Intel Software Innovator

Today I feel very excited to be recognized by Intel as a member of the Intel Software Innovator Program. 😀


Throughout 2014 I participated in multiple partner showcases with Intel demonstrating the Cubotix Rover with Intel Perceptual Computing technology. In appreciation of my efforts I received a little welcome package with a certificate of recognition, a thank you letter, a USB “key”, a beautiful white notebook, a cool black polo shirt, and my new favorite coffee mug to refuel with caffeine. 🙂

Apple Scholarship for WWDC 2012

Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference is an exciting event providing an in-depth and inside look at the latest in iOS and OS X. Tickets are always high in demand and have sold out within two hours this year. In addition to the regular tickets, which sold for $1599, Apple accepted applications for one of 150 scholarships.

I have been very excited all day when I received an email from Apple granting me a scholarship to attend WWDC 2012. Thank you, Apple!

Intel Developer Forum 2011

At today’s keynote of the Intel Developer Forum 2011, Intel CEO Paul Otellini presents Intel’s vision about the future of computing. It came by surprise to see Google’s Senior Vice President of Mobile Andy Rubin get on stage during the keynote. Paul Otellini and Andy Rubin announced a strategic partnership between Google and Intel for delivering x86 phones and tablets running Android. So that raises the question: what is going to happen to Intel’s own Linux platform for tablets and phones MeeGo? Paul Ottelini reassured the audience, that Intel will keep the collaboration with industrial partners utilising MeeGo on embedded devices.

Furthermore for laptops the trend goes towards Ultrabooks says Paul Otellini. Intel focusses on making them lighter, faster, cheaper, less power consuming and more responsive. A few Ultrabooks are exhibited on stage. A demo computer shows in which direction mobile computing may go: an ultra low voltage cpu prototype powered by a solar cell and executing Windows.

Cisco shows the next generation office phone. It looks like their current line of IP phones, however it’s color screen is actually a detachable android tablet powered by an atom cpu, I guess.

For a seamless collaboration of mobile and stationary gadgets, Paul Otellini presents Intel Pair & Share, which enables phones, tablets, computers and TVs to connect to each other and show notifications and messages on the currently used device.

Google I/O 2011

I consider myself lucky, getting one of the ~5000 Tickets for this year’s Google I/O, which sold out in 59 minutes. We heard exciting news about the next Version of Android “Ice Cream Sandwich”, which will fuse the latest Phone and Tablet Operating Systems Gingerbread and Honeycomb. On Day 2 Google announced the shipment of Chromebooks from different manufacturers. Chrome OS is Google’s Client system for Cloud based computers. Traditionally – like every year – attendants got a huge gift pack. I have to admit, I have never been so thrilled at a Technology Conference.
