10 things every .NET developer should know about Windows 8

19 Oct

Yesterday I did a talk at CNUG about Windows 8. I talked about 10 things every .NET developer should know about Windows 8.

So what are the 10 things every .NET developer should know about Windows 8 – if you got 90 minutes to present them? I choose these 10 topics:

  • Design does matter
  • Snap and Scale Beautifully
  • Presenting Data
  • DataTemplateSelector
  • Async is Great
  • Use the right Contracts
  • Invest in a Great Tile
  • Connected and Alive
  • Take care of Process Lifetime
  • Notice the Fine Print

Some of the topics are quite large – how can you talk about presenting data or async in less then 10 minutes?! Seriously!! Well I hope the participants got a good glimpse at some of the cool features available in Windows 8 and that some of them enjoy their really cool Bluefragments Windows 8 t-shirt :)

You can get my slides and my demo from my SkyDrive

Silverlight kurser og workshops

31 Jan

Jeg har tidligere skrevet om en række Silverlight workshops som jeg afholder I løbet af de kommende 4 måneder. Alle workshops foregår onsdag aften på ITU fra kl. 18:00-21:00.

Nu ligger der også 2 kurser på tegnebrættet – et “Introduktion til Silverlight 4”-kursus og et “Avanceret Silverlight 4”-kursus. Begge kurser ligger i starten af april.

For at gøre det hele en smule mere overskueligt har jeg opdateret så den fremover viser en oversigt over alle workshops, kurser og foredrag som Bluefragments står for.

Derudover afholder den danske Silverlight brugergruppe (SLDEV) en række spændende events som kan ses på

Happy coding!

Getting ready for JAOO

28 Sep

On Sunday I’m doing a full day training session about Silverlight, Windows Phone 7 and Azure. All three technologies are huge and great at their own but together they give a truly amazing development platform.

Doing the session the participants will learn to develop a Silverlight webshop running in the browser and they will learn to build an out-of-browser Silverlight application to administrate the webshop. To take it one step further the participants will learn to develop a simple shop for Windows Phone 7 (yes, I will bring a developer device!). Finally the participants will learn to host the applications in Windows Azure and to store the data in SQL Azure.
