Week 50 – SDN Cast 32: VS 2017 RC Update, Cortana

image

Last week we had our ‘quarterly’ SDN Event with as ‘special’ a couple of speakers from Canada and Italy! For the Delphi Track we invited Marco Cantù, Delphi Product Manager with Embarcadero, and Andrea Magni – Embarcadero MVP Delphi, both from Italy. Marco and Andrea completely filled the Delphi track for the full day. We also flew in Dick Moffat from Canada to enlighten us on the developments on Power BI. Dick Moffat also joined us as a guest live in our 31st SDN Cast at my house. Obviously all other speakers at the SDN Event provided us with their high quality sessions and by now their session slides are available at our SDN website: : https://www.sdn.nl/EVENTS/9-december-2016. We also did broadcast the Power BI/Excel sessions live through our SDN Cast site: www.sdncast.nl so if you missed it your can go back and watch our recordings for these sessions. For next year we already planned the dates for the first three SDN Events, look at the events list below and add them to your schedule.

As promised we also picked the three winners for the Resharper licenses among the registered attendees and the winners are:

· Adriaan van Lent
· Rene Tielemans en
· Ton Soont

These guys will get the licenses mailed on their registration address, congratulations! We also want to thank JetBrains for their contribution at our event!
