Making up your mind online
We all know the situation. A large group of people is holidaying together and trying to figure out where they are going to have dinner that same night. It’s a complex decision process that involves a lot of phone calls, discussions and maybe even meetings. It’s tiring and time consuming and often leads to the same people as always making the decisions or even, in worse case, to a non-decision.Having experienced this kind of situation more than once himself, Kostas Kastrinogiannis, a Senior Engineering Lead at Microsoft Development Center Copenhagen, came up with an interesting challenge for this year’s BEST Engineering Contest at Denmark’s Technical University (DTU): to design and demonstrate an application that can help large groups of people make decisions online.
The European BEST Engineering Contest is an annual engineering competition organized by the pan-European student organization BEST that is present in more than 30 countries, has more than 4000 members and reaches out to approximately one million students. This year’s competition gathered 32 DTU students, divided into groups of four, who all fought their way through the challenge presented to them by Kostas.“The challenge was easy for the students to relate to. But it quickly became clear that a simple-to-use application for online decision making that would solve the problem end to end, is far from being an easy task to design”, he says.
The students were not asked to do the actual coding but to present scenarios including target users, their context, motivations and needs, as well as a detailed description of the solution. To illustrate their proposal, the students should use wireframes, schematic screen representation of how the solution behaves from action to action, as well as architecture diagrams.“Many of the teams ended up with good solutions but the winning team impressed us with their creativity and originality. They used something as simple as smiley’s to express votes and used them to calculate the probability of participation of each voter, creating real personas by keeping track of each person’s history. Their solution enabled really cool interaction and if they stick to it, I’m quite sure they can take it to the next level”, says Kostas. Next step for the winning team is the Scandinavian finale in Lund, Sweden, and if they make it through here, the grand European finale.
As for Kostas, who started as a college hire with Microsoft Development Center Copenhagen more than five years ago, the hours of work put into this event, in addition to his job, are well worth it.“A great win from this event is the networking part. I got to know the students and they can now reach out to me if they’re interested in knowing more about what it’s like to work for Microsoft”, he says.
At Microsoft Development Center Copenhagen we are always on the lookout for young and talented people to join us which is why we help sponsor and organize an event such as BEST. We hope that this year’s challenge will make it even easier for the students to make up their mind and explore their career options with us.

TechTalk: Async in C# 5.0 - No More Callbacks! By Mads Torgersen, Program Manager for the C# Language at Microsoft
For modern connected apps, asynchronous programming is necessary to ensure responsiveness of devices and scalability of services. However, asynchronous programming tends to be a teeth-grinding quagmire of dynamically wired-up callbacks, busting any attempt at well-structured code and practically ensuring bugs and poor error handling. C# 5.0 changes all that. The new 'async' language feature along with futures/promises-based APIs bring back the good old imperative experience. Come see how!When

TechTalk: Second Generation Lean Product Development by Donald Reinertsen
Lean methods have been used for over 50 years in production processes, producing huge economic benefits. They are based on many principles that are transferable to product development. In fact, these methods are the only practical way to simultaneously achieve large improvements in the speed, quality, and cost of product development. However, using lean methods in product development requires some insight. Certain methods that work in Lean Manufacturing are toxic in a product development environment. For example, if we try to eliminate all variability we will, as an unfortunate side effect, eliminate all innovation.This talk will introduce you to the science and practical methods of Lean Product Development. It draws upon ideas from a variety of domains including queuing theory, telecommunication network design, computer operating systems, and lean manufacturing. It will introduce you to a number of key lean methods such as queue management, batch size reduction, WIP constraints, and cadence. It is intended to provide a quick introduction to some important new ideas.When

His latest awarding winning book, The Principles of Product Development Flow: Second Generation Lean Product Development, has been praised as, “… quite simply the most advanced product development book you can buy.”
Two TechTalks in one by Simon Peyton Jones
Thank you for participating in the TechTalk with Simon Peyton Jones, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research.The video recordings of the sessions are now available on Channel9 so if you missed out on the talks or want to revisit them, please go to:Topic 1: Classes, Jim, but not as we know them
Haskell is now quite widely used, but its most important contributions are the ideas that it embodies. In this talk Simon will focus on one of these ideas, namely type classes, with a few anecdotes and reflections along the way about the process of developing the language.Type classes are probably Haskell's most distinctive feature. The original idea is very neat and, better still, it led to a long series of subsequent generalizations and innovations. Indeed, although the language is now nineteen years old, Haskell's type system is still in a state of furious development. For example, Simon is involved in adding type-level functions to Haskell, as he will briefly describe.He will explain what type classes are, how they differ from the classes of mainstream object oriented languages, why he thinks they are so cool, and what the hot topics are. He will give plenty of examples, so you don't need to already know Haskell.Topic 2: Fun with type functions
Today’s most widely used technology, by far, for static program verification is the ubiquitous type checker. Alas, static type systems inevitably exclude some good programs; and allow some bad ones. Thus motivated, Simon will describe some fun he has been having with Haskell, by making the type system more expressive without losing the benefits of automatic proof and compact expression.About Simon Peyton JonesSimon Peyton Jones, MA, MBCS, CEng, graduated from Trinity College Cambridge in 1980. After two years in industry, he spent seven years as a lecturer at University College London, and nine years as a professor at Glasgow University, before moving to Microsoft Research (Cambridge) in 1998.
His main research interest is in functional programming languages, their implementation, and their application. He has led a succession of research projects focused around the design and implementation of production-quality functional-language systems for both uniprocessors and parallel machines. He was a key contributor to the design of the now-standard functional language Haskell, and is the lead designer of the widely-used Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC). He has written two textbooks about the implementation of functional languages.
More generally, he is interested in language design, rich type systems, software component architectures, compiler technology, code generation, runtime systems, virtual machines, and garbage collection. He is particularly motivated by direct use of principled theory to practical language design and implementation -- that's one reason he loves functional programming so much.

TechTalk: Advanced .NET Debugging by Brian Rasmussen
25-11-2010 at MDCC in Vedbæk
What do you do, when your .NET application crashes on the production servers and you can't reproduce the bug in-house? How do you detect memory leaks in a .NET application, when you can't inspect the memory usage from Visual Studio? In this demo-intensive presentation we take a look at how WinDbg and SOS can be used to troubleshoot several hard-to-debug, real world problems in .NET applications. About Brian Rasmussen

TechTalk: NUI: What’s in a Name? by Bill Buxton, Principal Researcher Microsoft Research
04-10-2010 at MDCC in Vedbæk
Natural User Interface, or NUI, is one of the favourite flavours du jour in certain interaction design and user experience circles. On the one hand, the term signals a change from the Graphical User Interace, or GUI, that has been prevalent since the early 1980s. In many ways, that is good. Not that the GUI is going to go away (any more than the QWERTY keyboard, I predict). But progress does, as they say, progress. And just because there was a great idea that took hold, does not mean that that is all that there is.
But beyond the name, what is this new thing? As far as I can see, the answer depends on who you ask. Ask enough people, and you will see that it can mean anything - which means, by the way, that it might mean nothing. I don’t view it that way. Yes, there are a lot of diverse views. But that also means that there is a lot of diverse conversations accompanying them, and I see that as healthy. Complacency is rarely a worthy aspiration for design. But out of the collective conversations one would hope that there is some convergence - which might be another term for insight or growth.
The purpose of this talk is to throw my own thoughts into the fray - for better or for worse. Taking my cue from the term itself, I’ll start like a good naturalist, and strip the term bare, and build from there. Starting with diving into the essence of the term natural.

TechTalk: RESTful Application Protocols: From Design to Implementation by Ian Robinson
05-10-2010 at MDCC in Vedbæk
Challenging the notion that REST is suitable only for simple CRUD-based data services, in this TechTalk Ian Robinson will show how to implement a complex business process as part of a RESTful application. Using techniques drawn from the forthcoming O'Reilly book "REST in Practice", he describes how to model business processes as domain application protocols, implement them in terms of resource lifecycles, and execute them using HTTP idioms, media types and link relation values. Watch the video hereAbout Ian Robinson
