Adding Machine Learning to the Mix(ed Reality)
Trekanten, Thursday 10:05 - 10:55

Mixed Reality is when you mix the real world with a computer-generated world. What if we can throw in AI into the mix? In this session, we will explore how you can use Azure Cognitive services together with Mixed Reality (HoloLens) to make our life easier and perhaps even save lives.

WebAssembly in Blazor glory
Katrinebergssalen, Friday 15:40 - 16:30

Creating an interactive website today takes a lot of effort. You need to know a bunch of frameworks, languages and tools like Angular, React, JavaScript, Web pack, NPM, Bower, the list is long. New JavaScript frameworks pops up every minute, which one is the right one?….today?.

What if there is a way to develop interactive websites without having to learn all these things? What if there is a way to develop in only one language, in C#? What if there is a way to do all that without using any Web Browser plugin? In this session I will show you what I believe to be the future of web development, Web Assembly. WebAssembly is supported in all major web browser, yes all of them. And thanks to Blazor you can develop web assembly sites using C#.

Ever since Jimmy got his first ZX Spectrum at the age of 7 he hasn’t stopped programming. During the day he is an .NET developer and he does all the fun stuff during his spare time. Together with his wife he also runs a company ”azm dev” which is focused on HoloLens and windows development. He is really passionate about Windows development, HoloLens or well you could say the .NET platform really. He and his wife (Jessica) also runs a code intensive user group (Coding After Work) that focuses on helping participants with code and design problems, and a podcast with the same name. Back in 2011 he received the ”geek of the year” award, a title well deserved. He is certainly living up to the title with everything from developing and gadgets to superheroes and cosplaying at the sci-fi fair. He speaks at various types of events including NDC, Devsum, hackathons, Swetugg and TechDays which led to him becoming a Microsoft MVP in Windows Development.

He occasionally blogs at www.apeoholic.se.
