#RaspberryPi – Microsoft Teams available on #linux, and this is the right way to install it

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi!

I’ve using Microsoft Teams in Windows 10 and MacOS and the experience is amazing. When I was trying to work only in my Raspberry Pi 4, having a native app was something I missed a lot. I mean, Microsoft Team web version is fine, however the desktop experience is much better.

And now, Microsoft announced that there is a Linux version of Microsoft Team, so I’m trying to manage my schedule during the next couple of days to test this in Raspbian in my Raspberry Pi 4.

We can download the native Linux packages in .deb and .rpm formats from https://teams.microsoft.com/downloads#allDevicesSection. Very cool to see all the available options

And I’m looking forward to check authentication, integrated services and more!

Happy coding!

Greetings @ Toronto

Artificial Intelligence – AI and the economic growth opportunities.

78539208_10159084458350898_3793392141770686464_o

After attending to the Microsoft AI Tour in Argentina last November 4th, I really believe that the world is beginning to move through a new industrial revolution in which we include Artificial Intelligence as part of our management solutions. We are talking about using AI in solutions that help us manage business processes. Most applications and processes can be reinvented with AI, adopt completely new approaches to the horizontal and vertical processes of the organization, managing to elevate, maximize and bring new capabilities to our human ingenuity.

How do we apply AI to transform and manage the business processes we have in our organizations differently?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the way we produce, consume, market and work. Even though there is still too much mysticism and lack of knowledge for the application of it. We may see this new era as something abstract, without really knowing the applications that…

    Sat 11:00 AM — 30 min
  • "Cybertelligence": Using AI to Fight the Dangers of Cyber Threats

    Cyber threats are considered the top priorities for businesses nowadays, with Cybersecurity Ventures predicts cybercrime will cost the world in excess of $6 trillion annually by 2021 (up from $3 trillion in 2015), the challenge becomes bigger and the human resources to fight the threats are not catching up. The need of AI based automated cybersecurity solutions that will help human cybersecurity experts in this battle is becoming more of a necessity than complimentary. This talk will concentrateon the role of AI in fighting cyber crimes.

    Topics:

  • "EthicalAIze": Developing Ethical AI Algorithms

    AI is definitely the new buzz in the tech world. Everybody wants it, everybody's using it (even unknowingly). AI solved a lot of issues and changed our lives for better, but, years into experiencing AI we know now that there is a downside of using it. Mostly an ethical one. So, do we drop the whole "AI thing"? Keep it as it is and accept the downside? Or proceed with caution? This is what this session is trying to highlight.

    Topics:
    1- AI Ethics: Why important? Why Now?
    2- The dilemma and the major issues.
    3- Machine Biases (the goo, the bad and the ugly)

[Xamarin.Forms] Soporte a Gifs

Javier Suárez | Blog

Introducción

Desde los inicios de Xamarin.Forms se contaba con soporte para diferentes formatos de imagen. Con la llegada de nuevas versiones llegaron nuevas opciones como FontImageSource.

Con Xamarin.Forms 4.4 llega el soporte al formato gif y animaciones.

Soporte al formato gif

El uso de gif en Xamarin.Forms no implica grandes cambios en API o nuevos conceptos a aprender. Al igual que usamos la propiedad Source de Image con diferentes formatos de imagen (png, jpg, etc.), podemos usar gifs:

var gifImage = new Image
{
     Source = "awesome.gif"
};

NOTA: La funcionalidad completa relacionada con gifs en Android esta incluido usando FastRenderers (usados hoy día por defecto). Sin usar Fast Renderers (UseLegacyRenderers), el gif se renderizará pero la animación no funcionará.

Soporte a gifs

La novedad incluida relacionada con gifs viene a permitir controlar la animación del mismo. Contamos con la propiedad IsAnimationPlaying de tipo bool para indicar si el…

[Xamarin.Forms] IndicatorView

Another great one from one of my prefered Xamarin friends !

Javier Suárez | Blog

Introducción

Recientemente recibíamos en Xamarin.Forms un nuevo CarouselView. El CarouselView permite mostrar una colección donde se pueden desplazar los elementos haciendo deslizamientos (gestos de Swipe). A pesar de contar con diferentes opciones para gestionar el layout, orientación, espaciado, etc. una de las peticiones más habituales a la hora de trabajar con el nuevo Carousel es poder mostrar un indicador con el número de elementos y la posición.

Indicador de posición

Llega en Xamarin.Forms 4.4 un nuevo control, IndicatorView, que tiene como objetivo permitir mostrar el número de elementos y la posición del elemento actual.

IndicatorView

IndicatorView sale en forma de Preview y para poder usarlo en estos momentos es necesario usar la etiqueta IndicatorView_Preview.

Xamarin.Forms.Forms.SetFlags("IndicatorView_Experimental");

IndicatorView nos permite mostrar un indicador de posición de diferentes formas, bien usando una forma sencilla o incluso usando una plantilla personalizada…

#Windows10 – How to Install Connect app (yes, somehow is not part of my Windows 10 installation)

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi!

I’ve been using the Connect App for several years. It’s super useful when you need to share your Android screen to your Windows device, or any other device sharing screen scenario.

However, today I realized that I don’t have my Connect app installed in my Windows 10

no connect app

I don’t know why, maybe one of the Insider Builds remove the App, or any other crazy ideas. Moving on, I put my focus to figure out how to install this app. I really need it!

There is not much information about how to install this, but I found that I had the [Projecting to this PC] feature in Windows 10. Which was disabled for me.

windows 10 settings projecting to this pc

So, browsing the additional features, I found [Wireless Display]. That should be the one:

windows 10 add wireless display feature to w10

Warning, after the install time, is also REBOOT time! Windows being Windows.

windows 10 installing wireless display

And, now I had the connect App up and running to rock some Hololens demos

windows 10 connect app as new app

Happy coding!

[Material] Monkey Conf 2019

Javier Suárez | Blog

El evento

En España tenemos una gran comunidad Xamarin y con la idea de contar con un evento de desarrollo relacionado con Xamarin de gran tamaño, el año pasado nacía la Monkey Conf. Ante el buen recibimiento, no podía más que hacer lo posible para volver este año con más contenido, mayor tamaño y más sorpresas.

El pasado 30 de Noviembre, celebramos la Monkey Conf 2019. A continuación, una pequeña galería del evento:

Fue un día lleno de sesiones técnicas de calidad. Es increíble ver sesiones donde se dan consejos de distribución y venta de apps basadas en la experiencia real con consejos de arquitectura de código. Esto demuestra el nivel y madurez de la comunidad Xamarin. Desde el inicio hasta el final, donde no podía faltar “el preguntón” (gracias a MFractor y SyncFusion por facilitarnos licencias) el día fluyo de forma natural, sin problemas. Muchas gracias a…
