Interview with Ashley McNamara, Principal Developer Advocate at Microsoft | GALs

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 18:20:26 GMT

In this episode of GALs, Golnaz chats with Ashley McNamara, a Principal Developer Advocate at Microsoft. Ashley has been in the tech industry for almost 20 years. But not in the traditional sense. She spent a lot of her time teaching photoshop workshops, doing business mentoring and building websites. But in 2011, she decided to go all in with front-end development. She found herself working with OpenStack, learning Python, joining Rackspace, then becoming a huge contributor in the Linux and Go communities. She finally landed at Microsoft, weird right? Watch this video to learn more about how this Open Source Gopher joined one of the biggest enterprise companies in the world!

Kinecting to IoT

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 14:00:00 GMT

While the sun is setting on the Kinect, and this blog, there are a few interesting projects we're going to highlight first. Today's project is one of those...BCI-IOT: Brain Computer Interface X Internet of ThingsThe Smart Home future is rapidly arriving - the personal home is getting connected. Lamps, Fridges, Toasters, Stereos; everything these days is available with an internet connection that allows controlling and networking of different devices from a central hub, usually a smartphone app.I have been working on connecting lamps, LED strips and a bunch of sensors in my room for years now. I can come into my room and lights turn on automatically with different settings depending on weather and time. And when I leave home, they automatically turn off for me. However, I have always had one issue with my whole setup: A good old light switch is much faster and more natural to use than pulling out my phone, opening an app and toggling a switch.This is why I have been exploring different ways that allow a more natural and intuitive way of interacting with connected appliances.Introducing IOT-KINECTThe first step was an application written in Processing that interfaces with a Kinect depth sensor and any IOT hub capable of receiving commands via HTTP requests or websockets (in my case that is the brilliant and open source Home Assistant)....Next up: Brainy Things ...The exhibition...Once the two lamps were fully functional, I modified IOT-KINECT again to communicate with the Blynk Cloud, allowing it to toggle on and off those two very lamps. I then built a little exhibition room using black cloth and a few tables, beautifully hid the Kinect’s cables, and voila:...Fantastic.This project was by far the most interesting of my IoT - endeavours to this day. I learned a lot about brain waves, real space interaction and gesturing. However, it is far from being perfect. Right now, due to the Kinect’s relativeness, the user has to be roughly in the same spot every time they gesture at actuators. The bigger the actuators are defined in IOT-KINECT, the bigger the tolerance for that spot becomes - however, the likeliness of false triggers becomes larger too. By adding more Kinects to the space and defining actuators as actual, 3D objects in virtual space, the interaction could work regardless of the user’s physical location.In addition, by applying machine learning to higher resolution brain interface data and individual training for a given user, the number of possible, hands-free commands could be increased substantially. So called “mental commands” are certain patterns in one’s brain that an algorithm was trained to recognize as a given command. When you think of the color red, a similar pattern can be read every time - and a model trained to recognize that pattern along with the ones for other colors could for example allow you to point at an LED strip in your home and tint it with your mind alone.Project Information URL: http://creativecoding2.tumblr.com/post/163657812805/bci-iot-brain-computer-interface-x-internet-ofProject Download URL: [URL]Project Source URL: [URL]Follow @CH9Follow @Coding4FunFollow @gduncan411 [...]

With GameMaker Studio 2’s simple-to-use 2D toolset in hand, you can now quickly and directly publish your games to Xbox One consoles. The Creators Program’s minimum certification process has no requisite concept approval process. Once Xbox Live sign-in is implemented and Gamertags are displayed on the user interface (based on standard Windows Store policies), indie developers can easily bring their games to both PC and console environments......."Want to get started with GameMaker Studio? Sarah Jeanne Sexton has a great post just for you, taking you from the very start to your first game..Demystifying GameMaker StudioGameMaker Studio is a free, code-optional game engine. It creates 2-Dimensional games and is a well-documented tool that has been a staple in the independent games community for many years. The engine is robust, and a lot of well-known indie games have been made in it, such as Spelunky by Mossmouth and Undertale by Toby Fox. This Integrated Development Environment (IDE) includes an object editor for structuring workflow, a tabbed script editor, drag-and-drop features to enable game creation without going near code (hence the phrase “code-optional”), an extensive library of events and actions, and code preview tools for the GameMaker programming language (GML), based on C.To get started making 2D games on a PC right away, just look up “GameMaker Studio Yoyo Games” or visit http://yoyogames.com.

Continuous delivery of infra to Azure | Microsoft Azure OpenDev 10.2017

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 18:14:39 GMT

Tyler Croy, Director of Evangelism at CloudBees and Jenkins project board member, speaks at the 2nd edition of Azure OpenDev, a live community-focused series of technical demonstrations centered around building open source solutions on Azure. This episode features DevOps, which increases business agility by delivering business value to customers faster.

The Jenkins project hosts most of its infrastructure—a combination of Terraform, Kubernetes, and Puppet—in Azure. As an open source project, it automates the delivery of their own infrastructure-as-code, all of which is, of course, open source.

In this session, Tyler will show some live examples of infrastructure continuous delivery with Jenkins and Azure.

Contributing to open source (it’s not just about code) | Microsoft Azure OpenDev 10.2017

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 16:00:00 GMT

Ashley McNamara, Principle Developer Advocate at Microsoft, hosts the 2nd edition of Azure OpenDev, a live community-focused series of technical demonstrations centered around building open source solutions on Azure.  This episode features DevOps, which increases business agility by delivering business value to customers faster. Ashley introduces this edition by sharing her lessons learned as a member of the Go community as well as tips on how you can get involved in the Go community.

Before becoming a Gopher, Ashley was a professional photographer. However, she found that photography wasn't paying the bills, and so she turned to programming. She was writing Python and working as a Community Manager at Rackspace when she met a Gopher who would completely change her trajectory.

In 2014, Steve Francia (@spf13) inspired her to abandon Python and never look back. He had been teaching an introductory course to Go and urged Ashley to help teach the course, where her fresh perspective was an asset. Ever since then, she has been a valued member of the Go community and a key contributor to its growth. What follows are her lessons learned as well as tips on how you can get involved in the Go community.
