#Windows10 – Mouse without borders, a #MustHave if you work with 2 or more computers

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi!

Somehow, I didn’t know this one, shame on me!

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.

Thanks to 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 features.

Official Description

Mouse without Borders is a product that makes you the captain of your computer fleet by allowing you to control up to four computers from a single mouse and keyboard. This means that with Mouse without Borders you can copy text or drag and drop files across computers.

Hi !

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.

As usual, here are the Slides I used

And some tweets and resources

Happy coding!

[Xamarin.Forms] Nuevo CarouselView!

Javier Suárez | Blog

Introducción

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.

Nuevo Carousel!

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:

Forms.SetFlags("CarouselView_Experimental");

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…

Quality and Agility linked by Processes

What makes an organization great is often its people, culture and its uniqueness.

Quality, is about the Customer. It is everything that builds customer satisfaction. It is what the Customer can find in our product and services and not what we are putting inside them.

The most difficult thing of working with people is to achieve the exact point at which all these items (estimation, costs, expectations, etc), are clear to each of those involved. The human being is unique, so it is normal to say that we all have different perceptions of things, even speaking the same language. How can we make sure we are delivering to our customer what they are expecting from us?

If we do not deliver what our customer needed, “Blame the process, not the people”

Often, the words “process” and “procedure” are used synonymously to describe how something needs to be done. However, when…

#Event – Building an Anomaly Detector System with a few or no lines of code at @MSFTReactor

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

Microsoft opened a brand new Microsoft Reactor in Toronto, and I’m lucky enough to host a AI session about Anomaly Detection. Below are the details

Detecting anomalies is a common scenario which can be applied to dozens of industries. From the analysis of power consumption, medical data, or even analysis of personal information, anomalies can be detected based on historical data.

During this workshop, Bruno will guide attendees to code a complete system that will detect anomalies: you will train a model based on historical data, and later use the same model with new data to identify anomalies. At the end of the workshop, attendees will review a new set of options to create an Anomaly Detection System without a single line of code!

Please bring a laptop or other personal device to participate in this hands-on workshop.

Happy Coding!

#CustomVision – Label Images with suggested tags. Cool update for my #MSIgnite sessions

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi!

I’m updating some of my demos for Microsoft Ignite and I found an amazing new feature in Custom Vision: Suggested Tags (see references). This feature is super useful in scenarios for automatic detection, like the parking lot demo. I’ll use the official documentation to describe this feature

When you tag images for a Custom Vision model, the service uses the latest trained iteration of the model to predict the labels of untagged images. It then shows these predictions as suggested tags, based on the selected confidence threshold and prediction uncertainty. You can then either confirm or change the suggestions, speeding up the process of manually tagging the images for training.

Label images faster with suggested tags

And, as usual, let’s use 2 images to describe this. Once I add a new image to my Custom Vision project, I can start to select object and tag them. However, if I already trained my project, I will also see the [Suggested object on] option.

Custom Vision select objects and apply tags

With the default threshold value of 66%, the auto label feature does not detect any area. However, if I low the level, in example to 28%, it will automatically detect one of the parking slots: Slot 3. Once I’m happy with the suggested objects, I can confirm these objects and that’s it! Super easy.

Custom Vision enable suggested objects and low threshold

This feature is amazing, and I’m looking forward to using it in real projects to see how much time saves in image labeling scenarios.

Bonus: Below you can see the before and after of the demo project. My daughter also decorated the new parking lot box, with some IronMan content. I’ll need to figure out how to connect this with my session speech!

Happy coding!

#Lego – Lego Replay, donate your bricks! #AmazingIdea

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi!

Short post today, however I think is the best one I’ve wrote in a while. That’s because, Lego has created a new amazing campaign where they help you to donate your old Lego bricks, for people who may not have access to Lego bricks.

The name of the campaign is LEGO Replay. And the main idea behind this, is to make it simple:

  • Put together all those loose LEGO pieces, that you may have (I know we have a lot!)
  • Place them into a cardboard box
  •  Visit the LEGO Replay website https://www.lego.com/replay
  • Print out a free shipping label
  • And send the box, via UPS or FedEx

Amazing!

As usual, a 60 seconds video is the best way to understand this

Happy coding!
