Events and code examples.

The last couple of months I have been speaking at a lot of events. For those who visited these events or for those who want to know more about the subject I will give a brief summary of the talks and post the slides / sample code here for you.

At the SDN event last march I have been talking about Azure mobile services. In this talk I explained how to use Azure mobile services in combination with Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. The example I have build for this is a clean example on how to do this in a simple way. You can find the slides (in Dutch) and example code here:

At the TechDays in the Netherlands last april I have been talking about the new Kinect for Windows v2. As a participant in the Developer preview I had early access to the hardware and SDK. During this talk I showed a lot of the possibilities of the new Kinect for Windows sensor. You can watch my presentation online at the Channel 9 site.

At the SDN event last june I spoke about connecting hardware to a Windows Phone 8 application. During this session I showed how you can connect and control Arduino hardware with your own Windows Phone 8 application. The Arduino hardware featured a lot of nice shining LED lights with the use of the Windows Phone application you could decide which to turn on or off. And even select the color of the RGB LED's. For now I'm only sharing the slides (in Dutch) since the code needs a little bit of cleaning up. But if you are interested in the rough code please contact me.

Well I hope to be speaking at more events about these or other topics soon.

Phone Developers DayThe first Windows Phone Developers Day was a big succes this year.

As a speaker I was able to talk about Windows Azure Mobile Services this year.

During the session we experienced one issue. The Push notifications did not make it to the clients. After the session I starting looking into the reason why this did not work since it worked fine the night before the session when I tested everything.

After adding some more logging to the Insert script I found out the script became Case Sensitive. After changing the column names in my script everything worked fine again. These updated scripts are also available in the solution.

I hope you all like looking into my example. If you have any questions or suggestions please let me know.
