On October 23rd, Nick Trogh, a well-known Azure evangelist and Technical Lead from Microsoft Western Europe, will join Luxembourg MVP Steve Melan, Head of IT Innovation and Senior Architect at BCEE, to present API Development in Azure.
The series of evening events will feature in-depth technical discussions, bringing together everyone from software developers to tech leads from around Luxembourg and the Greater Region to learn, network and have fun. “There are many tech events organized in Luxembourg, but we noticed that these are mostly aimed at business people and CIOs,” says Eric Busch, CEO of Nexten. “We saw the need to offer high-quality Tech Talks that would bring together the behind-the-scenes technical people from across the tech community to create connections and build momentum. This forms part of our long-term mission to support Luxembourg’s development as an international tech hub,” he explains.
Creating a Developer Culture in Luxembourg
Steve Melan, the first developer from Luxembourg to be awarded Microsoft’s prestigious MVP Award, is one of several local tech experts called on by Nexten as an event advisor, to ensure that the talks address the most relevant topics for the local community and attract key international experts. “I believe these tech talks can create change in the local culture. People simply go home at 6 o’clock – there isn’t much community after working hours,” he says. “We need to create that tech community. Whether it’s launching projects together, coding together, or sharing knowledge, we can create a great culture that will bring together local developers and convince new ones to come to Luxembourg.”
Registration is now open to the first Tech Talk on Wednesday, October 23rd, focused on API Development in Azure. The free event runs from 5:30-9:00pm in Luxembourg City and features a joint talk with demos by the two speakers, followed by an audience discussion and casual drinks.
