We organized Microsoft TechDays 2013 in Antwerp two weeks ago, where we welcomed close to 2900 IT Professionals, Developers and Students all enjoying 90+ sessions with top content led by a broad selection of international and local top speakers. A special THANK YOU goes to our partners, our MVP’s and MEET (Microsoft Extended Experts Team) members and of none the least, all our enthusiastic attendees! Check out the pictures to get an idea!
The session videos and slides are now available on www.techdays.be! (Re)live the sessions and take the next steps to truly master the technologies.
Here’s a selection of my favorite picks out of the difficult to choose from list!
