It’s this time of year again where the Microsoft Belux ISV team organizes the ISV Community & Discovery day. On February 24, we will bring you an update on Microsoft’s newest innovations, plans for the future and vision on partner relationships.  We are particularly excited to present special guest star Steve Clayton, storyteller @ Microsoft Corporation, who will talk to us about what’s next at Microsoft.

We realize that partnership has always been key to the success of our products and services. It is therefore important to us to clearly show that partnership remains a corner stone of our strategy.

With groundbreaking innovations such as cloud computing and touch interfaces redefining the way customers deploy and use technology, Microsoft reviews the way we design, develop and market our products and services.  We will zoom in on a couple of new and exciting Microsoft technologies and showcase the development opportunities for Windows Phone 7, Slate PCs and the Windows Azure Platform.

Additionally, this event gives you the opportunity to mingle with and get to know the renewed Microsoft Belux ISV Team. And last, but not least, attend this event and have a chance to win a Kinect + Xbox 360!
