To download any JRE or JDK from the Oracle download page without signing in, go to the downloads page for the version you want (such as https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/javase-downloads.html) and click on the Download link of your choice.

When a window pops up saying you need to accept the license agreement, check the box that says you agree. But instead of clicking on the green Download link (which will send you to the login page), right-click the download link and select Copy Link Location.
NOTE: If clicking Download doesn’t show a box and takes you straight to the login page instead, you will need to clear your cookies on the Java website (or open in incognito mode). Paste the copied link into a text editor like Notepad. You’ll see the link points to something like oracle.com/webapps/redirect/signon, but it has a query attached that starts with „nexturl=“. The URL that follows nexturl= is the actual link that will download the file to your computer.

If you want to download any JRE or JDK without signing into Oracle, go to the downloads page for the version you want (such as https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/jdk12-downloads.html) and right-click on the Download link of your choice. Select „Copy Link Location“ and then paste it into a text editor like Notepad.
NOTE: you may need to change the otn in the path to otn-pub as described below.

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.

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_Model_M

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

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.

https://ssasqueryanalyzer.github.io/

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.
