Yep, I'm back AGAIN, talking about Cortana... except, this time, Cortana *IS A THING*. Availability on every major platform; at least 80% feature parity on every major platform; *true* write once, deploy EVERYWHERE support... and all by voice or text input. So, that means we can DEFINITIVELY develop meaningful experiences AND reach the vast majority of ALL smartphone users(!) -- using the skills you ALREADY know! How? Through Cortana Skills! We will explore what they are, how they work, and how to set one up -- from beginning to finish! This session is guaranteed to be worth your time and energy, ESPECIALLY if you come ready with a problem to solve (and you have access to a service that holds the answers).
