Important: This repost is just to start one of my 2020 projects, which is very easy: write more fun stuff !
During all my time working I was lucky enough to have some very cool bosses. So this is not personal at all, is just a funny way to discard a “incoming call” from someone.
The main idea is to use Leap Motion SDK and Skype for Business Desktop SDK (Lync 2013 SDK) to create a simple app which will allows us to ignore a call just doing a Swipe gesture.
Important: If you try to use Lync 2013 SDK in Windows 10 with Visual Studio 2015 or Visual Studio 15 Preview, you’ll find tons of problems. I’ll write a post on this later about the necessary steps to do this.
Last week I was at the Caribbean Developer Conference (@caribbeandevcon) in Punta Cana
and it was an amazing experience. The agenda was great, and I was lucky to assist
to a couple of sessions like the one leaded by Phil Hack (@haacked), Scott Hanselman (@shanselman), Andres Pineda (@ajpinedam), Cecil Phillip (@cecilphillip) and Jessica Deen (@jldeen).
There were lots of amazing moments, like the moment I meet Scott Hanselman and also have the chance to chat with him for Channel 9 (@ch9) about Computer Vision. If you are Microsoft Developer, you know that this is a big moment, however it was even bigger for me. Let’s take a look at this picture and I’ll explain you why this is important.
Note: Special thanks to Kaitlin McKinnon and Cecil Phillip for setting up this video recording!
You probably noticed that my daughter Martina was also there. She was part of the interview! Scott was an amazing host, and we talked about how we can use Image Recognition systems in day to day scenarios, like garbage bin detection, smart parking lots and even to track our cat at home.
And now is the moment to stop the tale and s think about this.
A 9 years old girl is somehow going to be part of one of the most amazing event ever, and … she is going to be on TV (which, by the way, keep her extremely !) After all this experience, she was very excited. Imagine a 4.5 hours flight back home talking about this, what a great experience!
Even today, as soon as we get back to Canada, she brings a couple of her friends after school, asked for my parking garage toy and she explained them how the camera system works.
They even started to design a system to track squirrels and
other animals on our backyard. I’m guessing that I’ll have a new set of challenges
during the next winter.
There tons of activities you can do to help kids and girls to love STEM. I know that I’m lucky that I can bring my kid to these events. That’s why, if you can, I strongly encourage to bring your kids (and/or your kid’s friends) to these events. Share moments with them, introduce them to the speakers, attendees, helpers, etc on the event. They will learn new stuff; they will share some amazing ideas, and this is an amazing path for them to learn and know STEM!
See you in the next video:
Update: Today is also the International Girls Day !!!
And because I don’t want to miss anyone, I’ll share this tweet
with almost all the speakers
And share some names I collected (in Pokemon mode!)
Now that I’m starting to talk about Machine Learning For .net developers, one of the first questions you ask me is that you describe it as a model. Well, in the series of articles of [Data Sciende for Begginers] there’s a video of Brandon Rohrer which basically nailed it.
Ahora que estoy comenzando a hablar de Machine Learning para .Net developers, una de las primeras preguntas que me hacen es que describa que es un modelo. Pues bien, en la serie de artículos de [Data Sciende for Begginers] hay un video de Brandon Rohrer que lo explica a la perfección.
Personally, I must comment that besides being mentioned several times, Coding4fun was one of the sources that most frequently reviewed. The blog allowed me to meet great authors (very smart people) And it was always a constant source of inspiration for new ideas.
Many of the best Kinect and IoT projects could be found there. The same applies to the missile launchers, the 1st Labs in Project Oxford (now known by Cognitive Services) and much more!

So, It is time to say THANKS to Greg Duncan (@gduncan411)who for more than 10 years has done a great job! Thanks!
Cerca de 1500 posts en el blog, casi 300 videos y más
En lo personal, debo comentar que además de ser mencionado varias veces, Coding4fun era una de las fuentes que más frecuentemente revisaba. El blog me permitio conocer a grandes autores y a gente muy inteligente, y siempre fue una fuente constante de inspiración para nuevas ideas.
Muchos de los mejores proyectos de Kinect se IoT se podían encontrar allí. Lo mismo aplica para los lanzamisiles, los 1ros Labs de Project Oxford (ahora conocido por Cognitive Services) y ¡mucho más!
Así que, es momento de darle las GRACIAS a Greg Duncan (@gduncan411)que durante mas de 10 años ha hecho una labor genial! Thanks!
These are hardware days, so this is time for a quick post. When I’m offline and travelling, I always try to bring with me some videos to take advantage of the time and learn something new. Channel 9 is a great source of materials and now thanks to Jon Galloway (@jongalloway ), downloading videos from C9 will be much more easies.
The installation steps are very easy, in 2 lines we have the main ps1 locally ready to be used.
And then, it’s a matter of tries to get to the correct format for the RSS feed to download videos. After a couple of test I learned the following steps to make it work
If I want to download some videos on the Microsoft Research category, I can browse them using the next URL
Post rápido de jueves que hoy es día de hardware. Si alguna vez te enfrentas con una situación donde tienes que viajar y quieres bajarte un par de videos de Channel 9 para matar el rato. El siguiente PowerShell Script de Jon Galloway (@jongalloway ), te puede ahorrar bastante tiempo.
La instalación del mismo es bastante simple
Y luego solo queda aprender cómo poner el feed correcto para que el mismo funcione. Despues de un par de pruebas y errores, llegue a la siguiente conclusión
Si por ejemplo quieres bajar todos los videos que están en la categoría de Microsoft Research con la siguiente URL
We finally have internet @NewHome and, now is time to get up to date with some due tasks. Review some Build 2017 sessions is on my ToDo list during the past weeks. The Channel 9 team is creating and sharing a set of posts where they are going to analyze all the session with the following topics
Ha costado pero ya tenemos internet @NewHome y claro, es momento de ponerme al día con temas atrasados. Uno de ellos son varias sesiones de Build 2017. La gente de Channel 9 está creando una serie de posts donde analizarán sesiones organizadas por los siguientes tópicos
