On 8 march 2013, my colleague Ad Reijngoudt (Windows 8 App developer, follow him on twitter: @Areijngoudt) and I spoke on the dutch Techdays on the subject: “SharePoint 2013 and windows 8 app – better together”. After this session, we got a lot of questions on several subjects, so I decided to write some blogposts on these subjects.
On 7 and 8 March, the yearly returning TechDays event was held in the Netherlands. This was already the 4th year in a row that I was visiting the event as a speaker, with a total of 6 sessions. I wasn’t the only speaker ofAchmea; some colleague’s of mine were speaking as well. (Fact: Alex thissen spoke for the eleventh year in a row. He lost track on the amount of sessions 😉 We had a great diversity on subjects (Security, SharePoint , ALM, windows 8) and I’ll give a quick overview of the content covered in our sessions.
