When I think IoT one of the first names that comes to mind is Dan Thyer. Dan is very active in the developer community in the Carolinas. You can usually count on him to have some kind of builders fair at the Carolina Code Camp as well.
A different chat, while no code I really enjoyed this one. Using a different venue makes for a nice change. It might have been a bit of a challenge to do an episode outside if there was going to be lots of code.
I also want to thank Michael for remembering us enterprise type developers!
Relating to people focusing on one thing, I personally I feel developers are interested in all of the things that are going on right now. Most of us just have to balance our "free" time and wind up focusing more on what will improve our performance on the job or help us land our next job.
Is there any chance the links could also be listed in the description like on Ping?
I like the idea of how Cortana links back to Halo, but as far as Siri goes, I thought that was just a feature to annoy people around you. I had an iPad and never used Siri. I really did not think that was worth posting. Next time, no matter how lame or useless a comment may be, I'll be sure to leave one.
A sub for Laura... I am not sure if the people I like to listen to would be available to do a Ping or if they would want to do one. Maybe you could use one of those little 9 guys, kind of like Mr. Bill. Then you just have to find someone to do the voice.
