Installing A Java JDK On Beta Versions Of OS X

Open the installation DMG and expand the package so we can edit objects inside the package, done with pkgutil:
pkgutil —expand “/Volumes/JDK 7 Update 67/JDK 7 Update 67.pkg” “/tmp/JDKTEMP.flat”
Next, we’re going to edit that Distribution file, which is what’s checking the OS version, using vi:
vi /tmp/JDKTEMP.flat/Dstribution
Then we’re going to look for the OS version (currently 10.7) in the pm_install section:
Edit OS version to 10.10
Then let’s save the file and then flatten the package, again using pkgutil:
pkgutil —flatten “/tmp/JDKNEW.flat” “/tmp/JDK7.pkg”
Finally fire up the package:
open /tmp/JDK7.pkg
And of course, finish running the installer. Good luck!

Flipping the classroom with Office Mix: small step...

Today’s post was written by Stephen Crapnell, high school Mathematics teacher and Head of eLearning at All Hallows’ School in Brisbane, Australia
When discussing with a class of senior mathematics students how we could more effectively use the precious class time we have, one student jokingly responded by saying she needs me there at night when she is grappling with applying the concepts from the  lesson that day.  The comment was made in a humor but it ignited the class into a discussion on how we actually spend our class time.  Was it the most efficient and effective use of time, given the digital technologies at our disposal?
The conclusion this class came to was that our limited face to face time would be better spent collectively developing deeper understandings, problem solving and making connections to  the coursework rather than a lecture style transmission of content, with follow up questions to be done at home.
This discussion moved me to... | Read more »

Update on the Autohosted Apps Preview Program—part...

On May 16, 2014 we notified you that the Office 365 Autohosted Apps Preview program—a program to determine how best to provide a friction-free deployment experience for creating apps for SharePoint—would end on June 16, 2014 and developers would not be able to create new autohosted apps in SharePoint. This decision was based on our commitment to working with the Azure and Visual Studio teams to incorporate developers’ feedback and evolve the hosting concept for apps, so that we could deliver a more seamless experience for developers. We want to update you on these changes and how they affect you.
Because you can no longer install autohosted apps in SharePoint Online, the capability to create autohosted apps and deploy them into your production SharePoint Online site has been removed from the Office Developer Tools in the ... | Read more »

It’s a familiar scene that takes place every day in classrooms around the world. A teacher shares an assignment with her students, providing informational handouts, a reading list, and a list of recommended resources. The students then form study groups where they collaborate and advise each other on their individual projects, share drafts, and edit one another’s work. From time to time, the teacher checks in with her students to assess their progress and offer guidance. Finally, the students complete their final papers and turn them in.
But what if one or more of the students has a disability that makes it difficult or impossible for them to access information in the same way as the others?
Reading, writing and collaboration are fundamental components of education –always have been, always will be. Yet in a world where technology has transformed the way people learn, many of the documents, texts and other resources used by students and their teachers are digital. They... | Read more »

Installing the Docker for OpenStack Heat

Docker is an engine that automates deploying applications as highly portable, self-sufficient containers, independent of hardware, language, framework, packaging system and hosting provider. Heat is the main project used when it comes to OpenStack orchestration. There is a Docker plugin for Heat. To install this plugin, you’ll need to use the stable/icehouse branch (which seems like what’s made the tool so mature rather than simply being available for Nova) to install Heat via apt-get install. Once downloaded, extract the contrib/docker folder and delete the tests directory. Then copy the contrib/docker folder to the OpenStack controller. Here we’ll put it at /usr/lib/heat directory. This results in the path of /usr/lib/heat/docker/docker. Next, install python-pip:
apt-get install python-pip
Then check the installer requirements:
pip install -r requirements.txt
Then edit the heat config, likely at /etc/heat/heat.conf. Here, provide the plugin in the... | Read more »

Porch increases productivity with Office 365

Porch, an online home improvement network, had a mix of software, but needed a common set of technology tools to support its rapid growth.
The company tried using Google Apps in an effort to standardize, but opted to instead adopt Microsoft Office 365 to gain multiple cloud-based services that would help it run more cohesively and efficiently.
Employees now use comprehensive calendaring, document collaboration, and streamlined business practices, which have resulted in a boost in their productivity.  Read the Porch customer story to learn more.

Office Lens updates: improved document clean up an...

Yu Ukai is a Program Manager on the Office Lens team in Japan.
Office Lens for Windows Phone is like having a scanner in your pocket. Like magic, it digitalizes notes on whiteboards or blackboards. Always find important documents or business cards. Sketch your ideas and snap a picture for later. Don’t lose receipts or stray sticky notes again!
You spoke and we listened. Today, we’re happy to announce that Office Lens is updated with the two most popular pieces of feedback we’ve received: improved document clean up and OneNote location picker.
Document pictures are cleaned up—like a real scanner.
Capturing quality images of documents is important. That’s why we worked hard to give you a better experience. The difference is literally clear! In document mode, you’ll notice better image color. Now you can use Office Lens as you would a real document scanner.

Look Less Silly on Github

And with Git in GeneralSo you’ve gotten ok with scripts, or at least have tasked yourself with sorting through and in some cases slinging around plain text files. You’ve even heard about this Github thing, maybe you’ve already made an account, maybe you’re even digging in to it more often. What could go wrong? Instead of me just being critical of strangers on Twitter, here’s a few things you may want to avoid when starting out, with some other background to get a better handle on things. Let me know what I’m overlooking or am just plain wrong about in the comments! Get the gistI’m not going to provide a full introduction to code sharing sites, but it comes up often enough that you can also paste code you’re working on at Github’s associated gist.github.com site. Even anonymously, this is a quick and easy way to let others see log files or code you’re working on, stack multiple files behind one URL, and keep it ‘private’ so only folks you give the URL to can see it.
