We are happy to announce that Iris Classon is coming to Cheltenham on Tuesday 18th June. I would like to give you the opportunity to choose which talk you would be most interested to hear from her by Monday 3rd June.
Iris Classon website can be found at www.irisclasson.com, or you can follow her on twitter @IrisClasson
See the full detail of the session proposed below in this post.
Taking the Leap into the touch less future with Leap Motion
The motion tracking device that even Tom Cruise in Minority Report would envy back in 2002. With the air gesture controlled apps at our door step and the Leap Motion leading the way, this is a session you don’t want to miss. I’ll demonstrate the device, go through its inner workings, the API’s and the air store. But even more important- there will be code. Let’s bring the future to life for a Minority Report 2013 inspired session.
Portable Class Libraries for multiplatform targeting
Imagine a world where the .Net developer can create and compile code that will run on multiple .Net platforms. The same code runs on WP, WPF, SL, Xbox, Windows Store apps. A little hidden gem in Visual Studio 2012 allows you to do just that. In this session I introduce you to this modest but powerful gem, Portable Class Libraries, what they do, how they work, and even more important how you can make it work for you.
WinRT development in C#
Prepare for a rather intense and technical session where we go through what you need to develop for the Windows Store. While introducing you to the core concepts we will go through (among other things) the what is key for developing on the WinRT platform, possibilities and limitations, tools available, tools needed, terms and concepts.
At the end of the session you will have a good understanding for Windows Store App development and how to get started.
Painting a perfect picture: Nutrition, fitness, programming and future tech
What would happen if you were to mix clinical nutrition, pro fitness, code and cool tech together? Since I took the step over from nutrition and fitness to programming I’ve dreamt up many applications that would leverage that knowledge. In this session I want to show you how what we do combined with the possibilities found in (for example) NFC and motion tracking devices, combined with domain expertise, can change people’s life forever- and more important actually save lives. Prepare for an inspiring session.
Cooking up a perfect question: 365 Stupid questions later
What can we learn from 365 stupid questions? And what does this have to do with cooking and food? Over a year ago I started asking a daily stupid question, to make sure no question goes unanswered and to learn something new every day. We go beyond the answers and take a look at the science behind asking questions, information gathering, why we have opinions and how they can affect us, and why some questions triggered bigger responses than others (and the top ten) while I explain how cooking, food and identity works in the same way. It’s about cooking up the perfect question, and that is exactly what I will be doing during this session (not only metaphorically, but for real).
iOS to WinRT: Windows Store App development for iOS developers
Prepare for a rather intensive and technical session where we go through what you need to know as an iOS developer to develop for the Windows Store. While introducing you to the core concepts we will go through (among other things) the main differences between the iOS and the WinRT platform, possibilities and limitations, tools available, tools needed, terms and concepts. At the end of this session you will have a basic understanding for Windows Store App development and how to advance.
Near Field Communication in Windows Phone 8
In this session we answer the questions about NFC, what is it, and how does it work. How can we use it, how is it being used, and how does the C# implementation look like?
Windows Phone 8- the advanced session for the creative child at heart
Now if kids and teenagers, the future customers, got to decide what kind of apps we would make, now what would that be? I asked a group of kids and teenagers, and put together an advanced session on Windows Phone 8 based of their responses, showcasing the cool advanced features of WP8 in a way that will hopefully bring out the kid in you. Be ready for a playful session!
The survey will close 2 weeks before the event. Please response by Monday 3rd June.
