Tech Days in the North

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

Thursday this week found me attending a technical community day just outside Leeds.  The event was organised by Black Marble and covered the recent Visual Studio 2010 launch.  The morning saw an overview of the tools by Matt Dunn from Microsoft along with a demonstration of Team Foundation Server features and how they integrate into the software development life cycle.  The highlight of the day was a talk by Jesse Liberty covering Silverlight.  Whilst light on technical content his talk was very entertaining covering his introduction to Microsoft and the evolution of Silverlight.  If you get the chance I would recommend that you take the time to attend one of his presentations as he is a very entertaining presenter.
