Spoken @ DevDays 2009 NL – download is online: .NET & hardware – capture video & control servos, in a fun application

Posted by jpluimers on 2009/06/02

Last week I spoke at the GeekNight of the Dutch Microsoft DevDays 2009.
A great conference, signalling two important industry wide trends:

  • Cloud computing
  • Natural user interfaces

There were many interesting presentations on both, and we are only at the beginning of those trends: interesting times are ahead!

My presentation (.NET & hardware – capture video & control servos, in a fun application) was as a GeekNight session.
That imposed geeky stuff, but in addition it addressed an important point: there will be many more means of interaction.
In particular, my ‘geek’ combination of hardware and software would react on movements seen by the webcam by pointing the beam of the laserpointer towards the largest area that moved.

After that I enjoyed the long Pentecost weekend (yes, the monday after Pentecost is a Holiday in the Netherlands, so most people have a day off then).

Today I updated my Conferences, seminars and other public appearances page with my DevDays materials to download.

It contains both the sourcecode, and the presentation in English.

Enjoy the download :-)
