Pretty cool. Bring a 1 meter tower of books to Sony during IFA and get a free Sony Reader PRS-T2

Seen over on http://t3n.de

The first 100 visitors to get a 1 meter tower of their old books to the Sony store on Potsdamer Platz in Berlin on Thursday at 7pm will get it switched for a new Sony Reader PRS-T2.

Pretty cool… Sad it’s just going down in Berlin.

For people having problems viewing the TechDays 2010 agenda on mobile Safari… #tdch10


The Silverlight based agenda has a plug-in free version for browsers that don’t render it. The link is shown if Silverlight is not detected, but shows up a little torn on Mobile Safari, so here is the direct link to the HTML only version of the agenda: http://www.microsoft.com/switzerland/msdn/de/techdays/AgendaSimple.aspx

Windows Phone content at MIX2010 officially announced on the MIX site.

Yes, at MIX10 you’ll learn about developing applications and games for the next generation of Windows Phone. Yes, we’ll have Phone sessions, and we can’t say more…yet. Stay tuned and check back often or join the MIX mailing list.

First two “Silverlight 4 & WCF RIA Services LOB App” Hands-On Lab classes full, third opened.

I just finished writing the currently 101 pages hands-on lab manual for our “Creating a line-of-business application using Silverlight 4 and the new .NET WCF RIA Services framework” lab coming up next week. Our two dates for the event, Thursday, January 14 and Friday, January 15 morning are already fully booked, so we opened a new, third date, Friday January 15 in the afternoon.   Writing these labs is absolutely great, but a lot of work as we do it all from scratch. So seeing many participants signing up is really good.   If you want to attend for free, visit http://msdn.microsoft.com/de-ch/aa570302.aspx?EventID=1032382649. It’s going to take place in Wallisellen.


The entire lab manual will also be available for download after the event, in case you are interested but can’t attend.



This is what the final app will look like, including printing and Excel integration.

Microsoft MIX10 has Open Call for Content for everyone to participate!

Do you have a session idea and would like to present it at MIX10? We invite you
to submit your ideas on topics that explore design, web development or business
around building innovative web sites. While it is not required to address
Microsoft-specific technologies, entries should consider interoperability. Join
the dialogue and share your inspiration and expertise as we build The Next Web

I am very much looking forward to this conference that will be a huge thing for everybody doing web- and Windows phone development (as announced at the day 2 keynote of PDC2009 in Los Angeles).

This open call for content will add some interesting sessions to the Mix-session-mix, I am convinced!
