#VS2015 – Associate Recent WorkItems, very useful extension if you perform #CheckIn actions again and again with the same WorkItem

Hola!

Again Visual Studio Extension Friday. Today’s extension is very useful when you perform Check-ins associated to the same WorkItem again and again. I learn the WorkItem id number, and I quickly add it into the Pending Changes panel, or can search for the WorkItem using a WorkItem Query. Anyways this extension make the CheckIn process much faster.

The extension display the latest 5 WorkItems used in the current Team Project, and you can choose to associate your CheckIn action to these WorkItems, or even open them.

Like always, a quick video is the better explanation.

Enjoy your weekend!

#VS2015 – Associate Recent WorkItems, te evitas seleccionar una y otra vez el mismo WorkItem

Hola!

Otro Viernes de extensiones para Visual Studio 2015. La extensión de hoy es muy útil si trabajas con Team Foundation Server y haces CheckIns constantes asociados al mismo WorkItem.

En mi caso, me he aprendido de memoria los WorkItems Ids y los ingreso a mano en el panel de Pending Changes. Otra opción es buscarlos utilizando una WorkItem Query. Esta extensión, nos presenta los últimos 5 WorkItems con los que hemos trabajado en el Team Project y desde el mismo podemos asociarlo con nuestros cambios.

Desde el panel desplegamos un menú contextual y podemos, abrir el WorkItem o asociarlo. Como siempre mejor verlo en acción

Enjoy your weekend!

Saludos @ Madrid

#VS2015 – This is the only way you´ll add comments in your code #EmojiVs #VSGallery

Hola!

Source Code seems to be one of the most popular topics in my blog, today is … different.

You have only one reason to add comments, and I mean ONLY ONE: GitHub’s EMOJIs in VS IDE.

Something like this …

Download you can get the VSGallery installer and also GitHub source code location.

#VS2015 – El unico motivo por el que tu codigo tendra comentarios es este #EmojiVS #VSGallery

Hola!

Parece que los comentarios en Source Code es el tema de mis últimos posts, aunque este es bastante diferente.

La única excusa para agregar comentarios, repito LA UNICA excusa es poder usar los EMOJIs de GitHub en el mismo.

Algo tan simple y útil como esto

Debajo los links al instalador en VSGallery y al Source Code en GitHub.

#GITHUB – #Intel released the #SourceCode of Stephen Hawking’s speech recognition app

Hola!

When you are on holidays you must face the hard choice: run 10K or get into some amazing piece of source code. This one is very interesting, is Stephen Hawking’s speech recognition app developed by INTEL. The app name is Assistive Context-Aware Toolkit (ACAT), and as you probably already know it was created for Stephen Hawking who is affected by LS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), The main goal of the app is perform a face analysis and generate text based on facial gestures.

The main source code of the app is on GitHub (link). And you can download the code very in a couple of clicks. However I strongly recommend spend some time with the User Guide (link), so you can understand the prerequisites needed and the configuration steps.

The 2 main Options are download the app or download the source code. Previous image shows my choice.

Now I need to find some time to dig into the app, and probably write some posts.

So far, I read and understand that the app has 3 main components:

– The app perform face analysis using a webcam, that’s the entry point to start the “word translation from face gestures”

– There is a predictive engine to help in the Word autocomplete

– There is also a virtual keyboard (?)

I can quickly find 2 of them in the Source Code. And, of course, this is not an “everyone’s app”. The main purpose of put the source code available, is to get support from the community to improve the app. Sai Prasad said:

“Our hope is that, by open sourcing this configurable platform, developers will continue to expand on this system by adding new user interfaces, new sensing modalities, word prediction and many other features"

#GITHUB – #Intel ha liberado el #SourceCode de la app de speech recognition que usa Stephen Hawking

Hola!

En vacaciones llegan estas noticias que te ponen frente a ti la difícil decisión de correr 10K o ponerse a estudiar un poco de source code del bueno. En este caso es más que interesantes, ya que es la app que usa Stephen Hawking’s para hacer algo parecido a un "speech recognition". El nombre de la app es Assistive Context-Aware Toolkit (ACAT) y está especialmente diseñada para personas con ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), donde con pocos movimientos es posible realizar un análisis de contexto, interpretar gestos y traducir esta información a texto.

Intel ha liberado el código de la app en GitHub (link). Descargarlo es bastante simple, aunque lo primero es darle un vistazo al User Guide (link), ya que hay que instalar un par de prerrequisitos y ejecutar unos pasos de configuración.

Las opciones son ejecutar la app o descargar y utilizar el código fuente, la imagen anterior muestra el camino que he seguido. Ahora me toca entender un poco lo que hace la app, y ver si saco tiempo para escribir al respecto.

Por lo que he leído, la app tiene 3 componentes principales:

– utiliza una webcam para detectar movimientos faciales con los que puede comenzar a interpretar las “palabras”

– tiene un motor predictivo que permite realizar un autocompletado de estas palabras

– existe un teclado virtual

2 de ellos pueden identificarse rápidamente en el Source Code.

Obviamente, esta app no es para un uso doméstico ni mucho menos, pero parafraseando a Sai Prasad la idea es expandir el core del sistema con nuevas UIs, nuevos modelos predictivos, etc.

“Our hope is that, by open sourcing this configurable platform, developers will continue to expand on this system by adding new user interfaces, new sensing modalities, word prediction and many other features"
