Microsoft DECODED Show Season 2 to kick off with special screening in SF
Microsoft announces the premier of the second season of the DECODED Show to air on Wednesday, August 23 at 6PM PST with tickets still available for the special screening in San Francisco.
Always unorthodox and at times irreverent, the DECODED Show takes viewers around the globe and shares modern developer best practices.
For the launch of the second season, DECODED will host an event at Z SPACE in San Francisco with Host and Microsoft Chief Geek John Shewchuk, along with Executive Producer David Mendlen. Tickets for the drinks reception and screening are available here.
The new episodes will look under the hood at the most dynamic open source software in the world today, the people behind it, and the problems they use it to solve.
You may remember Shewchuk from his Virtual Keynote from Day 3 of the Microsoft Build Conference last May where he introduced many of the coding themes that will be debuting on the DECODED Show’s second season. These include using sensors to track snowboarding movements, machine learning to analyze those movements to detect how well skiers and snowboarders perform, and how computers will be the new virtual golf caddies on the links.
As host of the DECODED Show, Shewchuk has an uncanny way of translating complex code and bringing it down to Earth in a way that we can all relate to, and at times, even blow our minds. Once the coding aspect is explained, you can then see the real-world applications that are disrupting entire industries.
The last season of DECODED featured three episodes, and in each installment where we met a new developer and heard their master recipe for building modern applications.
This season has been green-lit for at least five episodes following more or less the same format. Check out the rundown below.
Episode 1 – BOTS
In the season opener, John Shewchuk and Microsoft Corporate Vice President and Chief Evangelist, Steve Guggenheimer, sit down with the distinguished engineer and brilliant mind behind the Microsoft BOT framework and hear from the innovators who are building on that framework to talk about robots, coding for intelligence, the future of AI, and all things BOTS.
Episode 2 – MACHINE LEARNING
The second episode highlights a new set of thought leaders to the roundtable to hear about what’s new, what’s being built, and what’s in store for the future of MACHINE LEARNING. The crew hits the slopes of Snowbird Utah with the US Ski and Snowboard Team to gather and analyze some unique performance data, sits down with the visionaries who are using machine learning to optimize the Agriculture industry, and chats with the innovators who are using machine learning to change the way we understand and play the game of golf.
Episode 3 – MIXED REALITY
Episode three takes us for a sit-down with two innovative teams who are working on Microsoft’s Mixed Reality headset, Hololens. One team is transforming the world of medicine and the other is changing the way we visualize the complex industries of oil and gas. We then take a dive into gaming and virtual reality with a look at the code behind the Oculus Rift, and see what’s in store for the future of MIXED REALITY.
Episode 4 – MODERN APP DEVELOPMENT
In the fourth episode we dive into the world of Kubernetes, Containers and Cloud computing and we sit down with the minds behind a data science initiative that is using software to transform the world’s energy supply. This includes chatting with a designer who is streamlining and modernizing container solutions to talk about what’s new and what’s in store for the future of MODERN APP DEVELOPMENT.
Episode 5 – TRAILBLAZERS
No! It’s not about the NBA franchise based in Portland, OR. In the fifth episode, we listen-in on a new set of thought leaders and tech trend setters to the roundtable who will share stories and lend some personal advice as they talk about their experience building some of the most successful and innovative start-up businesses today. These are the TRAILBLAZERS.
