Aberdeen Developers are pleased to present a talk by Mike Taulty, on Thursday 21th July 2016 at the Robert Gordon University.
A Platform for More Personal Computing?
Salt and pepper. Fish and chips. Starsky and Hutch. Windows and PC.
Just as Windows became intrinsically linked with personal computing, Microsoft is working to make that just-over-the-horizon leap towards natural interaction and ‘More Personal Computing’ (MPC). It’s already surfacing today in technologies like ‘Cortana’ and ‘Windows Hello’.
In this session, we’ll take a demo-based approach to look at some of the MPC technologies that Windows developers already have available to them in the Universal Windows Platform and some additional technologies out in the cloud under the banner of ‘Microsoft Cognitive Services’
We’ll look at some things with pens, touch, speech, facial recognition, speaker identification and we’ll see what the Windows 10 app platform has to offer developers building modern apps with an ever-more personal touch.
You should expect Visual Studio, C# code and XAML UI and most of the talk will build up an application from scratch adding features as we go along.
Mike Taulty works in the Developer and Platform Group at Microsoft in the UK where he has spent the past few years helping developers understand and get the best from the Microsoft platform. Prior to this, Mike spent 3 years with Microsoft Consulting Services as a consultant on developer technologies.
Before joining Microsoft, Mike spent the previous 9 years working as a software developer for a number of enterprises, consultancies and software vendors working with a variety of operating system, client, communication and server technologies.
