    It was a really nice event and I am glad to have a chance to meet with Laurent and discuss some point 1-1 with him. However, the time could be used better, because Laurent had pretty less time to explain some important points and he had to finish the demo although he would like to explain something more. May be in the next event, that point can be considered and time reservation can be more flexible.

    Great introduction to Windows 8 development in general. Covered the basics of MVVM and several code samples of how to use the components of the MVVM Light toolkit.
