The Wonders of the Windows Phone Speech APIs

#FREESTUFF ALERT: Our awesome Nokia Ambassador is providing cool DVLUP swag!!!

Pizza and networking starts at 6pm


Sick and tired of the fruit-folks going on and on about how great Siri is? Aggravated by those robot fanatics screaming about how awesome "Do a barrel roll!" is? Still dreaming of that StarTrek-like "Computer..." experience? 

The wait is over! Now YOU can QUICKLY implement that contextual experience everyone is raving about! We will discuss the building blocks necessary to get your next big idea (using voice integration) off the ground. We'll even walk through a practical, real world implementation to prove just how fast it can be done.

    It was a pleasure seeing some (again) and meeting the rest of you! I'm glad you were able to find it useful. I wasn't able to push the code examples up last night, but I'll try to do so tonight. Will post applicable links here when I do.

      Mark, I was number 7 last night and won a JetBrains prize. I tried contacting you using Meetup's "send a message" feature but it wont let me. If you have time, can you send me a message?

    I think that it was a great discussion on how to easily integrate speech into our apps. Great job Kelvin.

    Loved it. Pre-concieved complexity eliminated, and now have increased courage and know-how to integrate speech functionality in my apps. Awoke this morning inspired to an app specifically around the speech synthesis capability. Thank you Kelvin for paving the way!
