Presentation on Apache Cordova and Visual Studio Tools for Cordova CTP3.1

Yesterday I had an all-day workshop with a very large bank in Scandinavia where we discussed their opportunities in the cross-platform mobile development space. Lately I have been working with both Xamarin and Apache Cordova — two very good frameworks for cross-plat dev. I put together this presentation on Apache Cordova and spiced it up with some cool demos using the latest CTP of the Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova.

By the way, check out the latest set of Cordova Tools for Visual Studio here:

Back from Africa, Microsoft 4Afrika Rocks!

As I wrote in an earlier post, I have been in South Africa for the past week to help The Open Medicine Project — a really cool startup founded by two medical doctors who are trying to change the world of medicine in developing countries through the use of mobile technology. I spend a lot of my time with startups and, honestly, it’s been a long time since I have met a startup being so passionate and visionary about what they’re doing. It was truly inspiring to work with Mohammed and Yaseen during my week in Cape Town and I am happy that we agreed to continue working together even now that I am back in Denmark.

Campus Days 2014 app built with Apache Cordova

Next week Microsoft is arranging the largest technical conference in Denmark. It’s called Campus Days 2014 and boasts 11 tracks and more than 120 sessions on everything from web development to unified communications to Windows client and server. It will take place over the course of three days in the largest movie theater in Copenhagen, called CinemaxX, and the conference is already sold out.

You can read more about it here: campusdays.dk

And here: channel9.msdn.com/Events/Microsoft-Campus-Days/Microsoft-Campus-Days-2014

All of the sessions are available through Channel 9 and we planned on encouraging the event participants to use the Channel 9 event app to check out the sessions at the conference. That app, however, is on its way out so we needed another app to serve its purpose. So on this cold and grey Saturday I sat down to build a new app using Apache Cordova and the Cordova Tools for Visual Studio (CTP3) and I just released it:

There’s also a web version available here: http://aka.ms/campusdays
