Microsoft Research visits Chile with workshops on TouchDevelop and the Lab of Things

Earlier in May, Microsoft Research visited the University of Chile and the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile and at the former, presented “TouchDevelop: Create Rich Mobile Cloud Apps on Your Device” to students from the computer sciences department. During the workshop, Michal Moskal, a researcher at Microsoft Research, developed a chat program in TouchDevelop, to show how data can be given a “cloud” tag that many users can simultaneously update.

At the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, Professor Andrés Neyem organized the “Lab of Things – Deploying Connected Devices for Research” workshop. During the session, Arjmand Samuel and Ratul Mahajan, both from Microsoft Research, discussed the Lab of Things and how this platform could be used to scale up research that relies upon connected devices and sensors.
