New Workshop! Developing Modern User Interfaces Using WinRT

I am offering a new workshop that is dedicated to developing Windows Store Apps using WinRT and related technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, CSS, XAML and C#. The workshop is intended for people who want to find out whether Windows Store Apps are a good option for your application development in addition to or instead of desktop/web application development. It takes 1 or 2 days depending on your needs and offers insights to the exiting world of Windows Store App development.

You can find more details here (German only).

HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 Specialist

As part of continuously maintaining my certifications, I passed the exam Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3.
Although a lot of developers think that JavaScript is a poor programming language compared to Java or C#, mainly due to it’s weak typing and limited IDE support, it is impressive to see what you can do with it. The main key to understanding is to abandon the notion that JavaScript is an OO language. The name JavaScript is really misleading as it implies that JavaScript is close to Java. But beside the curly braces there is not much common ground.

By passing the exam I achieved the additional certification Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 Specialist
