Demo context:

This week in our Dutch webcast two demos, the HoloLens Teaser and a Docker Intro. We asked Roy Janssen to give us a quick intro of what we can expect in his sessions at the SDN Event next week September 2nd and we also did a Docker Demo as a follow up of one of our earlier SDN Casts where we discussed the Docker Conference a couple of weeks ago.


This week a HoloLens Teaser to warm us up for next week’s event we organized: SDN Event op 2 september. Roy is showing us what you can do with the HoloLens and is showing what Augmented Reality is all about. Next week in the SDN Event session he will deep dive into the HoloLens in a special session giving an overview of the options you have to develop for the HoloLens by showing use of the tools and applications available. His company can be found at his website


A couple of weeks ago we discussed the Docker Conference in our Events section. As promised back then, this week we finally demoed in our 16th Dutch SDN Cast Docker for Windows to show you how quick and easy it is to set up a running Docker environment on your Windows machine and use some of the images available on

We hope you like watching our Dutch SDN Casts to catch up in about an hour on the topics that are hot for this week and hear the latest news and see the great demo’s on technology and software development that you can apply in your real world scenarios.

Demo context:

In the SDN Cast Demo we tried to get an old .NET Forms application to be ported to .NET Core by switching out the backend using Entity Framework Core and existing databases. This didn’t go all that smooth but got it to work in the end showing the principle of how to get your hands on it and show what kind of issues you can run into doing this.

Here is a link we used to get us in the right direction:
