KulenDayz, TugaIT and All Access – Event Recap

During the summer period there is always a bit of downtime in the conference season. That gives some time to prepare new sessions, explore new technologies or new combinations of technology that can be used to create new content.

But because not being able to talk about anything at all I did attend a number of events, All Access Amsterdam, Tuga IT and Kulendayz. At these events I delivered the following presentations:

All three events were very different in regards to how they were set up, to give a frame of reference: One event was held in an Amsterdam canal house, another in a Microsoft office and the last at a shooting range. But the common thread through each of these events was the fact that everyone was very eager to interact and discuss technology.

Because just sharing the photos is obviously only half the work, I have also shared the code on GitHub in my Events repository:

I also shared the slides I used and my other presentations on SlideShare:


Wrap up of Tuga IT Conference in Lisbon

Last week I attended and delivered two presentations at Tuga IT in the Microsoft HQ in Lisbon. It was a great experience and a first visit to Lisbon to me, which gave me the change to interact with the local IT communities there. Tuga IT is a conference put together by nine separate user groups based in Portugal.

To give you an impression of the event I included the following pictures:

All the code and slides are as always available in my Events GitHub repository:

Furthermore I have also uploaded my presentations to Docs and SlideShare:
