Microsoft has been quietly revamping it's build system with the goal of making it genuinely cross platform and much, much easier to work with. The results are pretty amazing. In this session we'll be taking a look at these changes and how you can use them to greatly improve the way you put together and customise your build system. Apart from building .NET code, we'll also show you how to build Java code, how you can integrate with tools like SonarQube and what you would need to do of you want to create your own custom build tasks for those times where you want to do something a little, ahem, unusual.
Microsoft Cognitive Services enable the power of machine-based AI with just a few lines of code. In this demo Mickey "ScruffyFurn" MacDonald, shows how simple it is to create an app that can plug into these powerful algorithms. Through a live coded example, he will provide step by step instructions on getting started with the Emotion API to detect emotions on faces in photos and videos. Join and learn how to put intelligence APIs to work for you.
