I know I'm late to the party, and it's not really important... but the first thing I noticed in the description is "built... from the group up"; I'm assuming that should be ground up. Let me dive into the video.
I love how far DocumentDB has come. I have a query though about open sourcing it; I keep checking on GitHub and have been seeing the same message for a while now that the code for the SDK is coming. Is there a timeline that we can expect or has the repository been posted elsewhere?
The wheelchair vs. stairs example was a great learning experience and shift in perspective. Thank You for the episode.
I totally agree. This statement got me thinking a lot about how I design things and if I've inadvertently put in barriers into my products. I'm affected by the color blindness issue, but with yellow and some shades of green. I can't tell them apart even if they are placed next to each other. Inclusive design is something I never knew about but is very important.
Hey guys, I'm starting to get the hang of this show after coming over from Ping. Just can't get the schedule right so I don't comment much but had to check in with Mark in the video, Rick in the comments and Seth in the video and Golnaz somewhere in the back putting gnomes and butterflies in the video. Hi again.
Professionally I started with VB6 but quickly moved to .NET primarily with VB.NET. I now use both VB.NET and C# working mostly on what I still call smart client apps; I understand web stuff and can make a decent website but am not a web dev. I started out programming aged 12.5 in 1993 with BASIC on an MSDOS PC and over the years in high school learned COBOL, C, Pascal, C++ and PROLOG before coming across VBA in Excel.
Karan's got a very interesting job. Kind of similar to what I'm doing for the next few months. In my case however, instead of playing games which is way cooler, I get to watch games (sports) and then do a bunch of analytics on the data collected at various games and training. Trying to get the system really performant before leaving it in the hands of real data experts and coaches who can make sense of the resulting information.
Am I crazy or are there pink garden gnomes in the video? (for example at 2:40)
I saw them too, so either you're not crazy or we both are. They kept popping up in different places. I think Golnaz or someone else was having fun in post production.
I knew of 3 of the news items as they came out, and my favorite was the undersea datacenter. Stroke of genius I think. I was all over the ignite registration having failed this time around for //Build/. Hololens + NFL = AWE-SOME.
