Technical Center - Room 232 Montgomery College (Rockville Campus) Going beyond the Soft in Software: Programming with Kinect and .NET Gadgeteer - G. Andrew Duthie Join Microsoft Developer Evangelist G. Andrew Duthie (aka Devhammer) for a tour of some of the fun new ways you can leverage your .NET coding skills to drive hardware. We'll look at the Kinect SDK for Windows, as well as the .NET Micro Framework, and the brand-new .NET Gadgeteer open hardware specification, and how its modular architecture opens up the world of embedded device development and rapid prototyping to even those who've never held a soldering iron. Learn about both fun and practical things you can do by adding a little spice of hardware to your software recipes in this demo-driven talk! G. Andrew Duthie, aka devhammer, is the Developer Evangelist for Microsoft’s Mid-Atlantic States district, where he provides support and education for developers working with the .net development platform. In addition to his work with Microsoft, Andrew is the author of several books on ASP.NET and web development, and has spoken at numerous industry conferences from VSLive! and ASP.NET Connections, to Microsoft’s Professional Developer Conference (PDC) and Tech-Ed. Andrew has been participating in the user group community since way back in 1997, when one of his co-workers dragged him out to the Internet Developers User Group in Tyson's Corner, VA, and he's been hooked ever since.

Andrew is also the creator and developer of Community Megaphone, a site designed for promoting and finding developer community events.
