Introducing Emma, the breakfast bot

30 Sep

Many companies have breakfast Friday morning (at least in Denmark) – so do we in Bluefragments. We’re a consultant company and have people running in and out of our office – so we always ended up buying to much breakfast and just throwing it out. A few months ago we decided to do something about it – so we invented “Emma, the breakfast bot”.

In the beginning of the week Emma contacts all employees and asks if they will be joining for breakfast. At the end of the day on Thursday she sums up how many that have signed up. She have a calculation for what is needed for the breakfast – 1 piece of bread per person, 0.2L juice per person etc. Finally Emma contacts a local baker and orders the breakfast for delivery next morning.

Friday morning the breakfast is delivered, no humans involved in the ordering process and we only bought the breakfast actually needed.

We have made an agreement with Kringlexpressen about the ordering and delivery. Emma can talk with Kringlexpressen out-of-the-box and hence handle all of the delivery. If you prefer you can choose to receive an email with the breakfast needed instead of having it delivered.

We expect to ship her to the public in a short period of time. Initially Emma is available in Teams, Skype, Slack – in the near future she will also be available in Skype for Business and Facebook Messenger. If you want to beta-test Emma, hear more about how we build her or if you have any questions about Emma, you’re always welcome to write to emma@bluefragments.com.

A week at Ignite

30 Sep

Last week I arrived at Orlando, Florida, to participate in Microsoft Ignite and to talk about our Readymade AI concept.

I’m a developer by heart, so I kicked of Ignite with an pre-event AI developer bootcamp – a full day of examples on how to use AI services from Microsoft presented by James Carpinter, Microsoft Regional Director in New Zealand. It is always great to see some real solutions using the Microsoft AI services – and not least how they are doing it.

First day of the actual conference started with a vison keynote by Satya Nadella. I spend the rest of the week together with companies and Microsoft employees talking about our Readymade AI concept. It was really great to see how well it was received, how people understood the concept and to hear how people could see it work in their company. So awesome! :)

Tomorrow I’m heading back home to Denmark, and will spend next week working on the feedback I received here at Ignite. Thank you to everybody that had time to meet with me – and have fun, Orlando – we might meet again next year :)

Bluefragments won the Microsoft App Partner 2013 award

26 Nov

A few weeks back Bluefragments was nominated in two categories for Microsoft Partner Award 2013.

Unfortunately I couldn’t attend the award show but Martin Jepsen and Deani Hansen took my place instead. I was told that it was a great evening and there was a really good atmosphere. Maybe that have something to do with the fact that we won the Microsoft App Partner Award 2013. YEAH!

This have everything to do with our awesome customers, a really great team in Bluefragments and a good relationship with Microsoft Danmark. Thank you everybody!

Bluefragments Windows 8 SWAT team

15 Oct

A few weeks back Bluefragments announced the beginning of a new Windows 8 SWAT team. We received several applications from a lot of qualified developers and designers from all over Denmark.

In the previous months, I have talked to a number of companies in Denmark, to find an event that would fit into the first Bluefragments Windows 8 SWAT event. Today I’m thrilled to announce that Bluefragments have made an agreement with a major Danish media company to do a news center for Windows 8.

There are a variety of news apps for Windows 8. However many of them are made ​​with no special focus on the Windows 8 platform. This is an unique opportunity for a news app that dares to stand out and take advantage of all the features the Windows 8 platform offers.

Look forward to an awesome news app coming to the Windows Store really soon.
