Speaking at SoftShake in Geneva October 24th

Post updated September 9th: you can win free Nokia devices during this session !

A short blog post to share some news about me… I will be speaking at Soft-Shake in Geneva later this October.


The session will be an introduction about Windows Phone 8 development and I will cover the following topics:

  • Brief history of Windows Phone 8 and ModernUI
  • Tooling (Visual Studio, Blend)
  • Development story (C#/XAML, C++/DirectX)
  • Tips and tricks (feedback from building my own app 2Day)

Soft-Shake is a 2 days event in Geneva with various tracks which make it very appealing for all of you (like me) who like to have a wide coverage of current technical (or not) subjects:

  • Agile
  • Functional Programming
  • Java
  • Microsoft
  • Web
  • Startup
  • Games
  • BigData

Thanks to Nokia I will have a few giveaways for the attendees. On top of fun and nice Nokia goodies for everyone 2 lucky people will go home with a brand new Windows Phone device to get started with development:


I hope to meet some of you there 🙂

MVP 2013-2014

It has been a long time since my last post… I’m currently very busy at work and also working on my 2Day todo-list application which explains the lack of blog posts in the last few months. I should start playing with Windows 8.1 development very soon so this will definitively be a chance to share some tips with you.

The goods news of this summer for me is that I’ve been renewed as Microsoft MVP for 2013-2014 !


This award is a recognition from Microsoft for my late investment with their technologies. I have been active more offline late year (TechDays and various talks in Paris and Grenoble) and I’m looking forward seeing what I can bring in 2013-2014.
