I had the honor of meeting (and in some cases, reconnecting) with a great group of people at Bradenton’s Station 2 Innovation. Spark Growth put on one of their many Tech Talks, inviting subject matter experts to share what new and useful in their fields of passion. Mine, of course, is Cortana. 😉
Today I geeked out with some very cool people over at the University of North Florida. Special thanks to Bayer White and his cohorts for putting together a great event full of fun, learning and awesome content.
My talk was of course about Cortana… but a significant break from the regular rhetoric. Today, it was all about Cortana Skills and proof positive that Cortana is/can be useful (and intriguing!) on Android and iOS as well. As promised to those folks who braved my one hour session, here is the slide deck that we covered. Thanks again for attending!
Special thanks to Microsoft for forcibly updating my Visual Studio installation LAST NIGHT with unpublicized breaking changes to the Package.manifest format! We got through it and made it happen though. 😉
Here’s the presentation I rifled through at the beginning of the talk: http://bit.ly/tallycc2016
We didn’t go though all the slides since we pretty much covered it during our talk… and because the Voice Command Service Stuff isn’t in it.
UPDATE: I just remembered that if you want the “Weather” example to work you need to follow the instructions in the following file: IntegratingCortant.Win10.Universal\Extensions\GeopositionExpressions.cs
