Build Caffe2 and Detectron with GPU support on Windows (Part 2 of 2)

Few weeks ago, I had the need to test and use some custom models made with Caffe2 framework and Detectron. They are actively developed on Linux, but I needed to have them run on Windows 10 with CUDA GPU support. It is possible to build Caffe2 for Windows, and a guide is provided, but if you need to use Detectron (not supported on Windows, officially), it is a bit more complicated and some changes in the source code and in the build scripts are required.

A Journey ends, another one begins...

Last friday was my last day at work. After about 10 years, my journey in the great Beps Engineering, an Italian leader in Microsoft Windows Embedded and IoT technologies, has come to the end. I want to thank all my colleagues, who shared their experience and passion in all the projects we did in the past years. I've been able to learn a lot in numerous fields, ranging from embedded devices to cloud/IoT solutions, passing by cross-platform apps development, inventing new stuff in interesting R&D projects and crafting immersive VR experiences. I'm very grateful to the management, especially Beppe Platania, that let me pursue my passions and thirsty of knowledge, and sharing back most of the stuff I learnt with the developer community through events and Microsoft MVP activities.
