As Operations Director at TEKenable I’m responsible for making sure that the software we create for our clients is delivered on time, within budget and using the best tools available.
That’s an exciting role and one that requires constantly keeping on top of the latest software development trends. So, if you combine this with our status as a ‘Gold’ Microsoft application development partner it’s only natural that I’m a big fan of Microsoft Connect ()
Microsoft Connect () (and yes, it’s written with a bracket, developers love brackets!) is the company’s biggest annual event for the developer community and it’s where we normally get to hear about the latest demos, technical sessions and developments tools.
It’s also an important event for Microsoft as it allows the company to present its vision for the year ahead and share the latest ‘stuff’ with developers.
This year was no exception. I’ve recently been looking at videos from the 2017 Connect () event held in New York on November 15-17 and as usual there’s lots to learn.
I’ve summarised some of the key points as I see them below – with an emphasis on new features that will make life easier for developers! and bear in mind it’s not an exhaustive list, but first a quick look at the overarching theme of Connect () 2017. This year’s event was entitled ‘Any Developer, Any App, Any Platform’ and to me it’s clear why.
