SDN Cast 70 – SDN, Microsoft and Google Event News

image

Due to the third SDN Event last week on Friday October 6th we were a day early with our weekly Dutch SDN Cast. Usually we broadcast on Thursday but this week we had to shift things a bit, so we broadcasted on Wednesday. As usual we pick up our foreign speakers from the airport the day before the SDN Event and bring them to their hotel to stay the night.

You can’t ask the presenters to travel large distances all on one day, can’t you? For this reason, we moved the SDN Cast a day earlier and didn’t skip the web cast because you don’t want to miss the weekly news either don’t you agree? News just goes on and on, SDN Event or not.

And news there was … a lot of it! Besides the annual hardware event by Google there was the Microsoft Mixed Reality event the day before. Would it be a coincidence? Microsoft’s event was completely focused on Mixed Reality announcements. Some sort of a special on Mixed Reality headsets, HoloLens and MR software.

Other than the already announced headsets Microsoft this event showed off the new Samsung Mixed Reality headset that will become available soon. But more important was the vision Microsoft showed us with regards to the Mixed Reality future developments. All available in the soon to be released Fall Creators Update.

With this Fall Creators Update Microsoft will also include the Windows Mixed Reality home – the Cliff House. In this virtual space you can move and design the spaces with your apps and holograms.

Another thing that was announced is that Microsoft acquired AltSpaceVR and the SteamVR catalog will soon be available from the Mixed Reality world of Windows. Currently already available for developers in Preview.

Somewhat later, the day after, Google held its annual hardware event. Many of the details already leaked as we discussed last week, but now we officially were introduced to the announcements and no need to speculate over the details. A whole slew of new devices, the new Pixel 2, Google Home, Google Buds, Google Clips and the new Chromebook to name a few.

For both events I’ve added the links in the show notes below in this article so you can go back and watch the events again.

We haven’t decided yet what day we will go live with SDN Cast 71, maybe again on Wednesday but another option is live from the TechDays event in Amsterdam. Go to www.sdncast.nl for more information on the exact date and time.

SDN Cast 69 – Ignite, free Azure and Meetups!

image

Ignite was this week the major event for Microsoft, next to Build probably the biggest Microsoft event of the year. Lots of news around Office 365 (or should we say Microsoft 365 these days), Azure but as always lot to do around the Enterprise solutions such as SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business and so forth, and so forth …

A peculiar group walked up the stage this time. A group of Quantum Computing specialists sat on stage in a cozy setting having fun with all sorts of Quantum Computing jokes, but the audience was not very responsive to it. If you ask me (and if you read the reviews from the media we weren’t the only ones) a bit too heavy subject to discuss for a fairly ‘normal’ audience that attends Ignite. Absolutely a mind-blowing topic but you might wonder if Ignite is the right setting for this.

Satya Nadella released his book Hit Refresh Nadella to tell you all about how he became CEO for Microsoft and pressed the Refresh button, but also explained why he thought it was needed to do this. Satya gave his book to all of his Microsoft employees to read with a customized cover (Our Quest … instead of The Quest). Well worth the effort reading the book, especially to find out how his personal live influenced his many choices in the process.

The 69th edition of our Dutch weekly SDN Cast was partially on location this week, switching between Meetup location Nieuwegein and our home studios.

Our host Fanie was guest tonight at the 4DotNet Event:

Xamarin Event – September 28, Nieuwegein
https://events.4dotnet.nl/xamarin-event

He talked with Gerald Versluis who presented his session “Xamarin Mobile DevOps: setting up an automated pipeline for your apps” at the event and afterwards had a signing session to sign his new book Xamarin Continuous Integration and Delivery for the attendees of the event.

SDN Cast 68 – DotNETConf en Google leaks

SDNCast 68-800

Conference season obviously started and the big three (Microsoft, Google and Apple) pop out events shortly after each other anxiously trying to be the first to come with new hardware announcements. Apple last week presented their new iPhones, at the end of October it is expected that Microsoft will come forward with -their- hardware announcements (although there is also the rumor that there will be another event in the middle of the month) and Google is planned for October 4th.

This week unexpected information was published about the hardware Google most likely planned to show at their October 4th event and probably not-amused to see all their scoops in a web post from one of the tech journalists. The new Pixel 2 devices, the new Google Pixelbook, a smaller smart speaker Google Home Mini and the new edition of their Daydream View VR headset.

Another one on the long list of upcoming events was DotNETConf online this week where Microsoft gave us an update on their development tools. An overview of what is going on with Visual Studio, Xamarin and Visual Studio Code, their light weight editor. Also updates on their languages and what is going on in the cloud with Azure.

We discussed it all in our weekly Dutch SDN Cast together with the news of the week, the rumors of tomorrow and the events on schedule. If you master the Dutch language go on over and watch the Dutch episode (on a weekly base so don’t forget to subscribe!) and in an hour you are completely up to date!

SDN Cast 67 – Apple Event and Windows Insider Previews

image

Another promising week with lots of information to share. A few Windows Insider Previews – for both Redstone 3 (Fall Creators Update) and Redstone 4 (vNext) but also the big Apple Event of the year where they announce all their new hardware stuff. This year Apple Watch 3, Apple TV, iPhone 8 and iPhone X saw the light and we discussed it all in our Dutch SDN Cast this week. Was it all new they presented? Is it all innovation?

Outside this big event we also talk about the news items of the week. The announcement of the new Windows Developer Day in London, transferring NuGet services to Microsoft, Team guest access, translating VS Code and much, much more (the links from the show are below).

So, if you understand Dutch, watch the recording of our 67th SDN Cast from this week!

As usual we are always looking for presenters for our own events and Meetup’s so if you want to share something about hot technologies or just about something you implemented at work or in an App that could be interesting to our audience let us know so we can schedule you for one or our next SDN events or Dutch .NET Group Meetups.

This off course also goes for if you want to write a great article for us to publish in our SDN Magazines or at our SDN Website. The downside of publishing a magazine article is that there can be sometime between writing the article and publishing the magazine. So, if it is time critical sometimes the best option is to publish it on the www.sdn.nl website to get more speedy attention to the article.

As you see, options enough to address your audience with top notch information. You can even, if you like, be our guest in our SDN Cast shows to discuss the projects you are working on or other topics you master. We will instruct you how to connect with us and what it is you need to join the show.

Hopefully we will see you at our weekly web cast, for the schedule go to www.sdncast.nl for next week’s announcement to find out the day and time of our next broadcast or go to www.sdncast.nl/youtube to watch old episodes and videos that we recorded at our events. Don’t forget to subscribe our YouTube channel www.sdncast.nl/subscribe or go directly to YouTube not to miss any of our shows!

SDN Cast 66 – XlPublish with Mr. Moffat and Mr. Hoppe

SDNCast 66-800

Today we had our 66th SDN Cast, our 100th published video. Today with Mr. Moffat and Mr. Hoppe showing their new Excel tool XlPublish an Add-In for Microsoft Excel to better integrate Excel data and Microsoft’s Power BI’s Dashboarding product and make it available to every Excel user everywhere.

Usually the SDN Cast in Dutch but today the webcast is in English as Dick Moffat is from the other half of the globe from Canada. My connection was a bit crappy this time, probably my family was busy streaming Netflix eating all the bandwidth instead of watching daddy in his webcast Confused smile.

XlPublish is a very interesting product, making your work as Power BI person a lot easier if you have your data in Excel or even in external data that you can expose through Excel!

Where can you find our 66th episode of our SDN Cast?

SDN Cast 65 – Alexa and Cortana Integration

clip_image002

Amazon and Microsoft announce to continue to work together and added integration between Alexa, Amazons smart IA interface, to communicate with Cortana, Microsoft’s smart girl – the other IA Interface in both directions.

It should be possible soon to open Cortana’s interface from Alexa and ask Cortana when your next meeting is scheduled, or to reschedule your appointment if you can’t make it and you want to move the appointment to another time or place.

The other way around you could open Alexa’s from Cortana to order some stuff on Amazon. Both domains are really extending each other and with that extending their scope of applications. It would allow you to create your own Cortana Skill using Cortana Skills Kit or develop Alexa skills with the Alexa Skills Kit to connect your own platform to both smart bots.

Some other news items we discussed this week was about the sneak preview of the upcoming release of XLPublish and the next version of UWP Community Toolkit. We want to try to get Dick Moffat on the show again so he can give us a demo of their new product.

SDN Cast 64 – Live at 8 with C# 8 and Android 8

clip_image002

Lucky 8, this week is themed number 8 … We are broadcasting the Dutch SDN Cast 8 squared = 64, Mads Torgersen was interviewed by Seth Juarez on C# 8 discussing features like Nullable Reference Types, Async Streams, Default Interface Implementations and Extension Everything. C# 8 is still in the planning phase but as with previous releases Mads shares the things the C# team are thinking about to put in the next release. Features obviously may be dropped or can be changed for the final release but the recording shares a lot of new stuff with the public already.

Also, Android 8 aka Android Oreo was released this week. Another 8 for us to consume. The Dutch Android site is still on Android Nougat but setting the locale to United States changes the site to Oreo.

Another big thing this week is Gamescom, where Microsoft opened the pre-order for Xbox X aka Xbox Project Scorpio. With this Xbox is opened for any games developer. Xbox used to be closed for development unless you were one of the certified game developers. This restriction is now lifted and only thing you need is a Dev Center account that you can purchase for $20 one-time fee.

Another demo this week, this time Skype integration on your website with two lines of code. How to easily put Skype interaction on your site, to living persons or even bots.
