      .NET Conf 2019 was full of great news and interesting pieces of information for those who love .NET world like me. It was specially interesting for me to watch presentation The Future of Blazor on the Client by Dan Roth who introduced on-going work with Blazor and plans for near future. Here’s my short overview with explanations about what’s going on.Here’s the roadmap for client-side Blazor shown by Dan Roth during his presentation.

      Note: First stable release of client-side Blazor is planned to launch at May 2020.

      so, cloud again. we have many cloud providers, but there are 2 major ones
      AWS and Azure. google cloud platform is good but market is dominated by those AWS and Azure. AWS is first to enter into this, hence the advantage, but Azure is closing the gap real fast. Azure is more friendlier to normal users as well. it integrates better with other Microsoft services. in general it doesn't much matter which one to use IMHO. now, bout certificates, Microsoft announces role-based certificates recently. so before you pick the exam you think is necessary and do that one. Microsoft shifts the focus from product knowledge to a skills-based approach based on specific job roles. for example, you now have Azure Developer Associate role, then you need to pass the relevant exam (AZ 203) to be certified. exam covers the ground to be recognized as such. before that you need to pass 2 different set of exams, I guess. anyway, the basic fundamental Azure exam is AZ 900(Microsoft Azure Fundamentals) which is easy. it gives you the entry point to other exams and obtaining the role(s) required by your organization or your own desire. 

      there are plenty of resources available online, if you decide to sit for one of Azure exams. Microsoft its own leaning website, pluralsight, udemy etc. practice exams can be obtained as well. some good resources can be found on git hub too. 
      there are some study guide from people who passed the exam as well. 
      good luck

      Selenium is a automation testing framework for web pages. as it states in their web site is just "automates browsers". so say you have a website and you want to test it, then you need selenium. you have some options if you're new to Selenium. Selenium IDE, which comes in as a browser plugins (Firefox and Chrome). it's like a recorder. you lunch it, then you nviagte to the website under the test. you interact with the site i.e. click on links, fill forms, go back and forth etc. it records all of that. after that you  can play it back, so see the interaction. but you don't have the options to export the whole scenario as a test file in your language of choice. you need other plugin to achieve that (Katalon Recorder). however, using method like this is only good for start. it just gives you an idea how it works. for serious, testing and development, you need to look into using selenium framework in  your testing environment. it can be done in any programming language. if you use java, then you just get the required packages into your project. so if you have a maven project, then get it from maven repository page, put it into your pom and start coding against it to automate testing your website. or if you're into .Net, then you just download the required nuget packages into your project and start writing your tests. there are some design patterns and conventions needs to be followed if you want to do a proper testing, like page object model, annotation etc. 
      Now, Specflow is a different thing. it can be used in combination with selenium. it is just gives you more readable scenarios for your testing, then you can write your tests matching those scenarios steps. 
      Specflow is the .Net implementation of Cucumber(Java and others). 
      this was a short summary of Selenium and Specflow, however it is a big area to just cover in one post. I think you have enough to look into it, if you are mindful about BDD and testing in general.

      During the company’s Build 2015 developer conference, Microsoft announced that both Android and iOS applications will be able to run on the upcoming Windows 10 platform. 

      Using the new Project Islandwood (iOS) and Project Astoria (Android) development kits, developers will be able to port their applications and games to Windows universal apps. Microsoft is letting Android developers use Java and C++ code on Windows 10, allowing applications to be quickly and easily compiled for the platform. Since the majority of the code being used by Android devs is being recycled, this will save app makers a ton of time and money in the long run.

      Microsoft is urging developers to bring their code to Windows 10 with only minor changes at the start. Once the bulk of the app is built, the devs are encouraged to take advantage of some key integration points to build in Windows-specific features like Cortana, Live Tiles, Xbox Live, Holograms and more, which are all included in the Project Astoria dev kit. Microsoft has been testing its new APIs out for the past few months, specifically on the popular puzzle game Candy Crush. In fact, the Candy Crush version that’s currently on Windows is converted from iOS code using Microsoft’s new Windows APIs.

      To clarify, this doesn’t mean you’ll be able to install any APK on Windows 10. This is simply just Microsoft making it much easier for Android devs to convert their applications. Microsoft has struggled over the years to keep up with the number of apps available for both Android and iOS, so for the end user, this is certainly great news. The Google Play Store will never come pre-loaded on any Windows 10 devices, but rest assured many more applications will soon make their way to the platform.

      It's going to be okay.

      Just give things a little time.
      And in the meantime...
      keep believing in yourself;
      take the best of care;
      try to put things in perspective;
      remember what's most important;
      don't forget that someone cares;
      search for the positive side;
      learn the lessons to be learned;
      and find your way through to the inner qualities:
      the strength, the smiles,
      the wisdom,and the optimistic outlook
      that are such special parts of you.

      It's going to be okay.

      if you have Ipad  and you read books most of the time GoodReader is the best App out there to read ebooks. it supports different types of formts and has so good functionalities. the only drawback is it costs you AU$5.99 to buy it on App Store. there is always a way around of course. if you can jail break your IOS device you can have the cracked version for free...:)

      An American lawmaker has said cycling is bad for the environment. He also said cyclists should pay a tax to ride their bikes on the roads. Ed Orcutt, a representative from Washington State, sent an e-mail to the owner of a local bike shop to outline his thinking. He wrote: "A cyclist has an increased heart rate and respiration. That means that the act of riding a bike results in greater emissions of carbon dioxide from the rider. Since CO2 is…a greenhouse gas…cyclists are actually polluting when they ride." Mr Orcutt said: "You can't just say that there's no pollution as a result of riding a bicycle….You would be giving off more CO2 if you are riding a bike than driving in a car."

      There is little question, big data analytics, data science, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML), a subcategory of AI, have all experienced a tremendous surge in popularity over the last few years. Behind the marketing hype, these technologies are having a significant influence on many aspects of our modern lives. Due to their popularity and potential benefits, commercial enterprises, academic institutions, and the public sector are rushing to develop hardware and software solutions to lower the barriers to entry and increase the velocity of ML and Data Scientists and Engineers.

      Which of these two proportions is higher: 4 out of 10, or 300 out of 1000? This sounds like a silly question. Obviously 4/10=.4, which is greater than 300/1000=.3.
      But suppose you were a baseball recruiter, trying to decide which of two potential players is a better batter based on how many hits they get. One has achieved 4 hits in 10 chances, the other 300 hits in 1000 chances. While the first player has a higher proportion of hits, it’s not a lot of evidence: a typical player tends to achieve a hit around 27% of the time, and this player’s 4/10 could be due to luck. The second player, on the other hand, has a lot of evidence that he’s an above-average batter.

      I have been surprised how many people are not aware of Microsoft’s open source shift over last 8 years. Lots of people are not aware of current state of .NET, .NET Core and ASP.NET Core. And I do not blame them, they have been occupied by some other responsibilities or technologies.
      Before diving into ASP.NET Core and all amazing things about, let’s first take a look at the .NET framework and the current state of ASP.NET MVC.

      Python is fast becoming the preferred language for data scientists – and for good reasons. It provides the larger ecosystem of a programming language and the depth of good scientific computation libraries. If you are starting to learn Python, have a look at learning path on Python.Among its scientific computation libraries, I found Pandas to be the most useful for data science operations. Pandas, along with Scikit-learn provides almost the entire stack needed by a data scientist. This article focuses on providing 12 ways for data manipulation in Python. I’ve also shared some tips & tricks which will allow you to work faster.

      Many of those who call themselves statisticians just won't admit that data science heavily relies on and uses (heretical, rule-breaking) statistical science, or they don't recognize the true statistical nature of these data science techniques (some are 15-year old), or are opposed to the modernization of their statistical arsenal. They already missed the train when machine learning became a popular discipline (also heavily based on statistics) more than 15 years ago. Now machine learning professionals, who are statistical practitioners working on problems such as clustering, far outnumber statisticians.

      About data scientists

      Rising alongside the relatively new technology of big data is the new job title data scientist. While not tied exclusively to big data projects, the data scientist role does complement them because of the increased breadth and depth of data being examined, as compared to traditional
      roles.

      So what does a data scientist do?

      A data scientist represents an evolution from the business or data analyst role. The formal training is similar, with a solid foundation typically in computer science and applications, modeling, statistics, analytics and math. What sets the data scientist apart is strong business acumen, coupled with the ability to communicate findings to both business and IT leaders in a way that can influence how an organization approaches a business challenge. Good data scientists will not just address business problems, they will pick the right problems that have the most value to the organization.

      Feature selection techniques have become an apparent need in many bioinformatics applications. In addition to the large pool of techniques that have already been developed in the machine learning and data mining fields, specific applications in bioinformatics have led to a wealth of newly proposed techniques.

      According to the 2015 Forbes List released on Monday, Bill Gates' net worth rose to $79.2 billion (70.54 billion euros) from $76 billion a year earlier, putting the Microsoft founder at the top for the 16th year in the last 21.

      Mexico telecommunications mogul Carlos Slim Helu ranked second, at $77.1 billion, while Warren Buffett, chief of US investment firm Berkshire Hathaway, was third at $72.7 billion.

      Amancio Ortega, the Spanish founder of Inditex, which includes clothing retailer Zara, was fourth at $64.5 billion, while Oracle Chairman Larry Ellison was fifth at $54.3 billion.

      Forbes Magazine, which has compiled the list for 29 years, said it calculated each person's net worth based on stock prices and exchange rates on Feb. 13, 2014. It also noted that it had found a record 1,826 billionaires in the world last year. Among them were 290 newcomers, including 71 from China.

      He may be one of the world’s pivotal computing pioneers, mentioned in the same exuberantly geeky breath as Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, and Tim Berners-Lee. His technological exploits may have earned him over $80 billion, making him the world’s richest man. Yet even Bill Gates is somewhat concerned about the potentially destructive power of technology.

      In a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Wednesday afternoon, Microsoft’s former CEO fielded an array of questions ranging from the banal (“Do you have a pet?”) to the cringeworthy (“Star Trek or Star Wars?”) to the painfully esoteric.

      HALF MOON BAY, Calif. — PayPal co-founder and billionaire investor Peter Thiel had a lot on his mind Tuesday.Thiel was at the Ritz-Carlton ostensibly to plug his new book, Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future. But for those sitting in a packed conference room attending Venture Alpha West 2014, with waves cascading against the cliffs outside, Thiel delivered much more than a reading of passages from his bestseller. In fact, he didn’t touch the book at all.

      Investors are selling British stocks and the pound before Scotland votes next week on whether to break away from the United Kingdom.

      A vote in favor of independence would end a 307-year union with England and have far reaching consequences for the economy, currency, banks and industry. There could also be knock-on effects across Europe.

      When the popular, reputable Italian financial magazine Panorama Economy placed then-20-year-old college student Matteo Achilli on its cover in March 2012 with the headline "Italian Zuckerberg," he became a media sensation.Soon every major Italian news outlet wanted to cover the kid who'd started a professional networking website calledEgomnia. Their interest, along with that of national politicians and business executives, expressed the hope that this young entrepreneur could become Italy's version of an American hotshot tech CEO, one who could rub shoulders with the real Mark Zuckerberg.Outlets outside of Italy have caught on to the hype as well, including the BBC, which just included Achilli in its new documentary "The Next Billionaires."Achilli, whose site won't be available to an international market until October, already has a dramatic biopic scheduled to premiere on Italian television next year and has made deals with Microsoft and Google.

      we as human being, who evolved over thousand of years, have been a social species. we like to be in a group, well mostly we do as long others respect our privacy, or we enjoy that time. we like working in groups. other members can  point out our problems which we might not have seen, or they could show us a way to solve a problem, or simply we could just not do our assigned works and let the other members be worried about it, and at the end they have to do out part as well. the reason is that they have been working hard for a while
      done everything on their part, they don't want to ruined it by some lazy smart pants. so they unwillingly do that person works as well, but on what cost? we all faced this situation, playing games, doing report in a company, doing assignment in college, high school, etc. there are 2 points of view here: one from that lazy person and one from other sides. that lazy person always finds somebody to stick to and gets whatever they want. not everybody knows him. they are always so talkative, because of the lack of skills on the job, or laziness, or even feeling smarter than others, since they think they can achieve more without trying hard like others do. on the other side, there are good guys. they want to get the job done. they do the best..almost the best...they can to deliver the jobs were assigned to them, and they expect others do the same,but we're not living in a ideal world, or are we? i share my recent experience in my 3 group projects which i've had this semester, and sadly i've been team mate with one of this type of creature in 2 of them. In one of the project we were supposed to tune a given database and write the SQL commands, test the run time, write a report of cost...time vs. space, etc. it was time consuming since the database was big, the biggest table had 300k records, and there are 10 tables with different size. having 2 weeks till due date, i'd been done just less than 50% of the assignment and there were other works as well. so this guy, who is my tutorial time too, asked me about the assignment. i said it's ok so far,  then he asked that do i want to team up? i instantly said yes, thinking it would be good we could finish earlier and better and we have other assignments as well.long story short, till due day, i had to walk through the guy to do this, to do that,and he was pissed at me!? on due day, i finished my part, and i said: "ok, this is tuning for each SQL part, you do the cost, space analysis. it should be easy, mainly copy lecture notes and write something. and that's exactly he did. he copy paste the lecture notes and sent it to me 4 hours before due time. i had to go through each of the part to make it better and at the end i submitted but that was awful. we just got the good mark for tuning section. in other group project, which was a UI design for HCI subject, we were supposed to create a website. i didn't need to be professional, it just needed to follow the requirements for HCI stuff. anyway, he was in our team too. he just talked and gives ideas," this one is better, that one looks good, we should do that..." at one point i got angry i asked" are you gonna do that? who's gonna do that in a short time? plus this is not our only assignment. he said why are you talking like that. i said sorry. whatever team decides i listen. at the end i was assigned to do the coding part for website, and he got the part to do the slides, which was 8 slides, and mainly copied from our first presentation n earlier week. result was, we got a good mark for prototype and presentation, but for the individual report he got the better mark than me, why? because i spent too much time on that website, and my individual report mainly...all of them actually... was done in last 2 days. as result i got just passing mark for my report. now, my question is i'm not that type of guy to be the same as him, but what can i do in team work? specially in college environment....wow i typed a lot...to whoever got here..well good job reading it...

      There is little question, big data analytics, data science, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML), a subcategory of AI, have all experienced a tremendous surge in popularity over the last few years. Behind the marketing hype, these technologies are having a significant influence on many aspects of our modern lives. Due to their popularity and potential benefits, commercial enterprises, academic institutions, and the public sector are rushing to develop hardware and software solutions to lower the barriers to entry and increase the velocity of ML and Data Scientists and Engineers.

      so, cloud again. we have many cloud providers, but there are 2 major ones
      AWS and Azure. google cloud platform is good but market is dominated by those AWS and Azure. AWS is first to enter into this, hence the advantage, but Azure is closing the gap real fast. Azure is more friendlier to normal users as well. it integrates better with other Microsoft services. in general it doesn't much matter which one to use IMHO. now, bout certificates, Microsoft announces role-based certificates recently. so before you pick the exam you think is necessary and do that one. Microsoft shifts the focus from product knowledge to a skills-based approach based on specific job roles. for example, you now have Azure Developer Associate role, then you need to pass the relevant exam (AZ 203) to be certified. exam covers the ground to be recognized as such. before that you need to pass 2 different set of exams, I guess. anyway, the basic fundamental Azure exam is AZ 900(Microsoft Azure Fundamentals) which is easy. it gives you the entry point to other exams and obtaining the role(s) required by your organization or your own desire. 

      there are plenty of resources available online, if you decide to sit for one of Azure exams. Microsoft its own leaning website, pluralsight, udemy etc. practice exams can be obtained as well. some good resources can be found on git hub too. 
      there are some study guide from people who passed the exam as well. 
      good luck

      I have been surprised how many people are not aware of Microsoft’s open source shift over last 8 years. Lots of people are not aware of current state of .NET, .NET Core and ASP.NET Core. And I do not blame them, they have been occupied by some other responsibilities or technologies.
      Before diving into ASP.NET Core and all amazing things about, let’s first take a look at the .NET framework and the current state of ASP.NET MVC.

      Introduction

      Forms authentication is a common feature in many C# MVC .NET web applications. There are a variety of methods for implementing forms authentication in MVC .NET. A key part for each, is the process of storing user specific details that are carried throughout the web application. User details such as Id, Username, Address, and Age may be obtained through various methods, such as by querying the database upon every request or as needed, loading from cache, context, or even loading from Session.

      In this tutorial, we’ll walk through the steps of implementing forms authentication in C# MVC .NET, specifically with MVC4. We’ll use a custom MembershipProvider class, along with a custom Principal object. The Principal will hold our custom user details, encrypted within the forms authentication ticket cookie, and allow us to access this data anywhere within the web application.

      Microsoft Corp. snapped up LinkedIn Corp. for $26.2 billion in the largest acquisition in its history, betting the professional social network can rev up the tech titan’s software offerings despite recent struggles by both companies.The deal is Chief Executive Satya Nadella’s latest effort to revitalize Microsoft, which was viewed not long ago as left behind by shifts in technology. Mr. Nadella hopes the deal will open new horizons for Microsoft’s Office suite as well as LinkedIn, both of which have saturated their markets, and generally bolster Microsoft’s revenue and competitive position.

      Many of those who call themselves statisticians just won't admit that data science heavily relies on and uses (heretical, rule-breaking) statistical science, or they don't recognize the true statistical nature of these data science techniques (some are 15-year old), or are opposed to the modernization of their statistical arsenal. They already missed the train when machine learning became a popular discipline (also heavily based on statistics) more than 15 years ago. Now machine learning professionals, who are statistical practitioners working on problems such as clustering, far outnumber statisticians.

      Coordinated Migration
      ‏By Aude Hofleitner, Ta Virot Chiraphadhanakul and Bogdan State on the Facebook Data Science Team.
      Large-scale migrations are an important part of human history. Whether they result from economics, wars, natural disaster, cultural imperatives or state policies, the worldwide flows of human beings are highly complex and notoriously difficult to measure. Here we turn our attention to a specific, fascinating kind of human migration, which we call “coordinated migration".
      Coordinated migration: 
      In a coordinated migration, a significant proportion of the population of a city has migrated, as a group, to a different city. More specifically, a flow of population from city A (hometown) to another city B (current city) is considered a coordinated migration if, among the cities in which people from hometown A currently live, city B is the city with the largest number of individuals with current city B, and hometown A.
      To study between-city coordinated migration, we examined aggregate, anonymized data on all users who list both their hometown and their current city on their Facebook profile.
      For a given hometown h, let c(h) denote the most likely current city of the users from hometown h, that is, the city c(h) is the most often listed as current city among the users from hometown h. Let p(h) denote the percentage of users from hometown h who currently live in the city c(h). Note that p(h) essentially represents the (empirical) conditional probability that a user lists c(h) as current city given that he or she lists h as hometown.
      For instance, let’s say 1,000,000 people list Boston as their hometown on Facebook. Out of these individuals, 300,000 list Boston as their current city, and no other city has more individuals listing Boston as their hometown. From the definitions above, it follows that Boston is the most likely current city for people who grew up in Boston. People who grew up in Boston still live there with a 30% probability. This is quite a common occurrence – for many cities, people are most likely to stay where they grew up. The study of coordinated migration focuses on cities for which the most likely current city is different from the hometown. For example, 67% of the individuals with Badagri, Nigeria as hometown have Lagos, Nigeria as their current city. Lagos is the most likely current city for people from Badagri.
      We formally define a coordinated migration as the movement of population from a hometown h to its most likely current city c(h) such that:
      At least 100 users have listed city h as their hometown.At least 20% of the users with hometown h have current city c(h) in their profile (p(h) > 0.2).The hometown h and its most likely current city c(h) are different cities. To reiterate, what we look into here are those cases where at least 20% of the users from city h moved out AND currently live in city c(h). For this reason, we gave the name of "coordinated" migration from hometown/origin h to current city/destination c(h).

      Note the following properties:
      Because there is a unique most likely current city for a given hometown, each city can only be the origin of a single coordinated migration.A city c can be the destination of several coordinated migrations. For such a city c, we count the number of coordinated migration flows which have c as destination and denote it n(c). For example, if there are three cities such that their corresponding most likely current city is c (with probability 20% of higher), then n(c) = 3.
      We display the coordinated migrations as follows:
      The origin cities of coordinated migrations are represented by blue dots.The destination cities of coordinated migrations are represented by red dots. For each destination city c, the size of the red dot depends on n(c), the number of coordinated migrations which end in the city, as defined above.The coordinated migrations are represented by an arc between the origin and the destination cities.
      The following map represents coordinated migrations over the world. Besides the coordinated migration, the map highlights (yellow shade) the countries with the largest urbanization growth between 2000 and 2012, according to the data from the World Bank

      I recently read a article regarding 'too much sitting' and i'm shocked to find out how dangerous it is for our health even if you work out regularly. it increases risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other prevalent chronic health problems. i refer you to read the references i provide for your own health. at the end of the day the only thing remains for you is your body, so it worth reading and doing something about it.

      It's been a while that i'm thinking why should people go to universities? there are lots of answers from different perspectives. to get science, knowledge, wealth, to be famous, to meet new people, to experience new things, to discover new things..etc.universities put you in a fixed box in a defined schedule to do scheduled project. you gain experience but you don't need to go to university to get that. well, that's not true for every subject or major because you need some expensive or exclusive equipment which are available in universities. however internet changed the paradigm. there are lots of good websites who offers the subject are available in universities for free. they even give you a certificate after finishing that course or subject. they have quizzes, assignments, and final exams. if you need help they help you. i tried some of them which were good. Udacity.com is one of them. another one which i recently found out and already a signed up for a course is edx.org. EDX put lectures from MIT, Harvard, etc...so give it try. plus you always have youtube to watch more videos.

      Since my last post noting happened here, come on guys, show some respect for your own sake. where was I?...aha...
      for last couple of weeks I have to learn PHP for one of my subjects assignments. It's mostly about writing SQL queries and use them in a already set up website, fetch data, save them, pass them, and these kind of operations, however it's more complicated than it looks like.I didn't have any idea about how to program in PHP, we know some programming languages, they are look the same at first but when you go deep you'll see the differences, and this is not just 'Hello World' program. then I have been pushed to learn the stuff needed. I didn't have time, beacuse of assignment due, lazyness of other team members, lack of coffee...whatever the reasons are. I learned to program in PHP, not saying I'm expert now but I learned quit a lot of stuff in a short time. my point is, if you want to learn something, you must have 2 things: first and most important part is the ultimate desire to do that..either by your decision or by have been forced by other things. second is good resources to boost you up at first stages. we have good lecturers who give us good materials; right the one it's needed, if you feel you need more, they give you references, then you go for that and search to get whatever you want.
      final word is if you want to do something...bad or good...you need to be pushed by yourself or other causes, then you'll find the way.it might takes shorter or longer period of time for different people but it'll benefit you at the end. I have more to say but time to go...if you have any experience in that, please share it in comment...Pamador out

      Android KitKat

      Prepare for a sweet new treat
      Android is the operating system that powers over 1 billion smartphones and tablets. Since these devices make our lives so sweet, each Android version is named after a dessert: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean. As everybody finds it difficult to stay away from chocolate we decided to name the next version of Android after one of our favorite chocolate treats, Kitkat®!

      Which of these two proportions is higher: 4 out of 10, or 300 out of 1000? This sounds like a silly question. Obviously 4/10=.4, which is greater than 300/1000=.3.
      But suppose you were a baseball recruiter, trying to decide which of two potential players is a better batter based on how many hits they get. One has achieved 4 hits in 10 chances, the other 300 hits in 1000 chances. While the first player has a higher proportion of hits, it’s not a lot of evidence: a typical player tends to achieve a hit around 27% of the time, and this player’s 4/10 could be due to luck. The second player, on the other hand, has a lot of evidence that he’s an above-average batter.

      A conditional probability is the probability of an event, given some other event has already occurred. In the below example, there are two possible events that can occur. A ball falling could either hit the red shelf (we'll call this event A) or hit the blue shelf (we'll call this event B) or both.

      If we know the statistics of these events across the entire population and then were to be given a single ball and told "this ball hit thered shelf (event A), what's the probability it also hit the blue shelf (event B)?" we could answer this question by providing the conditional probability of B given that A occurred or P(B|A).

      Computers have been in schools for a long time, but school children in England are now the guinea pigs for one of the most ambitious computing education programs in the world.
