We had no show last week, but we’ll have two this week.

On .NET - Public Speaking

On Wednesday at 9:00AM Pacific Time, Scott Hanselman will host a panel discussion on public speaking, with Kasey Uhlenhuth, Maria Naggaga Nakanwagi, Donovan Brown, and Mitch Muenster.


On Thursday at 9:00AM Pacific Time, Patrick Smacchia will be on the show to talk about the brand new version of ndepend.

Both shows will stream live on Channel 9. We’ll take questions on Gitter, on the dotnet/home channel and on Twitter. Please use the #onnet tag. It’s OK to start sending us questions in advance if you can’t do it live during the shows.

Package of the week: Adafruit Class Library for Windows IoT Core

Adafruit is a familiar brand for anyone involved in the maker movement. Entrepreneur extraordinaire and open source advocate Limor Fried built the success of the company on high quality tutorials and a line of open source and US-manufactured products.

Adafruit recently released the Adafruit Class Library for Windows IoT Core, a set of classes and associated tutorials for using some of their most popular products with Windows IoT Core, for example on a Raspberry Pi.

Game of the week: Floor Plan

Floor Plan is a puzzle adventure game designed for virtual reality. In Floor Plan, players travel in an elevator in order to find items that can be used to solve various puzzles. You’ll meet a whole cast of cooky characters as you move between floors, each of which is designed with their own whimsical theme.

Floor Plan

Floor Plan was created by Turbo Button using C# and Unity. It is available for Gear VR, Oculus Rift, and Daydream.
