Software News and Events for Week 40/41- .NET, Dynamics and HoloLens

SDNCast 24

Last week Microsoft was in the Amsterdam RAI with their TechDays 2016. A two-day conference with lots of great sessions to learn a thing or two. Marcel Meijer, Fanie Reynders and I were there as well in the Experts Lounge to answer some questions from the community and to look at some sessions ourselves and learn. While we were around anyway, we decided that it would be a good idea to take some interviews with some of the speakers and record scenes from the venue just for entertainment purposes. You can go to http://www.sdncast.nl to watch the results of it. Keep in mind that as our audience is Dutch the recordings are also Dutch for the large part.

As we skipped the week of news and events, we covered this week the news and events for two weeks. Fanie couldn’t make it this week and he is also very busy preparing his sessions for next week at our Dutch .NET Meetup.

Where can you find the Dutch SDN Cast edition 24?
