Basta! On Tour Samples
Welcome 2011

Bye, bye 2010

Just a few hours before the next year starts. My look back to 2010:

2010 has been a great year where I didn’t spent a single night in the hospital Smile. In 2009 it was just too many days and nights. I’ve just been in the hospital during the birth of my son Matthias. This was a great experience, and Matthias is really growing fast. He needs to catch up to Stephanie Winking smile

Business-related I’ve been mostly busy with WPF, Silverlight, Entity Framework, ASP.NET, and .NET 4. I helped developers on their way to the ASP.NET certification, helped several companies moving their applications to Windows 7, and also learned companies how to use Windows Azure, WCF, WF, and other .NET technologies.

Conferences have been fun in Darmstadt, Mainz, and Munich where I’ve done C# 4, LINQ, Code Contracts, WPF Data Binding…

The PDC conference (this time in Redmond) information on Windows Azure, IE 9 and HTML 5.

The Silverlight FireStarter had some information what’s coming with Silverlight 5.

The newest edition of the Professional C# book (Professional C# 4 and .NET 4) was released in March. This is  a 1536-page book with several additional chapters for download from the Web. Currently I’m working on one chapter of an MVP book that will be released in 2011.

During the holidays I’m using a Microsoft Kinect to play with the family. I never had a game console until I got the XBox 360 for free with my Windows Phone 7, so I’m not a hard core player. I bought a Kinect and some games, and the first experience is really great. Kinect is cool for the whole family!

With the Windows Phone 7 I’m developing some small applications. I really like the usability of WP7 devices in special how things I’m doing are connected. For example different calendars in one place, contacts from different sources (Facebook, Exchange, LinkedIn…) in one place…

Beside coaching companies on WPF, Silverlight, Entity Framework…,I’ve spent some time developing applications for Windows Azure, making use of the Windows Azure platform, using SQL Azure, the Azure AppFabric… I’ve done some ASP.NET MVC development to move a Website to MVC…

All really great stuff in 2010. In my next blog entry you can read what I’m expecting from 2011.

I wish you A Happy New Year 2011
