As always, multi-mania was awesome. Great speakers, great sessions and lot of time to network with all kinds of people. From Designer to Developer to whatever.

Like the last 4 years, Dieter and I did a session. This year we did a session that combines pretty much everything together:

  • Windows Phone
  • Windows 8
  • Azure
  • and a microcontroller

If you coudn’t make it, here is a link to our slides.

Thanks Koen en Els for having us.

Multi-Mania is back!! YEAHH

One of my favorite things to look forward to each year is the Multi-Mania congres. 2 days of sessions of all sort of topics: inspirational, technical and even comedy from time to time.

The guys of MM did a great job getting great speakers from around the world:

  • Joshua Davis
  • Lea Verou
  • Mr.Tommy.Zee

This year, Dieter and I will give a session on “Developing cross platform applications using Azure Mobile Services” which is going to be technical and fun at the same time.

Hope to see you there

Every Web Developer is a Win8 developer presentation on MultiMania

First of all, I had a great time on MultiMania and met a lot of great people over there. People from different worlds. Every day I work mainly in a Microsoft world, developing websites with ASP.NET MVC but I’m also busy in HTML5, CSS3 and the combination is something that I love.

But on MultiMania I had the chance to talk to Adobe people, Game creators, … Some talks were inspirational, other ones were technical and that what it’s all about isn’t it!

On MultiManie Dieter and I gave a presentation on Win8 development and how you can use your existing web skills to build Metro applications.

In case you’ve missed it, here are the slides: http://www.slideshare.net/kevinderudder/every-web-developer-is-a-win8-developer

Building metro style apps with HTML5, CSS and JavaScript

On 21 and 22 of may multi-mania takes place in Kortrijk. Like every year you will be able to follow various of workshops on day 1 and a number of sessions on day 2.

Now, hang on, the best part of it all is: IT’S FREE, NADA, NOTHING, so you don’t have any excuse to stay away.

On day 1: I will be your host together with Dieter De Preester and Frederik Duchi on building metro style applications with HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript.

Learn how you can use your web skills to build Windows 8 Metro style apps using HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. In this session you’ll discover how to harness the rich capabilities of Windows 8 through JavaScript and the Windows Runtime.

You will learn about navigation, user experience patterns and controls and the seamless integration with the operating system that will let you create great Metro style apps.

On day 2: Dieter and I will show you that every Web Developer is a Win 8 Developer

HTML5 is a first class citizen inside the windows 8 eco system. In this session you will learn how to create windows 8 metro style applications using HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3.

Off course, you’ll have a bunch of other sessions where you can take a look at. If you are interested in more win 8, join Katrien De Graeve and meet her at the metro.

Metro is the name of the Design Language for applications in Windows 8. Join us for a ride on the key principles behind Metro Design, the inspiration and some great examples as we move into the future with Windows 8 Metro Style Apps.
