Hanselminutes on 9 - Bill Steele talks about 3D Printing with Makerbot Replicators and more

por Microsoft

I was at CodeMash and talked to Bill Steele about 3D printing. He had a few 3D printers at the event, even one that he'd printed with another 3D printer! 

If you haven't seen a 3D printer in person, you really need to check it out. It's amazing. In this video Bill not only explains how these amazing things work but also gives me a closeup look at the objects being printed. He talks about the MakerBot but also alternative designs to the MakerBot that enable even larger items to be printed.

The future is now and it will be printed in 3D.

Hanselminutes on 9 - Electron Microscopes, WPF, and PhDs in Tiny Things with AppFive

por Microsoft

I visited Arizona and spoke at the AZGroups event with Scott Guthrie and Brady Gaster. While I was there my friend Eric Herbrandson (you might remember him from ScratchAudio and Hanselminutes) invited my wife and the kids over to the AppFive offices to check out their Electron Microscope. This isn't a tiny microscope...it's huge but it looks at tiny things all using WPF software that's written by AppFive. Forgive the cell phone video, this was originally intended as just a bit of video for myself but I thought you guys might enjoy it as well.

Hanselminutes on 9 - The Eddie Robotics Platform with Kinect

por Microsoft

I was at CodeMash in Ohio last week and saw this robot moving around the conference floor. I was lucky to get a nice demo and play with "Eddie" for a bit. You can even buy an Eddie of your own. There's lots of great information on Eddie and his coming out party at MakerFaire last year on the web. The platform is a very interesting and open one. Now, how do I convince the wife that this is a good idea?

Eddie was programmed by Lwin Maung and Min Maung. Our blogs can be found at www.maungs.com.
Eddie is created by Parallax (www.parallax.com/eddie) and programmed using Microsoft Visual Programming Language and Robotic Studio (www.microsoft.com/robotics).

Lwin Maung: Lwin is a mobile developer and an expert on mechatronics. His mobile applications have been featured on technology sites such as engadget, gizmodo, and pocket now. He has also designed and created programmable microcontrollers and robots for educational use from the ground up. When he is not cranking out code, you can find him teaching or speaking to development community on mechatronics, mobile and application development.

Min Maung: In his "spare" time, Min is a skilled cross-platform mobile developer, aggressive hackathon competitor and technical speaker and when he is not coding, he is building robots. Monday thru Friday, you can find Min at a leading, privately-held payroll and HR software solutions company cranking out .net code and writing apps in ASP.Net, Silverlight, and other .net solutions.

Hanselminutes on 9 - "Glimpse" at the Mix11 Open Source Fest

por Microsoft

Scott Hanselman and Phil Haack visited the "Open Source Fest" at Mix 11 in Las Vegas just a few months ago. One of the projects that really stood out - amongst the dozens of great projects shown - was Glimpse.

Glimpse is a server-side NuGet package that plugs into ASP.NET (and other technologies soon) and adds a client-side almost "Firebug"-style UI that gives you amazing insights into your web application. It's gotta be seen to be understood and appreciated.

This is raw footage, to be clear, but it's fun. We start talking at the beginning and are a little silly, but we quickly move out into the hallway and can hopefully be better heard over the din.

Learn more about Glimpse at http://getglimpse.com and follow Anthony van der Hoorn (@anthony_vdh) and Nik Molnar (@nikmd23) on Twitter!

Hanselminutes on 9 - Raw Backstage footage before the Mix11 keynote with Jonathan Carter

por Microsoft

Scott and Jonathan Carter are freaking out backstage at Mix11. What's it look like? How much of the demos are real? (Most of it!) What's involved in prepping for contigencies if a demo fails? All this and more, backstage at Mix11.

Hanselminutes on 9 - Agile Coach Jean Tabaka on Safe Failure, the Need for Craftsmanship, and More

por Microsoft

Scott's at the Intel Agile Conference today and got the chance to talk to Rally Software's Agile Fellow Jean Tabaka about why your project sometimes needs time to fail and whether we need both internships and a formal track within Software Development.

Jean is a Certified ScrumMaster and Practitioner, a Certified ScrumMasterTrainer, and a Certified Professional Facilitator. She holds a Masters in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University and is the author of Collaboration Explained: Facilitation Skills for Software Project Leaders, published in the Addison-Wesley Agile Software Development Series. More importantly, she's scary smart, fantastically approachable, and a joy to hang out with.

All this, plus Robby the Robot. Enjoy.

Hanselminutes on 9 - Digging into Entity Framework 4 Code First (Magic Unicorn Edition)

por Microsoft

Scott is in Redmond this week and talks to Jeff Derstadt, the Lead Developer on Entity Framework Code First (or, as Scott says, EF Magic Unicorn). What's the deal with this new feature in Entity Framework? What about the bad rap that EF got back in the day? What's new in EF4 and how does EF Code First sit on that? Which is the right choice, Model First, Database First or Code First? All of this plus demos in this off-the-cuff interview.

(Sorry the first part of the video is dark, it gets lighter halfway through.)

Hanselminutes on 9 - Phil Haack, Ted Neward, Two Friends and Qdoba

por Microsoft

In this found video (I found it on my Windows 7 Phone, oops!) Scott is at Qdoba with Phil Haack, Ted Neward and two other gentlemen whose names escape me. As I recall, the conversation became so interesting that I had to pull out my phone and start recording the raw footage. That footage is here, remainging raw. We talk about Testing, Culture, Microsoft, Agile and Tacos.

Hanselminutes on 9 - Random Visit with Clint Rutkas

por Microsoft

Scott's found video on his phone, and lo and behold, it's a guerilla video of Scott acosting Clint Rutkas in his Channel 9 lair. What's all that equipment on Clint's shelves? What's he erasing and trying to hid from us? Does he solder in his office? All this and less.

Hanselminutes on 9 - Gadget Basement with Ward Cunningham

por Microsoft

Scott stopped by Ward Cunningham (you know, the guy who invented the Wiki. Yes, that Ward Cunningham) to hang out, and discovered Ward's treasure trove of electronics, software, soldering guns and web accessible sensor arrays that run 24/7/365. Ever wish you had a real cool uncle that didn't take you fishing, but instead showed you how to create your own multi-processor computer with $2 chips off the shelf? Let's step into Uncle Ward's basement.

Hanselminutes on 9 - ASP.NET MVC 3 and NEW ASP.NET Futures with Phil Haack and Morgan the Intern

por Microsoft

Scott sneaks into the office of Phil Haack and Morgan the Canadian Intern to talk about the release of ASP.NET MVC 3 Preview 1 and some of the cool "futures" stuff that Morgan (and our fleet of interns) is working on.

Hanselminutes on 9 - Social Networking for Developers - Part 1 - Every Developer Needs a Blog

por Microsoft

In this talk, I propose that EVERY developer needs a blog.
In 2009, I presented a talk at Wintellect's Devscovery conference called "Social Networking for Developers." My postulate was that EVERY developer should be using Social Networking, and this talk I gave was my introduction of this idea to a large group. This was the keynote for the conference. I finally got ahold of the source recordings (only guerilla recordings had been available previously) and as even those recordings were popular, so I'm preserving these talks here as a way of encouraging more discussion.
Be sure to watch Part 2 after this one.

Hanselminutes on 9 - "Razor," IIS Express, SQL 4 Compact Edition and VS2010 Tooling with Damian Edwards

por Microsoft

Scott's in Redmond this week and chats with developer Damian Edwards about "Razor," IIS Express, SQL 4 Compact Edition and VS2010 Tooling. 
ScottGu recently announced all of these cool new developer tools, and folks at Microsoft are actively working on integration with Visual Studio 2010 and one of those folks is Damian. What's he got to show Scott today?

Hanselminutes on 9 - Trip Montage - If this is Tuesday, this must be Cairo.

por Microsoft

This last week over a 7 day period, I went to Munich, Cairo and Dubai. I presented in three keynotes and did a total of 10 sessions. I crossed 12 time zones and missed my kids. I talked to/with/at about 3000 people. 

I took some video while I was travelling with my Creative Vado HD and slapped it into Windows Live Movie Maker just now. Here's my trip montage.

You could call this either "The Glamourous Life of a Technical Speaker" or "If this is Tuesday, this must be Cairo" or "Scott needs to learn to say No."

Enjoy.

Hanselminutes on 9 - Embodied Social Proxies (and Remote Video Heads!) with Microsoft Research

por Microsoft

As a remote employee, I'll do anything to make my job easier and more importantly, to get folks at work to REMEMBER THAT I'M OUT HERE. You can only do so much with Video Chat. I just wish I had a physical presence on campus. Well, the folks at MSR (Microsoft Research) are doing some research into what they call "Embodied Social Proxies." Basically, how will a team's relationship with a remote work change if there is a physical stand-in (er, Embodied Social Proxy) that they can interact with. It's more than just a table with a webcam. Check out the video!

Hanselminutes on 9 - Follow up, 6 months later, with Chris Sells on Managing People and Your Time

por Microsoft

Last August my role at Microsoft changed a bit so I took Chris Sells to lunch at our local food court (where the lady at the Indian Restaurant always shakes the big piece of chicken off her serving spoon before she dishes my plate, but I'm not bitter) to talk about being a manager at Microsoft.
Chris leads a team and seems to get a lot done, so I figured it'd be a good idea. Check our our FIRST video interview from the August 2009 lunch here, then watch this FOLLOWUP Lunch from yesterday (about six months after the first) where I at first admit defeat, then go back into being in denial, then I leave to redouble my efforts. Enjoy the Wisdom of Chris Sells as he attempts to set me straight.

Hanselminutes on 9 - Guided Tour inside the Windows Azure Cloud with Patrick Yantz

por Microsoft

Scott at PDC09 in Los Angeles this week and got a great opportunity to get a guided tour of a piece of the Windows Azure Cloud from Patrick Yantz, a Cloud Architect with Data Center Services. You may think it's a Cloud Container, but it's not!
Join me on this very technical 15 minute deep dive inside the making of the hardware behind the Windows Azure Cloud.

Hanselminutes on 9 - Debugging Crash Dumps with Tess Ferrandez and VS2010

por Microsoft

I'm in Sweden this week and I got a chance to talk to legendary ASP.NET Debugger and Escalation Engineer Tess Ferrandez. In this video Tess shows me how to debug a dump of an ASP.NET Web Site with a pile of awesome and totally new features in Visual Studio 2010. I also talked to Tess for an extended Debugging 101 session on the full 30 minute audio edition of my Hanselminutes Podcast out later this week.

Hanselminutes on 9 - Spolsky, Atwood, Blyth, Hanselman = Crazy-Delicious || Content-Free?

por Microsoft

I spoke at the StackOverflow conference in San Francisco and Seattle this week (long week, let me tell you) and I got the opportunity to sit down with Jeff Atwood from CodingHorror and Joel Spolsky from Joel on Software, along with the man, the legend, Rory Blyth. The audio also appeared on the StackOverflow podcast in part, but here's the raw video from our backstage ramblings.
Warning: extreme ramblosity ahead!

  • Joel explains his Duct Tape Programmer post. Apparently DevDays is a duct tape conference, and this section of the recording is a duct tape podcast.
  • Some discussion of the ubiquity of mobile code. Also, if you are nostalgic for the era “when development was hard”, the consensus is that you should be doing mobile development today on iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, or Symbian.
  • Rory elaborates on his experience with (and effusive opinions on) iPhone development to date. Is coding in Objective-C best accompanied by a flux capacitor, New Coke, and Max Headroom? Also, his excitement for MonoTouch.
  • Joel and Scott put on their amateur language designer hats and have a spirited discussion of type inference and Fog Creek’s in-house DSL, Wasabi.
  • Scott covers some of the highlights of new and shiny features coming in the Visual Studio 2010 IDE, the C# 4.0 language, and the ASP.NET MVC 2.0 web framework.

Hanselminutes on 9 - ASP.NET 4 and David Ebbo on Dynamic Data for Older Apps

por Microsoft

It's time for a pile of "Hanselminutes on 9" Episodes, Dear Reader! Recently, I spent a day wandering around building 42 trying to dig up the scoop on Visual Studio 2010 and ASP.NET 4.
In this episode, I sit down with David Ebbo. He shows me a feature I didn't see coming! He takes an older-style ASP.NET 2.0 application and upgrades it to ASP.NET 4. He then enables the GridView with Dynamic Data features...but without adding any references or changing the web.config. He adds validation in seconds. You can maintain legacy apps *and* add new functionality, it seems!

Hanselminutes on 9 - ASP.NET 4 and Brad Wilson on MVC 2

por Microsoft

It's time for a pile of "Hanselminutes on 9" Episodes, Dear Reader! Recently, I spent a day wandering around building 42 trying to dig up the scoop on Visual Studio 2010 and ASP.NET 4.
In this episode, Brad Wilson shows the new Templated Helpers in ASP.NET 2, Areas, and David Ebbo drops in. Scott also does a very bad impression of Dmitry (the boss.)

Hanselminutes on 9 - ASP.NET 4 and Cleaner Markup with Scott Galloway

por Microsoft

It's time for a pile of "Hanselminutes on 9" Episodes, Dear Reader! Recently, I spent a day wandering around building 42 trying to dig up the scoop on Visual Studio 2010 and ASP.NET 4.
In this episode, Scott Galloway espouses the importance of cleaner markup, shows some new controls and some HTML 5 spikes he's playing with.

Hanselminutes on 9 - ASP.NET 4 and Stephen Walther on AJAX

por Microsoft

It's time for a pile of "Hanselminutes on 9" Episodes, Dear Reader! Recently, I spent a day wandering around building 42 trying to dig up the scoop on Visual Studio 2010 and ASP.NET 4.
In this episode, the Boss Dmitry interrupts Scott and Stephen a number of times with actual work while they dive into how ASP.NET AJAX 4 works. What's this? MSAjax controls exposed as jQuery plugins? What planet is this?

Hanselminutes on 9 - ASP.NET 4 and Phil Haack (and son!)

por Microsoft

It's time for a pile of "Hanselminutes on 9" Episodes, Dear Reader! Recently, I spent a day wandering around building 42 trying to dig up the scoop on Visual Studio 2010 and ASP.NET 4. In this episode, Phil Haack and his son are attending the Patterns and Practices Summit on campus. Does Phil work on more than just ASP.NET MVC? Turns out he does, and he gives us a little insight into the work the ASP.NET 4 team is doing.
