Microsoft recently released the Quantum Development Kit. Join Jerry Nixon as he welcomes Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Quantum, Todd Homldahl , to the show as they discuss all of the major questions surrounding Quantum today. How does this division fit in Microsoft’s ecosystem? What is Q# and how will Quantum computing affect developers? Is Microsoft’s mission changing to “a Quantum computer on every desktop”? Find the answers to all of these questions and more! Subscribe and Watch the FULL interview here! [03:17] How do you anticipate your work at Microsoft Quantum to feed back into traditional products? What is it that you're doing exactly?[09:25] How does Microsoft Quantum relate to Microsoft Research?[09:55] Is Microsoft Quantum a software division, hardware division, or something else?[13:32] Microsoft is not the only group pursuing Quantum technology. Everyone quotes their number of qubits, sometimes physical, sometimes logical. Is there a difference?[19:15] Do you feel like there is room for more than one Quantum solution in the marketplace or is this a first-to-goal-wins scenario? Does Microsoft have a good chance?[20:33] Microsoft Quantum is special in many ways, and one of those is that we're building the "whole stack". How does this set us apart? Is this just marketing or is it truly meaningful?[24:39] Is Microsoft's mission changing to: "a Quantum computer on every desktop" soon? :) Or is this just for large enterprise organizations?[26:08] What do you see as the short and long term impact on developers?[33:30] Tell us about Q# and the Quantum Development Kit (QDK)?[41:00] What do you anticipate the first impacts being for the developer community?[47:15] What is the one take-away you hope our developer community hears today about MicrosoftIf you're interested in learning more about the products or solutions discussed in this episode, click on any of the below links for free, in-depth information: Websites & Blogs: Jerry

Git struggles to handle enterprise-scale repositories. Operations like cloning will slow to a crawl when you have millions of files in a repository, and even something as simple as getting your repository status will leave you waiting. The Git Virtual File System (GVFS) is an open source system that enables Git to operate at enterprise-scale. It makes using and managing massive Git repositories possible. In Part 3 of our 3 part series, Jerry Nixon, Saeed Noursalehi and Christian Allred show us what GVFS looks like under the hood and how you can start using it today. [01:36] Today you're going to show us some of the behind the scenes magic of GVFS, correct?[02:56] What is a mini-filter and why is this important in GVFS?[06:16] How does the mini-filter work in GVFS?[10:11] Can you give us some more info around the approach to cloaning?[23:45] Talk to us about Placeholder files[28:31] DEMO: What is tombstone?[48:13] What's next for GVFS?If you're interested in learning more about the products or solutions discussed in this episode, click on any of the below links for free, in-depth information: Websites & Blogs: Jerry Nixon's BlogLearn more about GVFS: Git at Enterprise Scale

Microsoft joined the Englander Institute of Precision Medicine (IPM) at Weill Cornell Medicine for a weeklong hackfest to develop a chatbot that supports both text and voice interactions with the Precision Medicine Knowledgebase (PMKB) for clinical cancer variants and interpretations. The knowledge base currently supports 163 genes and 518 variants with 404 clinical interpretations. Pathologists and researchers are tasked with accessing this information by clicking through the given portal; however, in an attempt to make the knowledge base more mobile, the team created a bot using the Microsoft Bot Framework that connects to several channels including Microsoft Teams, Skype, Slack, and WebChat. As a result, clinicians can now access this data in many different ways and make life-changing clinical decisions at a faster rate. Join Jerry Nixon and Heather Shapiro as they welcome Alex Sigaras from Weill Cornell Medicine as they walk us through the project and describe how they built their chatbot using various Microsoft technologies. [01:04] Talk to us a little bit about the Microsoft Bot Framework. What is it and what is it not?[07:25] What are some of the biggest barriers in medicine that are being broken down due to advancements in technology?[11:26] What project did Microsoft and Weill Cornell choose to tackle?[21:02] What was the expectation going into this project? How did it turn out?[28:59] What’s next for you guys?If you're interested in learning more about the products or solutions discussed in this episode, click on any of the below links for free, in-depth information: Websites & Blogs: Jerry Nixon's BlogLearn more about the Precision Medicine Knowledgebase

ABUS delivers approximately 50,000 IP-enabled security cameras per year and a few thousand IP-enabled alert systems. These devices are not natively cloud enabled because they require direct Internet connections done with port forwarding in the customer’s network firewall, which implies possible security issues. ABUS recently teamed up with Microsoft to create a cloud-based management and control solution that provides a central secure gateway for all IP-enabled devices in a customer’s network.Join Jerry Nixon as he welcomes the team that developed the IoT solution that helps ABUS to securely connect their security devices to the Azure cloud in Germany and to envision a new generation of ABUS connecteddevices.[04:35] Tell us about ABUS. What do you do?[05:10] As technology is evolving, how is security changing as well?[06:30] In this connected world where everyone can see everything with their devices, how does ABUS overcome technology challenges to make this happen?[07:36] As we start to talk about cloud computing, data security comes into question. How do you see Azure's ability to meet those needs?[11:25] Can you tell us what the decision process looks like when a company like ABUS goes through the vendor selection process for their data security storage?[14:07] Can you describe for our listeners the project Microsoft and ABUS worked together on?[17:08] How is video different than your typical IoT?[18:48] Inside Azure, what services did you use to make this happen?[22:45] How did you use Azure Functions and what other Azure services are you thinking about using?Use the code and architecture from this project on GitHub, get hands on with IoT labs or start to build your own IoT solution on Azure.

The drone industry is attracting the attention of many people who have innovative ideas for how to use them, and as a result many companies are now focusing on building new applications for them. According to a recent study, by 2030, fifty percent of the market for industrial drones will be focused on agriculture and photography. Unfortunately, there are currently no standardized safety mechanisms in place and these giant flying objects can be subject to hacking or malfunctioning.  DroneWorks, located in Chiba, Japan, is currently working to fix that by building alliances with stakeholders to standardize manufactured drones and build an industrial drone flight controller and management system.Join Jerry Nixon as he welcomes the CEO of DroneWorks, Hironobu Imamura as well as Microsoft Technical Evangelists Kosuke Fujimoto and Hiroshi Ota, as they discuss how they worked together on a project to develop a management solution and malfunction prediction system using Azure IoT Hub and Azure Machine Learning.[03:39] Tell us a little about DroneWorks.
