The 2013 MS Summit, Bucharest
WOW. Why? Because during the previous two days (6-7 November 2013) I had the opportunity to participate in the 2013 MS Summit , which was held in Bucharest. So far it has been one of the biggest IT events organized in Romania this year.
There were more than 1000 people attending, 5 simultaneous tracks and more than 45 speakers. It’s been a while since I last saw such an event in Romania. I was impressed not only by the event itself, but also by the location and the number of attending people.
The session list was extremely interesting; we had sessions held by David Chappell, Chris Capossela, Michael Palermo, and many more. All the sessions were greatand we had the opportunity to learn and discover new ideas. After this event we could say that Microsoft is full of pleasant surprises.
At this event I was invited as a speaker and I held two sessions in which I talked about how we can write and load tests using Visual Studio 2013 and Windows Azure. In the second session I talked about fluent client–server–client communication while using SignalR.
Special thanks to the attendees that stayed until 6:30p.m. on the last day of the event.
I hope that next year Microsoft Romania will organize another MS Summit. This is a great conference that can become highly successful and powerful.
