October 3, 2017

There is something cool coming up! But who could explain it better than Jeff Teper?

You heard him right – a full day training, deep dive, one topic – for free! Global Office 365 Developer Bootcamps around the world:

Please join Microsoft MVPs Stefano Tempesta and Max Melcher for an all-day workshop in Microsoft Teams and Azure Bot Framework development!

To be successful in this workshop, you should have a general understanding of Office 365 and an ability to code in JavaScript/.NET. From there, you’ll learn the technologies Microsoft Teams and the Bot Framework are built on!

Based on that foundation, you’ll learn how to develop production-quality Azure Bots for use in enterprise solutions or product offerings. You’ll also learn to use and extend Microsoft Teams. The day will also include an overview of other development opportunities in Office 365, which can provide a tailored collaboration and productivity environment for end users.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn the latest Office 365 development technologies!

Microsoft Ignite 2016 – Innovation Keynote

27 Sep 2016
September 27, 2016

Satya Nadella on the stage again, this time talking about the current vision of Microsoft.


Digital Transformation

Satya starts to give an idea of AI in context of digital transformation. Create more personal computing, build the intelligent cloud, reinvent productivity & business processes!

The four core pillars for the “AI democratisation” for Sataya are: Agents, Applications, Services and Infrastructure.


Demo: Intelligent Agent – Cortana

Cortana will be more integrated, LinkedIn integration, reminders based on emails, health insights, integration into the action center of windows 10, add items to wunderlist, intelligent sticky notes.



Swiftkey saves humanity a years of lifetime entering keystrokes – now it uses neural networks to predict your next words across all devices.

A keyboard is no longer attached to a device – its attached to YOU

Office 365

AI will come to Office 365 in a multitude of ways. Focused inbox – the system will learn from your emails to provide greater value for you. Skype Translator: 8 languages are now supported, neural networks are behind the translation to not only translate but understand the language. Delve Analytics will be renamed to “MyAnalytics” (?!) and will analyse your activities in your workplace, meeting times, email times etc. Same improvements come to Dynamics CRM – everything graph based. Support based on a bot is already available behind Microsoft support services, always with the option to escalate to a real human.


Services – Cortana Applications

Satya starts with the Bot Framework. Parsing and understanding natural language is provided as framework to be used everywhere. Small demo with fantasy football (i am lost here) were the bot tells how to change the team and gives arguments why player x is better than player y.


Cognative Services API: World record for speech recognition and image/object recognition. UBER uses the image recognition to detect the drivers – they literally have to take a selfie before the drive is being tracked – and to increase driver and passenger security. VOLVO uses cognitive services to detect distractions while using their cars eg. a cell phone.


Finally we see the HoloLens on stage – LOWE’S is the customer showcase here to improve customer experience. Here a couple customized a kitchen live on stage, colors of the blends, adding cupboards, adjusting sizes – shopping on a totally new level. A was too excited to take a good picture…

Infrastructure – Azure

Global, trusted, intelligent, from silicon to cloud. CPU and GPU farms with a multitude of frameworks to build AIs and scale.


Next is a demonstration of the worlds first AI supercomputer – first demo was image recognition, with FPGAs it was 40x faster. Text translation was next, 8x faster. With hyper-scaling Microsoft could translate the entire Wikipedia in just a glimpse.

The speaker did not mention Skynet… 🙂


Very impressive keynote at Ignite 2016, some really interesting ideas that will change our lives in the not too distant future – cool stuff is possible and coming!
