What is this??



While at the Norwegian Developer Conference, Carl and Richard collected a couple of stories from the speakers at the event. First up is Magnus Mårtensson and Björn Ekengren talking about Java on Azure. No really! Next, Gill Cleeran and Kevin Dockx talk about where Silverlight is going... to version five and beyond!

Magnus Mårtensson is very passionate about .NET, Software Architecture, software patterns and Windows Azure. His Masters in Computer Science landed him in business around the time of the IT bubble. In Sweden Magnus is a well known .NET community leader and speaker which has earned him membership in the Swedish Microsoft Extended Experts Team (MEET). Being a firm believer in that the only way to gain more knowledge is to give yours away Magnus is an international speaker with the INETA speakers bureau. At Diversify Magnus heads a Windows Azure Competence Center where he leads training and Azure labs for ISV and other clients. Magnus is also a passionate OSS enthusiast with several projects on his contribution list for instance Azure Contrib. (@noopman)

His main focus lies on all things Silverlight, but he still keeps an eye on the new developments concerning other products from the Microsoft .NET (Web) Stack. As a Silverlight enthusiast, he's a regular speaker on various national and international events, like Microsoft DevDays in The Netherlands, Microsoft Techdays in Portugal or on BESUG events (the Belgian Silverlight User Group). Next to that, he also writes articles for various Silverlight-related sites, and he wrote a best-selling Silverlight book, Packt Publishing's Silverlight 4 Data and Services Cookbook (https://www.packtpub.com/microsoft-silverlight-4-data-and-services-cookbook/book ).
