After the 1st C# Corner Istanbul Chapter Event(with Photos)

By Ibrahim Ersoy Dec 02, 2012
We talked about Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 Development with developer was a nice talk for me!
We announced the event a couple of days ago,we behaved quick but first event was done with 7 awesome guys.

Me and my friend Erdem Tuzen talked about Windows 8 and Windows Phone Development.Erdem did some great applications in WinJS in Turkey and the applications he developed are great business applications.

While he talked about WinJS and HTML5,i talked about XAML Development on Windows 8.

To make it look like different,i converted the presentation session into argue platform.After i shared my thoughts uppon a matter,i instantly let other developers share theirs ideas as well.Because the problem of many sessions are; you join a session,listen to the presenter,ask a question if you're allowed...That looked so unfriendly to me.So i decided everyone talk,share ideas and ask questions any time.And we did that way.

it was a nice event for me.But the Wifi connection was low i think,since we did LIVE STREAMING for our 1st event in a Starbucks,i think it was a nice last minute addition to present to developers,users who wish to be with us but cannot.

Well its Turkish but when i post English subtitle version of the event on Youtube,i will let you know!
