The future that you have dream of is here! We have the technology. We have the capability to make anything we touch come alive. We can make things better... stronger... faster... smarter... more responsive... We can tell Alexa and Cortana to play music, give us reminders and better yet, become interactive with the rest of the household. In this session, Lwin (and Min) will show you how to have Alexa (Amazon Echo) and Cortana (Microsoft) control lights in your house, take reminders, play music and more using Amazon API and Windows Voice Command Definition extensibility API while interacting with custom Internet of Things (IOT) devices and modules to interact with day to day surroundings such as lights in your room, or thermostat in your hall way.
Min Maung (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Name a new technology that Min isn’t interested in. Min has developed on all mobile platforms from latest Windows 8 to Windows Mobile 6.5. Of course that also means that he has had countless smartphones and tablets. Min is often honing his skills by aggressively competing in hackathons dating back to his days at Dominican University. Being technologically agnostic, he does not stop tinkering with mobile platforms like Android, he creates his own personal microcontrollers for robotics projects. When he’s not coding, he’s building robots. When he’s not adding more robots to his robot army, you will see him speaking at conferences such as That Conference and CodeMash. Monday through Friday, you’ll find him consulting different solutions for companies, cranking out .Net code and writing apps in ASP.Net, KendoUI, Knockout.js, Node.js, and other web solutions.
