Samsung SUR40 with Microsoft PixelSensesamsunglfd.com/solution/sur40.do
According to Joe Engalan at VectorForm, a Microsoft Surface Partner, you can. They've created an entry level DJ application that lets groups join in on the fun. This is when Joe's team isn't working on Microsoft Surface with car configurators, presidential election coverage, educational and medical applications to name a few. The DJ started simple, and grew from there. There's even an iPhone app. Now they've added some features like scratching into 2.0.
The first video is Joe and I going over 2.0 alpha (also in HD) and the second video is a demo performance in their offices on an earlier version. Any aspiring DJs out there?
Ok. So you've heard me talk about how we're in at WPC in a big way. Now it's official. We've announced our Microsoft Surface Partner Program. This is a big deal for partners and developers, because it means registered Microsoft Partners can get access to the Microsoft Surface SDK Workstation Edition through our new QuickStart site. Give it a visit.
If you're into reading, and want to hear how Microsoft Surface has driven real ROI for businesses, you can check out all the news here. It's actually pretty cool to see how these business have been applying the product. It's not all just fun and games. Microsoft Surface is driving results. I'll try get some video examples up later.
Another big item: To kick off the program, we're running a contest. It's called The Touch First Microsoft Surface Developer Challenge, because we couldn't think of a shorter title. I'd just call it Touch First. There is a prize, so follow the link to learn more.
By the way, did you see #WPC09 was a trending topic on Twitter earlier this morning? During our session on Tuesday, let's see if #surface makes it in!
We've highlighted education and Microsoft Surface a few times before. I had inquiries on Twitter and I thought it would be good to post a compilation on Surface in education. Here are some applications by Microsoft, our Microsoft Surface partners and others.
We've had a number of higher education institutions buying Microsoft Surface as well, so if you're at college you may see curricula including Surface in markets where it's available. Education developers - don't forget that MSDN-AA has the Microsoft Surface SDK Workstation Edition for subscribers to get you started. Let me know if I've missed anything in my list above. I'll make future posts on healthcare, financial services, etc.
