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 platform stacks.

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.

      Great video Charles.

      A very fine example of how .NET can help and assist those who do not have a programming background solve problems.

      Great video. It's always cool to see non-technie achieve their goals through the ease of use of .NET.

      It's amazing how someone can pick up programming at such a short period of time to do things that could have taken days in the past.
