Microsoft Student Hackathon 2015 in Oslo

On the 18th to the 19th of September, Microsoft Norway and myself are inviting students to attend a hackathon event at Microsoft’s headquarters at Lysaker Torg 45. It’s a tradition and I’ve participated a couple of times during my period at The Norwegian School of Information Technology now knows as Westerdals Oslo School of Arts, Communication and Technology (Westerdals ACT). It is quite the honor to be on the other side of the table this time and my good friend Anders Gill (Technical Evangelist) and I will kick things off with a thirty minute presentation each where we’ll be talking about Windows 10, Universal Windows Platform, Azure and the new Windows Bridge for Android and iOS.

For those into gaming there will be competitions in FIFA and Halo as well, so come on down on the 18th of September and join us in creating awesome new ideas, apps and websites!

Make sure to visit the post over at Channel9 where we have made a little promotional video or just watch it here and remember to sign up at this page.

 

Hope to see you there!

 

 

Tool: Switch between Dark or Light theme on Windows 10

If you’ve been following news regarding Windows 10 lately there’s a good chance you have probably picked up that it’s possible to switch Windows 10 over to a Dark theme. It requires fiddling with the registry and there are some guides out there on how to do it, but why go through any trouble? I discovered today that my good friend and brother had released a simple tool that you can use to switch between Dark and Light themes.
