I could say, that June is my favorite month as it is the invitation for summer. Yet this year, June seems to have past in a second. I have been to Istanbul, attended the Yazgelistir Summit, got caught in some crazy rainy weather, which was then followed by “get fried in the city” temperatures; met with family+friends over nice tea and Turkish coffee, got one year older, travelled back with 3+12 hour flights, attended right away SoCal CodeCamp in San Diego and *blink* – it is already July. I actually had an unbelievable, happy and exciting start to July, but more about that in my upcoming posts!
Recently I have published a series of mini-reports about the Yazgelistir Summit on SilverlightShow. During the event, I also got the chance to interview Daron Yondem, who is a Microsoft Regional Director for MEA, currently a Silverlight MVP and also the lead for INETA Turkey. If you haven’t already discovered the report series; why don’t you check them out?
Yazgelistir Summit Report Series: Daron Yondem Interview
Part1: Daron on Silverlight activities in MEA, Silverlight 4 and Windows Phone 7 Series
Part2: Daron Yondem on upcoming Silverlight releases, the Silverlight community in Turkey and SilverlightShow
It was great to have a chance to come together with the Microsoft developer community in Istanbul and get a glimpse of their networking activities and project plans. Today we may just keep track of each other’s work and activities overseas, tomorrow we may be designing and building software together. The world is truly getting smaller.
