I was a speaker at Microsoft Ignite 2017

Microsoft Ignite 2017 (September 25–29) is the biggest Microsoft event of the year! This time it's held in sunny and hot Orlando, Florida. Coming from Paris with a short stopover in Atlanta, and especially that period of the year I appreciate the warm breeze and humid evenings. Zero hurricanes was a big relief.

ALT.NET TALKS 2016.11

Last Thursday, I attended an awesome ALT.NET meetup made up of 3 speakers here in Paris. It is organized every last Thursday each month. It is a great opportunity to give a talk/light talk for a friendly audience. ALT.Net is a group of passionate .NET developers looking to improve the way software is developed. They recognize that there is no single solution to a problem but that there is a multitude of alternatives that can be applied in different situations. Such a community is a place dedicated to sharing these alternatives, so that "alternative developers" can collectively learn, encourage and teach these new ideas. Meetings are organized monthly in Paris. [TALK#1] Rui Carvalho : News, Development on...
