Microsoft announces the premier of the second season of the DECODED Show to air on Wednesday, August 23 at 6PM PST.

If you’re a coder, you already know you are in a fast moving industry with constantly evolving potential.

The challenges coders face are no longer related to a lack of available dynamic software, but instead, an inability to stay abreast of all the recent advancements and know what the most up to date capabilities.

Microsoft DECODED is the programmer-focused web series aimed at inspiring and connecting developers to the most exciting new open source software, the people who are creating it, and the problems they are solving.

Led by Microsoft Chief Geek and Host, John Shewchuk, and Executive Producer David Mendlen, season two is looking better than ever, with episodes delving into AI, robotics, machine learning, app development, mixed reality, and much more.

The show has a wide array of topics for front end, back end, DevOps, and entrepreneurs with their insights on the tech world.  

Tickets are still available for the shows launch party in San Francisco here. And last season’s episodes are up on the DECODED Youtube channel.

Season 2 lineup:

Episode 1 – BOTS

In the season opener, John Shewchuk and Microsoft Corporate Vice President and Chief Evangelist, Steve Guggenheimer, sit down with the distinguished engineer and brilliant mind behind the Microsoft BOT framework and hear from the innovators who are building on that framework to talk about robots, coding for intelligence, the future of AI, and all things BOTS.


The second episode highlights a new set of thought leaders to the roundtable to hear about what’s new, what’s being built, and what’s in store for the future of MACHINE LEARNING. The crew hits the slopes of Snowbird Utah with the US Ski and Snowboard Team to gather and analyze some unique performance data, sits down with the visionaries who are using machine learning to optimize the Agriculture industry, and chats with the innovators who are using machine learning to change the way we understand and play the game of golf.


Episode three takes us for a sit-down with two innovative teams who are working on Microsoft’s Mixed Reality headset, Hololens. One team is transforming the world of medicine and the other is changing the way we visualize the complex industries of oil and gas. We then take a dive into gaming and virtual reality with a look at the code behind the Oculus Rift, and see what’s in store for the future of MIXED REALITY.


In the fourth episode we dive into the world of Kubernetes, Containers and Cloud computing and we sit down with the minds behind a data science initiative that is using software to transform the world’s energy supply. This includes chatting with a designer who is streamlining and modernizing container solutions to talk about what’s new and what’s in store for the future of MODERN APP DEVELOPMENT.


In the fifth episode, we listen-in on a new set of thought leaders and tech trend setters to the roundtable who will share stories and lend some personal advice as they talk about their experience building some of the most successful and innovative start-up businesses today. These are the TRAILBLAZERS.
