Speaking at the MsDevMtl Community

Leave a comment

For those of you living in the Montreal area, Monday night (April 27th), I will make a presentation at the MsDevMtl Community.  This event is free and takes place at the Montreal Microsoft Office (2000 McGill College, 5th floor). I am speaking at 18h30.

I will do a talk about “Open Source, the Cloud and the New Microsoft”. During this presentation, we will try to explain the strategic reasons for the 180 degrees shift by Microsoft during the past year. Please note that this talk will be in French.  

Open Source, le Cloud et le “Nouveau” Microsoft
Lors de cette présentation, nous tenterons d’expliquer les raisons stratégiques du virage à 180 degré de Microsoft lors de la dernière année.  Comment comprendre le lancement d’une version tablette de Microsoft Office pour IOS et Android avant le lancement du même produit pour Windows 10?  Pourquoi Microsoft annonce que la mise à jour vers Windows 10 sera gratuite? Doit-on comprendre que Windows n’est plus important pour Microsoft? Comment expliquer l’adoption massive de l’open source de manière officielle en octobre 2014.  Pourquoi Microsoft fait maintenant la promotion d’applications universelles et permet d’aisément déployer des applications .Net sur Macintosh et Linux? Qu’est ce qui explique que Microsoft vise le marché du consommateur et semble délaisser le marché entreprise? Autant de question que nous chercherons à élucider.
