Build – Day one

Hello everyone, as always following tech events, here are my notes about the first day of Build 2016, hope this has any value for you!

Windows 10

  • 270 million people using Windows 10
  • Anniversary update, this summer for free for all Windows 10 installs
  • Windows Hello technology used in Microsoft Edge to login to Websites

Windows Ink

  • integration with Cortana (events, places),
  • Ruler integrated, Ink dashboard accessible from desktop,
  • Ink useable to highlight in Word, draw & align in Powerpoint

Hint from Windows Phone video: seems you will be able to receive AND make phone calls straight from your Windows Phone

Cortana fun fact: Shutting down computer with cortana, cortana work also fullscreen now

Bash shell in User Mode, Great dev feature!

xBox One

  • Anniv update brings apps to Xbox One
  • UWP for Windows 10 and Xbox One
  • Turning any Xbox One into a Dev Kit (switch with a reboot)

Dev: .NET & Win32 portability to Microsoft Store just by running a migration tool on top Desktop App Converter

Bots

  • Bring-in bots for a scoped chat, then action is done with 3rd party bot is done, info are not shared anymore
  • Skype bot sdk (http://skype.com/developer)
  • Intelligence runtime (Cortana intelligence suite)
  • Bot dev framework (node, C#,…)
  • Bot framework help on filling in entities
  • Numerous integrations (Direct line, Skype, Slack, SMS, Telegram, Web chat, Email)
  • manages verbs (get suggestion for verbs, deep learning on language)
  • Semantic dict, upload training data, terms mapping to learn more
  • Capability to forward to a person

I am especially looking into using more deeply the Bot framerwork capabilities to build self-service layers for users!
