In this article by David Overton, author of Microsoft Windows Intune 2.0: Quickstart Administration, we will examine the real-time nature of PC management as we explore the alerts that Windows Intune raises which require action on our part, exploring how we both monitor and respond to them.
We can have configure computers to minimize situations where alerts will be raised through good practices of updates, firewall, and anti-malware management. However, problems will still arise with users' computers, whether this is a request for assistance, a computer that will not boot, or some other warning picked up by Windows Intune. These need to be categorized and responded to in a timely manner. Some can be closed and filed depending on circumstances, while others require a visit to the computer itself with other tools to further diagnose and resolve.
In this article, we will discuss this in the following sections:
- General Windows Intune alerts
- Malware alerts
- Remote Assistance alerts

The MVC model helps us separate the business logic from the display and data. Now, we can build an application on Force.com . For an effective application, having correct data is as important as having efficient business logic. Force.com is suitable for data-driven and process-driven applications, hence the data operations are massive. Force.com provides us with some really nice and efficient tools to manage, manipulate, and clean massive data per iteration.
In this article by Siddhesh Kabe, author of Force.com Developer Certification Handbook (DEV 401), we will learn:
- How to import data using the data loader
- The standard data management operations
- How to import data using wizard
- How to execute the data loader via command line
- Some lessons in Force.com IDs
So let's start playing with the data.Read Force.com: Data Management in full
Devices such as the iPhone are also location-aware; its GPS receiver is able to determine its position anywhere in the world. Movement can be tracked, the current speed can be obtained, and even the direction the device is facing can be determined. In addition to mapping, location services are finding their way into all kinds of areas ranging from photography to messaging clients.
In this article written by Christopher Caleb, author of Flash iOS Apps Cookbook, we will cover the following recipes:
- Determining your current location
- Determining your speed and heading

There are several generic containers and generic algorithms available in the .NET Framework and a couple of other majorly accepted APIs such as Power Collections and C5.
In this article by Sudipta Mukherjee, author of .NET Generics 4.0 Beginner’s Guide, we will take a look at:
- Generic container patterns: There are several patterns that are used more than the others in code bases that use Generics. Here, we shall walk through some of these very popular generic structures.
- Best practices: Here we shall walk through a list of best practices with succinct causes to back them.
An application module in the ADF Business Components framework of JDeveloper, represents a basic transactional unit that implements specifc business use cases. It encompasses a data model comprising a hierarchy of view objects and optionally other application module instances, along with a number of custom methods that together implement a specifc business use case.
In this article, Nick Haralabidis, the author of Oracle JDeveloper 11gR2 Cookbook will cover:
- Creating and using generic extension interfaces
- Exposing a custom method as a web service
- Accessing a service interface method from another application module
- A passivation/activation framework for custom session-specifc data
- Displaying application module pool statistics
- Using a shared application module for static lookup data
- Using a custom database transaction
This article covers some advanced topics such as conditions, raised events, and so on.
In this article by Ezra Schwartz, author of Axure RP 6 Prototyping Essentials, we will cover a set of features such as raised events, conditional logic and variables, introduction to a terminology which is usually associated with programming and suggests complexity. It is understandable if you are not interested in, or are intimidated by, the prospect of coding, and wish to avoid using this set of Axure features as long as possible. You should not.
First, rest assured that no coding is involved. By now, you are familiar with Axure's Interactions and the Case Editor features, which require you only to select from a contextual selection of options and construct interactions by pointing and clicking. The only typing required is the labeling. You will find a similar easy-to-use interface when you use features such as the Condition Builder or simulate "drag and drop".
Secondly, think about some of the terminologies and methods we use in interaction design. We use branching logic to determine use cases, scenarios, and how functionality responds to user interaction under certain conditions. Axure makes it fairly easy to model the logic we need, in order to visualize branching paths, and express it in the interactive prototype.Read Axure RP 6 Prototyping Essentials: Advanced Interactions in full
