The 11th edition of the Microsoft TechDays in Belgium will be held in Kinepolis Antwerp on 5-7 March 2013. Year after year, thousands of developers & IT professionals gather at this 3 day conference to dive deep into Microsoft technologies and learn about the latest products and solutions.
We are working hard to get the best and most knowledgeable speakers to Antwerp. We have already announced more than 30 speakers and over 60 sessions on http://techdays.be.
Hot topics of the 2013 edition will be Windows 8, Visual Studio 2012, Windows Server 2012, Windows Azure, System Center, Exchange 2013, the New Office, Windows Phone 8, … and much more.
To give attendees more value for their time and money, we’re also introducing hands-on labs in two dedicated rooms to try our solutions at their own terms. We will have a good number of labs to choose from, covering different technologies and scenarios (ranging from Windows 8 to System Center to Windows Phone development). More info about these labs can be found in a blogpost by Arlindo Alves.

Every year, we ask our partners and customers for feedback. On many occasions, partners have raised communication and the overload of it.
Introducing…. www.netgenoeg.info or www.justeassez.info, your one-stop shop where you – as a partner – can indicate what information you want and where to find it. Because let’s face it, it’s not always that clear who to follow on Twitter, or to become member of what LinkedIn group. Let alone finding the right email in the overload in your inbox.
Our goal is to send fewer mails, but more tuned to your needs. You will also see different colors in the mails. There are 3 flavors:
- the green ones: information on MPN or generic partner events
- the blue ones: anything that goes out from a sub community of partners
- the pink(ish) ones: all relevant information on training
So, go the site, indicate what your areas of interests are and you can immediately subscribe to the relevant newsletters or join the LinkedIn groups.
Let us know what you think about this and you can send us your feedback: via email, Twitter, LinkedIn and yes, even by regular post.
