Software News and events for week 31

SDN Cast

Every week I collect the news for our webcast. I thought it was a good idea to also share the news here on my blog: The news for week 31 as we discussed in our Dutch SDN Cast Channel. A weekly informal webcast where we discuss the news, events and everything to know on what is going on in software land.

This week the news and events and as special guest we invited Dick Moffat to discuss and demo the latest tech on Power BI. This part obviously is English, where our webcast usually is Dutch.

Where is the webcast to be found?
