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!

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.

Magnus is also a passionate OSS enthusiast with several projects on his contribution list for instance Azure Contrib. (@noopman)
