Buckling-Spring! => IBM Model M

Die Model-M-Tastatur bezeichnet eine Computertastatur-Gattung, die auf die zwischen 1984 und 1999 von IBM millionenfach hergestellte Tastatur „Model M“ zurückgeht.


Die einzige Tatstatur mit Buckling-Spring Mechanik: Model M von Unicomp https://www.pckeyboard.com/

Alle anderen Mechanische Tastaturen arbeiten mit anderen Systemen. Mechanische Tastaturen: https://www.getdigital.de/shop/haushalt/buero/computer-zubehoer-und-hardware/mechanische-tastaturen

Insbesondere die Cherry MX switches erzeugen einen spürbaren „Rückschlag“ beim loslassen… was das original nicht macht.





Patterns for Managing Source Code Branches from Martin Fowler

Like most software patterns, few of them are gold standards that all teams should follow. Software development workflow is very dependent on context, in particular the social structure of the team and the other practices that the team follows.
In thinking about these patterns, I find it useful to develop two main categories. One group looks at integration, how multiple developers combine their work into a coherent whole. The other looks at the path to production, using branching to help manage the route from an integrated code base to a product running in production.


Microsoft ADO.NET driver for SQL Server

Microsoft ADO.NET driver for SQL Server aka the Microsoft.Data.SqlClient GitHub repository.

Microsoft.Data.SqlClient is a data provider for Microsoft SQL Server and Azure SQL Database. Now in General Availability, it is a union of the two System.Data.SqlClient components which live independently in .NET Framework and .NET Core. Going forward, support for new SQL Server features will be implemented in Microsoft.Data.SqlClient



Standalone SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) DevOps Tools

Standalone SSIS DevOps Tools provide a set of executables to do SSIS CICD tasks. Without the dependency on the installation of Visual Studio or SSIS runtime, these executables can be easily integrated with any CICD platform. The executables provided are:

SSISBuild.exe: build SSIS projects in project deployment model or package deployment model.
SSISDeploy.exe: deploy ISPAC files to SSIS catalog, or DTSX files and their dependencies to file system.


ASQA Analysis Services Query Analyzer

Looks a little outdated at first…

Troubleshooting MDX queries can be a complex and time-consuming activity that requires the manual execution of many and repetitive tasks using different tools. Using Analysis Services Query Analyzer, you can forget all the complexities and drastically reduce the time spent to execute your analysis.


Analysis Services Query Analyzer (ASQA) is a complete FREE tool distributed under the MIT license and its source code is published on GitHub https://github.com/SSASQueryAnalyzer/SSASQueryAnalyzer

MDX Studio

MDX Studio is a tool that was developed by Mosha Pasumansky, a former Analysis Services developer.
This tool is invaluable when writing a MDX query: you have a code formatting feature, an embedded system to analyze query performance and many other features for writing MDX queries.

Unfortunately, the source code is not publicly available and the project is currently no longer being updated by Mosha. Other contributors made an effort to keep the tool compatible with newer versions of Analysis Services and client connection libraries.
