Using a Wi-Fi enabled micro-controller that is the size of a matchbook, we can attach sensors to gather information about the world around us. We can then take that data and publish that up into cloud services for either online archival, real-time analytics, building predictive models, or using visualization software to create new insights into the date that we are gathering. We are going to show you exactly how to do that using the Particle Photon and the Microsoft Azure Cloud. We will do this using a project known as the Internet of Trees. A project that uses solar power to capture readings from multiple soil sensors attached to a variety of fruit trees and publish them into Azure Storage for perusal in Power BI.

The Web is broken - time to fix it! While at DevIntersection in Orlando, Carl and Richard sat down with Douglas Crockford to talk about the problems the web has and what can be done about them. Doug rightfully focuses on how the web was never intended to do what its doing - it was meant for sharing academic papers, and has far outgrown that initial requirement. Security is the key, and security with the least amount of trust is best. How do we build something inherently secure and still easy to work with?
How do you know your systems are compliant with security and industry standards like CIS, SOX, HIIPA, PCI and so on? Chef evangelist Jessica DeVita talks to Richard about the free Chef compliance tools that can help you understand where your systems are exposed and help get you into a compliant state - and stay there. If your only check of compliance is an audit, things are going to be rough. Audits are just spotchecks, not comprehensive evaluations, and it takes time to get things into order. Having a system that can continuously check compliance state, even as code is being written, makes life much, much simpler. Check it out!

What do developers need to know about information security? Carl and Richard talk to Kim Carter about his experiences helping developers secure their web sites. Kim has written a series of books on the subject to help get developers thinking about infosec as they develop, rather than try and cram security on at the end of a project. All kinds of great tools in the show links, including OWASP ZAP, which does fast penetration testing on your site - you can incorporate it into your build process so that your code is security tested as you're building it! InfoSec isn't optional, you need to make it part of your routine development process!

In this video Deepu Thomas lays down the real scoop behind the Windows Subsystem for Linux. There was a lot of speculation surrounding how this feature actually worked so I decided to find out. This architectural overview gets into exactly how an operating system separates functionality into user and kernel mode. Deepu then uses that understanding to show how this new subsystem works in that context. The whole explanation is thoroughly enlightening and often stretched my understanding of how the underlying operating system works. Accompanying blog post Guthub (issues) UserVoice (feature voting)
In this episode Chris Risner is joined by Ashish Kurmi, developer on the Azure App Service team. Ashish joins us to talk about adding custom domains and SSL certificates to Azure App Services. Ashish starts by demonstrating how to purchase a new Custom Domain from within the Azure portal. This is easily found by navigating to the Settings for your Azure App Service and finding Custom Domains and SSL. Purchasing a domain can be done completely within the Azure portal and makes use of GoDaddy's registrar services behind the scenes. Once a domain is purchased, it is a top level resource which can be used anywhere within Azure. Ashish also demonstrates using it with Traffic Manager. We also look at how to access advanced DNS settings from the portal. Ashish then goes into how to purchase, verify, and assign an SSL Certificate for your App Services.

Concorde is gone, what will replace it? Time for a Geek Out! Richard talks about the aeronautical evolution that led to supersonic airliners, Concorde being the big one that flew from 1976 to 2003. What went wrong? Why did it stop flying? Besides the technological challenges, it all comes down to the sonic boom and laws that make it illegal to fly a civilian aircraft above the speed of sound. Richard talks about how technology has advanced enough now that aircraft can mitigate their sonic boom with specific shapes and flying capabilities. However, in the end, supersonics only get you there faster, typically for more money. Would you pay for to go faster?

Note: I gave this talk 5 years(!) ago at REMIX (remember that?!) - just before all these VR, AI, ambient computing, surveillance culture and drone stuff starting blowing up. So it's funny to look back and see which predictions fell flat and which controversial statements at the time just sound like common sense today. Now with VAMR and AI emerging, I think it may be even more relevant today. Hollywood draws first blood for many emerging technologies by conditioning people with visual and experiential cues of what the future is supposed to look like. So even though the technology we are releasing may be in fact to the first of its kind, that doesn't mean people haven't already seen it in science fiction based movies, books or comics and more importantly, don't have preconceived expectations of how it should behave. The need for experience architects that can facilitate the flow between engineering and design is needed now more than ever.
An age of more personal computing is upon us, but is our intuition around technology and design up to the challenge? In this sweeping talk across More Personal Computing and the Mobile First / Cloud first revolution, a new software design landscape emerges. Rick Barraza explains how fundamental shifts in computation, artificial intelligence and mixed reality are transforming everything we thought we knew about design and the future of software. UPDATE Due to positive feedback from the original audience, Rick Barraza agreed to create a series of Volumetric Coding tutorials for Unity as a precursor to planned More Personal Computing + Unity deep dives later this year. Watch the first series of tutorials for volumetric coding in Unity for here: https://channel9.msdn.com/Series/UnityCreativeCoding For more updates, you can follow @rickbarraza on twitter.

How has hardware evolved when it comes to the Internet of Things? While at Build 2016 in San Francisco, Carl and Richard sat down with Jon Bruner from O'Reilly SOLID Con about his experience watching and working with the makers of hardware for IoT. Jon dug into the challenges of making production IoT stuff, especially going to China to get things made at scale. Automation is taking hold in that space, soon where it's done won't matter all that much. The conversation also explores additive and subtractive manufacturing with CNC milling machines, laser sintering and more. Lots of cool hardware ideas!
How do you manage your infrastructure like its code? Enter the release pipeline! Richard chats with Steven Murawski and Michael Greene about their recent white paper on the Release Pipeline Model. The conversation digs into the stages of developing and management configuration-as-code, including source code management, building, testing and deploying. There's a ton of tooling around each of these aspects, what you choose is very personal - and it makes sense to use what you already have onsite. Michael and Steven also dig into crisis management - taking advantage of the pipeline to respond more effectively when there are problems, and to help make sure those problems never happen again!
