Photos of new Microsoft Surface units on 3/21/2012

clock April 2, 2012 06:42 by author scottker

I was recently at the Microsoft office in Irvine, CA and noticed there is a new Microsoft Surface unit in the lobby.  You should pop over to the office and take a look at the unit, it is such a better piece of hardware and furniture compared to Surface1.  I want to build a bar around these units they are so cool.

The Microsoft Irvine office is located at:  3 Park Plaza, Suite 1600, Irvine, CA  92614   949-263-3000

If you are interested in getting applications developed for the Microsoft Surface, let me know.  There are some great partners who have already innovated that I can hook you up with.

Good times @ DevCamp 3/30/2012!!!

After a short emergency trip to the eye doctor last Friday I got to attend a little bit of our DevCamp @ USC.  We had a really good showing across all of the technologies we were presenting including HTML5 (Over 100), Windows Phone (Over 50) and Cloud (Over 50).  Based on our numbers, it seemed like students were a lot more interested in Phone than HTML5 or Cloud, go figure as that is where there is money to be made.

Here is a picture library of the event, enjoy!

Take your apps to the next level at the Windows Phone Dev Camp. We'll be covering how to bring the cloud to your app by consuming external APIs, add UX polish with Expression Blend, reach new markets through globalization and localization, and keep your app running at peak performance through advanced debugging and testing. In the afternoon, we'll break into labs to reinforce what we covered, and offer a chance to present your application for a chance to win in our application competition.

As developers, you keep hearing a lot about HTML5, but many don't know what it actually means or is truly capable of. If you want to learn about it, your choices are limited. The HTML5 Web Camp is an opportunity to connect with designers and developers and show you what's possible, and how you can start using it today. Space is limited.

A long hard road back...

clock March 28, 2012 12:51 by author scottker

At long last I've got my blog up and running again.  Because of all the blog spammers out there and a little configuration issue with my blog, I had over 182,000 spam blog entry comments.  They are all gone now and my blog is up and running again.  FINALLY!
