Pues un par de días atrás, decidí preguntar si alguien tenía tiempo para charlar un rato. No me imaginada que se sumarian dos genios como Carlos y Jorge, y mucho menos que en 1 hora tendríamos tanto que comentar. El título del episodio solo cubre una parte de toda la charla, que repito, ha sido IMPRESIONANTE !
Bonus personal: Si te interesa el mundo del Cloud, te recomiendo escuchar lo que hemos aprendido de DAPR y el repaso al escenario / ejemplo de AliBaba Cloud.
It’s been a while since I shared some code samples, so here we go today with a simple series based on MediaPipe. MediaPipe is a great Machine Learning platform with cross-platform and customizable ML solutions. And with Python support!
MediaPipe offers customizable Python solutions as a prebuilt Python package on PyPI, which can be installed simply with pip install mediapipe. It also provides tools for users to build their own solutions. Please see MediaPipe in Python for more info.
MediaPipe in Python
MediaPipe have a HandKeypoints Detector, which includes a Python implementation. The full sample runs as this one
It’s cool, and the trained model returns 2D coordinated for the following points:
From here on, to start the test, 1st I needed to install the mediapipe python dependency:
pip install mediapipe
And I cloned this repo and run the app.py sample to get the output from the previous image.
A lot of knows friends in the main app including camera processing with OpenCV. In next post, I’ll start to dissect and create a custom apps using this.
El equipo de NetCoreConf nos permitió entrar al backstage del evento, y en una esquina del bar (virtual), tuvimos la suerte de hablar de muchos temas interesantes.
Hoy la sorpresa viene de la mano de un gran amigo, con el que compartimos muchas grandes experiencias en eventos por España. Lo interesante del tema, es que Carles nos comparte su visión sobre la participación de alumnos en estos eventos. Como era de esperar, caen un par de anécdotas y nos lo pasamos genial!
Como la grabación ha sido en el bar, desde ya os pido disculpas por la calidad del audio y la improvisación del guion. Como sabéis, la planificación del guion es fundamental en NTN!
A couple of months ago I took a VR Development course in which I got my first glimpse of OpenXR.
What is OpenXR?
Khronos Group launched OpenXR 1.0 last July 2019. OpenXR is an API (Application Programming Interface) that provides high-performance access to XR platforms and devices. Is the interface between an application and an in-process or out-of-process “XR runtime system”.It enables applications and engines, including WebXR, to run on any system that exposes the OpenXR APIs. With this, developers can focus on one build of their VR title and it will ‘just work’ across the entire PC VR ecosystem.
What is Khronos group?
Khronos® Group, is an open consortium of industry-leading companies creating graphics and compute interoperability standards.
Industry Support for OpenXR
The standard is seeing broad support by a wide selection of industry companies and devices including Microsoft’s Mixed Reality headsets, HoloLens 2, Rift, SteamVR, and Quest…
Thanks for the great feedback on this topic. Today, I’ll share a typical Monday Routine for me
Plan my weekly Focus Time and Time Away.
I used to do this manually, now thanks to My Analytics this is just 2 clicks. And, also fairly accurate. You can do this in the My Analytics site, I’m an Outlook person so, in the main Insight panel I access to this 2 options
Plan your time away
Focus Time every day
In example, Focus Time will show the following screen. Here we can automatically schedule 1-2 hours per day to focus. Just click [Book time now] and it will find empty spots in your calendar for this.
This is super awesome, and also super good for our well-being.
Microsoft Research and the importance of breaks and focus time
If someone ask you “Why do you have this Focus time?”, and they expect a more formal answer, this may help. Microsoft Research. They shared a set of articles about the importance of work breaks and “workplace detachment and reattachment” as part of the Microsoft Research group. This information is available here.
If you work with colleagues in different time zones, or you work outside your working hours, you may want to delay the delivery of an email to fit into the appropriate working hours. In example, if try to send a colleague living in Australia, I’ll get a “Delay Delivery” Inline suggestion.
You can even enable this behavior as the default one, in Insight Settings.
So, a simple check and you may save a colleague to read a new email at night or early morning.
BTW, you may avoid emails at all ! more on that on other posts.
I hate back to back meetings, and somehow we live on a remote work scenario where we need to work extra on our Calendar to have a healthy life.
So, when someone ask me what they can do, I always suggest them to enable the [Shorted duration for all events] options in the Office Settings. This is located in [Settings // Calendar // Events and invitations]
You don’t need a deep explanation about how this works:
Need an 1 hr min, the default time will be 50 min.
Need a 30 min, it will be 25 min meeting.
If you also work with time hackers that will fill your calendars with weird meetings starting at 11:25; you may want to avoid them … avoid them !!!
This is a cool feature. It’s just 5 minutes, however, for me, it was the beginning to start to think about how I can avoid burning. I’m still work in progress for that!
SILICON SLOPES, Utah — Pluralsight, Inc. (NASDAQ: PS), the technology workforce development company, today announced that the company is bringing back Free April, allowing 30 days of free access to the Pluralsight Skills platform for individuals and businesses during the month of April.
Here goes a quick Windows 10 tip. I work with several monitors, and from time to time, I lost my mouse. Yes, it sounds silly, but I start to move my mouse all around until I detect the location of the mouse pointer. So, there is a cool way to solve this, enabling a mouse settings, that will show the mouse pointer when you press the CTRL Key.
Enabling this is super easy.
Open Settings // Devices // Mouse
Select Additional Mouse options
In the [Pointer Options] tab, enable the [Show location … ] feature
Sounds familiar, yes?
