A few weeks back Bluefragments was nominated in two categories for Microsoft Partner Award 2013.
Unfortunately I couldn’t attend the award show but Martin Jepsen and Deani Hansen took my place instead. I was told that it was a great evening and there was a really good atmosphere. Maybe that have something to do with the fact that we won the Microsoft App Partner Award 2013. YEAH!
This have everything to do with our awesome customers, a really great team in Bluefragments and a good relationship with Microsoft Danmark. Thank you everybody!

Last week I was informed that my company, Bluefragments, is nominated for a Microsoft Partner Award 2013. We are nominated in two different categories:
- Innovation Partner of the Year
- App Partner of the Year
This nomination have only been possible due to hard work from the entire team – both employees and freelancers. A big thank you to everybody in the team for your awesome effort.
We are really proud of the nomination and are looking forward to the award show on the 21st November 2013 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
A few weeks back Bluefragments announced the beginning of a new Windows 8 SWAT team. We received several applications from a lot of qualified developers and designers from all over Denmark.
In the previous months, I have talked to a number of companies in Denmark, to find an event that would fit into the first Bluefragments Windows 8 SWAT event. Today I’m thrilled to announce that Bluefragments have made an agreement with a major Danish media company to do a news center for Windows 8.
There are a variety of news apps for Windows 8. However many of them are made with no special focus on the Windows 8 platform. This is an unique opportunity for a news app that dares to stand out and take advantage of all the features the Windows 8 platform offers.
Look forward to an awesome news app coming to the Windows Store really soon.
A few weeks back a handful of awesome developers, designers and volunteers met to build this year’s Roskilde Festival for Windows Phone. Today we pushed the big button and published the app with the 2013 program and a bunch of great features. We build the app in just 72 hours and the result is amazing … well, if you don’t believe, go ahead and check it out yourself! :)
You can download the app from the Windows Phone store here:
Give it some love, send some warm thoughts to the developers, designers and volunteers – and see you at Roskilde in a few weeks!
Did you know that about 6 months ago, Bluefragments released its first game ever?! We did – and we got some great reviews on it. It’s a memory game for kids (in all ages) and it was developed by our very own Deani Hansen. He even did all of the animals himself (awesome, dude!).
Go check it out at http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/app/blue-memory-game/fd38f491-e036-46cf-943a-c7b0a21413f0 and give it some love if you like it.
In Bluefragments we love to do fun stuff. For the last couple of weeks we have been working on a BUILD app for Windows Store.
We wanted to build an app that is great to navigate through the content of the BUILD 13 conference. At the same time it should work as an archive over the previous BUILD conferences allowing the user to watch recorded sessions and published slides and demos. Last week we published first version. We have got a lot of great feedback and the next version in certification at the moment. We expect it to be public within a few days.
We’re working hard to finish our BUILD app for Windows Phone as well. First version will include the BUILD 13 program. Stay tuned!
If you got any feedback, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I denne måneds udgave af PROSA har de en artikel om Windows 8 – “Windows 8 under overfladen” – skrevet af Dan Mygin. Artiklen er baseret på et interview med undertegnede og Jørgen Andersen og ser på nogle af de muligheder og udfordringer som både udviklere står overfor i forbindelse med den nu lancerede Windows 8.
Du kan se hele artiklen her på siden 18 – http://bit.ly/prosa-nov-2012.
Jeg kan også anbefale artiklen på side 70, hvor Dan Mygin har snakket med Brian Rasmussen.
Jeg har tidligere skrevet om en række Silverlight workshops som jeg afholder I løbet af de kommende 4 måneder. Alle workshops foregår onsdag aften på ITU fra kl. 18:00-21:00.
Nu ligger der også 2 kurser på tegnebrættet – et “Introduktion til Silverlight 4”-kursus og et “Avanceret Silverlight 4”-kursus. Begge kurser ligger i starten af april.
For at gøre det hele en smule mere overskueligt har jeg opdateret silverlightkursus.dk så den fremover viser en oversigt over alle workshops, kurser og foredrag som Bluefragments står for.
Derudover afholder den danske Silverlight brugergruppe (SLDEV) en række spændende events som kan ses på http://sldev.eventbrite.com/.
During the next 4-5 months I will do a series of Silverlight workshops. Each workshop is a practical hands-on workshop with focus on one subject. The level of each workshop vary but is clearly marked on each workshop.
The Application Model
All workshops will be held in Danish in Copenhagen, Denmark. The workshops are hosted by Bluefragments.
Det er med stor fornøjelse, at jeg kan sige velkommen til Martin Jepsen som ny partner i Bluefragments ApS.
Martin har stor ekspertise indenfor udvikling i .NET og kommer fra en stilling som selvstændig .NET konsulent. Martin har tidligere siddet som blandt andet kompetence manager hos HiQ gennem 9 år.
