Microsoft Tech Days: UK and the Netherlands

Back from the bank holiday madness of BBQ's, champagne receptions, royal weddings, more champagne receptions and then more BBQ's - Whew! Did anyone notice that the UK moved 20 degrees south for the weekend - our weather was amazing!

I had a great week during the holiday bonanza and actually appeared to be doing some work - at the Microsoft event Tech Days in the Netherlands. You can find the link for the Dutch event here: http://www.techdays.nl/  And the UK homepage here: http://uktechdays.cloudapp.net/home.aspx

I wanted to thank Coert Bosker from PDS for the speaking invitation and the kind hospitality. You can find the link to PDS company homepage here: www.pds-site.com

Microsoft TechDays are great (and most importantly FREE) events that are organized throughout the UK and the rest of Europe. The allow some deep dives into current technologies (web and Bing are prominent).

I will post some more details on my discussions with application compatibility luminary Aaron Margosis and some shared views on application compatibility and most importantly the nature and utility of shims.

Maybe for you as a speaker the event is free, but unfortunately not for the normal visitors. It would have cost me 299 euro at minimum, to attend the event. However, GeekNight was free - and that one I attended.
But it is a great place to hear nice sessions and meet people of all ranks.
