Week 9 – SDN Cast News, looking for the answer with André Obelink

SDNCast 42

With the twentieth anniversary of Visual Studio and the forty-second broadcast of our Dutch SDN Cast we speak with André Obelink on the subject of VB (Visual Basic) and the future of it. Forty-two is also the answer to life, the universe and all according to the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Enough reasons to check out the recording on YouTube for this week.

André Obelink is Microsoft MVP and author of six books, five covering Visual Basic and the sixth written with co-author Sander Gerz on C#.

You can find André Obelink at several places such as
Twitter: @obelink
Website: http://www.obelink.com/

A returning question by many developers is will Visual Basic be around in the near future and if so where will it be positioned by Microsoft. A valid question, as it often appears that also with Microsoft Visual Basic seems to be the ‘forgotten’ language. APIs, sample code and documentation is released for C# at first and following a bit later the VB submission (sometimes we are still waiting for VB equivalents to arrive). We discuss all of this in depth, so if you are Dutch speaking look at this week’s Dutch SDN Cast.

Next to Visual Basic several other subjects get by, from the light-hearted topics such as Xbox Gaming to the very extensive exercise to write books and again – is there a future in book writing.

All in all enough topics making it well worth to jump to YouTube and watch the recording of the 42nd Dutch SDN Cast if you haven’t already watched it live last week.

Week 7 SDN Cast News and Party Time!

SDNCast 40

It’s party time! There was even more than one party, a lot to celebrate this week! Obviously, starting with our own fortieth SDN Cast and that’s a number worth mentioning.

But there is more. In 1997, twenty years ago now, Visual Studio was released and this week there was announced that the upcoming version “Visual Studio 2017” will be released starting March 7th in an online event by Microsoft and local events will be organized at various locations around the world between March 7 and April 30th. Look for it in the links below to see if there are any events in your area to go to. We will obviously spend some attention as well on our next SDN Event – March 17, with some sessions in this area.

And we’re not there yet, five years after the first release of Visual Studio Microsoft changed direction by releasing Visual Studio .NET and as the name reveals, birth of .NET. The new way of programming with the new .NET framework. Until that time everyone was working with MFC -Microsoft Foundation Classes- libraries or other technologies. There was a big change in the way we were going to develop and brought many new features, think of the Roslyn language services. This allowed all sorts of new benefits where we haven’t seen the end of it.

A lot of attention for the past, but there is a lot of interesting new stuff to come in the near future. We are looking forward to the release of Visual Studio 2017.

Week 4 SDN Cast News with Pieter Fouché on ARM

SDNCast 37

The guest of our first SDN Cast has returned for SDN Cast 37. Well, not quite the first, we did a couple of dry runs to try things out before going live with or first live casts. But lets keep it at that this was the first public cast. Our guest on the first SDN Cast as well as this one is Pieter Fouché.

Today his subject are not the pooping cats using the restroom for humans but is showing how to use automation with the Azure Resource Manager. So, something completely different and more suitable to use on a wider scope (although you can imagine there could be a potential market to use your own toilet to service the cats instead of having to clean out the litter box on a regular interval). Pieter shows us what you can do with ARM (Azure Resource Manager) and how you can take repetitive work away by coding.

Pieter, a developer from origin coming from South Africa is English speaking but we can address him in Dutch as he has no problem understanding the Dutch language at all. Very useful for us (ok not for the English viewers – sorry …), asking the questions in Dutch and getting the answers in English.

Maybe there is something in this video you can use in your work or just watch this SDN Cast to develop yourself. Yeah, international readers probably don’t get it as most of it is in Dutch, but at least you have the news item links, I’m shure there is always something of use below.

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!

SDN Cast 29 Week 47 News and Events – Happy Holidays, Black Friday and Cyber Monday

sdncast-29_110_110

Traditionally from a US point of view one of the main sources for news and information on Software Development is shutting down. It is the week in the United States where everybody is moving home to celebrate their annual day of Thanksgiving to eat turkey and much more than that. No one is releasing any news in this week or even the week after (we did find a few exceptions as you can see in the news overview below). The day after Thanksgiving retail stores start their big day of sales called Black Friday, who hasn’t seen the videos where large groups of people all run into the stores falling over each other and steal products from other customers baskets? Following Black Friday there is Cyber Monday, originally meant to do the same as Black Friday but now for online retail stores. Both days did merge a bit and we see a whole week of online offers on great discounts. What did you buy today?

Even though it’s quiet this week we did find some interesting news items and discussed it at our SDN Cast this week. The number of events is dropping around this time, Connect(); by Microsoft was about the one big closing event. The videos are currently available on Channel9 if you want to watch them.

Where can you find the 29th edition of our Dutch SDN Cast?

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?
