ShareCamp 2014 - My first visit

This year I was finally able to get time off to go to ShareCamp near Munich and meet people from the community and listen to a lot of new features, ideas and concepts. I really like the style of community driven events like this one, because it is a lot more open  to different kind of ideas or approaches and stuff you can show off.

I think that this concept is one of the best ones I've seen in a long time. Of course I took a couple of pictures and I gonna post them at the end of this text.  I won't go into too much technical detail, because I want to give you a feeling about how this got done during this weekend.

Let's face it: most of the time, people are just talking and talking and won't show you a lot of stuff. But at ShareCamp I saw a lot of actual work, which was great. Of course you won't be able to get to every lecture (it's sad) which forces you to pick the most interessting for you. In my case I was listening to VMs (SharePoint) in Azure (by Patrick Heyde), Windows Phone 8.1, ShareCoffee (created by Thorsten Hans), SharePoint App Development (AngularJS & REST API) on Saturday. It was more development stuff than I had planned, but what the hell: Sometimes you just have to run with it.

It was a lot of fun to listen to the people who were talking, even when things got a bit bumpy. The picture I took during those lecture aren't that good, but I think it's enough for a little impression.

I liked it a lot and hopefully I will get some of the PowerPoint or codes from the lectures.
