Impressions of HoloLens

I was at //build/ last week and I had the chance to get into the HoloLens Academy. What is the HoloLens academy? It is a course delivered by the HoloLens team. An introduction to development on HoloLens. The places were very limited and, as you can imagine, there was a rush. Everybody wanted to try those enigmatic glasses. I had problem registering, [...]

//BUILD/ Day 4

Last day of //Build/…following session at 8:30 when coming back from party at 1AM. Such commitment deserved a Surface + Lumia 920… Session of the day : Deep dive into the kernel of .NET on Windows Phone 8 Nice session ! Wasn’t head breaking as I was fearing, especially this early!

Interesting session to get an overview for some of very [...]

//BUILD/ Day 0

  Arrived late afternoon in Redmond. After a quick refresh, heading for building 92, where registration takes place. A HUGE line in front. I was surprised because the registration for BUILD 2011 was so smooth and I though we would be in small comitee. Anyway after a while I got the magic key for the conference. Next stop, the Mixers building for the [...]

To //Build/ (Or not to //Build/)

  I was one of the lucky attendee at the Build 2 weeks ago for the presentation of Windows 8. With all those rumors about the future of .NET, Silverlight and the total secrecy of Microsoft (I suspect Steve Sinofsky worked for the CIA at some point) you can say I was very excited but also a bit anxious. In some way…it was worth the wait! Windows [...]
