Build Tour registration now open

Our international Windows app developers and ISVs are invited to attend a local Build Tour event, where you will hear the best of the Build 2016 and meet folks from the Windows engineering and product management teams. Registration is now open for most of the seven cities that the team will be visiting over the next five weeks:

Each Build Tour event is a free, one-day, developer-focused deep-dive into the best of the Build 2016 conference. The morning highlights what’s new for developers across the Microsoft technology stack: platform advances, developer tool improvements, and new back-end services that help make your experiences more personal and scalable. In the afternoon, we’ll dig deeper into UWP, XAML, the desktop and WP Silverlight bridges, Xamarin, DevOps for app devs, and more.

And after you’ve heard all about the exciting new capabilities, and seen them in action, we’ll wrap up the day with an open Q&A and reception where you can engage with our engineering speakers, local Microsoft dev community leaders, and UWP product managers [I’ll be at the Melbourne event :)].

The room at each event holds about 400 developers, so register today.

Windows partners with nonprofit CARE to build healthy communities through technology

Saharsa, one of the poorest rural communities in Bihar, India has among the highest infant mortality rates in the country ‒ 42 per 1,000 live births. There has been a system for community health care worker home visitation and support in place, but digging through multiple written sources to figure out who to visit, which topics to discuss, and particulars about the mother’s or mother-to-be’s condition required lots of manual intervention. Some women received duplicate visits in one day and some were not called on at all despite the best of intentions. With help from Microsoft tools, however – including Windows 10, Office and Microsoft Cloud – and support from the Windows 10 Upgrade Your World initiative, this is changing.

Upgrade Your World has been celebrating people and organizations who empower others all year. For CARE, whose mission is to serve individuals and families in some of the poorest communities in the world, we were thrilled to support their community health care worker initiative, empowering those who educate pregnant women, mothers and their infants during the 1,000 critical days from conception to age two. From my recent trip to India to visit just one of the many projects that CARE leads around the world, I saw that there is much to celebrate, amplify, and build upon.

Nonprofit CARE

Supported by Windows PCs and Microsoft Excel at CARE’s local office, 550 community healthcare workers were set up and provisioned with mobile devices to aid them in registering, tracking and delivering timely care to pregnant women, mothers and newborns. The phones included an app custom-built by CARE, the Gates Foundation and the Indian government, which allowed for real-time collection of health information on each client, and synced through the cloud to create a digital health record for each client. And then the magic began…

The mobile app has a library of videos from doctors and other subject matter experts at-the-ready to support discussion of each topic. At the conclusion of each visit, the results are captured and stored in the Microsoft Cloud, to later be analyzed in aggregate using SQL. No more duplicative visits, which means using resources more effectively and where they are most needed.

All over the district, we spoke with committed, knowledgeable community healthcare workers who welcomed us to their homes and villages with pride (even when we led them in an impromptu, off-key rendition of Old McDonald!). Meeting with Munni, Sima, Sabnam, Lucy, and the passionate team from CARE’s local office, several things became clear:

  • The numbers are all trending in the right direction ‒ more women than ever before (21% more, in fact) are going for necessary checkups during pregnancy.
  • The community health workers conducted more than 600,000 home visits in just over three years, which means more women are receiving life-saving care when they need it most.
  • New and expectant mothers were happy to be visited and counselled by their local healthcare worker, and grateful for the extra nutritional supplies they provided.

However, in addition to all this, there were other, unexpected, but equally (or more) important social outcomes we observed:

  • Access to technology gave these health workers more confidence to do their jobs and engendered more trust from those they visited.
  • With this confidence boost, these women have become even stronger advocates for their communities, ensuring local government is informed and providing much-needed services and supplies where possible.
  • Healthcare workers’ families were proud! Husbands were supportive and daughters saw a different type of role-model in addition to traditional family caretaking. We met Sima and Munni’s daughters and sons, who were eager to practice their English and tell us about their university plans to study Management and Engineering ‒ and how much they were inspired by their mothers.

Nonprofit CARE

We couldn’t be more excited to help CARE amplify this story as part of celebrating mothers everywhere, and to help enable the work they do in communities like Bihar and around the world. As an Upgrade Your World partner, we invested $500,000 cash, with an additional $2M worth of software, to support CARE’s work in advocating for these women and others, improving basic education, working to end gender-based violence, increasing access to healthcare and nutrition, increasing access to clean water, and expanding economic opportunity across their programs.

Seeing all of this firsthand was an incredible experience. The impact that technology has to truly empower others to save lives and create positive social change has inspired me to brainstorm how we collectively build on and extend this very promising foundation.

Thanks to all at CARE who do great things!
