DWX 2016 – day 1

This is a short report of the 1st day of the Developer Week (DWX) 2016 currently held at Nuremberg. I was here for the first time last year. For it was an impressive event, my expectations were very high. What shall I say, I am not disappointed. Again, the sessions are divided into 10 thematic tracks. The choice is hard. The good thing is that the slides of the talks are all available later.

The conference started with a great keynote by Jurgen Appelo who told us about Managing for Happiness, which was quite inspiring. Then, I listened to David Tielke who proposed an overview over the Composite Components Architecture. Although it was not really new to me, there were some interesting thoughts and approaches I will share with my co-workers. David Würfel informed us about some core tools regarding WPF development. His talk was named The WPF First Aid Kit. The last two talks today for me were given by Andi Grabner. They both were about metrics, Top Performance Fehler in .NET and Metrik gesteuertes DevOps und Continuous Delivery, respectively.

To sum it up, the sessions today were either an eye-opener to me or gave me some deeper insight or a new approach to things I already have in mind.

So far, the event brought valuable information to me personally as well as to my daily business life. As it did last year…

Be curious about my report tomorrow.
