Yesterday I did a session about Windows Phone Live Tiles at Visug. Visug is the Belgian Visual Studio User Group.
I had a great time, lots of fun, met some nice people, had some drinks and laughs. All in all a very productive evening. Except for the Microsoft Proxy (the event was hosted by Microsoft Belgium) that blocked my connection to the Microsoft Push Notification Service (go figure...).
Anyway, I hope to speak at Visug again in the future, the slides and demos from yesterday's event can be downloaded here.
Here in Belgium we .net developers have an awesome community. An entire washlist of User groups (including the Windows Phone User Group that I'm a founding member off) that organise free events on a regular base.
Once a year all user groups get together for a full day, completely free event called Community Day. This year Community Day will take place on June 21st and will have 6 tracks full of IT-pro and developer sessions.
For me it will be the third time that I'll attend this great event but it will be my first time actually doing a session there, I'll be presenting about converting a Windows Phone 7 application to Windows 8 Metro. I'm really looking forward to this as I never talked in front of such a big audience, let alone did a talk in a movie theatre.
If you're attending as well, feel free to come talk to me about anything.
See you there!
