Before we resume normal programming, I want everybody to check out IglooConf (http://iglooconf.fi/) in Helsinki. IglooConf is the largest purely Azure event in the Nordics and it is happening next week on 18-19 January. Different groups have for long advocated on the benefits of open source and it seems that finally Microsoft has agreed. The saying "if you can't beat them, join them" might be a bit harsh but also quite apt. Microsoft has finally come to see that there is a lot of business sense in joining many others in developing open source software in addition to their old software.
