Microsoft invites to Azure Vidyapeeth

Today, in my inbox, I got an invitation to the webinar series called “Azure Vidyapeeth”

The webinar series comprises of 15 session starting from today till the end of the month April 2015. …Nothing fancy here, just introduction and demo of Azure product features. But what caught my eyes is the name they given to the series, Azure Vidyapeeth.

If you’re interested in learning this Microsoft Cloud computing/hosting technology? Go ahead and register there for free, and don’t forget to check the Botpress site as well!
PS: There’s mobile app exclusively created for Azure Vidyapeeth for WindowsPhone. I hope the same app is available for other mobile platforms.

Why Online Office365 cannot insert OneDrive files directly?

I use Ubuntu OS and simplest way to use Microsoft Office suite on linux is Online Office 365 -accessing via or Having most of the important files on OneDrive, I’ve no problem switching from device to device (or between different Operating systems). Although LibreOffice (which comes out of the box with Ubuntu Desktop) is pretty solid and has more features than MS OfficeOnline, I rather prefer online office365 as it automatically saves files on OneDrive.

But Online Office lacks a major feature. While working on document online (on a web-browser), you cannot insert files/pictures into document from your cloud storage (ie. OneDrive). I was shocked to find that its missing! This feature is so obvious that Google Docs has this since years. You can insert images from your Google Drive to spreadsheet/presentation/doc -without having to upload anything from your local machine.

C’mon, Microsoft! How could you miss this? Now I have to download some of images stored on OneDrive to my computer just to insert and upload them on my Word/PowerPoint document!

In love with Bootstrap

Recently, I realised that my unchanged theme (since 2011!) is obsolete. Although this blog is mobile friendly (thanks to jetpack, we’ve mobile theme), I’ve been thinking of single responsive theme that would work across all devices. While researching the solution, I discovered many ‘cool’ themes &  I must confess, I’m in love with Bootstrap. It’s such a fun playing around.

I might implement Bootstrap CSS on this blog some time soon…
