Intel Ultracode #1: Meet&Greet + Demos

Join us for the first Intel code&tell meetup at Sandbox Suites South Park! Come with your programming appetite and bring your hacks. We'll have a few short code demonstrations, raffle and of course pizza and beer; if you are up to plug your computer and give a technical demo to the rest of the group let us know - we have a few more spots left.

*Update - we've filled all demo spots for our December meetup, however we're already planning our January event so there'll be more opportunities to present.

Raffle prizes:

1 high speed high capacity Intel SSD http://amzn.to/SnmRRw

1 mid capacity Intel SSD http://amzn.to/TkUId4

2 Perceptual Computing cameras

3 Intel swag bundles

Tentative Agenda:

7PM | Opening

7:30PM | Code Demos:

1. Bob Duffy will be doing a quick demo of his HTML5 vector based game and show how he added device touch, tilt and rotation input controls via WinRT APIs.

2. Gilles de Bordeaux will demo his new windows 8 app and show the power of the standard Windows 8 templates in Visual Studio 2012.

3. Raimo Tuisku will give a presentation, demo and architectural description of a real-time ball in a maze game Velomaze controlled with an accelerometer API of modern HTML5 browsers

4. Eugene Chuvyrov will demonstrate the power of sharing and searching contracts in Windows 8 applications. Little talk, just code in both JavaScript and C# showing how easy it is to implement these powerful and valuable features of Windows 8 apps.

5. Giorgio Zamparelli will be demoing his Android app Famenu (work in progress) and talk about the open source frameworks he used to put it together

6. Gayathri will demo a photo app showcasing pinch, zoom and swipe gestures. Ambient light sensor, orientation sensor and accelerometer. She will also talk about a good UI design for touch interfaces. *We will also get to see a Perceptual Computing demo by Gayathri at the Ultrabooks sandbox during the break.


8:30PM | Pizza break and time to play with the new Ultrabooks!


9PM | More Code Demos:

1. Bruno Terkaly will present two projects: an Azure back-end web service that made calls into Google maps to retrieve geo-location information. The second project is a Windows 8 application that calls into the Azure cloud service, passing in GPS coordinates. When the cloud service received the coordinates, it used Google maps to give more details about the location to the Windows 8 application.

2. Chris Skaggs (Soma Games) will demo their Wind Up Football game using all the bells and whistles of the Ultrabook. He could speak to anyone wanting to use Unity as tool for development on Win 8 and the Ultrabook.

3. Giacomo Balli will be demoing his Coin Toss Extreme gamebuilt entirely in HTML5 he'll go through all aspects of it and share code snippets.

4. James Edwards will be showing a practical use for variadic templates with a safe printf example. Also touches on type traits.

 

9:45PM | Raffle and Giveaways


10PM | Closing

    Sorry this is a bit late, but here's a link to the variadic templates. http://thinkthencode.blogspot.com/2012/12/safeprintf.html
    It's my blog on coding. Thought it would be more general, but it's basically C++ and for the foreseeable future it will be C++11.

    Noel, makes a good point. If presenters have decks then yep then please share. For my demo I have a blog series and will share those links

    We will have more meetups more code demos, allowing folks to attend if they miss this one. We hope to keep this going.

    Note we are encouraging a "slide deck free" meetup as we want to see code demonstrated. But we get if you need to present your code via a deck.

    If you do not have a PC and need to use one from our team, come early to test your demo/presentation

  • Giacomo B.

    you have a laptop we can use for the presentation?

  • Bob D.

    Looking forward to this meetup. If you have business cards, bring them, well be drawing names for our raffle prizes.
    Note lots of presentations to cover in this meetup.

    For presenters
    - Keep your presentations tight and about 5 minutes long
    - Have your demo ready to go. Not much time between presenters

      Hey James, updated the description of your demo/talk; could you email me at vera at bemyapp dot com just to update you on the presenters agenda. thanks!

  • Giacomo B.

    Hello everyone,
    I'll be demoing my first game. Made entirely in HTML5 I'll go through all aspects of it and share code snippets.
    The game is Coin Toss Extreme: http://bit.ly/SyOjdq

      Thanks Giacomo, looking forward to it!

    Hi all, I'm starting to draft a general demo/showcase list for our first meetup. Bob Duffy will be demoing his html5 game (check his description bellow), and we have some cool stuff in the perceptional computing space as well. If you're working on a cross platform html5 or windows 8 app/hack/project and would like to demo (no slides please;) please don't be shy and let me know! Would be great to see what you are all up to and learn from each other. Look forward to Ultracode#1 and meeting you all ;)

    Just occurred to me not all are draped in the fun new lingo from our friends from Washington, and I should probably clarify my use of 'WinRT' WinRT != Windows RT(ARM version of Windows 8)
    Here's what Quora has to offer http://www.quora.com/Windows-8/What-does-the-RT-stand-for-in-Windows-RT# To clarify, my code will use new APIs(WinRT) that executes via javascript and HTML5 to build an app that run on Windows 8 x86 devices with sensor features like Intel Ultrabooks and Tablets Must be fun times to be on the branding team at Microsoft ;-) See ya soon

  • Bob D.

    All, I'll be doing a quick demo of my HTML5 vector based game and show how I added device touch, tilt and rotation input controls via WinRT APIs. Hopefully I can show in the 5-7 minutes allotted.
    I'm looking forward to the MeetUp
