Shape – the App conference April 10, 2013

On the 9th of April, yesterday, I attended Shape, the app conference, in Baden, Switzerland.

There, I presented a session regarding Multi Targeting development for Windows Store and Windows Phone apps.

I had a lot of fun while writing the demo App with the surprise that on the night of the previous day, 8th of April, I tested around 23:00 pm my demo and it stopped working. After a while, saw that my demo’s OData provider was off… definitely!

You can read about it here: http://odata.netflix.com/, but to keep it short “as of April 8th, 2013, this service is no longer available.” resumes it pretty well.

Anyway this was good because It took 5 to 10 minutes to plug-in another OData service, even it was never as cool as seeing the latest movies…

My slides and demo are on SkyDrive, available <<here>>

Thanks to Microsoft for the organization and the attendees for their interest!!
