Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) is the only comprehensive cloud solution that natively protects corporate data on the device itself and beyond with four layers of protection across identities, devices, apps, and data. EMS helps you solve one of the key challenges in the mobile-first, cloud-first world – how to provide a comprehensive set of tools within Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) that will help you with the following:
- Advanced user lifecycle management
- Low IT overhead and cost
- Monitor your identity bridge

For the purpose of this post, consider prototyping a simple stock buying widget. The stock price will change randomly and based upon the current stock price and our minimum buy price (that the user will input) a ‘Buy Stock’ button will light up or not as the case may be. This is as simple as possible a demonstration as I could imagine but you’ll hopefully appreciate the principle. What this widget does will not be important so much as the way it is doing it.
Clean code architecture dictates that we should program against clean interfaces and the various layers that exist in our application should communicate with each other trough interfaces so there is separation of concerns and the one layer is decoupled from the other. In other words we need to have low coupling between the layers.

To help solve the cross-platform problem, Xamarin has produced Xamarin.Forms and added this product to the list of tools for developers. Xamarin.Forms is a cross-platform API that maps to device-specific APIs. This article will delve into an examination of Xamarin.Forms with an application that I had to write for our startup and how well it meets several requirements:
- How well does it display on a platform? How much platform-specific code is necessary? Does the application “look” like a native platform?
- When a developer has to resort to native API calls, how easy is it? Can it be done? Does it work?
- When something else has to happen, how much third-party support is there?

The Current D/L method is a statistical method invented by statisticians Frank Duckworth and Tony Lewis. It is designed to calculate the target score (or the PAR score) that the second batting team (in a rain-interrupted match) needs to achieve. Today, there are two D/L models/editions that are available to the cricket community: Standard Edition and Professional Edition. The Standard Edition is a chart-based model used for non-ICC match and local matches. The Professional Edition is a software-based black box model, and is used by the ICC for all official matches.
