An Interview with Paul Thurrott: Top 10 Reasons to Upgrade to Windows 10 NOW! image/svg+xml

I sat down (virtually) with Microsoft’s Dan Stolts on TechNet Radio to discuss my top 10 reasons to upgrade to Windows 10: It’s free, automatic and regular updates, Windows Hello, Edge, Cortana, Action Center, the return of the Start menu, Continuum, personalization, and the Universal Windows Platform (UWP).

I have a lot of respect for Paul Thurrott, he knows his stuff when it comes to Windows. The interview is quite high-level, but it’s still interesting to hear his top 10 reasons to upgrade.

On a personal note, I’ve been switching between OS X, Linux (Ubuntu) and Windows 10 quite a lot lately and I’m finding that I’m feeling a lot more comfortable with Windows than I have in the past. Maybe I’m truly becoming an OS agnostic?

Legend of Canvas image/svg+xml

An introduction to HTML5 Canvas using the Legend of Zelda. Recorded at Fluent 2016 in San Francisco. Presented by Rich McLaughlin.

A good introduction to game development, the slides are here. I’ve not done any work with the canvas element for a few months, but after watching this, I think I’ll get back into it. I’ve got some partially finished games and it would be good to get them finished.
