  • IoTShow: Kick-Off and Steve Teixeira Interview

    Good stuff. A few suggestions:

    - Why Microsoft? I love Microsoft, but that in itself isn't a good enough reason to embrace the Microsoft approach to IoT

    - consistency in dev tools and operating systems makes sense, so that could be a reason, but it could also mean that Microsoft IoT evolves less quickly than the alternatives

    - more details on the the roadmap, of course (though I understand why there's hesitation to release such details)

    - great management and security could be reasons, and it's easy to imagine Microsoft thinking so, but what's the plan? So we could use more discussion of those topics

    - I've got the Galileo, and it works well. The samples are decent, but limited in number. The documentation seems even more limited. Is there a plan to take it to the next level? In truth this is part of what makes me hesitate to embrace the Microsoft vision - if the investment is limited here, will it be limited later, or in other ways?

    Thanks, and I'm excited to hear more!

  • Defrag Tools #111 - Programming Windows Store Apps with HTML, CSS and JavaScript Part 1

    Wow - his book is ONLY available for free. Kraig explains his book this video in one of the the most articulate and passionate discussions I've ever seen, and yet when I go to get the book it's FREE! I'm feeling guilty. I'll give it a serious read for sure.

    And to be clear, I have no relationship whatsoever with Kraig, MSDN, or even Microsoft (these days).

    Thank you!!!

    p.s. I would like a physical book, even if I have to pay for it...

  • Announcing: Microsoft’s Unified Technology Event for Enterprises

    There must be an internal Microsoft class for naming things...

  • TouchDevelop v3 - WinPhone 8, Speech, NFC, Tiles and much more...

    Thanks for the article, but apparently IE 11 is not supported (Win 8.1 Preview) Sad

    Any word on when that may be coming?

  • .NET Gadgeteer

    Very cool - I can hardly wait. But Clint, you missed one of the most exciting points of this video when Colin (at the 1 minute point) mentions the fact that Visual Studio and .NET can be used all the way from the cloud, server, web sites, laptoops, etc. right down to small cheap devices! That is an amazing story.
