Pictures of the Dutch 2014 TechDays

Last week, Microsoft Netherlands organized the 2014 TechDays at the World Forum in The Hague, where both Dutch and Belgian Developers and IT Professionals enjoyed two days of sessions, networking opportunities and catering.

On Wednesday April 16th, Raymond Comvalius and I were scheduled to deliver a 75-minute presentation on Bring Your Own (BYO), so we arrived early. Luckily, the event also started early both days, with the first sessions starting at 7:45 AM each day.

Our session was scheduled for 10:50 AM in room Onyx. This room was fitted with 300 seats, a nice stage and two projection screens.

Our session was great fun, and afterwards we received some great feedback. Needless to say I was proud of our achievement.

After our session, I dumped my stuff in the speaker room, switched from my blue Speaker polo to the orange Expert polo, and headed for the Ask the Experts (AtE) Area. I also spent the larger part of Thursday April 17th at the Ask the Experts (AtE) Area. A lot of my buddies were there and we had a lot of fun. The XBox One combined with Experts proved to be a real crowd pleaser.

I had a blast, and I hope you did too. Glimlach
