Second Mobile IT PRO & DEV in Lisbon


After a period of some inactivity due to my involvement on the biggest Portuguese mobility event, the Second IT PRo & DEV, I am now back.

As for the seminar, this year we had two full days, the first one dedicated to the developer community and the second day for the IT community.

On the first day, for developers we had a panel of speakers that included Radu Motisan from Teksoft, Alexander Shargin from SPB, and Renato Haddad, a Brazilian MVP, that joined us via Live Meeting.

We also had Francisco Chaves local MCB leader and portuguese MVP’s João Paulo Figueira and Alberto Silva.

Sessions ranged from LINQ programming for Windows Mobile (by Renato Haddad) to extending a Windows Mobile device functionality by connecting it to a microcontroller in order to turn on or off an led (by Radu Motinsan).


On the second day, we had Carlos Oliveira, responsible for the MyPhone product and the new Microsoft R&D center in Braga – Portugal.

National operator Optimus also participated, as well as device distributors MDevices and Brighpoint.

We also had a very interesting session on OCS by Miguel Teixeira with some new interesting features of Office Communications Server for Windows Mobile.
