2013 was a year of several Microsoft product releases: Windows 8, Windows Server 8, Office 2013, Windows Phone 8, Visual Studio 2012, SQL Server 2012, Microsoft Surface… What can we expect from the year 2013? Let’s start with a look back to 2012.
A personal look back to 2012
With my workshops, I had a huge demand for WPF workshops (that’s similar to 2011). This year also ASP.NET MVC and HTML5 was in demand – I also had some workshops to develop Windows Store Apps. Parallel Programming was a hot topic in 2012 as well.
With my own Websites, I moved to Windows Azure in 2012. http://www.kantine.at and http://www.cninnovation.com is hosted by Windows Azure Websites. Besides Azure Websites, I’m also using SQL Azure and Blob Storage for these sites.
My first Windows Store apps are in the store:
Picture Search is used for searching images via Bing Search – and sharing images, as well es doing slide shows:
Kantine (only available in Austria) shows menus of the week. The restaurant opens again on 7-January, so the next menus will be shown that day.
What can be expected from 2013? Let’s wait for the first blog entry of 2013.
I wish you all the best in the New Year!
