The Microsoft Development Center in Copenhagen (MDCC)
recently held it's second TechFest. Each year (this is year two of TechcFest) the good folks at MDCC
put on a show where local (Denmark and other northern European countries) innovators show off their wares. I was lucky enough to spend a day learning about some of the great things small ISVs and scholars are creating on Microsoft and non-Microsoft development
Here, we learn about an innovative use of .NET for developing a complex information management system in a bioresearch lab that focuses on the development of vaccines (you can imagine how much data they need to organize, retrieve, evaluate...). These two researchers
are not developers, but they managed to build a powerful information storage and retrireval system using VS Express! Very cool.
