Recap: Enterprise Ready Cloud Roadshow, Bhubaneswar

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
It’s almost one week by now… I had a chance to speak in front of the great audience of Microsoft Developer Community, Odisha. Came back with some good moments spent at Bhubaneswar during “Enterprise Ready Cloud OS Roadshow” event. In this post, sharing my slides on “Azure Mobile Services” along with few snaps of the event for the people who missed it.   On 21st March, me and Abhishek met at Kolkata Airport and boarded together for the event. Old flight but had a good experience. When we reached at the event, it was already started and Nirmal was giving
his speech on overview of Azure platform. After his session, Abhishek started his speech on Azure platform and covered most of the things. After lunch, Tadit presented Azure website and at the end, I started with “Azure Mobile Services” demonstrating the integration part in both Windows Store app and Windows Phone app. Here is the slide (PPT), that I used to demonstrate “Azure Mobile Services”. I will soon write an in-depth blog post on that topic, but till that time use it as reference.  Here are some snaps from the event:    And a token of appreciation from the group of Microsoft Developer Community,...(Read whole news on source site)

Here we go, another round of updates of the Office Roadmap. Don't we love them! And sometimes they roll out even before the roadmap is updated ;-) Changes 2015-03-26 These are the change since yesterday. Now Launched Office 365 Admin App Update: Directly to launched status Features now rolling out Office 365 Groups: adding Like to Conversations: New stuff on the roadmap. Seems like the Office 365 (Exchange) team is building a whole new Yammer… Office 365 Notification Pane: (from development) This feature seems to cause some disturbance in the force. It's rolling out, but it
seems like it is just half finished… It does not (at the time of writing this) work and the user experience is…confusing. Option for Passwords to Never Expire: (new on the list) Allows admin to use the UI to configure this rather than only PowerShell Tighter Yammer Integration with Delve: (new on the list) More Yammer in Delve. Why not more Groups in Delve? Features now In Development Office 365 Setup Wizard: (new on the list) The replacement for the basic and advanced setup options. The wizard will include migration from on-premises, Google Apps and more! Really neat!

Which Keywords Has An ETW Provider Enabled?

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Originally posted on: little program has a simple task. It should decode a hex bitmask into its original bits as hex values from which it was composed from. As bonus we can also parse an ETW manifest and print the corresponding keywords. Since most low level tools use hex numbers which have specific bits turned on I often want to know which things were actually enabled. This is useful to e.g. see which providers PerfView enables for .NET specific stuff. If you check in PerfView the .NET Alloc checkbox I want to see what is enabled.
