eCraft Labs site launched


The geeks at eCraft have banded together and launched a site, There will be code, there will be apps and there will be articles on a wide range of topics.

I’ve just wrapped up my part of Microsoft TechDays 2009 in Helsinki, and I’m finally at home decompressing. It was a fun event, I did two breakout sessions (one on Windows Azure and one on local data+cloud data+sync framework) and two chalk talks (on Microsoft Surface, together with my colleague Mikael Riska). I’m happy with all four, I think they went well. I won’t post the slides tonight, since I’m too tired to wait for SlideShare to process all 30+meg worth of Powerpoints. Over the weekend there will probably be a post or two about TechDays, and now that Microsoft...
