Technical Summit 2014 Berlin – A short recab

Hi everybody,

like some of you already know, we had a great technical event sponsored by Microsoft in Berlin this week.

Im talking about the Microsoft Technical Summit for IT Pros and Developers.

For me it was really great to be there, not only because I was able to see Microsofts new CEO Satya Nadela live on stage or to listen to amazing speakers talking about new awesome or current Microsoft Magic. For me it’s like a Family Meeting :)

I was able to see some really good friends from all over europe like Carsten Rachfahl, Benedikt Berger, Didier van Hoye or many many others and take place in a very constructive IT Pro discussion with Peter Abitter, Michael Korb and Patrick Heyde from Microsoft.

My Community peer Manuel and I also used the chance to do some promotion for the Microsoft Windows Server User Group Berlin and grape some presents for our members. You maybe see us in the videos, Microsoft made. ;)
