SDN Cast 29 Week 47 News and Events – Happy Holidays, Black Friday and Cyber Monday


Traditionally from a US point of view one of the main sources for news and information on Software Development is shutting down. It is the week in the United States where everybody is moving home to celebrate their annual day of Thanksgiving to eat turkey and much more than that. No one is releasing any news in this week or even the week after (we did find a few exceptions as you can see in the news overview below). The day after Thanksgiving retail stores start their big day of sales called Black Friday, who hasn’t seen the videos where large groups of people all run into the stores falling over each other and steal products from other customers baskets? Following Black Friday there is Cyber Monday, originally meant to do the same as Black Friday but now for online retail stores. Both days did merge a bit and we see a whole week of online offers on great discounts. What did you buy today?

Even though it’s quiet this week we did find some interesting news items and discussed it at our SDN Cast this week. The number of events is dropping around this time, Connect(); by Microsoft was about the one big closing event. The videos are currently available on Channel9 if you want to watch them.
