This was my first MVP Summit and it was definitely interesting. Besides meeting other MVPs and Microsoft officials, like various product groups, evangelists and community managers, new products and ideas have been presented. Additionally I could spent some time on valuable discussions about current and future features of certain products.
Since I cannot write about most of the really interesting content, I will focus in this post on two other things: The Mobile World Congress, which has been scheduled nearly parallel to the global summit, and a future upcoming GUI framework called HtmlSharp (working title).
The Mobile World Congress (MWC) has been held in Barcelona, Spain. Intel invited the Sumerics team to present our software at the Intel Developer Zone (IDZ) booth. Since I've been in the USA during the MWC, my development partner had to fly to Spain. After some days of advertising Sumerics, his conclusion is that the MWC was indeed a success from the perspective of Sumerics. The overall reception was quite good and he could present the product to a lot of curious people.
The project is currently in the design phase and the reception has been enormous. Let's see where this is going!
