The web is at the heart of many modern business applications. We use browsers as the universal interface for our services, wrapping them in familiar HTML and JavaScript.
If yoursquo;ve got an internet connection and a browser, yoursquo;ve got access to an application, whether on your PC or on your smartphone.But what if you need access to more than the keyboard and the mouse, such as using cameras or other device hardware in your code?[ Only at InfoWorld: What you need to know about progressive web apps. | Get your websites up to speed with HTML5 today using the techniques in InfoWorldrsquo;s HTML5 Deep Dive PDF how-to report. | Learn where HTML5 is headed next. ]Thatrsquo;s where the next iteration of the web comes in to play, the progressive web app. Progressive web apps originated at Google, with a focus on the mobile web and the prospect of being able to deliver web apps that can work offline. With cross-platform support a key deliverable, itrsquo;s an important shift, one that goes further than Microsoftrsquo;s existing hosted web apps.

Build a progressive web app for Android, and it should work on a future release of Windows 10.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Elasticsearch is an open source, cross-platform, highly scalable distributed search and analytics engine based on Apache Lucene. Lucene is a popular Java-based, full-text search engine that can be used to query large sets of data efficiently.
In this article, wersquo;ll discuss the capabilities of Elasticsearch and how we can work with it in .Net using the popular .Net client for Elasticsearch called NEST. Elasticsearch gives you web-friendly REST APIs that exchange data in JSON format.

Thus you can take advantage of Elasticsearch from your .Net application to store, search, and analyze large volumes of data in real time.

Because Elasticsearch is customizable, you can use it to build our own custom search engine quite easily.

There are plenty of plug-ins available to help you do this.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Continuing trend suggests Sony simply doesn't want to link up with Microsoft.
In Q2 2017, the average share of spam in global email traffic amounted to 56.97%, which was only 1.07 p.p. more than in the previous quarter. One of the most notable events of this quarter – the WannaCry epidemic – did not go unnoticed by spammers: numerous mass mailings contained offers of assistance in combating the ransomware.
Microsoftrsquo;s .Net development platform has been around a long time now as the heart of the companyrsquo;s development tool and platform strategy. Having begun life as a Windows-only tool that brought new languages and methodologies to the platform, itrsquo;s grown to become a cross-platform environment that supports everything from wearables to walls and on into the cloud..Net has long had cross-platform ambitions, starting with the release of the educational Rotor runtime and tools back in 2002 under a noncommercial shared-source license, and continuing with its sadly undelivered plans for the cross-platform WP/E, the .Net runtime that became Silverlight.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Microsoftrsquo;s .Net Core 2.0, an upgrade to the companyrsquo;s open source, cross-platform implementation of .Net, is becoming available today.

The new release includes improvements intended to make .Net Core easier to use.
It also conforms to the .Net Standard 2.0 specification designed to facilitate code sharing among .Net Framework, .Net Core, and Xamarin.Thenbsp;.Net Core frameworknbsp;can be used to build web applications and services that run on Windows, MacOS, or Linux.

Ease of use improvements in .Net Core 2.0 include making the dotnet restore command (used to install project dependencies and other tasks) implicit for commands like run, build, and publish that require it.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Microsoft is working to address some of the current limitations of enterprise blockchain with a new cross-platform framework designed to make it more scalable, governable and confidential.
Microsoftrsquo;s Visual Studio has long been a heavyweight Windows-only development environment.

But it has evolved over the years to support cross-platform, web, and mobile development, adding more and more features.

For a giant, it moves fast, but it remains focused on building large-scale Windows applications for client PCs and for servers, whether on-premises or in the cloud.Thatrsquo;s all very well for many developers, but therersquo;s a substantial number of developers today using a new generation of programming editors to write web and microservices code.

Tools like GitHubrsquo;s Atom epitomize this trend, along with MacOS-only tools that have spurred a shift thatrsquo;s led to row after row of glowing Apple logos in the seats at technology conferences.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
JetBrainsrsquo;s Rider, a cross-platform IDE that could serve as a rival to Microsoftrsquo;s own well-established Visual Studio IDE, is now generally available.The commercially licensed Rider can be used on Windows, MacOS, and Linux systems, letting developers build applications based on ASP.Net, .Net Core, .Net Framework, Xamarin, or Unity. Rider puts JetBrainsrsquo; ReSharper .Net support in the shell of the companyrsquo;s IntelliJ Idea IDE and adds the WebStorm JavaScript IDE and DataGrip database management tool. ReSharper previously was packaged as a Visual Studio extension for code analysis and instant fixes.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
We recently reported about SambaCry, a new family of Linux Trojans exploiting a vulnerability in the Samba protocol.

A week later, Kaspersky Lab analysts managed to detect a malicious program for Windows that was apparently created by the same group responsible for SambaCry.
The next version of Microsoftrsquo;s open source, cross-platform version of the .Net software platform, .Net Core 2.0, will bring profile-guided optimization (PGO) to Linux x64. PGO is native compilation technology used by the C++ compiler to generate faster-running code. PGO features a two-step process, including a training run that records information about execution and a build step that uses the results of the training run to generate better optimized code, Microsoftrsquo;s Bertrand Le Roy and Daniel Podder explained in a blog post.

The .Net Core 2.0 upgrade will add PGO optimizations to .Net Core on both the Windows x86 and Linux x64 platforms. PGO began working with Windows x64 in the .Net Core 1.1 release and it has been used in the Windows-based .Net Framework for years.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
