Apprentice Finale

I was hoping for Street Smarts - but honestly, neither of these two are capable of the job. (no link, no nothing!!!!)
 
I have to say - both teams were sh*t - and Kendra did the job required. Tana couldn't do it - I actually thought she could.
 
ANd now watching the episode, OMIGOD!!!! Both of these two have no place in any organization (after watching them for the past 14 weeks) but Kendra definitely did win the job.
 
Good job.

Kendra rode under the curtains as George stated, but she got exposed for what a little snotty nose snake in the grass she can really be. The car discription book would never had been exposed if not for Tara. The Little sweet Kendra is a pro at doing this, and she showed her colors. I was shocked that Trump dismissed this underhanded action..or maybe he is just too high on his own ego to realize that its a human error we all posess...about making remarks about goof offs. Wake Up Donald...Didn't you have enough of that kind of under handed work with Katie Curic at your last wedding?

Just goes to show you, Donald is all about education and not experience. To hire an undermining, snooty girl like Kendra...I hope it falls right back in his lap. I love the show, but you knew from day one that he was going to hire the one with the education. Did he just put the street mart people on there to make him look good.....what a joke...we all know what the real Trump is all about....education, education, education.... Tana had the business know how, the personality and the drive to do a good job....all 14 weeks she got along well with everyone, no arguments, no fights, unkike Kendra who made eniemies from day one.....wake up Donald....you hired a woman finally, but again...education is all your looking at....

So Tana thought of the "circle." Who did all the work while her teammates were sleeping? I don't think Trump picked Kendra because of her education. Kendra was just plain better.

Well, that explains CodePlex...

In a move that will be sure to anger open source (or rather anti-paid software, anti-Microsoft open source)  zealots, Microsoft is planning to buy GitHub.

A year ago, I mused about why Microsoft would shut down CodePlex and how the world needs competing source code repositories to be strong. I'm not the only one per this Slashdot article :
"...people have warned about GitHub becoming as large as it did as problematic because it concentrates too much of the power to make or break the open source world in a single entity, moreso because there were valid questions about GitHubs financial viability...." - Jacques Mattheij

I will be interested in seeing this play out - whether developers jump ship or not. Have all the efforts Microsoft has made in pushing towards open source be seen as genuine or will all the zealots jump ship or maybe even attack?

Microsoft's comment about why they shut down CodePlex referred to how spammers were using CodePlex. Well, GitHub has its own …

FoxInCloud Stats

FoxInCloud sent this link a while back about their statistics regarding visits to their site:

http://foxincloud.com/blog/2017/12/27/VFP-community-lessons-from-foxincloud-site.html



What's interesting here is the breakdown of people. Yes, I think it's understandable that the Fox community is getting older.

Another factor is the growth of the mobile and web environments taking over development. These environments really do push people towards the newer non-SQL or free SQL/hosted environments but more towards hosted storage options like Amazon and Google. A tool like FoxInCloud that helps MOVE existing applications to the cloud inherently competes with those environments.

But FoxInCloud also allows developers to extend their application further by giving them a starting point using Javascript and the basic CSS (such as Bootstrap). If you're not rebuilding your application from scratch, it's certainly a great step forward.

The World of Updates Today

I just received an update for Office 365. It certainly includes some cool features - including starting in one environment and picking it up in another environment. In recent years, I've certainly enjoined the use of Continuity on a Mac and in fact, I feel spoiled being able to start a message in one environment (even Google) and then finish it off on another.  This has become some pervasive when we were reviewing our most recent backlog at a client site, a similar feature was added to the current workload.

But with web applications, the trend is to reduce the amount of software on a client machine. I used to have automatic backup for all of my machines (thanks Carbonite!) but these days, many of my machines don't need anything beyond the core OS and some basic applications. Certainly that's the feeling with Chromebooks and even the lightweight aspect of many iOS apps. The functionality is mostly in the cloud.

When you upgrade your system, you expect it to a big update. So…
