Slides and Samples for my talk at TechDays Switzerland

On Tuesday, I had the pleasure to talk to an almost full movie theater room about Windows 10 and the Universal Windows Platform UWP. I think the talk went well, and I had a lot of positive feedback later. 50 minutes sure is short for a talk, but on the plus side it forces you to concentrate on the essential. I really loved finishing my talk with a demo on the Windows Continuum, and even presenting the last few slides from my trusted Lumia 950XL directly on the big movie screen.

To all the participants, I extend a big thank you for the welcome. Unfortunately the session was not recorded, but I am sure I will have other occasions to show this material!

As promised I posted the slides, sample code as well as a small video I made. This video shows the Windows Islandwood (iOS) Bridge sample application running in the iOS simulator. In the sample code, you will find the iOS project after conversion to Windows 10. Finally make sure to check the slides for various resource links.

Happy coding!

One of the talks is available as a video on Channel 9. I expect the other one to be made available soon, stay tuned for an update.

TechDays Belgium is over

I just held two talks in Antwerp, Belgium, for TechDays and it was really nice. First the Belgian team did a fantastic work welcoming the speakers, and as far as I could say, the attendees were also taken care of in an exemplary way. We had just a small incident (there was a power breakdown about 15 minutes before my show and the whole center went black), but noone panicked and it was taken care of with a lot of care. We started the sessions only 15 minutes late on the last day. Everyone stayed calm. I also want to especially mention the technical teams who were simply AMAZING. Such a great work. Before my first session, the technician called my mobile to tell me that he was available and I could go to the room if I wanted. Once there, they totally made me feel at home, were efficient, polite and interested, and even gave feedback after the talk. I would work again with such a team any time!!

I am just back from the MVP summit in Seattle / Redmond and I had a great time there. It was fantastic catching up with old friends and making new ones. Seeing what is coming up in future releases of Silverlight and WPF (to name just those two) was electrifying. Of course I cannot talk about it because otherwise Justin Angel and the NDA police will track me down and kick my ass. If you never met Justin before, trust me, you don’t want that to happen. :)

One more talk: Geneva TechDays, 1st and 2nd of April 2009

Just got confirmation that I will also be talking in Geneva, Switzerland, at the TechDays 2009 (1st or 2nd of April 2009).

The talk will be the same as in the TechDays in Bern, but this time it will be given in French. I never really gave a technical talk in French, so it should be interesting (I hope the material will be more interesting than me struggling with technical words in French, though, just kidding).
