logo_techdays09 Two days ago I had the pleasure to drive a across our snowy country to meet an ISV near Brugge. We discussed their solution and their development process and tools.

It became clear that we have a great agenda for developers at our TechDays. We really have sessions that talk to all aspects of developing a solution. The agenda mapped perfectly to the needs of the developers at that ISV.

Our preconference is great for our developers building solutions on Sharepoint. I said it before and I will say it again, there are not enough Sharepoint developers in the market! http://www.microsoft.com/belux/techdays/developers_preconf.aspx

The general days offers something for every developer: http://www.microsoft.com/belux/techdays/developers_conf.aspx
