2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 24,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 6 Film Festivals

TechEd 2012, Australia

At TechEd 2012 this time it was all about Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. As I am a developer, I attended all the Windows 8 sessions and the AppFest. It was a joy learning about Windows 8 and Metro (which is officially called Mordern UI Sytle) App development at #AppFest.

On Monday I flew early morning from Sydney to Gold cost and went straight to Gold Coast Convention Center for AppFest. The AppFest was hands-on coding time in the ultimate 24-hour hackathon for building Windows 8 apps, before TechEd kicked off. It was great fun and learning experience building an app for Legal Aid NSW office search. I developed this application overnight. Next day, I presented my app on a Samsung tablet with Windows 8 along with many others who did the same.
