If you could see me now, I'm a giddy, happy, silly little niner.
I just learned about something at Microsoft that happens every year called "TechFest". It's a convention for Microsoft Research, meant to provide a glimpse of what goes on in what I now think of as the Area 51 of Microsoft.
I spent a couple hours just walking around yesterday, going nuts for everything I saw. Typically, when I go to a convention, I like most of what I see, but it's only the rare item that really brings out my excitement.
TechFest is completely different. There isn't a single thing sitting in there that isn't simply fantastic. Beautiful. Amazing. Fun. Useful.
In this, the first video in what will be a series covering this event, we get a nice introduction to TechFest, some info about Microsoft Research (MSR), and two projects: DynaVis and FastDash.
When you watch this video, hopefully you get an idea of why I'm so excited right now. Once I have the whole series online, you'll be able to see the amazing work being done in MSR - and this only represents a few projects. There are many others.
I'd like to film them all someday
