#VS2015 – Looking for a nice demo using the latest Microsoft technologies? Family Notes is your starting point

Hi !

The Windows App Team Blog team has released a month ago a nice sample of a Universal Windows App which uses most of the latest Microsoft technologies for Windows 10. This app allows the creation of notes, in sticky notes format, and to do this uses Windows Face Recognition with Cognitive Services to identify users, it also uses Cortana voice commands to start the app or create new notes, and much more.


There is also a nice set of blogs posts explaining the development process (see references) with all the explaining samples using C# and XAML. Also, there are some videos in Channel 9 related to the Family Notes development background (Using Ink, Voice, and Face Recognition in a UWP App)

All the source code is available in GitHub, so you can easily download the code and start to learn:

*All this topics are described in the main GitHub page
