Customers are doing amazing things with it, and we are building on this momentum in 2019. We're improving Windows ML based on your feedback, launching DirectML for performance-critical machine learning solutions, and adding support for new AI-focused silicon. Come learn how you can leverage the power of Machine Learning and AI for your own applications whether you are looking to add a little intelligence to your processes, or leverage existing speech and other input recognition models.

What's new for the Command Line and Windows Subsystem for Linux

Windows 10 supports multiple command-line interfaces including WSL, CMD, and PowerShell, all of which build upon the Windows console. The Windows console has been updated throughout the years, but it’s time for a Big Change to help us all be more productive at the command line with a fresh and more capable command-line interface. Web and C++ cross-platform developers have also discovered how the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) enables them to use their Linux tools and workflows on Windows, giving them the best of both worlds. In this architecture and roadmap session, join us to learn about the new open source Windows Terminal, WSL 1, WSL 2, and how they together enable developers to be happier and more productive in the natural home of developers: at the command-line.

Leverage the Power of Machine Learning on Windows

AI is the key to open so many possibilities in terms of delivering 'new values' to our customers. Microsoft has enabled us (developers) to embrace all of the cutting-edge technologies with tremendous productivity.

As a Windows developer, we want to leverage the power of AI to improve our solutions. But, the question is where to begin and how to start? In this session you will learn how to infuse Machine Learning (ML) in your application, and then learn how to use ML in an IoT solution.

The good news for .NET developers, now you can use your existing .NET skills to use different types of ML models with the help of ONNX and create your own ML model automatically using AutoML feature in ML NET. Quick and brilliant, coding like a boss ;D

Want to attend the Insider Dev Tour, but not sure how to bring it up to your boss? Here’s a sample letter that will help you out. Just replace the text in [brackets]

Dear [my boss’s name],

I’d like to attend the Microsoft Insider Dev Tour on [date] in [city]. The Insider Dev Tour is Microsoft's free, single-day, local, developer-focused event, bringing the latest technology and practical knowledge from the people who build the products. The content for the event, alone, is worth the trip, but the ability to network with Microsoft employees, community leaders, and subject matter experts will help me in my work here.

Here are two ways in which my attendance at the Insider Dev Tour will strengthen [company name]: 

  • The presentations are relevant to my daily tasks and growth. I will get a view of the broad developer roadmap at Microsoft, and also deep dives into current practical and future-looking technologies for building Microsoft 365 applications using Windows desktop, Web, and Graph.

  • Networking with other attendees, community leaders, and Microsoft engineers is highly encouraged, so I can talk with people who have solved issues similar to those we run into.

The event is free, so all I need is a single day to attend. You can learn more about the event by visiting . Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns; I’d really like to attend this event!


[my name]
