Carl and Richard talk to Dan Hanan and Danny Warren about mixing Kinect together with WinRT. Back at the Build conference keynote a 'marketecture' diagram showed how existing applications still work in Windows 8 but also introduced a new platform using WinRT. At the time attendees were told that the blue side (existing applications) and the green side (WinRT) will never cross. Then the folks at Interknowlogy got to work. Dan and Danny talk about how they built an application utilizing Kinect, depending on an SDK that runs on the blue side to communicate with a Metro application that runs on the green side. Crossing the streams? You bet!


Dan Hanan is a Lead Software Engineer at InterKnowlogy in Carlsbad, CA. He is currently working with a client to come up with a next generation enterprise application centered around data visualization. Before diving head first into WPF the past couple years, Dan worked on both sides of the wire: writing occasionally connected Click-Once WinForms smart clients for the front-end as well as back-end technologies such as WCF, ASMX web services, and SQL. He likes to try to forget his early years, which were spent hassling with C++, MFC, COM, etc.
