available for review.

Most of the changes thus far approved for C2x don’t involve adding new features, but instead clarify and refine how C should behave in different implementations and with regard to its bigger brother C++. The emphasis on refinement is in line with how previous revisions to C—C11 and most recently C17—have unfolded. 

As described in the C2x Charter, the plan strongly emphasizes keeping future editions of the language compatible with the large body of existing C code, and to avoid (although not totally rule out) "quiet changes" or changes "that cause a working program to work differently without notice."

text 12 ways Azure beats AWS
Mon, 12 Nov 2018 03:00:00 -0800

Amazon Web Services is an amazing constellation of products, but it’s far from the only game in the cloud world. Microsoft realized long ago that the future of enterprise computing lies in the cloud and it has been investing heavily in owning a piece of this market. The number of products sitting under the Azure brand umbrella continues to grow and it has become hard to find something that Azure can’t do. In many cases, Azure is running right alongside the other cloud providers and in a few of the corners it’s inching into the lead.

Mon, 12 Nov 2018 03:00:00 -0800

To store user-specific data in ASP.Net Core web applications, we use the session state. However, using session state in ASP.Net core is not straightforward—at least, session state in ASP.Net Core doesn’t work the way it used to work in legacy ASP.Net applications. This article examines how we can work with session state in ASP.Net Core.

I’m often taken aback by the number of mistakes IT made with on-premises traditional systems that it’s now replicating in the cloud. If you have a cruddy applications design or overall architecture and relocate it the cloud, you end up with cruddy IT assets that are now in the cloud.

Fact: The cloud is not an automated change agent for bad IT decisions. Indeed, those bad decisions will typically be amplified in the cloud because you can move faster and so encounter mistakes much sooner—and perhaps more often.

The biggest architectural mistake that I see in the cloud involves coupling. Back in the day, applications were tightly coupled between other applications and data sources. If one thing stopped, the entire system stopped. So if the database went down, all connected applications did as well, including any systems that sent or received data from the database.

Given some recent comments by Jason Zander, Microsoft’s executive vce president for Azure, it’s worth repeating: If you have a choice to make between superior technology and superior community, take the community option. Every. Single. Time. While tech supremacy is somewhat subjective, it’s nearly always fleeting in the face of community development.

text GraphQL gets its own foundation
Tue, 06 Nov 2018 09:00:00 -0800

The Linux Foundation plans to host a foundation to support the GraphQL API project, with the intent of growing a neutral ecosystem for the technology.

GraphQL is a specification for building APIs. It is intended to make cross-platform and mobile development simpler. Providing an alternative to REST, GraphQL lets developers use a strongly typed query language to define requests and responses, letting an application specify what it needs from an API. GraphQL enables access to multiple data sources through a single request.

The GraphQL Foundation will have an open governance model to encourage technical contribution and provide a framework for stewardship. Formation could take several months or possibly longer.

As a technologist, I can get the cloud technology to work. Always. But the ability to change the culture to adapt to cloud technology is what’s hard, and, in some cases, impossible.

It’s important to understand your own culture and what changes need to be made around the adoption of cloud computing. A team of authors from IBM agree with me on this point. In their latest release, The Cloud Adoption Playbook, they say what many of us already knew:

Many companies adopt cloud computing to support innovation and rapid change. However, those companies may not understand the fundamental cultural changes needed to make this adoption work long-term.

I often think of Jack Nicholson from A Few Good Men, when he stated, "You can’t handle the truth!" Replace "truth" with "cloud," and you have pretty much have the message these days to companies that are thinking well above their cultural capabilities.

text Review: MXNet deep learning shines with Gluon
Mon, 05 Nov 2018 03:00:00 -0800

When I reviewed MXNet v0.7 in 2016, I felt that it was a promising deep learning framework with excellent scalability (nearly linear on GPU clusters), good auto-differentiation, and state-of-the-art support for CUDA GPUs. I also felt that it needed work on its documentation and tutorials, and needed a lot more examples in its model zoo. In addition, I would have liked to see a high-level interface for MXNet, which I imagined would be Keras.

text How to add sparklines to R tables
Mon, 05 Nov 2018 03:00:00 -0800

Often, all you need in a table is data as text and numbers. But sometimes, you’d like to visualize results in each row, too. That’s especially true when each row of data is a trend over time.

You can do that inside a new table column with mini inline graphs called sparklines. You might be familiar with them in Excel, but you can create them in interactive HTML tables, too—with the sparkline package and four basic steps:

  1. Add a column in the data frame that has sparkline data and formatting.
  2. Add a snippet of JavaScript to the table options. That’s the same code all the time, so you can save it once and reuse it.
  3. This one is very easy: Add escape = FALSE as a datatable() argument so HTML displays as HTML and not as the actual code.
  4. This is also very easy: Pipe the results to a function that adds necessary dependencies so the table will display sparklines.

1. Add a column with sparkline data and formatting

Before adding sparklines to a table, you need a table. Here’s code to generate a table from a data frame called prices, including adding search filters and formatting one of the columns as percents:
