This was Insider Dev Tour Vienna

2018-06-21 | Toni Pohl

Yesterday, on June 20th, the Insider Dev Tour (see took place in our home town Vienna. It’s a roadshow for software developers in the Microsoft universe delivering the latest news about Windows, Azure, Office, Graph, AI technology and more. I enjoyed being part of the event along with my fellow MVP colleagues and the Windows Development community.

The content was more or less pre-defined and included demos and code-focused overviews of the new developer technologies coming out of Redmond. The topics included building native Win32/XAML apps and Progressive Web Apps, how to connect with new ecosystems using the Microsoft Graph and Windows Timeline (my session), how to add AI (Artificial Intelligence) into your projects, and how to bring your experiences into the next dimension through Mixed Reality and more.

The #InsiderDevTour took place in about 40 locations world wide. Each event got it’s own page, for Vienna it`s


In Vienna there were about 100 participants – despite of beautiful summer weather. Since we had English speaking attendees as well, all sessions were held in English.

So, the agenda included these sessions:

The attendees signaled their answers with arms at the “Head” or “Tails”. It was fun.
