The .NET Framework, Task Parallel Library (TPL), introduced with version 4, can significantly increase processing performance by using all available cores on the host computer more efficiently. With the typical execution model, a task, which is a unit of work, executes sequentially on a single CPU core.

With the impending release of both the online and on-premises Dynamics 365 updates, it’s time to start getting hyped for the new functionality heading our way. However, the on-premises release won’t match the online release, feature-for-feature, which is how Microsoft has been handling the updates for years. To get a sense for what you will and will not be able to use, there's an FAQ that covers the major differences.
I was working in SharePoint and had an issue where a Managed Metadata database was showing a status of "Database is too old and upgrade is required."
I found a post that outlined how to fix a similar issue for a BDC database. The command in question was:
Recently, I was working on an implementation of a Kendo Grid. We decided that we wanted to be able to save the filters that a user had added, so that the next time they visited, the same filters would automatically be applied to the grid. Kendo has a pretty good sample of persisting the entire grid state in their forums (this can include the columns, page, pagesize, sorting, filtering, etc.).
Being able to group data into batches can be quite useful and often done for reporting purposes, but I found it handy to group a series of multiple choice questions and answers for displaying a given tester. In this case, it was for a quiz that asked the capital of a given state with four possible answers provided for each question (see Figure 2). The data was in a SQL Server database table, but it could have been retrieved via a service or a text file.
One problem that users have been facing since CRM 2011 is the discrepancy between what they see in the Activity Associated View for a record and an Activities subgrid included on the form. Someone may log a Phone Call with an Account or Contact as a recipient, but reference a Case in the Regarding field. In this instance, they’ll be able to find it in the Activity Associated View:
One of the things I typically do when working with a load script in QlikView is to assign a variable to the file path to my QVD files. That way, if the path changes, I only have to update it in one place instead of multiple places throughout the script. It usually looks something like this:
Cookies are one of the many options available for state management in ASP.NET. A cookie is a small file on a client file-system that can be stored or retrieved from a browser session. These can be used for many things, but frequently are used to maintain a user session after the browser has closed – this comes into play with those “Remember Me?” checkboxes on log-in screens. When a user checks the box, they are usually consenting to have a cookie placed on their system.
Publishing reports under the workspace of a username works great when only one person is in charge of managing it. Unfortunately, PowerBI doesn’t allow us to give other users edit privileges on those reports, which limits effective collaboration with the rest of the team.
Fortunately, PowerBI gives us the option to create groups which come with the ability to fine-tune permissions for other users. This feature requires a Power BI Pro license and is not available in the free version.
