After a whole day of listening to different speakers talking about various technologies and topics, the Microsoft In-VIRT-Edu2012 finally ended. Yes, VIRT as in virtual. From morning til past 4 pm, I was sitting in front of my PC and signing onto virtual conference rooms every after ~2 hours.

Wait, HACKER school? Read More →

I’ll share with you today the articles that caught my eye from my most visited sites (in no particular order). Read More →
