    Codechat 071 - Fusion 360 Tip: Designing on a Face

    Codechat 071 - Fusion 360 Tip: Designing on a Face

    Fusion 360 by Autodesk is my application of choice for making things - real things - plastic and metal and wood things. I've often found myself wanting to select a face in my design and do some fancy 2D graphics on that face, but the sketch environment in Fusion 360 is pretty basic. I finally figured out a good workflow for exporting a face from my 3D design, drawing in 2D on a replica of that face in my vector editor of choice, and then easily bringing my new drawing back in to Fusion 350... perhaps to initiate an extrusion. Hopefully this is helpful to you when making things.

    CodeChat 070 - Meet the Interns

    CodeChat 070 - Meet the Interns

    The energy and enthusiasm level of a single intern is inspiring to me, so I was glad to get three recent Microsoft interns into Studio C at Channel 9 for a little code chat about their experience coming onboard at Microsoft as intern evangelists. It's really fun to hear what technology-related university degree programs are like these days and what your options are as a new university student. It's been a long time since my university studies, but although little has changed with the actual degree offerings, it's a whole different world for prospective technologists.

    CodeChat 069 - Blockchain All the Things!

    CodeChat 069 - Blockchain All the Things!

    As you may know, I'm pretty excited about blockchain technology. It's a super creative algorithm. It's interesting how a system that distributes data (or in many cases logic too) actually gives all of the participants more ownership and authenticity in their own data. My guest on the show today is Cale Teeter (@windozer) who knows a lot about blockchain and is happy to answer my questions to help us all come to a good understanding. Enjoy.

    CodeChat 068 - A Broad View of Machine Learning

    CodeChat 068 - A Broad View of Machine Learning

    Rick Barraza (@rickbarraza) works in the AI space at Microsoft, and is particularly good at communicating the concepts of the seemingly (and actually) complex world of machine learning. In this interview, Rick clarifies the terms machine learning (ML), deep neural networks (DNN), and artificial intelligence (AI), and attempts to cast a vision for this technology in the near and distant future. And an exciting future it is!

    CodeChat 067 - The Latest, Greatest Features of C# 7.0

    CodeChat 067 - The Latest, Greatest Features of C# 7.0

    Mark Michaelis - Microsoft RD from Spokane - is back on the show to talk about the latest version of C#. C# version 7.0 is totally a thing and with it come a number of cool features like tuples and deconstruction. According to Mark, none of the enhancements are earth shattering or code breaking, but they will eventually change the way you author your project. Mark has a great way of relaying what's important to developers today. I hope you enjoy this episode. Happy coding.
