  • Speaker at DevTeach Montreal 2011


    I am really happy that I’ve just been selected to speak at DevTeach Montreal 2011 (may 30 – june 03, include pre and post-conference).

    My session is part of the Software Architecture Track:
    Visual Studio LightSwitch, a new option for application architecture
    Build amazing and robust data-driven Silverlight Application with Visual Studio LightSwitch. This newcomer in the Visual Studio suite allows you to create business applications with little to no code. But I will show you in a technical demo how to customize and extend its capabilities. Wow effect guaranteed! Architects and developers welcome! 

    More on the conference content:

    I’m truly happy to see DevTeach coming back to Montreal, and I really look forward to it, as a speaker nothing come close to DevTeach in Canada.

  • Microsoft Silverlight MVP one more time

    Another wonderful first email of the year… announcing that I’ve just been re-awarded Most Valuable Professional (MVP) by Microsoft for Silverlight. This is my 5th year as an MVP in a row and I am still very honoured and excited!

    In 2010 I had the pleasure to be involved in many community events around Silverlight, speaking at Microsoft conferences and user groups (doing the launch of the Vancouver Silverlight User Group was fun!), as well as taking part in worldwide conference like MIX Las Vegas and the MVP Summit in Redmond. Also I did new kind of activities in 2010: I wrote questions for the first Microsoft Silverlight certification exam (70-506), and I was Technical reviewer of 3 Silverlight books. I finally started to share more on Twitter @LaurentDuveau.

    In 2010 the content of this blog was mostly about Silverlight, I expect it to be the same in 2011, plus a touch of Windows Phone as well. I already know that 2011 will be hell of a good year.. I’ll be at the next MVP Summit in Seattle, also speaker at DevTeach which comes back to Montreal (at last!) and have some nice Silverlight trainings plans for France and Tunisia. More than that, my business RunAtServer is healthy (proud of my team!) and I have insane news and a very big surprise coming on that front.... stay tuned!

    Happy New Year!
