In this episode, Robert is joined by Art Leonard, who explains how and why Visual Studio was rearchitected to support faster and more flexible installs. He discusses the Core Editor, breaking up the product into smaller parts, installing workloads, the ability to install multiple versions of Visual Studio (eg Pro and Enterprise) side-by-side, early access to new features with the Visual Studio Preview and more.(image)

In this episode, we are going to pick up where we left off by wrapping up the logic for displaying items in the players inventory. First, we will fill up the inventory slots with existing items that the player has, then we will populate their currency. After that, we'll make it so that the player can buy items from the merchant by hooking up an onClick event via code.
Note: After this video was recorded I created a few icons. You can get them off of the GitHub repo here.

In this episode, Golnaz sits down with the amazing Maria Naggaga, a Program Manager on the .NET team who loves to draw Afros at http://ladynaggaga.tumblr.com and help the younger dev generation use our platforms.
GALs is a show about the women who work in Tech (at Microsoft or outside) from three ladies that currently work on the Channel 9 team. Golnaz Alibeigi, Soumow Atitallah, and Kaitlin McKinnon have started a new series featuring women in Tech who work in development, management, marketing and research who have interesting stories to share about their success in the industry and ideas on how to grow diversity in IT.

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 13:00:00 GMTWhile creating a temperature and humidity IoT project is the IoT "Hello World," Marcel Meurer has put in a cool twist, connecting it to Azure and even PowerBI!Build your own IoT device with ESP8266 system-on-a-chip, Azure Event Hub, Stream Analytics and Azure StorageIoT is a big buzz word. I wanted to make it more tangible for me. So, I decided to build a small WiFi based sensor to monitor temperature and humidity, and to send these data to Azure. For my scenario at home I need less than 12 sensors, but the solution scales up to hundreds – even thousands – of sensors. That’s why I used Azure Event Hub and Stream Analytics.The sensor ESP8266-01 – WiFi SoCI want to build a very small sensor that can connect to my WiFi and execute a short program, as well. The System-on-a-Chip ESP8266-01 is ideal for this purpose. Its PCB Version 01 is flat and has a small form factor, less than 25mm x 15mm. The chip itself works with WiFi (including TCP/IP) and can be flashed with one’s own programs. It’s also brings two I/O ports (GPIO) to connect to – for example, a temperature/humidity sensor. In my case it’s a DHT22 – a digital temperature and humidity sensor. The ESP and the sensor together cost less than $7....Prepare the Arduino IDE to program the chipNow we can access the chip and send programs to it with the Arduino IDE. These programs are saved permanently and executed on start up. Open the Arduino IDE and include the board definition for ESP8266 chips: File -> Preferences -> Additional Boards Manager URLs and add http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json....Building Event Hub and Stream Analytics services for IoT dataIf it works as expected, we can now build our Azure services to collect data sent from our IoT device – after this we must extend our sketch to send data to the Event Hub.To receive data from sensors/IoT devices I use an Event Hub and a Stream Analytics service in Azure. I don’t use an IoT Hub because I only want to have a one-way transmission to the cloud and don’t need to control my sensor(s)....Generate a long-lasting authorization code for the sensorsThe sketch we built before must now be extended to send the data to Azure. But first we need an Authorization code to communicate with the REST API. We can create this code based on the saved connection string from the shared access policy “messages.”...Extend the sketch to send data to the Event HubTo send data to the Event Hub we must extend our sketch (see below). For this, we need some variables to configure the Azure connection:...And after a few minutes in the running Stream Analytics job you will see:...If you connect it to PowerBI, you can have these charts:...

Predictive modeling is a powerful way to add intelligence to your application. It enables applications to predict outcomes against new data. But being able to create a predictive model does not automatically make you app intelligent. You have to be able to consume your models and R code from your application. SQL Server R Services is a platform that enables you to operationalize your R code so that you can consume intelligence from any application. In this video, we'll go through how you can create a predictive model and operationalize with SQL Server R Services.(image)
