Announcing developer Keynote and two breakout sessions at Microsoft WinDays 13

Microsoft WinDays is one of the largest, and coolest, Microsoft conferences in Europe. I could try to put it in numbers: > 2000 attendees, so-and-so much breakout sessions,  cool speakers from allover the Europe (and some from the United States), but it would be just that – the numbers. To fully understand Microsoft WinDays, you need to attend it at least once. Believe me, it’s not like most of the other conferences in Europe. Nope.


Microsoft WinDays is organized by Microsoft Croatia, and since years it takes part in some of the most beautiful cities at the Croatian Adriatic coast. It used to be in Opatija, it used to be in Rovinj, now it is in Umag. It is hard to tell which one is more beautiful. Microsoft WinDays Conference itself is well-known by it’s work hard, play hard motto, so it always offers some of the coolest conference parties you could imagine.

But it is about the “work hard” part now – this year, I have honor to participate in developers keynote (yay!), and I have as well two breakout sessions on my own.

In the Developer Keynote, I will talk and demo Office and SharePoint Apps, Napa, and some more sweeties which we have got with SharePoint 2013 and Office 2013. The cool stuff, you know.

The “How did I migrate my mother in law’s email and staid alive” session is my first IT Pro session ever. No, I will not go IT Pro path in my life, but the whole Office 365 story was so fascinating to me, that I have decided to share my own experiences with this Microsoft’s cloud flagship.

What is new for developers in SharePoint 2013” is exactly what it sounds like – I will present some of the new cool developer toys which came with the SharePoint 2013, focusing mainly on apps and Workflow Manager.


My two PlanB. colleagues, Dubravko Marak and Aleksandar Draskovic are also having sessions at Microsoft WinDays.

Dubravko’s session “SCCM 2012 and Windows Intune – a complete management platform” talks about, who could have guessed, about Windows Intune. Open-mouthed smile

Aleksandar’s session could be called “Listen to the master when he speaks” (Aleksandar is Microsoft Certified Master for SharePoint 2010), but it is not. Modestly, he has called his session “Successful planning of the SharePoint architecture, and how to survive itSmile


So, see you in Umag! Don’t forget to bring a good mood, the will to learn something new, and the will to party hard during all that time. I’m looking forward seeing you there.
