Building the Internet of Things with Windows 10

Saturday, October 10th, 2015 at 11:30 am in

This session will cover how you can become a “maker” using Windows 10 IoT Core. I’ll briefly cover how to set up tools for Win10 IoT development, and then demonstrate creating an application that reads sensor data and creates a real-time data stream over the Internet to mobile phones and wearable devices such as the Moto360 and Apple Watch.

High-Performance Win8 XAML using TPL, Async/Await, Dataflow, and Rx

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013 at 5:45 pm

This is an evolution of my code camp talk, and will likely be very similar to the NDC Oslo talk I’m doing next week. I will go over not TPL, Async/Await, Dataflow or Rx specifically, but how to receive thousands of messages a second and produce a similar amount of updates per second. Rx is used to capture data, Dataflow to aggregate it, TPL/async/await to code other parts. Also demonstrated will be the use of a Mediator to select prioritized thread pools to keep UI responsive and route commands to methods through the appropriate threading contexts.
