SDN Cast 61 with guests Sjoukje Zaal and Alexander Meijers


This week we had guests Sjoukje Zaal and Alexander Meijers at our weekly Dutch SDN Cast episode 61. Sjoukje and Alexander are active in their User Groups SPCNL and MixUG so we discussed the topics in relation to this.

With SPCNL their website will provide an updated view on all things related to SharePoint, Office365, Office and Azure and with MixUG they have a User Group where they organize meetups themed around Mixed Reality and everything related to that.

We discuss subjects like AI, Machine Learning, Cognitive Services, HoloLens, Unity, Vuforia and more. What are the differences between Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and Virtual Reality? We are diving deep into the subject matter ..

As usual we are always looking for presenters for our own events and Meetup’s so if you want to share something about hot technologies or just about something you implemented at work or in an App that could be interesting to our audience let us know so we can schedule you for one or our next SDN events or Dutch .NET Group Meetups.

This off course also goes for if you want to write a great article for us to publish in our SDN Magazines or at our SDN Website. The downside of publishing a magazine article is that there can be some time between writing the article and publishing the magazine. So, if it is time critical sometimes the best option is to publish it on the website to get more speedy attention to the article.

As you see, options enough to address your audience with top notch information. You can even, if you like, be our guest in our SDN Cast shows to discuss the projects you are working on or other topics you master. We will instruct you how to connect with us and what it is you need to join the show.

Hopefully we will see you at our weekly web cast, for the schedule go to for next week’s announcement to find out the day and time of our next broadcast or go to to watch old episodes and videos that we recorded at our events. Don’t forget to subscribe our YouTube channel or go directly to YouTube not to miss any of our shows!

Software News and Events for Week 40/41- .NET, Dynamics and HoloLens

SDNCast 24

Last week Microsoft was in the Amsterdam RAI with their TechDays 2016. A two-day conference with lots of great sessions to learn a thing or two. Marcel Meijer, Fanie Reynders and I were there as well in the Experts Lounge to answer some questions from the community and to look at some sessions ourselves and learn. While we were around anyway, we decided that it would be a good idea to take some interviews with some of the speakers and record scenes from the venue just for entertainment purposes. You can go to to watch the results of it. Keep in mind that as our audience is Dutch the recordings are also Dutch for the large part.

As we skipped the week of news and events, we covered this week the news and events for two weeks. Fanie couldn’t make it this week and he is also very busy preparing his sessions for next week at our Dutch .NET Meetup.

Where can you find the Dutch SDN Cast edition 24?
