(JAX) Code Impact 2017

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!

Tallahassee Code Camp 2016!

I spoke with a great group today.

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 URL of the repository: https://github.com/azarc3/CortanaDeepDive

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.

— Happy Coding!

Tampa Code Camp 2015 Presentation Materials

I had the honor of presenting one of my favorite topics (#Cortana!) at Tampa Code Camp. As promised the materials I presented from (minus the witty banter and EXCELLENT interaction with the group) are available here.

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
