You can even view Rob’s Netherlands presentation on Microsoft Channel 9.

Rob Miles of the department has been presenting at Microsoft conferences over the last few weeks. He has given sessions on the .NET Micro Framework and Windows Phone development at DevDays 2010 in the Netherlands and TechDays 2010 in London. Last week he was due to travel to Portugal to present there, but the volcanic ash cloud stopped him in his tracks.
Not one to be beaten however, he covered his office wall with Portuguese flags and conference logos and did the entire presentation using a webcam, two laptops and an assortment of robots. By all accounts it was well received, some even said it was preferable to having him there!

You can find the presentation here. You can find out more about the presentation at Rob’s blog, here.
