#Windows10 November Update is available again

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Microsoft restores the availability of Windows 10 November Update, which was pulled just after release. The giant company also explained why it was pulled. If you have the RTM build 10240, check out Windows Update. You might have got the notification to install version 1511 by that time. If you have already installed the November Update (version 1511, build 10586), there’s a patch for you. To know more about this, continue reading the post.   Good news for you, who are eagerly waiting for the Windows 10 November Update and missed the chance to install it before it
was pulled by Microsoft due to some post production issues. For last few days it was quite unclear about the reason and now the giant company opened up their mouth and again pushed the same with fixes. Here is what they stated about the issue: Recently we learned of an issue that could have impacted an extremely small number of people who had already installed Windows 10 and applied the November update. Once these customers installed the November update, a few of their settings preferences may have inadvertently not been retained. For these customers, we will restore their settings over the coming...(Read whole news on source site)

Microservice Style

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
With apologies to McIlroy, Pinson, and Tague. A number of maxims have gained currency among the builders and users of microservices to explain and promote their characteristic style: (i) Make each microservice do one thing well. To do a new job, build afresh rather than complicate old microservices by adding new features. (ii) Expect the output of every microservice to become the input to another, as yet unknown, microservice. Don't clutter output with extraneous information. Avoid strongly-typed
or binary input formats. Don't insist on object trees as input. (iii) Design and build microservices to be created and deployed early, ideally within weeks. Don't hesitate to throw away the clumsy parts and rebuild them. (iv) Use testing and deployment tooling (in preference to manual efforts) to lighten a programming task, even if you have to detour to build the tools and expect to throw some of them out after you've finished using them. ...(Read whole news on source site)

Understanding LINQ to Objects (8) More Useful Queries

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
[LINQ via C#] - [LINQ to Objects] After introducing the query methods from .NET and from Ix, this part will demonstrate some other useful query methods: Returns a new IEnumerable sequence (deferred execution)  Generation: Create, RandomInt32, RandomDouble, FromValue, FromValues, EmptyIfNull Filtering: Timeout Concatenation: Join, Append, Prepend, AppendTo, PrependTo Partitioning: Subsequence Exception: Catch, Retry Comparison: OrderBy, OrderByDescending, ThenBy, ThenByDescending, GroupBy, Join, GroupJoin, Distinct, Union, Intersect, Except List: Insert, Remove, RemoveAll, RemoveAt Retuns a new collection (immediate execution) Comparison: ToDictionary, ToLookup Returns a single value (immediate execution) List: IndexOf, LastIndexOf Aggregation: PercentileExclusive, PercentileInclusive, Percentile Quantifiers: IsNullOrEmpty, IsNotNullOrEmpty Comparison: Contains, SequenceEqual Returns void (immediate execution) Iteration: ForEach Regarding .NET defines an Enumerable class to host the query methods, and Ix
has an EnumerableEx, this tutorial will create an EnumerableX class: public static partial class EnumerableX { } Returns a new IEnumerable sequence Generation The previous part introduced the Create query method of Ix, which accepts a Func> sequence factory, or a Func> iterator factory. However, that’s too specific to the iterator pattern of OOP. A Create overload can be useful if it takes a general Func value factory: public static IEnumerable Create(Func valueFactory, int? count = null) { Contract.Requires(valueFactory != null); if (count == null) { while (true) ...(Read whole news on source site)
