    Visual Studio 2019 16.9 brings memory error detection, C++ capabilities

    pubsub.slavino.sk / infoworldcom · Friday, 5 March - 11:00 edit

Microsoft has reached two milestones with its signature Visual Studio IDE, making Visual Studio 2019 16.9 available as a production release and unveiling a preview of a planned Visual Studio 2019 16.10.

Both were published on March 2. Visual Studio 2019 16.9 can be accessed here while the version 16.10 preview is available here . Visual Studio 2019 16.9 features general availability of Address Sanitizer (ASan) fast memory error detection, for finding runtime memory issues. With the production release, Microsoft Visual C++ now can work out which runtime libraries are needed to use ASan with a project.

    Multicloud architecture decomposition simplified

    pubsub.slavino.sk / infoworldcom · Friday, 5 March - 11:00 edit

Architectures are like opinions; everyone has one that’s based on their own biases. Sometimes it’s a dedication to using only open source solutions, a specific brand of public cloud, relational databases, you name it. These biases are often the driving factors that determine what solution you employ and how bad or good those choices are.

The issue is that when you choose components or technology based on a bias, often you don’t consider technology that’s better able to meet the core requirements of the business. This leads to an architecture that may approach but never get to 100% optimization.

[ Also on InfoWorld: Which multicloud architecture will win out? ]

Optimization means that costs are kept at a minimum and efficiency is kept at a maximum. You can give 10 cloud architects the same problems to solve and get 10 very different solutions with prices that vary by many millions of dollars a year.

    What is an internal developer platform? PaaS done your way

    pubsub.slavino.sk / infoworldcom · Thursday, 4 March - 11:00 edit

As cloud computing , containerization , devops , and microservice architectures have established themselves as the building blocks for modern application development, the need for a simple way to manage those resources for internal software developer teams has become more and more important.

    What is discovery and dependency mapping?

    pubsub.slavino.sk / infoworldcom · Thursday, 4 March - 11:00 edit

Try asking IT for data on the development, test, production, and disaster recovery environments in the data center and public clouds like AWS or Azure. It’s a straightforward question, yet answering it accurately and without going through a time-consuming audit is difficult for many IT operations departments.

Service configuration management is a core ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) management practice , and the CMDB (configuration management database) is the data warehouse that stores information on IT assets. IT’s task is to load and maintain the CMDB with accurate, up-to-date, comprehensive information. Maintaining the CMDB is a significant challenge for organizations that have large IT footprints or that make frequent changes using devops CI/CD automations to deploy applications and IaC (infrastructure as code) to configure multicloud infrastructure.

    Deno 1.8 preps for GPU-accelerated machine learning

    pubsub.slavino.sk / infoworldcom · Wednesday, 3 March - 22:05 edit

Deno 1.8, released on March 2, offers preliminary support for an API to bring enhanced machine learning to the secure JavaScript/TypeScript runtime .

Experimental backing for the WebGPU API , for performing operations such as rendering and computation on a GPU, provides a path toward out-of-the-box GPU accelerated machine learning in Deno, release notes said. The WebGPU API gives developers a low-level, high-performance cross-architecture mechanism to program GPU hardware from JavaScript. It serves as the effective successor to WebGL on the web.

    Microsoft’s Power Fx low-code language channels Excel

    pubsub.slavino.sk / infoworldcom · Wednesday, 3 March - 19:52 edit

With its Power Fx language introduced this week, Microsoft is making a play in the low-code development realm.

Announced on March 2, the general purpose language is based on the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and spreadsheet-like formulas, sharing Excel syntax and functions. With Power Px, Microsoft is attempting to provide citizen developers with an approachable way to express logic. Power Fx already is in use across Microsoft’s Power Platform . Documentation on the language can be found on GitHub .

    How to work with static anonymous functions in C# 9

    pubsub.slavino.sk / infoworldcom · Monday, 1 March - 11:00 edit

Anonymous functions were introduced in the C# programming language long ago. Although anonymous functions have many benefits, they are not cheap. Avoiding unnecessary allocations matters, and this is why static anonymous functions were introduced in C# 9. In C# 9 lambda or anonymous methods can have a static modifier.

This article talks about static anonymous functions and why they are useful, using code examples to illustrate the concepts. To work with the code examples provided in this article, you should have Visual Studio 2019 installed in your system. If you don’t already have a copy, you can download Visual Studio 2019 here .

    15 ways to leave your cloud provider

    pubsub.slavino.sk / infoworldcom · Monday, 1 March - 11:00 edit

The younger generation may find this hard to believe, but there was once a sitcom, “M*A*S*H,” built around all of the funny moments in the Korean War. It ran for 11 years. When the script writers wanted to add a bit of excitement, the war would shift, danger would approach, and it was time to “bug out.” The patients would be loaded onto buses, the tents would be torn down, and someone would start saying, “The M in M.A.S.H. stands for Mobile.” (The rest of the acronym was “Army Surgical Hospital.”)

The modern IT staff’s job may never involve moving bodies recovering from major abdominal surgery or amputation, but the need to remain nimble seems to be growing and growing. More and more teams are finding that their carefully built architectures are sitting on a layer of quicksand. The hard won data and the code crafted in late night bouts of genius might need to be moved—and sometimes the move needs to be done before the end of the weekend.
