Wow, I’ve just received the Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) award for 2014 in the new area “Windows Platform Development”.
Thanks to all the people who made that possible. Thanks to all the readers of my books & articles, thanks to the participants of my public talks, thanks to the MSDN-team and the forum members, thanks to the colleagues at Trivadis and my Boss Benno and thanks to Microsoft Switzerland for their great support. Thanks to all my friends and a special big THANK YOU to my wife. I love you!
Thanks to all who joined my sessions at TechDays in Basel. Also a big thanks to Microsoft Switzerland for organizing this great and successful event. I really enjoyed the two days of networking with awesome people.
Please find the slides and demos of my talks on my homepage by selecting the talk:
Wow, on 1st of July I’ve received my very first Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) award. I received it in the area “Client Development”.
Thanks to all the people out there in the .NET/C#/XAML-community, thanks to all the readers of my books, articles and blog-posts, thanks to the participants of my public talks, thanks to the colleagues at Trivadis and thanks to Microsoft Switzerland for their great support. In the end I want to thank my family and all the friends and people supporting me in any technical and non-technical way. You’re awesome!
In Germany, Switzerland and Austria I’ll give a three-day-training on Windows Store Apps. If you or your company have interest on this professional training, directly contact me via http://www.thomasclaudiushuber.com/contact.php. It is possible to train you in the Trivadis-Trainings centers or onsite at your office.
So far so good, let’s look at the past and the future
Puh, this was year was really instensive. Here the straight plan I had so far:
January: Buy new home
February: My second daughter Sara was born.
March: Finish the manuscript for the book
April:Renovate and improve new home (thanks to Makita )
… in all months: Working as a consultant and trainer @Trivadis.
So the future contains much more spare time, it’s necessary, because I say “Time is money is not true, time is unpayable”. I want to spend as much as I can with my kids, my wife, family and friends (See also this awesome post from Tim on that topic). So the future plan looks like this:
June: Finish a WPF-project as a consultant and enjoy the free weekends
July: Parental leave
August: Parental leave
September: Back to work, speaking at basta (www.basta.net) and at Trivadis-internal TechEvent
The app looks like below. By touching an empty space in the yellow area, an Image is inserted. The image can be grabbed with a finger or with the mouse-cursor and moved around. The app works also with multiple fingers. You can grab multiple images at once and move them around.
If you´ve feedback to the code, feel free to comment.
As I´m really busy the next weeks/months with the writing of the Windows Store Apps-book, I´m not able to give you big support on the code. Use it or not.
I’m proud to announce that the ultimate handbook about Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) in .NET 4.5 is in stores now. Order your copy of the German-Speaking Topseller about WPF directly here on Amazon:
