A couple Fridays a month, we’re going to look at a few of the most interesting topics that our Ultrabook community forum members have posted about in the past week. We have quite an active forum here and the discussions are for anyone with an interest in developing for the Ultrabook device. Go ahead and jump into any of these conversations simply by clicking on the links.

Code Samples

Seven coders, four judges, seven weeks and a whole host of cutting-edge technologies begins today with the launch of Ultimate Coder Challenge: Going Perceptual. We're going to give you a front row seat to truly exciting innovation.

How the Challenge works

The implementation for touch and sensors is new for many PC game vendors. Blackfoot Blade from Confetti Interactive* is a 3rd person helicopter game that takes advantage of the touch and sensor capabilities of Ultrabook™ PCs. This case study shares some interesting findings for what worked and didn’t work.

This week at the World Economic Forum, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, most widely known for his invention of the World Wide Web, gave a talk ranging from topics such as social networking all the way to HTML5. Berners-Lee made a few points that are especially relevant to developers, including the need to code and why we need to enable more logical thinking education in schools in order to raise up the next generation of developers.

Who is Tim Berners-Lee?

Dropbox is a freemium service that offers four basic tools: file synchronization, file versioning, file sharing, and remote backup of files.  It’s an extremely powerful tool for developers especially; as it enables coders to quickly sync their coding projects across networks, multiple operating systems, and a whole host of devices. In this article, we’re going to take a look at how Dropbox can simplify common coding tasks and help developers become even more productive.

Abstract

SIMD instruction sets can be used to boost performance in Windows* 8 Store applications. This document focuses on how to create a SIMD library that can be consumed by any Windows 8 Store application programmed in any supported language. This paper shows how to begin making a SIMD library programmed in C++/CX, and three similar applications that use libraries written in C++/CX and XAML, C# and XAML, as well as JavaScript* and HTML5. The SIMD library will aid in speeding up the applications.
