I’m all for copyright and patent law, but some of the awarded copyrights (and patents!) are just simply
RI-DICU-LOUS. In my opinion this has always been one of them.

Dear Judge: Thank you for your display of sanity.
Today is turning into a really bad day for the majority of the mobile industry. First I noticed this #EpicFail…
To hack an Android phone, just type in a really long password
… and right on it’s heels came this one:
Hundreds of legitimate iOS apps infected by malware; remove from App Store
I notice that Windows Phone hasn’t been mentioned yet; here to hoping it stays that way.
I had a great time during my
Dev’ing with Cortana for the Win(10)! presentation at Code Impact 2015 today. Hopefully the folks who attended my session got something out of it too.
materials I presented today are available here: http://1drv.ms/1AKnuJ8.

I had the pleasure of speaking to a GREAT group this evening (8/18) about Cortana. As promised,
here are the materials that we covered, as well as some source code.

* IMPORTANT NOTE: You’ll need Visual Studio 2015 to run the code. (Don’t worry, it’s free!)
Just ran across this one today… and it’s telling me what I already suspected but didn’t want to admit to myself.

Time to make some changes, neh?
You know, I really love a LOT of the things that Microsoft is doing in just about every space that they operate in. However, one thing that consistently disappoints me is that the people writing most of their technical documentation have a VERY BAD habit of leaving crucial bits out of their “how-tos”. Once such victim is how to integrate the Identity Management Framework with SendGrid in Windows Azure.
Thankfully someone else has had to deal with this issue (I simply knew I couldn’t be the first person) and they wrote up a good tutorial on how to deal with this little diddy.
Of course some things have changed since it was originally written on 9/28/2014… but it’s still about 95% accurate. Special thanks to Max Vasilyev for his hard work — which saved my Saturday afternoon.
I had the honor of presenting one of my favorite topics (#Cortana!) at
Tampa Code Camp. As promised the materials I presented from (minus the witty banter and EXCELLENT interaction with the group) are available here.
UPDATE: I just remembered that if you want the “Weather” example to work you need to follow the instructions in the following file: IntegratingCortant.Win10.Universal\Extensions\GeopositionExpressions.cs
