When Visual Studio and Visual Studio for MacOS are truly merged…


Posted on March 18, 2018 by

The file close context command will be unified.

On Visual Studio, right click on a file tab, “Close All But This.”

On Visual Studio for MacOS, also known as Xamarin Studio, select a file tab, and the context menu is “Close Others.”

Just realigning that bit tells me that Microsoft is serious about merging the tool.

Microsoft Build Conference 2017 – The Cloud Logo


Posted on May 23, 2017 by

I had a good spot for the 2017 Microsoft Professional Developer’s conference Keynote. I was at the head of the class. I could not help but notice something while Scott Guthrie was speaking. ¬† He has the Microsoft Cloud logo behind him. ¬†Specifically it is in the shape of what I have seen as the Microsoft Hybrid Cloud.

Since I am at the front, it is easier for me to watch Scott talk on the monitor.

I can’t help but notice that the cloud is a bit jagged at the bottom.

It gets me to wondering. Apple has the “Golden Ratio” designed into their cloud logo for iCloud. I wonder what the design guidelines are for the Microsoft Cloud logos. There seems to be a few of them.
