The adoption of cloud computing has quickly become a key driving force for businesses today. Selecting one cloud over comes down to the wants and needs of each individual customer and the workloads they are running. It is often the case that organizations will use multiple providers within different parts of their operations, or for different use cases, which is called a multi-cloud approach.
However, there are a number of differentiating factors that separate the approaches of the three most known firms (Azure, AWS & Google), which can help end users consider which is right for them. These Platform offer largely similar basic capabilities around flexible compute, storage and networking. They all share the common elements of a public cloud: self-service and instant provisioning, auto-scaling, plus security, compliance and identity management features.
A lot of customers have servers running in their private data centers, in their offices, or…

Today we had the opportunity to be part of the Agile Cordoba event. We did not talk about what we’ve done, but instead we talked about where we’re going and what we’re doing to get there.
We shared some technology trends and how we’re doing research for the future and innovation hinges on seeing things differently.
In this opportunity we are going to give you perspective on how we approach innovation with Microsoft technologies, we will cover other companies like Amazon and Google in the future. It is super important for us to make sure that we’re making that available to everyone at 3XM Group because we believe the next breakthroughs are going to come from every technology providers.
We believe technology must be developed responsibly in a way that earns trust, which is why we are now investing time on research and innovation.
The new Windows Terminal was announced at Build this year and has been available (building from source code yourself) through the Microsoft/Terminal GitHub repo. A very early preview of the Windows Terminal is now available through the Microsoft Store (link). I haven’t verified but I believe you’ll need a few prerequisites in order to install. Out of the box the current preview of Windows Terminal offers:
PowerShell Core (v6)
Windows PowerShell (v5)
CMD (command prompt)
WSL (Windows Sub-system for Linux, legacy console)
After installing the Windows Terminal from the Microsoft Store, open the Settings from the dropdown menu (or click “Ctrl + ,”).
Find the “profiles” element in the settings file and add the following JSON snippet to the array. Verify the “commandline” and “icon” locations match…
I was reviewing my slides for Microsoft Slides, and I remembered that Melissa Hubbart (@melihubb) was tweeting about checking your slides previous to the event.
decided to give it a try. And, it was my time to check what’s new with the Accessibility
Feature in PowerPoint. There are several ways to use this feature. If you want
to check the content of the current slide, in the Review menu, there is an
option to check the current slide.
If you want to check the complete PowerPoint File, in the menu [File / Info / Inspect Presentation] there is an option named [Check Accessibility] to do this.
Once the Accessibility Checker panel is open, we can review all the issues.
There are organized by severity levels (errors, warning and tips). And we can find common scenarios like
Missing alternative text for images and shapes
Missing title slides
feature here, when working with pictures, is that we can leverage the power of
Artificial Intelligence to automatically describe de content of the pictures.
In the following image we can see how it automatically recognizes my cat Goku
lying on a bed.
So, you know, please check the Accessibility of your files and Happy Coding!
Next week I’ll be at Microsoft Ignite 2019, and I’m very excited. I’ll have 2 sessions (see below), and I’m also excited for the networking opportunities and for some amazing sessions.
My Sessions at Ignite
is more, much more! Living in tech as a Latino who can’t dance
I was born
and raised in Argentina, then I lived eleven years in Spain working all around
Europe. Finally, three years ago I moved to Canada. And yes, my Latin
background impacted my professional career.
session is mostly sharing what I’ve learned during these past years. How I
learned to get the most from sentences like “You have a very strong accent; I
don’t think you will fit this meeting. These are Senior Executives” or “Wow,
your accent is amazing, our leadership team will love it!” In both scenarios, I
manage to move from frustration or surprise to “let’s focus on our business.”
not only about language and accent; family, culture, and even food and drinks
are a part of the story. Espero que nos veamos en la sesion!
How a PoC
at home can scale to enterprise level using custom vision APIs
started with a DIY project to use computer vision for security cameras at home.
A custom machine learning model is the core component used to analyze pictures
to detect people, animals, and more in a house environment. The AI processing
is performed at the edge, in dedicated hardware and the collected information
is stored in the cloud. The same idea can be applied to several CCTV scenarios,
like parking lots, train stations, malls, and more. However, moving this into
enterprise scale brings a set of challenges, which are described and explained
in this session.
If you work
with 2 computers, is a must have. In example, at home I have a power gaming computer
for AI and Mixed Reality. I work with 2 monitors, my ergonomic Microsoft keyboard
and my Logitech MX Master 2S mouse. I perform most of the work on my main
computer, however from time to time, I need to switch to my laptop.
the Microsoft Garage team, in 10 minutes I can easily share my mouse and
keyboard from my main computer to my laptop just moving the mouse between
desktops. As a bonus, I can also share clipboard, and tons of other amazing

Somehow, I forgot to share this. I was at the hack4heritage during the weekend, and it was awesome. I meet some amazing people and I also have the chance to see the results of 3 days of work of 6 groups, who worked on great ideas on Unity focused on Heritage preservation.
Con el lanzamiento de Xamarin.Forms 4.3 nos llegan una gran variedad de novedades: CarouselView, RefreshView, HTML en Label, etc. Es un buen momento para profundizar en el uso de CarouselView.
El CarouselView permite mostrar una colección donde se pueden desplazar los elementos haciendo deslizamientos (gestos de Swipe).
CarouselView está disponible en Xamarin. forms 4.3. Sin embargo, actualmente esta en fase experimental y solo se puede usar agregando la siguiente línea de código a la clase AppDelegate en iOS, o bien a la clase MainActivity en Android, antes de llamar a Forms.Init:
NOTA: El CarouselView esta disponible para Android, iOS y UWP.
Una parte muy interesante del nuevo CarouselView es que su implementación esta basada en CollectionView (se reutiliza una cantidad considerable de código). Sin embargo, los controles tienen casos de uso bastante diferentes. CollectionView se suele usar para mostrar un listado de datos, mientras que…
