WPDev Fusion: Recordings, Slides and Samples are now available!

Last Wednesday was a special day, after weeks of preparation the first WPDev Fusion kicked off a new initiative with a huge success. With live attendees from all over the world, hundreds of tweets on our #wpdevfusion hashtag and great sessions by our top speakers we couldn’t have imagined a better start. After the success of Windows Phone Week in October we realized something bigger and longer-lasting should be available for our beloved #wpdev community. This event was the first step towards the WPDev Fusion community the will be organizing events and hosting content online throughout 2014 and beyond.

We are well aware that not everyone has been able to attend the full event and therefore we are happy to announce the availability of recordings, slides and samples for every WPDev Fusion session. See the bottom of this post for an overview.

Webcast: Programmieren mit dem .NET Compact Framework – Mobil ist “in” (Rückblick)

Am 24.05. hielten Torsten und ich den im Titel benannten Webcast. Doch bevor es soweit war streikte die Technik. Nachdem diese Hürde jedoch genommen war konnten wir, wie fast geplant, 5 Minuten später beginnen.
Zu Beginn interviewte uns Bernd Marquardt (vielen Dank nochmal an dieser Stelle, daß wir dabei sein durften), wonach wir dann einige Samples zu 2 Kapiteln aus unserem Buch präsentierten.

Wer sich diesen Webcast noch einmal anschauen mag bekommt diesen hier per Download.

Die Samples, wie bereits im Webcast mitgeteilt, gibt es hier.
