At this year’s Future Decoded event in a couple of weeks I will be speaking with the half-man-half-sofware-legend that is Andy Wigley on the topics of developing for Windows 10 and the UWP in the Anniversary Edition (1607) of Windows.
We’ll be looking at lots of areas that are new/changed in Anniversary Edition over and above what was present in earlier versions. This adds up to 3 afternoon breakout sessions making for 3 hours of UWP and Windows 10 development at Future Decoded.
We’d love to see you there, click the banner below to register (it’s free);
We look forward to seeing people there on the day and I’ve pasted the abstract descriptions for the sessions below;
Just a pointer to some links for upcoming events around Azure/Web;
There’s a bunch of posts on the site around the Kinect for Windows V2 but as part of getting ready for the Kinect for Windows Hack London;
Dan asked whether I’d help with a few “getting started” materials (beyond the excellent info that’s already in the SDK with samples and so on).
One part of that was putting together the post below;
Get Set Up For Kinect for Windows V2 Development
which is meant to be a way of getting your device set up for Kinect development as quickly as possible.
The next step is to start building out some code and the SDK supports you in doing lots of different things including;
- Building desktop applications in .NET or C++
and I thought I’d put together the same ‘Hello World’ sample in a few of those technologies walking through from scratch what it looks like to put something together which gathers body data from the Kinect for Windows V2 sensor and displays it in a simple way.
Here’s the 3 videos…
Windows Store App in C# with Windows/XAML
Windows Desktop App in C# with WPF
Enjoy! and remember, the emphasis here was definitely on ‘quick’ rather than ‘robust’
