Today, we are excited to announce the General Availability of Azure DNS. As a global service, it is available for use in all public Azure regions.
We announced the Public Preview of Azure DNS at the Ignite conference in May of last year. Since then the service has been used by thousands of customers, whose valuable feedback has helped drive engineering improvements and to mature the service.
With this announcement, Azure DNS can now be used for production workloads. It is supported via Azure Support, and is backed by a 99.99% availability SLA.
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?
If your app communicates with a web application, information returned from the server is often formatted as JSON. You can use the Foundation framework’s JSONSerialization class to convert JSON into Swift data types like Dictionary , Array , String , Number , and Bool . However, because you can’t be sure of the structure or values of JSON your app receives, it can be challenging to deserialize model objects correctly. This post describes a few approaches you can take when working with JSON in your apps.
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.
