10 things every .NET developer should know about Windows 8

19 Oct

Yesterday I did a talk at CNUG about Windows 8. I talked about 10 things every .NET developer should know about Windows 8.

So what are the 10 things every .NET developer should know about Windows 8 – if you got 90 minutes to present them? I choose these 10 topics:

  • Design does matter
  • Snap and Scale Beautifully
  • Presenting Data
  • DataTemplateSelector
  • Async is Great
  • Use the right Contracts
  • Invest in a Great Tile
  • Connected and Alive
  • Take care of Process Lifetime
  • Notice the Fine Print

Some of the topics are quite large – how can you talk about presenting data or async in less then 10 minutes?! Seriously!! Well I hope the participants got a good glimpse at some of the cool features available in Windows 8 and that some of them enjoy their really cool Bluefragments Windows 8 t-shirt :)

You can get my slides and my demo from my SkyDrive http://sdrv.ms/PE4pqm.

CNUG reached 1000 members

1 Mar

A few months ago I blogged that the Copenhagen .NET UserGroup had reached 900 members (http://wp.me/psB7P-ba). Today CNUG reached 1000 members – almost 0.02 percent of the Danish population.

Looking forward it is the plan to host one monthly meeting. A handfull of dedicated members is making sure that the meetings are planned and executed – and they handle the social events. Remember to give them some credit at the next meeting :) You can get an overview of future and past meetings at http://cnug.eventbrite.com.

Windows 8 talk

9 Feb

Yesterday I did a Windows 8 talk with Martin Jepsen (red. partner in Bluefragments). During our 3 hour long talk we talked about developing Metro Style Apps, Windows 8 contracts and WinRT. We got lots of good questions from the 85 people who participated which gave a relaxed atmosphere – thank you for that!

Slides from the talk can be downloaded here.

CNUG reaches 900 members

11 Jan

Yesterday I wrote a proud post about how the Windows Phone usergroup had reached 400+ members. Today I can write another very proud post about the Copenhagen .NET Usergroup (CNUG) – we have reached 900 members! Wow!

When I joined the inner circle a few years back I never thought that we was able to take the group to the size it got today. We have never had better enrollments for our events then what we have had for the last 6 months and we have a really good relationship with many companies in the Copenhagen area.

Thank you all for making this group real – I’m fucking proud of being part of it!

Flødeboller til alle – opfølgning

10 Jan

Tilbage i december (http://xamlgeek.net/2010/12/15/fldeboller-til-alle/) lovede jeg flødeboller til alle medlemmer af CNUG, SLDEV og WPDEV hvis det samlede medlemstal nåede op på minimum 900 den 31. december 2010.

Jeg må blankt indrømme at jeg var lidt nervøs den 30. december da medlemstallet stod på 899 – og den 31. december om eftermiddagen kom så anmodningen fra medlem nummer 900. BANG! Så er det sgu bare ud og købe flødeboller, Thomas Martinsen! 

I kan derfor godt forvente at der vil være flødeboller I forbindelse med de kommende CNUG, SLDEV og WPDEV events :)

Flødeboller til alle

15 Dec

Spørger du mig, så går det går rigtig fint for de danske IT brugergrupper. Jeg sidder selv som kernemedlem (en af dem der arrangerer alle møderne) i 3 brugergrupper:

- CNUG (Copenhagen .NET Usergroup)
- SLDEV (Silverlight developers in DK)
- WPDEV (Windows Phone developers in DK)

SLDEV og WPDEV er et par forholdsvis nye brugergrupper, men har allerede fået stor tilslutning og vi har fået afholdt nogle virkelig spændende arrangementer. CNUG har kørt i nogle år og har senest fået 3 nye kernemedlemmer og vi har planlagt en masse emner til foråret 2011 – de bliver offentliggjort meget snart sammen med vores nye hjemmeside.

Samlet set har de 3 brugergrupper 878 medlemmer!!

Den naturlige tilgang af medlemmer betyder, at vi formodentlig runder 890 medlemmer inden årets udgang. Jeg syntes dog, at det kunne være super fedt hvis vi kom over 900 medlemmer inden årets udgang. Derfor vil jeg gerne give flødeboller til alle(!) medlemmer hvis de 3 brugergruppe har mere end 900 medlemmer den 31. december 2010.

Why? Why not!
