Windows 10, UWP, AudioGraph–Recording Microphone to WAV File

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Just a snippet of code to share – I hadn’t tried to record from the system’s microphone before with Windows 10/UWP and I wanted to record PCM into a file so I had to spend 20 minutes trying to figure it out. This sample was incredibly helpful and I stripped it down for my purposes … Continue reading Windows 10, UWP, AudioGraph–Recording Microphone to WAV File →

Some thoughts on current trends

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I’ve been thinking about some of the current trends and hyped terms/concepts lately. On one hand I’m convinced we’re coming out of the inflection point chaos that has consumed our industry over the past several years, and on the other hand any time things start to stabilize the hype-masters come out of the woodwork because there’s money to be made. This isn’t new – see my SOA, dollar signs and trust boundaries post from 2004… In this post I’m going to briefly talk about microservices, containers, and devops. What’s interesting about that 2004 post is that it is one of quite a number of posts I did
on service-oriented concepts, and most of my focus at the time was on “pure service-oriented” thinking – which never took off – and which is now known by the newly-trendy term “microservices”. In other words, this “new” microservices stuff is just the type of SOA that we should have been doing for the past decade. Oops. As always, when an old idea comes back around under a new name, we owe it to ourselves to ask whether there’s anything different this time that might make the idea more successful than it was last time? For example, it took us decades to get asynchronous programming to become mainstream. We tried...(Read whole news on source site)

Do You Know How Much Your Azure VM Costs?

Originally posted on: You go through the Azure price calculator and figure out everything you think are going to need for your Azure VM and how much each resource will cost you on a monthly basis.  You then pick a template from the marketplace and implement it assuming you know what services are being stood up.  Do you really know? What you may not realize is that if you didn’t go through the pricing calculator thuroughly you may be in for some surprises on your bill.  Not only do you get charged for the hardware
that you have selected, but also the image that you choose to run on it.  The cost per minute of each image is not posted on the image itself.  This is made up of each component you are using and can be figured by reviewing adding up all the costs listed here.  If you don’t know to look there then you won’t know that there are additional costs until you get the invoice at the end of your billing period, and these can really add up. As I mentioned above this surprise can also be avoided...(Read whole news on source site)
