ITCamp on your mobile

May 19th, 2013

Even if we don't have an official mobile presence ourselves, Florin Cardașim (one of our regular ITCamp speakers) has helped prepare a simple mobile application that he's planning to use as a demo during his session this year.

The application lets you view the agenda, session and speaker information for our upcoming event. So, if you are among the 350+ people attending ITCamp this year, you might find this useful:

Please keep in mind that this is only a proof of concept for a session demo and not an official mobile app created specifically for our conference. This means that even if there are any features you might be "missing", it's likely it won't be something that you'll see in a future version.

Even so, having the agenda in your pocket is pretty handy - so thanks, Florin!

A word from one of our sponsors

May 8th, 2013

, one of this year's Gold sponsors at ITCamp has been kind enough to share with us why they decided to attend ITCamp - György Birtolon, Head of Operations at Evoline had this to say (in Romanian):

„MVC, Azure, Cloud, Agile, Scrum câștigă tot mai mult teren în companie ca și tehnologii și metodologii pe care le folosim, iar colegii care au participat în 2012 la eveniment au avut doar cuvinte de laudă, acesta fiind un PR extraordinar prin care s-a setat un interes mare din partea noastră. Fără îndoială, IT Camp este un forum tehnic de o calitate foarte bună, cu speakeri și teme interesante, oferind o bună oportunitate colegiilor noștri - și prin ei companiei bineînțeles - să afle impresii, experiențe, tehnici, scenarii despre tehnologiile și metodologiile cele mai noi în această lume globala a IT-ului. Faptul că evenimentul este organizat în Cluj este doar cireașa de pe tort. Baftă pentru toți!”

Evoline is sending more than 50 people to ITCamp this year!

What is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP)?

April 22nd, 2013

The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award is Microsoft's way of saying 'thank you' to exceptional, independent community leaders who share their passion, technical expertise, and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with others.

We are happy to announce that we will have 17 MVPs as speakers at ITCamp 2013!

What is a Microsoft Regional Director (RD)?

April 21st, 2013

The Microsoft Regional Director (RD) program is a community of independent developers, architects, trainers, and other professionals who form a vital link between Microsoft and the developer community. These technical experts provide insight and informed perspectives about Microsoft software development tools and technologies. Regional Directors are not Microsoft employees, nor are they financially-compensated by Microsoft. They are recognized by Microsoft for their technical expertise. There are approximately 200 Regional Directors worldwide.

And we are happy to announce that we will have 4 of them at ITCamp this year!
