Demo time

Fanie Reynders this week demo’ed Azure Portal, showing many new options in Azure Portal. Maarten van Stam was updating .NET Core ( 1.0.1 live on the show and shows the new trend, developing JavaScript Desktop applications using Electron ( It’s cross platform to build Desktop Applications. Many large applications already have been in the open already and a good example for that is Microsoft Visual Studio Code. This runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. In the meantime, Marcel Meijer surprised us with a WordPerfect demo. The underwater screen is back from where it came from. So watch the show for a great impression, but you need to speak Dutch ;-).

We hope you like watching our Dutch SDN Casts to catch up in a bit more than 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.
