Previously I have published statistics about #fsharp twitter hashtag. This one is based on the tweets that I collected throughout the whole 2013 year. Every week while working on the F# weekly I have downloaded all tweets with hashtag #fsharp and pushed them to my local MongoDB. I managed to collect about 24000 tweets from more than 3000 twitter users.
The first picture on the top of this page is based on total twitter activity around #fsharp hashtag. The size of twitter names depends on sum number of people tweets and retweets. Other charts are self descriptive. Thank you guys for your effort, let’s make 2014 even better.
Communicating without having to thinking about translation is a big step forward for communication, says Takako Aikawa, program manager on MSR’s Machine Translation Team. “The notion of being language-agnostic is essential for global communication, and that’s the beauty of this translator,” Aikawa says. “The goal is to let everyone communicate in their own language, and make every language – and every person – equal.”
Lin Li, senior test engineer for the Lync team and a researcher on language learning, sees Conversation Translator as a groundbreaking initiative at Microsoft. She believes that as social features become more prevalent in Microsoft products, translation will become ever more important.
“Global economic development brings language diversity and translation to the forefront, and as worldwide …

Some days ago, I was faced with the task of developing Dropbox connector that should be able to enumerate and download files from Dropbox. The ideal case for me is a wrapper library for .NET 3.5 with an ability to authorize in Dropbox without user interaction. This is a list of .NET libraries/components that are currently available:
- DropNet (NuGet package)
- SharpBox (NuGet package)
- Spring.NET Social Dropbox
- Xamarin Dropbox Sync component.
Sprint.NET and Xamarin component are not my options for now. DropNet also does not fit my needs, because it is .NET 4+ only. But if your application is for .NET 4+, then DropNet should be the best choice for you. I chose SharpBox, it looks like a dead project – no commits since 2011, but nevertheless the latest version is available on NuGet.
At the beginning, you need to go to Dropbox App Console and create a new app. Click on “Create app” button and answer to the questions like in the picture below.

I will endeavour to write a few more but these should give you a sense of the question format and what the exam is looking for in terms of the ranked answers
