Microsoft are collecting feedback from their beloved developers. Here’s how to suggest new features to Visual Studio

In October 2018, we announced that the Developer Community site we have used for reporting issues will work for feature requests in one convenient place.

We have received and responded to over 2500 new feature suggestions on Developer Community with hundreds of those shipped in Visual Studio.

Thank you for making the move and continuing to help us improve the functionality in Visual Studio! Now that feature suggestions are fully up and running on Developer Community, we have taken the final step of the move by turning off the UserVoice forum.

If you have an idea or a request for a feature, you can now use the Suggest a Feature in Developer Community site or Visual Studio and make your suggestions.

programming 1873854 1920 180x180 - JavaScript guide: What is "Currying", how can you use it, and why should you?

JavaScript guide: What is “Currying”, how can you use it, and why should you?

I first learnt about currying 2 years ago. My initial impression was ‘oh, that seems pretty dumb’ and I never used it in any code I wrote for the next two years.

This was because there was a lot of literature on what currying was, but little about when and why you should use it. This blog is about what currying is, but more importantly why you should use it.

In this article I give a short intro into currying and then talk about use cases.

Here’s the new Firefox version, and it’s several orders of magnitude faster than previous ones

Today’s new Firefox release continues to bring fast and private together right at the crossroads of performance and security.

For this latest Firefox release, we adopted the well-known time management strategy of “Procrastinate on purpose.” The result is that Firefox is better at performing tasks at the optimal time.

For today’s release we continue to bring you privacy features and set protections to help you feel safe online when you are with Firefox.

Based on recent testing of this feature in our pre-release channels last month, today’s Firefox release gives you the option to “Flip a switch” in the browser and protect yourself from these nefarious practices.

Firefox 67 is here! Now with dark mode and loads of other functionality tailored for web developers

Firefox 67 is available today, bringing a faster and better JavaScript debugger, support for CSS prefers-color-scheme media queries, and the initial debut of WebRender in stable Firefox.

New in Firefox 67, the prefers-color-scheme media feature allows sites to adapt their styles to match a user’s preference for dark or light color schemes, a choice that’s begun to appear in operating systems like Windows, macOS and Android.

Firefox now defaults to using different profiles for each installed version, making it easier than ever to run multiple copies of Firefox side-by-side.

Firefox 67 better protects your privacy online with new Content Blocking options to avoid known cryptominers and fingerprinters.

hands 600497 1920 180x180 - It's one year since GDPR. Here's what's happened and what haven't happened...

It’s one year since GDPR. Here’s what’s happened and what haven’t happened…

Compliance has been slow, enforcement has been lax, and organizations are finding that learning about data origin, residence and use can be hugely daunting and difficult.

The enforcement of the GDPR is the responsibility of national data protection authorities, together forming the European Data Protection Board, Wigand explained.

“The only company that I’ve seen that’s a big news story as far as GDPR enforcement was that fine that they imposed on Google,” said Matt Hayes, vice president of SAP Business at Attunity, a data management company.

Despite the slow enforcement of the law, many organizations have made changes to their data practices, which has led to structural, technical, and cultural changes within organizations.

Wolfram has their own programming language, and now their pushing for more developers to start using it

Wolfram Research is announcing new efforts to give developers access to its computational programming language, the Wolfram Language.

The company announced the Free Wolfram Engine for Developers, an engine for the Wolfram Language capable of being deployed on any system and called from programs, languages and web services, Wolfram Research explained.

According to Wolfram, the beauty of the language is it enables programmers to express things in a computational way, “It’s not just a language for telling computers what to do. It’s a language that both computers and humans can use to represent computational ways of thinking about things. It’s a language that puts into concrete form a computational view of everything. It’s a language that lets one use the computational paradigm as a framework for formulating and organizing one’s thoughts,” Wolfram wrote in a post.

Python developers can access the Wolfram language through a local Wolfram Engine or Wolfram Cloud.

browser 773215 1920 180x180 - Mozilla are getting a lot stricter about what plugins are allowed to be released for Firefox.

Mozilla are getting a lot stricter about what plugins are allowed to be released for Firefox.

Mozilla is boosting its reputation for protecting internet privacy and security by no longer supporting Firefox add-ons with obfuscated code.

“We will no longer accept extensions that contain obfuscated code. We will continue to allow minified, concatenated, or otherwise machine-generated code as long as the source code is included.”

“If your extension is using obfuscated code, it is essential to submit a new version by June 10th that removes it to avoid having it rejected or blocked.”

Mozilla is accepting feedback on the change in this forum thread. Interested in hearing industry leaders discuss subjects like this? Attend the co-located IoT Tech Expo, Blockchain Expo, AI & Big Data Expo, and Cyber Security & Cloud Expo World Series with upcoming events in Silicon Valley, London, and Amsterdam.
