In the last couple of year Satya Nadella and used the term More Personal Computing multiple times to define the new era of devices that consumers will carry with them and on their bodies. In this session Neil will explore what it means to build more personal software for this next generation of more personal computers. Technologies covered will include, Cortana, handwriting recognition, gestural input, gaze, and identity. Hardware discussed will include wearables, sensors, phones and tablets. Neil will also explore Microsoft's new hardware technologies in this arena, including Band, Kinect, HUB, and HoloLens.
Adam Ralph was gracious enough to spend some time with me explaining NancyFX, an open source project for creating "lightweight, low-ceremony, framework for building HTTP based services on .Net and Mono." It is so lightweight, in fact, that Adam builds an entire web application using ScriptCS, a text editor, and his wits using this interesting framework. I've heard great things about the Nancy community as well.
