Microsoft HoloLens

Back in 2010 I was getting ready to build an app for Windows Phone. I did publish the app to the Windows Store Bike Stations, great learning exercise.

Now I’m getting ready to build some Microsoft HoloLens apps.

Checklist:

  • Received confirmation: Wave 2  – probably the invitation to buy will be around June/July 2016
  • Updated Visual Studio 2015 Update 2
  • Installed the HoloLens emulator
  • Compiled HelloHoloWorld app

In the following days I’ll go through the Galaxy Explorer source code to grab some ideas.

Connect VS2010 to TFS 11 express

Today I had a little issue trying to create a new project from VS2010 to my just recently installed TFS 11 express :

I confirmed in security manager that I had all access possible….

To fix it I installed Team Explorer for Microsoft Visual Studio 11 Beta  from here

It installed the VS 2011 beta shell, from here Team Explorer works as expected and a new project can be created:

Once the new project was in place all expected task from VS2010 are available, like to create tasks, bugs, define builds, etc.

All expected items are available from the Web site:

 

Next post,   where are all those fancy graphs?   [maybe express version has only source control]

Civ 5 – Riddle of the Sphinx (77/140)

77. Riddle of the Sphinx. Rush a wonder as Egypt with a Great Engineer.



To get this you need a great engineer, the fastest way to get one born in your capital is to build the Pyramids and/or Stonehenge, a great engineer will born by turn 70. Use this engineer to hurry a wonder to unlock the achievement.
