[Dutch] Presentation: Make your app smarter with Microsoft Cognitive Services

As an introduction, I've written already several articles here about the Microsoft Cognitive Services. By combining the power of machine learning and Xamarin, you're able to make your apps smarter and more personal just like I showed before. All of this led up to a presentation that was given at dotNedSaturday, organised by dotNed, the largest .NET User Group from the Netherlands.

Presentation: Make your app smarter with Microsoft Cognitive Services

This presentation will dive into the power of Microsoft Cognitive Services in combination with Xamarin build apps for your phone. By doing this, apps can be made a lot smarter since you’ll be able to tap into machine learning with ease. Apps can be a lot more personal as well, as if it’s your assistant that’ll be more than just Siri/Cortana/Google Now. All of that in a full cross-platform mobile fashion using Xamarin.

During this session I’ll dive into the different available options from the Microsoft Cognitive Services, as well as giving a hands-on demo on how to integrate this in a mobile app. The sample code can be found on Github. Take note the presentation itself is in Dutch, the slides are English. Enjoy!

How to make an App Widget with Xamarin.Android

One of the things Android had for a long time were App Widgets. With these small apps, you're able to create byte-sized functionality that users could use from their home and lockscreen. Since Android 5.0 the support for lockscreen app widgets was removed, while iOS10 introduced them again.

In this article we'll dive into the way how you can create your own App Widget using Xamarin.Android. This article will cover a Hello World-example which you can take as a start to implement in your next project.

How to make an App Widget with Xamarin.Android

For this demo, I wanted to create a simple app widget which displays an icon, text and the current time. When you click the widget, the time will refresh but when you click the icon, an app will start. Let's see how we can create such an app widget! The source code can be found on Github.

Context information using OCR, Entity Linking and Xamarin

Like I said in my previous article, the power of Microsoft Cognitive Services is amazing. With just minimal effort having machine learning at your fingertips is extremely useful. I wanted to dive even deeper in Cognitive Services and was intrigued by the Entity Linking Intelligence Service. I already knew the Computer Vision API could do some OCR and I wanted to combine these to try something that I already thought of years ago.

When you visit a museum and you look at a painting, 9 out of 10 times there's a sign next to it with some information about it. Although many art experts will know exactly what painting technique is used, who the artist is, why he painted it etc., I'll be needing more information than what's on that sign. This is where Entity Linking will come in useful.

Once again we'll be using Xamarin.Forms with a focus on iOS (but Android and/or UWP will work the same way). The source code can be found on Github.

Let's see if the combination of these cognitive services can help us to achieve this goal!

Image Recognition with Computer Vision and Xamarin

Ever since the Microsoft Cognitive Services were available, I always wanted to give those APIs a spin. The power of machine learning at your fingertips, that's pretty awesome! Today I managed to hook up a Xamarin app to the Computer Vision API to do some image recognition. The basic idea of this app is really simple: Let the Computer Vision tell you what you're looking at. Simply take a picture, pass it along the Computer Vision API and display the result in the app. It'll tell you what it thinks you're looking at.

Because this is a simple demo, we'll be using Xamarin.Forms. Although I'll only focus on iOS here, you can easily extend it to Android and/or UWP. The source code can be found on Github.

So let's see how you're able to use the Computer Vision API inside your Xamarin app. I'll give you a small hint: it's really simple!

Put your HTML development on steroids using Yeoman

Last year, Addy Osmani told me about a "tool" called Yeoman. Although it was a great tip back than, I didn't directly feel the need to make use of the tool. Until a couple of weeks ago.

While starting another web project, I started downloading the always used framewoks like jQuery and the HTML5 Boilerplate (or making my own boilerplate which holds everything already). This is actually pretty boring, while I really want to start developing! That's where Yeoman can help out.

Yeoman

At first glance, Yeoman is just a tool that can help you to build web application with ease. But saying so wouldn't give Yeoman enough credits. As stated on their website, Yeoman 1.0 is more than just a tool. It's a workflow; a collection of tools and best practices working in harmony to make developing for the web even better. In this article, I'll try to explain in my words how to work with Yeoman and why it's so awesome. It can help you become a better allround webdeveloper!

CSS animated profile cards

Whoah, been a while since I've posted something! Yet, I wanted to mess around with some fun CSS3 stuff and wanted to share the results with you. Today, we're going to create CSS animated profile cards. Although there are four different kind or animations (Push, Slide, 3D Flip and Explode), they all share the same kind of HTML structure. Simply hover over the images to see the contact details.

CSS animated profile cards

The pictures used are created by Belovodchenko Anton, but their profile data is fake. -prefix-free has been used to remove the vendor prefixes in CSS. All animations are done with the help of the transition property.

So, how can you create this effect for yourself? Let's dive into the code, explaining the parts one at the time.
