MS Days 2010

  Microsoft Bulgaria announced the dates for this year MS Days event – 30-31 March. The agenda is not finalized yet, but you can see all the speakers, become a fan in event Facebook Page, or follow the tweets.

This year there will be only one event covering sessions for both developers and IT Pros – Silverlight, ASP.NET 4.0, Visual Studio 2010, WCF, Windows 7, Windows Azure, Windows Server family, Office, etc.

I’ll held two sessions -

  • Beyond corporate site with futuristic Silverlight application (Level 300)
    The presentation will familiarize you with the opportunities that Silverlight provides us, to create a "rich", and almost surreal futuristic web application. Starting from the vision of the designer we will get to use everything the technology provides to get the job done. However we will fight with the creation of many futuristic objects, animations, and last but not least Productivity, User Experience and accessibility.
  • Expression Blend and Encoder for developers (Level 200)
    The session will present key practices in useing Expression Blend, how to make prototypes with SketchFlow and how can Expression Encoder help us in in processing and streaming audio / video.

Miroslav Miroslavov will join me for the first session as he is the developer for the demo that we will show. It will be a fantastic session so don’t miss it!

Other MVPs from Bulgaria – including Martin Kulov and Branimir Giurov, and world wide (Daron Yöndem from Turkey) will also present on MS Days this year so it would definitely be a fun event!
