Had so much fun this week. Great conversations - mostly about web and mobile. Saw friends and learned lots. #ndcoslo #ndc2017

Happy that my session was first up, so I got to see heaps of great sessions too. Finished with the best NDC party... Take On Me - not by a-ha, instead by a great 80s band Love Shack

Bye Oslo, Norway. See you next year. 👋

Been to Norway 🇳🇴 many times but yesterday was the first time I'd seen the "Real Norway".

I wonder if now I'll always think of Oslo as "Swedish Occupied Norway" 😘

Thanks for the many birthday wishes. For my birthday I get to speak here in Kristiansand.

Then off to the NDC Conference !!

It's been a good week. Before I left Sydney yesterday we had a great day getting the lights in our new office going. It's powered by our Control4 automation system.

Video: SSW.reno – lights working !!

Many parts of the renovation are not fun, but this part was. If you’re around, drop over and have a look. This is next to our current office – opposite the Oaks Hotel, Neutral Bay.

Now I'm heading to NDC Oslo - Testing Emirates wifi at 36.000 feet - over Tehran, Iran 🇮🇷

Eve has been having blue screens on her SurfaceBook and she thought I'd agree to let her get a MacBook. Nice try.
Anyway the Microsoft Store swapped it out for the new SurfaceBook Performance Base 1TB. Great 👍

Then we get home and open Outlook and then the fan comes on...

Eve gives a big unexpected sigh and in a very serious voice says:
"This is the first sign... the PC has started getting puffed out already!"

I said "It's just the fan"
Eve said "Dad just a fan now. Just a blue screen next"

I guess iPads are quiet and have changed youngsters expectations. This is the first time I've thought, that hearing the PC fan periodically, is a negative experience.

Goodbye USA 🇺🇸
I owe a big thank you to many Microsofties (especially Jennifer Ritzinger and Chris Olsen) and all of my Microsoft Regional Director colleagues. So many of you had a big impact and made the first time conference experience amazing for my little angel Ruby.

You chatted with her, explained technology to her and made her feel welcome. I always knew you guys were super smart, but this year I saw a sweet side to so many of you. I guess that is why you are employed by Microsoft or RDs in the first place. Ruby was jazzed the whole week and finishing off with time with Pat Hynds and Scott Cate was awesome. She loved the group dinner too.

Poor Richard Campbell fielded endless questions about technology and Microsoft's history on our drive to Canada. 🇨🇦

Ruby did a blog post that I'm sure she'll remember forever

I wonder what will happen next year? I hope to see some more kids at Microsoft's Build Conference.

Too awesome not to share – I’m honored and excited to have been renewed for another 2 years as a Microsoft Regional Director for Australia.

I feel so privileged to continue working with such an amazing group of people.

Congrats to my good friends who were also renewed. Of course, it is sad for me to see many friends who were not renewed. I’ll miss seeing you at the RD events, but I’m sure we’ll remain friends forever.

Finally, thanks to all the brilliant guys I work with at SSW for keeping me sharp.
