Look at that, a year has passed since my last blog post. Those last posts were summarizing //Build 2014// and this one will summarize //Build 2015//, so easy for you to follow dear reader. (If you really want to hear more than my blog, I urge you to follow me on twitter, where I tweet my thoughts rather carelessly ).

Hey all, A week before Build// I’ve registered to the Build Hackaton. Hackaton is a process which people are gathered in a room, divided into ad-hoc teams and are driven to create awesome and imaginative apps in a short term of time. http://channel9.msdn.com/Blogs/LauraFoy/BUILD-2012-Hackathon-Kickoff Hackaton has started on Monday, a day which was dedicated to attendee registration, but the hackaton room was already packed with action, a room filled with MS techies (from the relevant Windows8, Windows Azure and Windows Phone teams) were mentoring attendees teams day and night, and attendees who were already...
